How to Refinish a Stainless Steel Putter in “Black Oxide”

Although you can’t use the Birchwood Casey Kit as shown in the Carbon Steel Black Oxide Tutorial, there is a product that produces a similar effect on a stainless steel putter.  Caswell’s Stainless Steel Blackener is a great finish to apply to a Scotty Cameron putter, or any other modern day putter.

Preliminary Steps-Before doing this finish, you must:

  • Remove the nicks and dings
  • Beadblast with 80-120 grit glass beads
  • Clean with dish soap and water
  • Rinse with distilled water (you won’t get a smooth finish if you rinse with regular water)

Materials Needed

Beadblast the club before you apply the sealer, but after you have applied the SS Blackener.
