Blade Putters are the traditionalists weapons of choice. Nicklaus won almost all his majors with this style of putter. They are heavily toe weighted putters, so will only really suit an open-square-closed stroke.
Famous pros who use or have used blade putters include:
Bobby Locke, Jack
Nicklaus, Gary Player, Lee Trevino,
Ben Crenshaw and Phil Mickelson.
Although they are not favored by many of today's pros, the great blade putter
users of the past have been amongst the greatest putters of all time, so there's
nothing to say you cannot be successful with one today.

Larger than average blade with original White Hot insert... beautiful to look at and great feel.

Odyssey White Hot 9
Classic blade shape with amazing weighting and feel. A superb putter - highly recommended.
on a Ping putter...
In our opinion, Ping's best effort at a blade putter
Ping J Blade
Possibly the ugliest putter Ping has ever made ... and it feels dreadful too!
A good looking wide-backed blade which resembles the Major winning TPA putters of the 80s & 90s
A little thin in the top portion of the blade, but otherwise a great looking putter with good blade feel
TaylorMade Rossa Kia Ma Fortuna
A highly refined mallet from TaylorMade - recommended!
This is THE classic blade, used by the stars of 1950s, 60s and 70s. The kind of putter that gives you confidence the moment you pick it up

A dramatic updating of the classic Wilson blade. Tremendous feel and drop dead gorgeous, too
