I also have a putter exactly as described. No, I am not a racist, Nazi sympathizer, or anything remotely associated with it. I also have a curiosty about the history of this putter which was given to me by my stepfather before he passed away several years ago (no, he was not German or a Nazi sympathizer either). I am an avid golfer (retired now) that just wants to know something about the history of this putter.
Holy crap guys ... the reactionary to knowledge ratio here is pretty high.
Swastikas are still common all over Asia as Budhist and Hindu symbols.
I lived in Taipei for awhile and you could tell the vegetarian Budhist restaurants by the giant red swastikas on their signs.
It doesn't surprise that they were used on goods in the west prior to WWII.
