One of the rarest, and most desirable clubs produced by Mills (William Mills of Sunderland, England) is the Circa 1909 Mills MK Niblick. According to The Clubmaker's Art by Jeff Ellis, "[t]he Mills NK niblick, with its odd head shape and considerable loft, is a popular collectible." The club was designed to be a rescue club or sorts, and the 1909 Standard Golf catalog describes the club as hitting balls out of sand bunkers and bad lies with "wonderful ease."
