Rust looks very workman like. Calling rust "patina" is only for sissies trying to make their rusty putter sound more expensive for their BST ad. No, your rusty putter is not "developing a nice patina", it's a rust bucket!
Contrary to popular belief, rust on a putter is NOT oxidation. It's the leftover residue from a long history of birdie putts and par saves.
EDIT: Electrical grade silicone spray works great. Protects and cleans without the greasy mess.

Makes it look battle tested. Shiny putters are great, but I don't tangle with people that look like they have been battling back hoards of par putts.

Unless it's plated (like with nickel or copper), carbon is always going to rust. Black oxide and gun blue help slow it down but what you're really doing is pre-empting the rust by making the iron oxidize on your terms before nature can do its thing.

Personally I would have the head polished and torched back to a deep blue.

I used it on my carbon steel putter and it never thought about rusting. What persuaded me to use it was a gun enthusiast on a gun forum took an old revolver and coated half of it with Eezox and left the other half untreated...he then threw it out in the snow for a month or two. After that time elapsed he brought it in and the part that was coated with Eezox looked brand new......the untreated half was rusted to death. I was sold.
You can find it on Amazon and the price is based on the different amounts available. I went with the 1.5 oz bottle. Pretty cheap and worth every penny. I wiped my putter down about every 3-5 weeks and no rust ever formed on that putter.
