Miura Golf of Japan makes the world’s finest forged golf clubs, designed and manufactured by patriarch and club expert Katsuhiro Miura with the help of his sons Yoshitaka and Shinei, whom he trained.
Miura makes its forged clubs — irons, wedges and putters — in the company’s one factory and one forge, both in the city of Himeji, which was for centuries the seat of the ancient Japanese art of samurai sword making. While demand for those weapons has diminished, the generations of steelmaking skill and passion have not — and these are the attributes that the Miura family brings to the creation of the world’s best golf weapons.
Katsuhiro Miura, who began making golf clubs in 1957, hand-grinds clubs in his factory every day alongside Yoshitaka Miura, while Shinei Miura supervises the forging. Miura clubs are made one by one, using many handcrafting processes, and will never be mass produced. Special forging techniques assure that the grain of the steel in each club will be fine and uniform, with no voids or tiny bubbles that could interfere with the famous Miura purity of the strike. This grain, more comparable to a jar of sand than a jar of marbles, is the result of careful and patient forging and finishing, and it sets Miura apart from other clubs.
Redesigned, refined, and rejuvenated:
Wedges that put the Miura family’s lifelong learning into golf action
It takes the soul of an artist and the mind of an engineer to improve on beautiful, effective golf clubs. That’s the spirit behind Miura’s New Wedge Series.
The New Wedge Series from Miura, the world’s preeminent maker of quality forged golf clubs, preserves the eternal elements of the “old” Series and adds refinements that make the clubs a pleasure to look at and a joy to play. Now in odd-numbered lofts from 51 degrees through 59, the New Series features redesigned bounce angles that work well with the way thinking players like to play golf. Leading edge and bounce angle combine for a quality impact that leads to a crisp, consistent divot. Distance control and feel are available to the player like never before.
Then there’s the visual pleasure of a fine chrome finish, topped by a new, understated Japanese character — or kanji — that translates best as “striving,” or “noble effort.”
