I decided earlier this year to run my set into the ground and just deal with it WHEN the time comes.  Looks like my disdain of range time and 80 rounds a year will give me a solid 5 years on them though.....although I am planning on a lot of range time in the winter to not have to put it in so much for next summer....bit of a minor overhaul to figure out my face and possible pathing issues.

Does anybody have any insight or experience with the Miura-Giken Y grind blades and the Miuraism SB-01s?  The SB-01s seem similar to the BBs.

Have a set of MG 5003 with Y grind.  Had them made with no offset and small head option with reduces the size by a few mm.
The heads work fine on tight fairways.  Have never hit BB but these feel vey different to my MP 69 with the same shaft in both.

If was getting another set would definitely go with MG since there are so many options with no additional charge over retail.

The "Y Grind" seems to be less sharp on the leading edge of the sole.  I believe that there is more relief on the toe and heal of the sole as well. The point on the top line of the toe is pretty much in line with the toe edge of the grooves and comes to a pretty sharp point.  The top line is lower on the heal side as well.  I actually like the "Y Grind".  I have been looking at the 5005's with the "Y Grind"

As for Miuraism, they are cream of the crop and their cost shows it.  They will do whatever you want IF you are able to order a set.  I have been told that you need to live in Japan or at least go to Japan to be fit to even be eligible to order them.  Then again, I see them on the TSG site so, I might be mis-informed.

Love miuras pointy toe, and the baby blade is one of the best square toes in the business.  I wish more companies did this, I hate rounded toes, can't stand to address balls with irons thr don't have a a sharpish squarish toe.

I was looking at the 1007 y grind as a potential CB set candidate....

Best thing I did was get the small blades before almost writing off jdm all together.  They are not a difficult transition from my mp14s, and after playing my mp14s last week, I had a harder time hitting them than my miuras.

They are simply probably the best iron set ever.  If you are going to do it, do it all the way.  What I thought was bought as a range and fun play novelty when I pulled the trigger has turned into my serious gamer set that is the only thing I feel comfortable with if I am trying to put up a good score or playing a buddy for $.  I treat mine like they cost $100 becuase they have long passed that whole novelty of some ninja sword crap, they have become my set, my set to be used like a tool and rode hard and put away wet.  The chatter is getting worse, the faces are getting more gauges from debris, and The uglier they get the more beautiful they are to me and their feel no matter how familiar, never gets old.  They may not be for everyone, but if they are for you, be prepared to resign to stop HOing irons, this is the only set I have had that make everything else just look and feel wrong.  

I have bought a few jdm sets that I have regretted, including a 501/mb001 combo set fwiw.  I can't imagine anyone wanting blades to regret getting the small blades UNLESS you are a consistant toe side misser, or center misser in general.  I am a heel side misser and these clubs feel pure right to the point of hosel rocket, they love to be hit inside.  But 1/4" let alone half a ball toe side and they are not friendly or fun irons.  Probably not an issue, but worth mentioning.

THIS is VERY accurate. Period.

I don't know why I click on Miura threads... It's like clicking on an ad for escorts. But, it's almost worse because I know eventually I'm going to pull the trigger.

If you are going to go with one, just go with the little ones. I was surprised this year transitioning from Tourstage 701s to MR23 CBs. The CBs are smaller and, at first, that didn't inspire confidence, but after a couple times out I just didn't think about. I hit the center of the club, same as the old irons and I was on my way. Now I've got 3-sets of blades and another on the way, that I'm going to run through, including a set of TN87s, before eventually looking at Miuras. So far, I hit each iron about the same. Basically the only issue is the shaft.

This year, living in Japan, I've been fully immersed in learning about JDM (immersed or obsessed) I've learned a few things. To take advantage of fitting and customization you do either have to come here, or deal with sites that specialize. One thing I did learn is that Mizuno will do customization, grinds, finishes, paint for no up-charge when you go through one of their stores. So I could have the top line shaved down on all my irons and square off the toe and do the double nickel whatever and it's included in the retail price on their website - that's what a little Japanese ability will get you when you visit their headquarters in Osaka. Otherwise you've got to pay for it all. I'm sure Miura does something along those lines that as well. If/when I get to looking at these, I'd love to see what kind of work could be done to make them.

Hehehehe the BBs are a 'curse'.  When I got mine, they made my beloved mp67s feel like CBs and my mp60s feel like SGIs (relatively speaking).  Over time the mp60s completely lost their luster and so I put the Retro TBs on their shafts (Rifle 5.0s).  Going from BBs to CBs is like going from bareback to condom sex...ain't no way it feels the same...

Baby blades FTW!!!

They are the easiest and best feeling irons that I have ever played.  I also have a set of Miura Retro TBs, and while they are a fine iron, the baby blades are still the better choice in all categories.

Best.  Irons.  Ever.

Once I saw the Baby Blades may be discontinued, I grabbed a set of new heads a few weeks back, satin finish, no paintfill, which looks pretty cool. Haven't had them built yet because I am still undecided on best shaft, but I will. I hit a demo Baby Blade and it was awesome. I didn't even lose any distance and the sound is addictive.

I worried I would have a hard time centering these clubs, but it was just the opposite. I hit them in the middle again and again in the same spot. May or may not need mine one degree upright, but won't worry about that until I play them because I may adjust as they are. Solid impact with these clubs is joyous.
Current lineup:

TM M1 440 Tour Issue, 10-degree, Diamana B Series X,

Baby blades FTW!!!

They are the easiest and best feeling irons that I have ever played.  I also have a set of Miura Retro TBs, and while they are a fine iron, the baby blades are still the better choice in all categories.

Best.  Irons.  Ever.

Once I saw the Baby Blades may be discontinued, I grabbed a set of new heads a few weeks back, satin finish, no paintfill, which looks pretty cool. Haven't had them built yet because I am still undecided on best shaft, but I will. I hit a demo Baby Blade and it was awesome. I didn't even lose any distance and the sound is addictive.

I worried I would have a hard time centering these clubs, but it was just the opposite. I hit them in the middle again and again in the same spot. May or may not need mine one degree upright, but won't worry about that until I play them because I may adjust as they are. Solid impact with these clubs is joyous.
I just did the same thing also. Always wanted a set and when I heard the rumor that they were going out of production I pulled the trigger. Happy I did. Just a gorgeous set of blades.

I will be grabbing another set, because I hate them so much.
So if you see a set going cheap don't buy them they are garbage, but feel free to send me the link! :)

Honestly doesn't matter if I try another iron these just end up back in the bag, just the best irons for me anyway that I have ever hit.

I'm a 19 handicap 69 year old who pulled the string on a set of baby blades. I had a little extra money for clubs and Mr. Miura claimed they could be played by about anyone, I took him at his word and purchased a set. My rationale was that if I didn't like them I could get a good portion of my money back when I sold them. They are no more difficult to play than any of the other sets of iron I own (Hogan Ft. Worth 15, Wilson FG Tour M3, Mizuno JPX EZ Forged, MacGregor M675 and MacGregor MT Pro C) and good swings turn out better than most. My handicap has come down since I put them in play abd I am making birdies than I have made in my life. Bad swings will produce bad shots just like they do with my driver, fairway woods and hybrids but great and even good shots are a thing of beauty. I can't compare these to any other Miura blades or any other blades for that matter, but I absolutely love my baby blades. Play golf, have fun.

The thing about the small blades is, for whatever reason, my best shots are better than before and more frequent and my worst shots suck like they always did.

I have played a couple of rounds with my new baby blades and so far so good. I am going to give them a good go before doing a proper review. That said the story so far looks very positive!

interesting point.  I guess anyone with a set on eBay qualifies?  That said, I think they are the kind of irons you can't like a little, if you like them, you really like them, and of the people that really like them, a large percentage of us feel like they are the grail found.
