I think it a more of a choice and commitment to the brand offering based on how much you want to spend and if you are willing to pay for the best. There is a video of the Miura factory and lots of info on the Epon factory both of which are considered to produce the best quality forgings in the world. Most all of the USA brands forgings are from China, I seriuosly doubt if there are any videos or info on the quality of their products. Are they even close to as good as the products from Japan? No they are not but you will pay considerably more.
I base this statement on the fact that I have reshafted many sets of irons and can tell you that I am shocked by the head to head weight variation from some companys, some have tip weights to compensate but some do not which results in a considerably different swingweight, one club might be D2 swingweight while another may be D0 or even C9.

For the more custom/specialized brands: Scratch and Miura.
I think Bridgestone/Tourstage is fantastic, but it doesn't look like they will be releasing a blade this next year.

Blades: Callaway X Prototypes. They just don't get any better than these. Unreal feel, so so soft. Close second are the Scratch SB1's with a grind that fits your swing type. Nirvana. Don't need to look anywhere else.
CB's: for me, the Diablo Forged have been a dream on earth. Sweet soft feeling, FORGIVING, and LONG! For me, they are everything I've ever wanted in an iron. Second place goes to the Mizzy MX 300's and the Bridgestone J38 Dual PC's. So so soft and very forgiving.

Daiwa DG201*, Mizuno MP-14, Mizuno MP-29*, Snake Eyes MB1* (that was forged by Smith & Wesson), Mizuno MP-33, Titleist 690MB*, Titleist 670, Nike Tiger Woods Limited Edition*, Callaway X-forged Proto, Taylormade TP MB, and now Mizuno MP-68*.
(*) = Owned.
Feel & softness: Snake Eyes MB1. I can really feel the ball sticking to the club face, which allows more shot-shaping. Down-side? The heads are so small that just aren't forgiving at all.
Trajectory: I prefer MP-29 and MP-68. The lofts are 2-degree stronger which helped me lowered my trajectory, and added more distance. (Rifle 6.5 for the MP-29, and Project X 6.0 for the MP-68)
My current favorite set is the MP-68. Switched to it from Callaway X-Forged (CB), thought I would have trouble switching because I wasn't golfing all that much back then, then I realized the transition was easier than I expected as my first round (without hitting the driving range first)'s iron shots were all on target and with shot-shaping abilities (draw/fade).
I have never tried blades that was branded from Miura/Endo before though.

If money is no object, well, as Jason noted, you have a great selection above, though as he also pointed out, it's an indivudual thing more than a beauty contest if you're a Player. I had a set of Miura 54's and a set of Fourteen Endos, and while both are obviously amongst the "best," I stayed with my Mizzys cuz that's what I was used to, that's what fit my game, and that's what I had the utmost confidence in.
I equate Mizzy to a Benz, with the others mentioned being Rolls-
A Benz is goid enough for me and does what I need a vehicle to do-
So does Mizzy
Just keep an open mind and pick the club for YOU and YOUR game
The Very Best in your search
Stay well My Friend

- Miuraism SB01
- Epon AF Tour
- Epon Personals 1
- Epon Personals 2
- Crazy MB limited edition
- Tourstage MR23 MB
- Yamaha 2012 Tour
Good luck finding your "perfect" forged blade!
