I didn't think it was possible for another iron to put mine to shame. I have the 57 Miura blades... and they've just been outdone. :russian_roulette:

Why his irons have two small Ks rather than one? I know that K indicates conformed groove, two Ks, hmmmm....
The second K means that it was custom made by Mr. Miura himself.

You beat me to the punch. I sent an email to Bill to find out and he said the same about the "K" and also the "SL"...

One  is a “K” with a circle around it (indicative of a custom made set by Mr  Miura) and the other mark is a “SL” (for Scoring Lines) which is our  mark for 2010 Conforming Grooves.

Here's a few shots of Nick's irons & his bag

Looks like Nick got some new irons recently.  The attached were taken in Grand Cayman a few months ago.  Not really a surprise I guess.  Guess the new ones worked since he had a hole in one on Friday.

the second stamp is a SL and not a reverse K? that is news to me.  I just figured the first K was for trademark purposes and I had no idea what to think when I seen the second stamp.  good info as always here, thanks

I have seen a set of these in person and they are 100% custom and unlike any of Muira's current irons. I believe there was 4 sets of these irons made and they are very very nice but also very small. Not as small as the Tournament Blades but close. Definitely a work of art.

Here is a pic I snapped with my phone.

It's been said that very few people can actually hit these irons... there were a number of times this past summer where it looked like Nick couldn't hit them either.

He's always had a reputation as one of the best ballstrikers in the world, but he hit a number of really fat shots on TV earlier this year.
You can put the most forgiving, large-headed, cavity backed, multi-material, high tech wonder irons you can find in the bag, but if you're hitting the ball heavy it'll make as much difference to improving the fall of your shots as painting your arse yellow.

Thinking back on some of my bad shots, technology wouldn't have saved me one bit.

As for these fabulous clubs no-ones mentioned one of the most significant things about them: the 1957. Probably the best year in history to be born and take up golf. I can't think of many other years that have produced so many regular and major championship winners.

They are a 1957 series blade, but not babies. If these were babies someone has shrunk those 588s.

Just what I thought when I just saw the initial pics.. "Y" and "K".....Katsuhiro Miura and son Yoshitaka had their hands in these heads. WOW!

Miura does not have "Y" stampings.  Circle SL and Circle K.  SL = Score Line (Conforming grooves); K = Ground by Mr. Miura himself.  Anyone ever seen a Circle K set for sale here?

If you live anywhere near an officia lMiura dealer/fitter, you owe it to yourself to hit the baby blades. I would liken hitting them flush comparable to plunging a samurai blade into a grizzly bear: you're shocked that it went through so fast and comes out just as fast. The golf ball takes off so fast, piercing trajectory and then lands softly. I love playing blades (Mizuno mp 69's and Titleist 12"s) these are even more wonderful and feels so good. It's a spiritual experience!

The muscle back looks exactly like my Miura MB-5003 irons, which were released in Japan about 4-5 years ago.  The more I look at the above pictures, more I'm certain they are almost identical to MB-5003.  MB-5003's also have quite large head sizes.  I would assume that Miura is finally bring these wonderful clubs to U.S. market.  Current 1957 blades offered in U.S. are outdated by at least two cycles.  

By the way, I have long searched for a great set of blades, which lead me to directly import MB-5003 from Japan.  Such wonderful clubs!  The feel, consistency, and above all - forgiveness.  My MB-5003s have the forgiveness of cavity irons.  Heck, since they are so well portioned, I even find them easier to swing than hybrid irons such as Cleveland HB3.  Crossing my fingers in eager wait that above irons will be offered to general public in U.S.  The graphic looks better/classy than my MB-5003.  

Mr. Miura, please bring them to U.S.  I bag!

Does anyone remember the blades he played 10-15 years ago that had completely blank backs (no company names/logos)?

I believe Tom Sites made those for him right before he started working for Nike. They looked so sweet and (IMO) so cool because of the lack of markings.

Those look pretty sweet too though!

The blades you referenced were indeed a Stites design, created when he was with Impact Golf Technologies and similar to the Chipshot golf irons.

Miura irons typically come with two head weights.  The regular is slightly heavier than average heads.  The heavier is usually 7g heavier than the regular.  Given the fact that Nick used to lead type all over his old irons, I'm inclined to think that he uses the heavier (or even customized heavier) head.  Which should increase the swing weight by 1 or 2 depending the choice of the shaft.
