Posted 09 April 2012 - 09:11 PM

Well I did it. After years of reading how soft these irons are and only hitting them a few times I finally made the plunge. I ordered a set of Miura irons and wedges. If some of you don't know me... I love irons. I am a iron collector and it is my passion.

In an effort to make these the perfect set of irons for an obsessed iron aficionado I went to no limits. I asked Miura to add a sole grind for the wet and soft conditions we see in Michigan. I also asked if they could do an all white paint fill. Lastly I asked if they could stamp the irons with my initials (in this case Y3 for the three y's in easyyy). They said of course. At that point I rolled my eyes and shook my head a little. Then a grin slowly showed up on my face and off the races we went.

For years Miura has forged heads for TaylorMade and other OEM's. For tour staff pros and retail. I always knew when the top brass for the best equipment companies want to trust a forging house to make the heads for the best players int he world it went to Miura. That made me want them even more. I used to lurk on E-Bay for that special set of "Tour Issued" TMag 300 forged "Lehman grind" irons that I knew Miura made for the Tour guys. They were made in satin or chrome and had different grinds and offsets for the players.

The Father Katsuhiro and his two sons Yoshitaka and Shinei still run the company in Himeji Japan. The passion for excellence is tradition and well documented.

I will be documenting the process the best I can. I ordered the set last month and today I received some pics of the early grinding. I asked them if they would be so kind to take Pics of the process to document this. They said yeas and also asked if video could be used. I said of course!!!

I will add pics every time I get new ones for the next weeks during the build. Here are some of the specs...
  • 3-pw 501cb (w/ leading edge sole grinds)
  • "Y" Grind 53* wedge
  • "K" Grind 56* wedge
  • I might also add the 7-pw in a blade
  • Asked for all white paint fill
  • Satin finish
  • y3 stamped on them (3 is cubed for the three y's in easyyy)
They are being made now in Japan. Here are the first pics form today. I am trying to find out who that is that is grinding them.

Phase 2- Stamping- Added 4-10-2012


Ok here is the stamping pics. I asked for a different stamping than my initials. I asked for "Y3" to look like the 3 is "cubed" so it is smaller to represent the 3 y's in easyyy. So I expected them to stamp the Y and than with another stamp the 3. But it looks like they made a custom stamp. Knowing Miura they did this for a few reasons. Only a guess...
  • One they didn't have a small enough 3
  • the font needed to match the font on the cavity
  • they wanted the spacing to be exact
I just love this stuff...

Here are some pics. They said the heads are being plated right now and should be back in a few days to a week.

Phase 3- Satin finish is complete and All White Paint fill added- Added 4-17-2012


OMG. Well I asked for an all white paint-fill and look at how good it looks. Here are some pics of the satin finish and the white paint fill application and finished product. Yum. Haven't had word of when they might get in the states.

Phase 4 Assembly in North America- 5/8/2012


Well the heads arrived and are being assembled by a club maker that Bill  is close to named Robert Munro from RM Golf for Miura Golf. Thanks  Robert! I never talked to Robert till yesterday but I trust if he is  good by Miura he is good by me.

Here are some pics that RM sent me today. Assembled today and finished of tomorrow. Then shipped to me hopefully by week end.

Lay out heads and confirm correct set make up. Confirm all heads weights  are within tolerance compared to OEM spec. All heads are within 0.4  grams compared to spec.

Well I think they are now being shipped!

Here are some last assembly pics before he shipped them out...

  • Turn and polish all ferrules and then double polish
  • Cut Shafts to finished length 37.75" for 5 iron
  • Grip sorting for weights
  • Set swingweights to specs (raw-raw w/ grip-adjusted & finished
  • Instal grips- Pure black mounted "logo down"
  • Finished and ready for shipment. Notice the autographed hat by Katsuhiro Miura?

Phase 5- In the house and in the bag!


Well here they are. Arrived today and look like rock stars. Unbelievable satin finish. Take a look at the pics. Something about the satin finish make them stand apart from other satins. Hard to describe in words. The matte seems exaggerated comparing to other satins.

Some quick observations- The offset is very minimal. Hard to find any at all. The toe shape is round vs square. The leading edge grinds are very pronounced and the perfect amount for soft conditions.

Here are some pics of the finished irons...

Me either. I think the scotch tape satin finish is second to none. I have never seen a better satin.

I think Miura will do anything you ask. They didn't push back at all when I asked. I love the 5 iron before and after pics. The leading edge grinds...

It almost looks like it could be Miura-San himself. You'll know for sure once you see the stamps. If there is a Circle-K along w/the reverse-Circle-K it's...  :partytime2:

Congrats on the new irons. Miura's are a real thing of beauty. Although... I would have gone w/the 1957's.  :beach:

Well, I am looking for a new set of blades.  ;)

Pretty sweet project regardless of them being blades or not.  I really want to see how the grinds look one the finish is applied, especially since you're going the satin route.

I think that's Katsuhiro.

Awesome stuff Easyyy. A friend of mine did the same thing--custom ordered 501 CBs. He went direct through Adam who he said is super nice and helpful. His were definitely ground by Katsuhiro.

This may be taboo to ask, but I'm very curious. What are we talking price-wise for a set of custom Miura's? I have a set of Taylor Made RAC TP's off the Champions Tour that were supposedly Miura forged, although they don't have swirls on the faces. They are buttery soft. I believe they are 2005's. I have played Mizuno's forever and love the TM's. Congratulations on a beautiful set of irons. I think you definitely should get the blade scoring irons. At this point money concerns are obviously out the window. Go for it! Can't wait for more pics to come!

Awesome!  I love the look of those 501's - I'd say I want them but I've never even seen them in person or hit them.... ok I still want them.

NIce way to document the experience! I have a Miura 350 putter and it's as good as it gets. Also own mainly Epon gear...once you go Japanese, it's hard to go back to US made...sadly. My bag is now 100% Japanese.

That leading edge grind is going to be great! The only fault with the regular Miura grind is that it digs a little in wet conditions.
