Miura Golf in Himeji Japan, has released it’s new KM 008 putter, that is bringing a next generation of blade putters on the market.

In 2014 Miura “retired” one of it’s most popular putters the KM 350 small blade putter.

In the last year, master clubmaker Katsuhiro Miura has been designing the newest phase of small blade putters.

Like with all of Miura’s products, there is an improvement to the original design or the new product wouldn’t make it to the production stage.

The newest member of Miura’s line of putters is the KM 008. It has a suggested retail price of $450.00. Like it’s predecessor, the KM 008 is forged from a single billet of carbon steel. The Miura forging process creates the industry’s tightest grain structure, with similarly tight manufacturing tolerances.

“Miura san stands by his statement that the putter has been designed for players who are seeking the very best,” says Bill Holowaty, Miura’s Executive Vice President of Product Strategies. “This toe-weighted beauty confirms that it’s possible to match looks with performance. The milled face is extremely forgiving and produces a  strike that transmits to the feel, distance control and in achieving the truest rolls from reduced skid. We invite you to discover what we deem to be perfection on the green.”

Miura Golf has produced a broad line of irons for all players, including the Tournament Blade and Small Blades (muscleback models), MB001 Blade and Passing Point 9003 and the CB-501 (cavity backs). Forged Wedges include the Wedge Series (in silver nickel chrome and black) and the series 1957 Miura Custom Grind Wedges.

There is also three models of putters, and the SIT-460 driver and fairway woods, plus Miura MG Hybrids.

With Miura, golfers buy more than clubs. All Miura clubs are custom fitted by authorized Miura dealer/fitters with each individual golfer not only getting properly fitted clubs, but a partner in his or her game. Miura golfers don’t just play Miura clubs, they entrust their games to the clubs, and to the company. It’s an honor and obligation Miura never forgets.
