Discover the feel and control of a forged, milled, mild steel blade.
As with his forged iron heads, the MIURA forging process creates an ultra smooth surface with very tight dimensional tolerances. The result is a blade with unmatched feel and precision.

“Designed for players seeking the very best from a classic design” says Katsuhiro Miura.
This MIURA “Series 1957” Classic design blade goes through the same forging process which makes the Miura Irons so successful in the consistency of the strike of the ball and in terms of feel.
“I have a special pride in this club,” Mr. Miura says. “That’s because it’s so easy to hit.”
A small blade? Easy to hit? In Mr. Miura’s innovative mind, it makes sense. He doesn’t buy in to the myth that small, blade-like heads have to be hard to hit. Instead, he encourages recreational golfers to try this pleasing design. The smaller size — 15 percent smaller overall — makes the clubhead easier to square up at impact. But Mr. Miura was careful to make the face dense and substantial, to deliver a robust impact and an aggressive ball flight.
The smaller head also glides through the turf easily — and Mr. Miura added key touches in the design to enhance this advantage. For instance, examine the heel and the toe. The corners are ground upward ever so slightly. It’s barely enough to notice, but it’s enough “relief” to ensure the best path for the club through the turf.
“I’m always looking for new ways to help the recreational player hit the ball more easily,” Mr. Miura says. “With this design, you really just have to put your swing on it” — and here he smiles — “In a way, we’ve done the thinking for you, so you can just play and enjoy.”
