The Miura story is a tale as unique as the reverd clubs we create.  Present through our processes and rich history, the Miura story is one of incredible passion, precise craftsmanship, and the lasting legacy of family.  This 10-minute short documentary unveils the narrative of one of the golf industry's most interesting and mysterious stories.

 

Check out the press release below and watch the film.  Then let us know what you think!

 

Miura Officially Debuts Documentary on March 19th

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA -- The inside story behind one of golf's most iconic and mysterious brands is about to be unveiled with the release of the film documentary, Discovering Perfection: The Miura Story, being digitally distributed on March 19, 2018 at http://miuragolf.com/film/.
 
The short-documentary on the Japanese club manufacturer takes golf fans, documentary buffs and aficionados of Japanese craftsmanship into the world of the Miura family. Billed as the world's finest forged golf clubs, Miura's story began in 1957 when the company's founder, Katsuhiro Miura, began hand-grinding golf clubs. The documentary, set in three chapters, uncovers the history of the brand, explores its building techniques, and discovers the legacy of the most storied and secretive manufacturer in golf history.
 
"Behind the world's finest forged golf clubs is a compelling story," says Howard Milstein, Executive Producer. "Since 1957, the Miura family has been hands-on, designing and constructing premium golf clubs that set the industry standard. There's precision every step of the way and this documentary showcases the tradition and incredible craftsmanship that creates one of the most interesting stories in the golf industry."
 
Chapter 1: The Mystery
Miura's history is deeply rooted in this tradition of excellence, creating a unique ancestry in the manufacturing of steel golf clubs. The story begins in Himeji, Japan, where we uncover the birthplace of the Miura golf club and its founder, "Miura-San", Katsuhiro Miura.
 
Chapter 2: The Laboratory
The story continues as Miura-san goes on to teach his sons, Yoshitaka and Shinei, the fine art of crafting steel golf clubs. The unique design and manufacturing process is revealed, unveiling the iconic Miura way. Discover what truly makes a Miura club stand above the rest, from a golfer and clubfitter's viewpoint.
 
Chapter 3: The Golfer's Sword
Although Miura has made a significant impact on the industry's past and present, the story does not simply end as Miura-san, Yoshitaka, and Shinei reflect on their historic contributions to the golf industry. In this epic conclusion, learn what can be expected from the renowned brand and its impending legacy.

The film, supported by Executive Producer Howard Milstein, was captured throughout 2017 by a Canadian documentary film-team that traveled to Japan and throughout North America in putting together this story. By meeting with Miura family members, the American management group, and advocates of the clubs, the film takes a non-partisan exploration route to discovering what goes into these clubs being considered the finest in the world.
 
About Miura Golf
 
Miura Golf makes the world's finest forged golf clubs, which are designed and manufactured by the Miura family in their factory in Himeji, Japan. The entire family works hands-on in the factory and continues to carry on the Miura legacy.
 
World-renowned craftsman Katsuhiro Miura began hand-crafting and grinding irons in 1957, and has created one of the most-respected brands in the golf industry. Miura's endless quest for the perfect club has brought to the world over 10 product series, a number that grows as the next generation of the Miura family - led by sons Shinei and Yoshitaka - continue their meticulous refinement and evolution of product lines.

Don't be put off Miura by this horribly sentimental, patronising video. 

 

Brand development is not what Miura is about, these master craftsmen produce the finest irons possible.  The feel their process create is not the over used 'buttery', but so much more involving than that.  The feel is unique.  Crisp and clean but with a depth that creates an emotional response.

 

Try any Miura iron to sample the feel, then find a model that suits your eye.  Look at the Miura Giken (Japan) products as well as Miura Golf (US), the company's range is far broader than the North American marketeers want you to know.

 

They really aren't expensive, you do get what you pay far which in any language is a good deal
