Miura MC-501 Black Irons
When Shinei Miura was designing the new MC 501, his focus was directed to ball contact and control. The Miura family’s reputation for delivering clubs with maximum playability and renowned feel was also an integral part of the new design. Although a typical Blade model would target a specific skill set, Shinei wanted this model to have appeal beyond the low handicapped player. One first notices that the sole design of the MC 501 is wider than a typical muscle back iron. Combining this with what is the biggest (longest from heel to toe) of any blade model ever produced by Miura will appeal to both Blade and Cavity Back players alike.

Miura Forging Process
Miura's forging techniques rearrange the molecular structure of the mild steel in a pattern that is uniform throughout the club head. This eliminates void spots in the club face. This process assures that every Miura club in your bag has the distance control, ball flight, spin, and feel that any golfer should demand. This tightness in the grain structure of the metal is what gives Miura made clubs the controlled, soft feel that other manufacturers cannot achieve. Miura also uses a proprietary "spin welding" process to produce the industries' most consistent hosel. This unique procedure ensures that the bore depths and hosel heights are identical on every Miura made head and the shaft of every club will be perfectly centered.
Where does the famous "Miura feel" come from?
Since Katsuhiro Miura began making golf clubs in 1957, Miura clubs are made one by one, using many handcrafting processes, and will never be mass produced. Special forging techniques assure that the grain of the steel in each club will be fine and uniform, with no voids or tiny bubbles that could interfere with the famous Miura purity of the strike. This grain, more comparable to a jar of sand than a jar of marbles, is the result of careful and patient forging and finishing, and it is this that sets Miura apart from other clubs.
Why choose Miura Golf Irons?
Miura Golf of Japan makes the world's finest forged golf clubs. They are designed and manufactured by patriarch and club expert Katsuhiro Miura with the help of his sons Yoshitaka and Shinei, both of whom he trained. People are amazed that master craftsman Katsuhiro Miura, who is often referred to in the Japanese media as having the Hands of God, actually works hands-on in his factory every day. He passes down his knowledge and skills to his two sons, and even grinds the club heads himself as well.
His endless quest for the perfect club has brought to the world over 10 series of Miura clubs, a number that continually grows as he continues his meticulous refinement.
When golfers see a Miura club for the first time, and actually hold it in their hands, there is a common shared experience - love at first sight. We aren't even joking. We have seen the effect in our Manchester fitting facility so many times.
Miura makes its forged clubs -- irons, wedges and putters -- in the company's one factory and one forge, both in the city of Himeji, which was for centuries the seat of the ancient Japanese art of samurai sword making. While demand for those weapons has diminished, the generations of steelmaking skill and passion have not - and these are the attributes that the Miura family brings to the creation of the world's best golf clubs.
Major Championship wins
Among professional golfers, the Miura name is well-known. Indeed, before he made clubs under his own name, Katsuhiro Miura supplied many top Touring Professionals with the clubs they used to win Major Championships. Out of deference to those players and their current endorsement relationships, Katsuhiro Miura does not discuss them specifically. Instead, he focuses on the design and manufacture of his current clubs, which are to him the highest expression of his decades-long quest for golf club perfection.
