Himeji, Japan — Miura Golf has debuted the KM 008 putter that signifies a new chapter for the next generation of “the very best blade putter” made of a forged, milled mild steel.
In 2014, Miura retired one of its most popular putters ever, the KM 350 (Small Blade Putter). Since that time, master clubmaker Katsuhiro Miura has been busy designing the next generation of this classic. Like all Miura products, there had to be an improvement on the original design or it wouldn’t make it to the production stage.
Enter the KM 008, which has a suggested retail price of $450. Like its predecessor, the KM 008 is forged from a single billet of soft 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 of rolls from reduced skid. We invite you to discover what we deem to be perfection on the green.”
