Legendary golfer, Jack Nicklaus, and legendary club-maker Katsuhiro Miura have joined together to construct a beautiful adaptation of the classic Miura Golf blade.
The limited-edition set of hand-forged irons was designed by the influence of Jack Nicklaus, the 18-time major champion’s preferred specifications.
The idea was simple: unite two legends, Jack Nicklaus, the celebrated golfer, with Katsuhiro Miura, the renowned club-maker. The result? A limited series of iron sets for serious collectors drawn to both beauty and function.
Both Nicklaus and Miura-san stand for the same things: timelessness, class, artisan craftsmanship – and the lasting legacy of family. Their coming together was meant to be. The limited-issue irons combine Nicklaus’s club-design ideas – developed over 60 years – with Miura-san’s 60-year obsession with club-making perfection.
Nicklaus has an abiding respect for the Miura family that goes back decades. In 2014, he visited the Miura forging house in Himeji, Japan, to meet Miura-san. Two patriarchs, living legends of the game, speaking the same language: golf. On that day, Nicklaus became the second person, only after Miura-san, to sit in the grinding line’s first chair.
“The day Jack visited the factory was the best day of my life,” Miura-san said. “My family is honored to produce this set of irons for golf’s greatest champion and see our family’s crest share a clubhead with his seal of approval.”
Following the visit, Nicklaus was inspired to integrate his timeless insights with Miura’s six decades of craftsmanship.
“I’ve spent decades designing golf equipment, and I cherish the painstaking craftsmanship that goes into enhancing the tools of my trade,” Nicklaus said. “The Miura family and I share this passion for doing everything the right way and leaving no detail overlooked. We have worked closely in this collaboration to highlight the superior subtleties of Miura forged steel.”
The Nicklaus-Miura Commemorative Irons are the first clubs to bear the Nicklaus name in more than a decade. The sets arrive in the first quarter of 2021 and are available now for preorder at Miura Golf’s website.
