Fashion, design and trends go round like a ferris wheel. What was then is most likely on the way back. Particularly with brands that place an emphasis on quality because after all — perfection is forever. We make no secret about it here at World’s Best Golf Destinations — we’re fond of Miura and their commitment to craftsmanship. We like brands with a story and Miura’s connection to ancient Japanese samurai sword-makers is compelling.
The circle of life in affect, Miura Golf today introduced the latest addition to its growing product line by giving one of its most iconic clubs a modern upgrade. In honor of the original 1957 K-Grind wedge, the new K-Grind 2.0 features the signature knuckled sole of the 1957 model, but adds cutting-edge milling techniques for an unrivaled combination of functionality and feel.
Given the proven staying-power of the K-Grind, the Miura family craftsmen sought to maintain the integrity of the original design by preserving the fluted sole that enables the clubface to remain square at impact. The three knuckles deliver increased playability through every type of turf. The K-Grind 2.0 sole grind features increased bounce and roll along with heel and toe relief designed to stabilize golfers’ swings of all skill levels.
The other significant evolution of the line is evident on the clubface of the wedge. To keep in line with the modern style of play, the face and grooves of the K-Grind 2.0 have been fully milled to provide increased spin on intermediate and full shots.
The K-Grind 2.0 is hand-forged in Himeji, Japan, using Miura’s time-honored 14-step manufacturing process. It is offered in five lofts, from 52° to 60°.
“The K-Grind 2.0 is the next generation of the trusted and distinctive product line that performs dependably through every turf,” Hoyt McGarity, President of Miura Golf tells World’s Best Golf Destinations. “With this club, we have produced a superior wedge that is just as versatile as it is visually striking.”
The K-Grind 2.0 is available at Miura Golf authorized dealers around the globe or online. Customers can also design a custom K-Grind 2.0 with a choice of 19 branded shaft options and 14 diverse grips.
