The shaft combines the best qualities of steel and graphite and has become increasingly popular both on professional tours and with everyday golfers.”

Miura Golf Introduces New Putter Line

SCOTTSDALE, AZ  – Miura Golf today introduced the KM1 and KM2, the first putters released by the esteemed Japanese clubmaker in four years.

The KM1 and KM2 blade style putters are Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milled from the same source as the Japanese stainless-steel billets used exclusively by the Miura family for their legendary forged irons. The result is an unparalleled combination of custom craftsmanship and modern innovation that provides the ultimate in precision, feel and performance.

The KM1 has softer, more rounded lines with a slightly rolled top-line, while the KM2 is designed with sharper lines and a slightly longer blade length and tri-sole. Both new offerings share the same Miura DNA, with a deep milled face with a satin finish, a head weight of 360 grams and a chrome stepless steel shaft with premium leather grips.

“Whenever we decide to issue a new product, the most important consideration is that it meets the strict quality standards that we have already established,” said Kevin O’Connell, VP of Sales for Miura Golf. “So, if we’re bringing a new putter line to market, with our world-renowned Japanese steel and the highest standards in the industry, our customers know it will be in a class by itself.”

The Miura family oversaw the entire process of creating the new putter line, including research and development, identifying the best milling house and, most importantly, sourcing the best raw Japanese stainless steel.

Both the KM1 and KM2 are available with either standard or midsize grips and retail for $999 each. Golfers can purchase the KM1 and KM2 and all other Miura products fully assembled at
