Scottsdale, AZ — After months of anticipation, Miura Golf today announced it was shipping the limited Nicklaus-Miura Commemorative Irons to customers. The historic collaboration from the Japanese manufacturer and the 18-major winner are the first clubs to bear the Nicklaus name in more than a decade. The limited series of forged Miura blades influenced by Jack’s preferred specifications will be shipped to collectors drawn to both beauty and function.
Jack and Miura patriarch Katsuhiro Miura both epitomize timeless class, exacting attention to detail and unrivaled performance.The living legends have produced a modern version of the classic Nicklaus blade that captures the essence of their lifelong commitment to perfection.
This inaugural release from Nicklaus and Miura, two pillars of the 8AM Golf family of brands, is the latest in a string of selective collaborations from the family-operated company. Last year, Miura produced a minimalist, color-coded 4-club set in conjunction with lifestyle brand LinkSoul. They also partnered on a special-edition MacKenzie Original Walker Bag. Purchasers of the Nicklaus-Miura Commemorative Irons have the option to pair their set with a custom embroidered Mackenzie bag featuring the Miura insignia.
The Nicklaus-Miura Commemorative Irons sold out within a week of first being announced during Jack’s Memorial Tournament in July 2020.
“The overwhelming response to the Nicklaus-Miura Commemorative Irons illustrates the demand for selectively incorporating Miura’s legendary standard of excellence into collaborations that produce exquisite results,” Miura Golf CEO Hoyt Mcgarity said. “There is only one way to reintroduce Nicklaus irons to a new generation of golfers, and that’s by pairing the greatest golfer with the greatest forger for an iron that truly is worth the wait. This artisanal adaptation of the Nicklaus blade represents the long-sought revival of the Golden Bear.”
Crafted with input from Jack to match his preferred club design and functionality, the irons were forged in the Himeji, Japan factory to produce the unmistakable Miura feel. Forged from premium S20C soft carbon steel and finished in satin chrome, the most defining characteristics of the Commemorative Irons are its unique look and sole. Through subtle grinding techniques, the center of gravity is closer to the toe, while making certain that the distribution of weight in the head followed the design specifications Nicklaus preferred and used while on Tour.
