Katsuhiro Miura and His SonsKatsuhiro Miura has two sons, Shinei and Yoshitaka. Growing up, his boys were involved in the day-to-day workings of the Miura factor. Each of the boys went on to become a master craftsman and have a hands-on part in creating each of the irons that Miura has produced through the years.
Learning from perhaps the world's most well-known iron craftsman is undoubtedly a benefit. Getting involved in the family business and learning this craft was a simple decision for the two boys.
Shinei MiuraKatsuhiro Miura considers his golf clubs to have the highest degree of integrity on the market. One of the most interesting things about Katsuhiro is that his interest in craftsmanship goes well beyond the way the club looks and performs, and it touches on how the club feels.
The feeling of the golf club is something that Katsuhiro says he thinks about each time he looks at a new release or concept. Shinei had to learn all of this from his father to be able to work his way up within the family business.
Over time, Shinei realized he was very interested in all the business concepts surrounding Miura. Shinei is the president of Miura Manufacturing and handles much of the business side of things. Of course, when needed, he can head down to the forging chair and put out some of the best craftsmanship you have seen.
Yoshitaka MiuraYoshitaka is more involved with club-making. Similar to his father, he likes being involved in the action and seeing the products move from start to finish. Yoshitaka takes trips with his father to learn from great players, develop new concepts and see the best direction for the Miura brand.
One of the more interesting things about the Miura family business is that they are not attempting to compete with other companies. In fact, they have no interest in that. The goal has always been to create the best set of irons in the golf world, regardless of competition.
