While I’ve never have the pleasure of playing Miura’s 007 (sure that one's a mallet but why quibble), in Bond lore 008 is the agent known for being a more cooperative agent, adept at following M’s orders to the tee. Obedience to the boss’ whims is a trait all golfers crave in a flatstick so lets take a closer look at KM-008--the followup to the KM 350 small blade putter.
Tradition, tradition! Tradition! Sing it Fiddler on the Roof loud cause this heel shafted toe-weighted masterpiece may sport a tried and true architecture but exquisite craftsmanship and attention to the minutest details means there’s absolutely nothing run of the mill about this beguiling offset blade.
Tantamount to Miura’s maniacal pursuit of balance, weight distribution and truer strike purity is their forging process where each putter begins life as a single billet of soft carbon steel then endures a rigorous process to fashion it into a truly beautiful instrument
IMPECCABLE PINSIDE MANNER
The KM-008 inspires confidence on the greens. No putter can make three footers feel like tap-ins but the best ones can drastically increase your stroke surety and the 008 edge extends to twenty foot putt prayers. While you might not sink any more of the latter—this is a piece of steel, not a magic staff—thanks to the brilliant weighting and balance you never feel like you have pound it to knock it really close. We'll have our video test up in a couple weeks so stay tuned for more 008.
