A group of Meisters(master craftsmen)

Kyoei Golf is not looking to become a great master craftsmen group who makes one and only product. A group of master craftsmen (meisters) makes all-out efforts in creating products every day. We have a mass production system where the master craftsmen (meisters) are engaged in every process.

 

Introduction to our meisters

We don't have great and famous craftsmen, but we have many highly skilled craftsmen with decades of experience. Therefore; we make very high-quality products with precision unmatched by other manufacturers.

A grinding Meister Isao Okamura is a factory manager.

He is a director of our factory as well as a skilled polishing craftsman who can bring precision
forging to life. He has been doing this job for 35 years since he was 20 years old. The strong points of our products are the excellent high-performance specification and the beauty of
form. I will keep doing training in order to meet our customers’ needs and satisfaction as much as possible.

A forging Meister Yasuyuki Oyama is the forging chief,

I'm engaged in all forging processes from mold polishing to temperature control.
When you forge, you need to have an image of the result using only from the weight and the shape
of the mold by touching it.  At the stage of rough blocking impression and finishing impression, whether you can finish in the desired shape is crucial for forging.  You must not make a mistake when you shave and scrape the forging dies.

Kyoei Golf’s iron is an integral type soft forged iron with the face and hosel generated from a
single metal bar.  The reason is that we can improve the hitting feel and successfully eliminate the quality variations by this integral type forging.  We have been committed to the integral type soft iron forging method which has almost disappeared in Japan and have produced products for more than half a century.  I think that there are still a lot of things that I should learn.  One of the perks of doing this job is to get feedback directly from our customers saying they are very
satisfied with our beautiful golf club head.

A plating Meister  Norikazu Yamashita is the chief in the plating department

I adjust freely the plate, since the adhesive degree of which could change due to temperature,
humidity, and the weather. The plate is like a live creature. Every single day, the more effort we put into our products, the more beautiful they become.  You can't produce the exact same thing as before no matter how hard you try to recreate it due to subtle changes in temperature of the day of manufacture.  It feels like as if I interacted with live creatures, so I am never satisfied with the finished products 100%. I strongly believe that to keep pursuing perfection with all my heart is the best way of generating great products.
