MTG stands for Mayuki Takai Golf.
Takai-san, the president and master craftsman of MTG, comes from a golf-loving family.
As a young boy his grandfather took him to the local golf course where he immediately became hooked on the game.
Until he was 30 Takai-san pursued a career as a professional golfer, but soon decided to focus on golf club production.
After ten years of working and studying at a small golf club manufacturer and more than thirty years in the game, Takaisan decided to open his own workshop in Toyoake (approx. 25 km southeast of Nagoya), in the Aichi-prefecture.
MTG Studio break conventions and make perhaps some of the most uncompromising and honest golf clubs in the world.
The forged blanks of their irons and wedges come from the renowned Kyoei Golf forge (Takumi Japan) and are then personally handcrafted by the master. In a way comparable to nothing else in the golf industry. Ichii-Ittobori is a traditional grinding technique that for ages has been used on swords.
Properly applied, the Ittobori technique removes a great amount of material in a very short time. This reduces heat development during the process, leading to a to a softer feeling moment of impact.
In addition, the technique gives the club heads a unique appearance and improves the club’s turf interaction. This MTG-typical design feature is also used in production of their fine woods and drivers.
Another specialty of MTG is the Ginrei technique, which also comes from traditional sword and knife manufacturing.
The material is cold forged and then compressed again with a forging hammer prior to coating.
The individual personalisation (embossing, welding) and production according to customer requirements in connection with eight different coatings and ferrules allow countless combinations, making each MTG Studio club a true individual piece.
Made to order. Made in Japan. Made for you!
