Kamui Works is a very prestigious hand made golf club maker in Toyama City. Kamui Works has been making premium drivers for over a decade and is a favorite among low handicap players and those wanting a premium custom made driver with a focus on feel and distance. The big draw for many golfers is that Kamui will make their drivers to any spec including conforming or non-conforming.
Kamui introduces their all new 2010 Silver 420 Driver!. The Silver 420 features a more compact head with a very traditional pear shape which retains a similar face height to the 456. The head does feature a shallower and higher center of gravity resulting in a more penetrating mid trajectory shot unlike the 456 which is more of a high launch.
Kamui drivers are made using cold forged as roll titan faces utilizing DAT56, a next generation titanium steel from Daido Industries. The titanium is cold forged using pressure moulding with 400 tons of pressure. The Silver 420 also features a dimpled back face which creates variable thickness all across the face for feel and added ball speeds.
Premium club maker Kamui Works then uses TIG Welding (by hand) to attach the face to the driver body. Because this is all done carefully by the hands of top Kamui Works craftsmen, there is very little margin of error when it comes to loft and face angle. You order 9.3* and that's what you get.
The driver heads spend a lot of time on the grinding belt and are worked thoroughly by hand to ensure uniform thickness all throughout the head. Kamui Works believes this is an important process in creating a maximum performance driver as uneven surface and walls of the driver would not only throw off the overall balance of the head but cause the performance to fall below optimal.
Moving from rougher belts to finer belts with many steps in between, Kamui Works ensures a perfect polish and shine with the final touch being done by hand and cloth buffing. This is pure hand made attention and the ultimate in Japanese hand made driver craftsmanship.
Current options include:
- Conforming or Non-Conforming Head (Conforming head has COR of 0.83 and Non-Conforming is 0.88!!)
- Loft (Exact loft)
- Face Angle
- Lie Angle
- Head Weight
- Custom Head Finish (the Silver 420 currently has a choice of 4 metallic pearl finishes)
All driver heads will take 3 weeks as they are made on customer order. Please note in order to distinguish between conforming and non-conforming models, CONFORMING heads have the marking PROTO on it. NON-CONFORMING heads do NOT have the word PROTO on them.
If you require a specific loft ie 10.5*, please note it in the comments section on checkout. Heads however will only be marked with round numbers ie 9* 10* 11*. ie select 10* in the options but ask for 10.3*, the head will come as 10.3* but be marked 10* on the head.
If you prefer to have your driver shafted with a top end driver shaft. Please see the Custom Built version of the Silver 420 here.
