Introducing the CGS Orion Himeji x Tsubame MB Iron. What makes CGS Orion stand out is that they go above and beyond when it comes to fit and finish. Hand-ground and forged In Ichikawa Himeji, Japan’s epicenter of hand grinding. These heads are sent to the town of Tsubame Sanjo in Niigata Japan, this area is renowned for beautiful hand polishing. This combination of Himeji handcrafting and Tsubame Sanjo’s polishing creates a stunning effect.
Face forward it features a high and sharp toe that extends past the edge of the top groove.
These are forged of soft S20C and combined with the CP Silver (copper underlay nickel-chromium) finish. The feel at impact is amongst the very best in Japan.
This blade maintains the functionality of a conventional muscle-back. It’s also got modern and sharp going for its appearance, the shape and grind are done really well and it has a consistent beautiful neck transition. I will go out on a limb and guess this is an Oichi forging with a Shinagawa grind. Let’s not forget that the back face has a channel milled into it. perfecto! I gotta say I’m extremely impressed with all of CGS Orion’s irons and wedges. The steps they take and more importantly the decisions they make result in a quality offering.
