The brand SEVEN has been around for less than a year although the Kyuzo.01 putter was started years prior with a small batch of 10pcs done with the help of Golds Factory in modifying the blank SEVEN heads, they were beautiful yet very expensive so we decided the new goal would be to make something that had the quality and performed and felt as close to the original and rare 10pcs as possible. The requirements were simple, it had to be made in Japan by the best people using the best designs and materials as well as provide a wide array of custom options prior to release earlier this year we were informed very few putters could be allocated to us by our factory, doing our best we produced that amount and nearly all sold out in the first month pre booked to customers and shops all over the world and that is why some may have seen them in Thailand or Korea already prior to official launch. At the time of this post there are less than 20 putter heads available to offer.
It has an incredible fit and finish, it rolls end over end with minimized skipping, and feel oh boy yes not to soft and not so firm just right we sourced metal materials from the best supplier we could find in Kyoto Japan testing SUS303, 304, SM490A, Fe Carbon, etc.. In the end we decided on something firmer than carbon but softer than stainless so we selected SM490 giving a dense and buttery vibration going from the head, through the shaft, and up to the hands. Every putter can be modified we bring in the raw heads in and can bend and finish, assemble, and paint fill per order above you see NiCr Satin with translucent red paint fill, Follow the Jump to read and read about and see more putters…
At address it’s all business, the shape is made by CNC then polished by hand to smooth out the edges, in the Kyuzo model as seen here it’s 350g where as our prototypes were 370g yet also had a thicker top line, some customers have ordered the word SEVEN paint fill free while others color it up but everyone agrees it also works as alignment and is a simple and elegant placement location for the logo and finally for those who are minimalists we do have a few blank sole heads in stock as well reserved for Gold’s Factory modifications.
Our Deep mill marks dampen harsh vibrations while amplifying softer ones, at impact the ball is still rolling end over end even with a wet putter face, we tested four new milling designs then made several rounds of adjustments to each and found this to be the best of both worlds in pure soft feel and roll. While looking dead on at this face face of this putter has a nice even design with no awkward angles or shapes and the edges are hand polished meticulously.
Below the sole and while quite busy makes a statement ( we have special blank themes reserved ) in the photo below you can see the original Kyuzo.01 has a large beautiful reverse engraved Kanji, it says SM490A + Machined in Japan boasting where the putter is made and of what material. You want a putter made in Japan there is no place better it can come from, and finally some customers are going with no paint fill in the Kanji and that looks great in my opinion.
We have many finishes, shafts, grips to choose from and over the next couple of weeks we will highlight some of the custom putters our members and clients have been making. Smoked Copper just like the Cold Forged wedges has been most popular, as well as our new polished soft black, I’m a big fan of NiCr Satin with a polished sole, optional your choice of particular areas that can be hand polished or not so you can opt out for a no glare flat anti sun look or request custom hand polish for a more mirror like finish on the sole or even everywhere as the putter on the image below is soft black polished completely, which is gorgeous and feels even softer.
Putter below are the limited heads we reserve for golds factory modifications, these have minimal stamping anywhere and can be custom themed by Master Sasaya. the head weights are already 350 & 370g allowing you plenty to work with, without the need for weights.
