As I had originally posted back almost a year ago when the first M.A.C. was created, Master Sasaya of Gold’s Factory is a man who appreciates the fine details in premium workmanship. In late 2012 we were casually chatting over some ramen noodles in Itabashi about how some high end cars have a single “Meister” defined as “a person expert in or renowned for a specific skill” who builds the engines in their high end models from start to finish. We all know that nobody can tweak or modify a putter like Master Sasaya does and he is very much in his own way a Meister. Using the word Meister he created his new line of one off, one of a kind putters under the banner Meister Absolute Crafting.
These new M.A.C. putters would use all of Gold’s Factory’s best design ideas, each be unique in its own way and have only one ever made. Master Sasaya takes each head, machined from JIS SUS303 and through hand machining, grinding, polishing, modifying and finishing create his usual beauty. He asked me what I thought about names for each putter as he wanted to give each unique putter a name, and I suggested why not pay homage to the Greek Gods? Their names as putters would sound very cool. Master Sasaya agreed since then we have had steady line of M.A.C. releases including Artemis, Prometheus, Apollo, Zeus, Chronos and Hades. Only one of each will ever be made so owning one will mean owning a one of a kind M.A.C. model.
The 2 latest M.A.C. putters have been created called Erebos and Athene, click on the read more to check them out!
Both putters feature JIS SUS303 bodies with hand machined and cut Damascus steel inserts. Master Sasaya has tried to change the look a bit with these two so pictures say more than I can describe, check them out!
