The owner is in the golf club I play in. Haven't met him actually so far. But I know a few guys that purchased from him. Mainly Itobori customized blades. He is on instagram as well if you want to reach out to him.

I have a set of these heads.  Couldn't resist when I saw them, ordered direct from Makino.  Makino seems to be a revival of an old brand similar to Fujimoto.  Both are being brought to life by a marketing company (I went deep on google to find this info). They're putting out nice product.  I'm not sure who exactly does their forging and grinding, but perhaps Oichi forging and Fuji grind? 

I've owned Fujimoto and Makino, and the Makino has a better head shape to me in the short irons where I felt Fuji lacked.  If ordering direct you can customize things like toe shape, head weight, sole grind, offset, etc.  Similar to Miura Custom World. 

They are certainly small, but I believe have a progressive CG and certainly a unique look.  They play like a blade.  I am liking them so far, shafted with Oban CT-115, although certainly not my favorite in my collection.  Let me know if you have any questions, happy to answer what I can.

Iíll get around to it, like many here witb is a fluid concept.  Right now I have the Makino, Kyoei Prototype chrome blades, Miura Custom World TC 101 TBZero combo, Cleveland 588 MB (I believe these are endo forged), Titliest T100, Miura CB-1007, Cleveland Byron Nelson (1-pw, kyoei forged), mizuno MP-14 also 1-pw...first time typing these out, makes me realize itís too many.  I am in the process of graphite shaft experimentation so some of these will go once Iíve inevitably made my way back to Oban CT 115.
