Fujimoto Golf Iron Handcrafted Hand Engraved Iura Irons
One of the most respected hand engraver in Japan, also known as the man who engraved the famous Peacemaker.
It all started when…
Katsuya Fujimoto - the second generation and current president, is an artist from the soul. His appreciation for art and craftsmanship does not only stay within golf but expands to western firearm engravings. Meeting Japan’s most appreciated engraver Katsuo Iura’s work was one of his most inspiring moments in his life as a craftsman. He immediately felt a strong connection with him through his work. Katsuya Fujimoto explained “I immediately knew when I saw his work that we share the same spirit. I am not equipped with steady hands and patience like him, but I can feel the devotion towards his art work just like how I am to my work.”
Katsuo Iura stepped into the world of engraving in 1962 and worked as the right-hand man of the late Master Shirou Ogawa. The name of Katsuo Iura became popular amongst the gun and rifle world when he was commissioned to engrave John Wayne’s famous Peacemaker. Shortly after, he opened the doors of his own private studio in Tokyo in 1972. Till this day, Katsuo Iura strictly engraves only by hand, ringing a pleasant tapping sound throughout the studio with his chisel and hammer.
