OUR STORY, OUR PEOPLE
grindworks is a Japanese golf brand with a focus on unqiue design, materials and manufacturing and performance, with an emphasis on feel and quality. grindworks was created as a premium brand to rival some of Japan’s (and the world’s) top established component brands.
Beginning from simple round table discussions over 16 months ago, to hand drawn designs matched with extensively researched and thought out technical aspects, to 3D CAD drawings and resin samples to multiple revisions and hundreds of hours of meetings, we worked on developing various models which would provide the best in feel and performance for a broad spectrum of golfers. Tooling samples were made and tested and revised and tested and revised until final original molds were created for the finished products.
Special care has been taken into materials and manufacturing as these two aspects play a huge role in how a golf club design will feel, look and ultimately perform. We are proud of our first release of FORGED irons and Variant ONE woods which complement our popular and unique 218ALLOY wedges and look forward to making more great designs in coming years.
Feel the power, experience the performance, grindworks premium Japanese golf clubs.
grindworks is created upon a foundation of creative people, quality materials and top notch manufacturing.
MEET THE GRINDWORKS TEAM
THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE BRAND
HEAD OF PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT & GLOBAL SALES
LEAD TECHNICAL ADVISOR
While its more common in Japan for a brand to operate and market itself as a collective, we wanted to get more personal about our team as we fully believe that a brand is all about the people behind it.
The grindworks team was put together meshing unparalleled experience in the Japanese and Global golf industry, including, design, manufacturing, sales and marketing.
brings over 40 years of golf industry experience to the table. In 2014 he was admitted to the International Clubmakers Guild (IGC) Hall of Fame. He has advised many Japanese brands over the years on club design and overseas sales strategies and even developed and produced several of his own original brands. As Head of Product Development and Global Sales, Mr. Niimi oversees product development for grindworks and is in charge of its global sales strategy and is the driving force behind the growth and brand strategy moving forward.
is known to many in Japan’s golf industry as the “father of FORGED Titanium drivers”. Mr. Kobayashi has spent over 40 years designing and manufacturing premium forged golf clubs. He spent over 30 years working at the world’s largest and most premium forging house in Niigata, Japan, and was the President there for over 10 years, while also heading up their private premium forged components brand. He has worked with every major American and Japanese golf brand who has produced forged golf clubs, many of which he played a part in designing. Mr. Kobayashi brings all this experience to grindworks as their Lead Technical Advisor where he oversees technical specs of all golf clubs.

While in a key role at a prominent online retailer of Japanese golf equipment, he was able to connect and work with many top Japanese golf brands and industry experts.
