Not sure is it a stupid question, I was thinking using a forged wedge for sand bunker shot is just plainly asking for trouble ? due to the softer nature of the iron head itself ?

Buy a wedge just use .... If you scare to use then don't buy. Dent already change. Anyway in no less than 1 year , you will change the wedge. Anyway is Max 5 times a round ? but back to qns IMHO I think using a forged wedge will definitely scartch the club. In Most courses , is not just fine sand in the bunker , you have rocks , pebbles. Especially in courses in Malaysia.

Frankly speaking, all forged will get scratch easily.
also all forged material are the same. wheather is American, china or japan.
is the way they forged it by how many stepping, how much carbon was taking out so that there is more soft steel. some also use milled material for wegdes like Vokey.
They way Japan style of grinding is just smoother.
Get the right degrees u want and get ur right boconce.
Use the right shaft that u feel is great on impact and use the right grip for ur hands feel.
ohhh dont forget get the right length.
Cheers mate

both are made by Kyoei which is in north Himeji.....its an open model (so anyone can use it) and the same was made for JL sometime back.

most people think that if a piece of irons goes through more furnace time, it will get softer. but thats really the opposite.

Forging is best describe as shaping of metal using compressive forces. According to the temperature at which it is performed: its termed as "cold", "warm", or "hot" forging.

It is also scientifically proven that once a piece of carbon steel goes through more than 1200 degree heat, it will harden not soften.

the acid test is when we bend the irons. we know how soft or hard it really is.

hope it helps.......DGman
