Frequently Asked Questions

You ask, we answer

Where does the name Tatara come from?

Tatara is a term that refers to a traditional method of Japanese sword-making. In this process, a Tatara furnace is used to heat and forge the steel for the Katana blade, which is then cooled and tempered to create a strong and sharp blade.

The name “Tatara” evokes our goals of precision, strength, and craftsmanship, as these are all qualities associated with traditional Japanese sword-making.

Like the Japanese katanas, our products are made with extreme dedication and attention to detail. Combining this with the obsessive precision of modern engineering, TATARA Razors is proudly creating safety razors of rare sensitivity and strength.

Who are the founders of Tatara?

Tatara was founded by 3 friends and mechanical engineers passionate about product development. They came together in September 2016 to dream, design, and develop TATARA’s shaving products. You can find more in the section “about us“.
