Let me first say this. I'm not the youngest guy and with a busy job, wife & kids I never have time to leave reviews and also hate to waste time to....yet this experience has forced me to do these guys deserve the press! First, I have been shaving with DE razors for many years. I own several shavers..Merkur , Muhle, Razorock Gamechanger 0.84, 0.68 and BBS , Slim Gillette and so on. Of these the Razorock 0.84 and BBS lead the pack...Yet that was only until my Masamune Nodachi arrived. In a few words the Masamune Nodachi is of a level of quality and performance that is truly unmatched and simply miles ahead of all the others. It gives me a true BBS shave in 2 passes with the Feather or Dorco blades , yes I repeat again 2 passes!!. Even with the worst blades I have which are Ladas it does a BBS in 3 passes!! The razor is truly incredible. It is solid, super high quality , like a piece of art...but best of all it shaves with perfection regardless of any blades is unlike no other razor out there. Simply Perfection is reached each Shave! After this I have realised you really do get what you pay for. This is not cheap but its worth every cent as it is the highest quality and better still its made in Europe by 3 hotshot young Engineers whom take no compromise on quality. It took me a long time to consider if it was worth it put down the amount of coin they asked for this shaver, yet I can say I`m really stoked and glad I did. This is the best purchase I have ever made and its worth more than all the others together If like me you want to just to experience the finest feeling across my face when shaving then the best afterwards with BBS achieved each time, in a short period, then this is the answer BTW-I use Proraso pre shave with either Castle Forbes or Simpsons creams or La Savonniere Du Moulin Shaving Soap or Musgo Real and use Castle Forbes or Musgo Real aftershaves...Combined with the Nodachi perfection is achieved every time! Rest of Shavers? You want them ..go to eBay ..but be warned ..they cheap , but are junk compared to the Masamune Nodachi!
I am enjoying the best shaves of my life thanks to my new Masamune razor. I have both baseplates but mostly use the solid bar as I find myself shaving daily for some reason.. If I can wait 4 or more days, l use the open comb plate and it is superb too, its great for cleaning up the back of the neck area as well. R.
I've used the Nodachi SB for several months now and absolutely loved it. I recently acquired the OC version and I can honestly say that I am ABSOLUTELY blown away. The Nodachi OC for me is the perfect balance of efficiency, bladefeel and smoothness. The open comb adds even more efficiency on top of the outstanding SB version, easily taking down several days growth and is the smoothest, high efficiency razor I have ever come across. Where it excels and differs from many razors out there is that even though there is a positive blade exposure, it never feels rough or threatening. In all its smoothness, you can still feel the edge of the blade, giving you a wonderful sense of presence and awareness. The tight clamping mechanism eliminates blade flex/chatter and transmits the tactile sensation of the cutting down the handle. The open comb plate has corner combs that are slightly wider to guard against the blade corner from coming into contact with the skin from between the teeth. Each individual comb tooth is well smoothed and rounded giving an incredibly smooth shave. This is the BEST engineered open comb I have ever used. Kudos to the Tatara team, on an amazing product. My only request for improvement is for the dimpling to extend another inch down the handle... the current dimpling band is slightly too narrow for my fingers. Another wish I would have is to get the razor in 316L Stainless steel with a mirror polish :) Thanks guys for one of the best razors I have ever owned.

This beautiful Masamune Brush Finest Badger, made in partnership with Semogue Portugal, it’s the perfect combination for the Masamune series. Likewise our razors, the brushes are in the same material and design signature. It’s 24mm knot is very ergonomic due to its shape and since it’s Stainless Steel, it is very maneuverable on the hand.

It lathers perfectly and the dense knot feels great on the face with plenty of backbone and very soft tips. Expect zero sheddings or hair loss, and a large amount of lather with no problem, even in very hard water.


Our brushes are made in partnership with Semogue, one of the finest brush manufacturers in the World, led by the legendary Mr. Gomes and his son.

The handles of our brushes are in the 303 high-grade stainless steel material.

The hair from our brushes is selected and put in place in Semogue, by the hand of Mr. Gomes himself.

So, you don’t have just a beautiful product, but also a handcrafted masterpiece.


All brushes at Semogue are handmade with absolute attention to detail to ensure that any brush goes to the customer no less than perfect.

Semogue is making shaving brushes since 1954, and the business and skills passed from generation to generation.

Therefore, polishing the art of making traditional brushes. Semogue is the only brush manufacturer in Portugal, and one of the few in Europe.


We make our brushes from the most exclusive materials. We use Finest Badger and Premium Boar hair as we believe those are the best choice for our brushes.

Finest badger hair is a bit longer and thicker than regular badger hair. It has incredible water retention properties and holds your shaving cream superbly which results in less razor skipping and dragging, the major causes for skin irritation. Additionally, it cleans your skin from dirt and oils and opens your pores at the same time.

Also, the durability is remarkable, such so people claim to use a single badger brush for decades!

On top of that, the handles are made from the same AISI 303 stainless steel as the razor itself, so you can know it will also last a lifetime.


All Masamune Brushes have the Dark edition.
The black PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) is a thin film coating process with a high adherence applied through a vacuum deposition process of highly ionized plasma in a PVD machine, at high temperatures. This allows obtaining coatings of high purity, chemically inert and biocompatible.
