Masamune Closed Comb

Tatara Masamune: Smoothest shave i ever experienced, done by a security razor. My search is done. Thanks guys.
Rui Alberto Alves
I've now had eight shaves with the Masamune Nodachi, using both closed and open combs. I couldn't wait to try this razor, and, being a wet-shaver of some fourteen years experience, I was perhaps a little too cavalier with a new Feather blade first up in the closed comb...! I frowned, wiped away the blood, and immediately thought - "Well, I'm going to have to try a few combinations here - Masamune base-plate with Nodachi Top-cap - and vice-versa, etc, etc, to find a MILDER configuration...! Fortunately, I had the perspicacity to try a few other blades first: Nacet, Gillette Platinum, Polsilver, Kai and Gillette 7 O'Clock SP. A revelation. This beautifully-engineered, aesthetically wonderous precision instrument is an exhilarating shaver...! The Samurai logo and associated Japanese allusions are NOT out of place - all edges are so FINELY wrought, blade held firm in place, and even with these medium-sharp blades, the result is uniformly stunning. You have to enjoy 'blade-feel' - that's a given, because... well - you ARE now a SAMURAI....! ...the intimate Samurai of cheek, chin and neck... The open comb is becoming my preferred set-up - it is subtly more effective than the SB, and not intimidating in the slightest. Brilliant. Thanks for everything, gentlemen of Tatara - for this exquisite razor, the attentive service, and the great shaves...!

I'm simply amazed. It has a bit of blade feel, so simply trusting the razor to do work is a must. It left me soooooo smooth after 3 passes with the OC, there's just no words. Machining is top of the line, the threading is as smooth as it can get. It's definitely going to last a lifetime.

First of all i would like to congratulate the Tatara team making these fantastic engineered razors. Feels like a surgical instrument. I have purchased both razors. In addition the Nodachi open comb. These razors are not picky regarding razor blades like many other razors. They give me the smoothest irritation free shaves ever. Love it. I have several other high class razors such as Rex Ambassador, Karve, Timeless and Rocca. It's really hard to use other razors than Tatara in my rotation. Finally i found my perfect razor. Wish i bought it sooner. The customer service is spotless too.
Amazing razor. Got and immediately arranged the best shaving on the two-day bristle. Nodachi cap and Masamune plate with Masamune handle, Voshod Blade. It's gorgeous. Comfort and efficiency at height. By feeling softness as on 4 rokwell plates, and efficiency at the level of Muhle Rocca. Excellent daily razor. Bravo, Tatara team.
