Masamune Nodachi Razor

All TATARA products are 100% produced in Portugal. CNC machined in AISI 303 high-grade stainless steel, hand finished and sandblasted, in order to give the beautiful final effect to a high-quality product.

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.

The Nodachi is an absolutely amazing razor. Very smooth, extremely efficient, perfect tolerances and spotless finish!!! It may well become my favourite razor! Well done guys!


To ensure maximum performance and longevity, we machine all the pieces
from solid material and machined with tolerances up to 0,02mm.


The Masamune series is in all aspects focused
in simplicity and minimalism.
It features the simple and classic 3 pieces assembly design
that will never get old or compromise.


Specially designed for the Masamune Series and one of the exclusive specifications. It is responsible for:
- High perpendicularity between handle and razor head which permits better precision during the shaving:
- Symmetrical load distribution on the threads preventing excessive wear and increasing resistance.


The wide contact area that supports the blade between the cap and base plate is one of the most important features of our razors. It guarantees that the blade does not vibrate during the shave. Therefore avoids blade chatter and assures the smoothest shave possible.


All Masamune Razors 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. Above all, this allows obtaining coatings of high purity, chemically inert and biocompatible.


All pieces from the Masamune Series are hand finished to extinguish every machining marks and to soften all the edges.


After the final hand-finishing, we apply a sandblast treatment.
The most important characteristic of this treatment is to achieve a smoother and peaceful look.
Consequently, we apply the sandblast finish piece by piece.


Your Masamune Series is packed in a natural cork box. Involved by a black silk paper, and finally, sealed manually with black wax.
Cork is the bark of the cork oak, which means that it is 100% natural plant tissue.
In addition, Cork is the only wood that you can obtain without cutting the tree. In other words, a sustainable material.

The Masamune Nodachi


The Masamune Nodachi Razor is an update from the Masamune Razor. Like the original
Nodachi katanas, it is longer and the blade feeling is amplified. All in favour of a closer and sharper shaving experience.
