It was a cracking razor thanks mate.

After recently purchasing a Hone Type15 from a forum member and then after trying the Tatara also, I’m finding I tend to prefer a heavier razor and the Tatara is quite light compared to what I’m used to (Timeless Bronze OC mostly).

However it was enjoyable to use and gave a fantastic irritation free shave when I paired it up with a Gillette 7 o’clock SP blade. Despite it being lighter than I’m used to I would happily include one in my rotation due to its performance.

For now, I’ve cleaned it up and re-boxed it again for Benz3ne, so it should be going out today in the post on my lunch break. I’ll update when it’s gone.

Thanks for including me in this pass around, really appreciate it.

Last night;

Tatara Masamune
Ladas (#1)
OSP

First use of the Tatara with thanks to the generous pass-around. I couldn’t have done things more incorrectly. I bathed beforehand, didn’t quite wet my face enough before trying to lather up, didn’t have quite a damp enough brush and subsequently the lather was beyond sub-par. Yet somehow, still something of a mystery to me, I had an impeccable shave. One pass and a couple of minor touch-ups and I had a belter of a shave. I’m still smooth this morning.
This definitely warrants attempt two tomorrow with a, hopefully, more successful lather.
I love the presentation and build quality. Both are fantastic and it slots together so neatly. Weight is great for me and blade feel is a little low but I cannot fault the efficiency of this. If all good continues I could happily grab one and use only this herein.
