Sorry I've been a bit quiet on this one, been a bit nutty this month!
I'm just about done with the Tatara Masamune, and ready to pass it onto @nolisco, so have dropped a PM over for address details
What can I say? Well, it is definitely a ting of beauty. The precision, and the quality of finish are outstanding. I like the chice between straight bar and open comb, and found I preferred the open comb. It is beautifully presented, and the heft makes it sit nicely in the hand.
I started off with my goto blade, Personna Med-Prep, in the straight bar, and have to say that I just found it a little mild for me, and was relying on the slickness of the soap to go over the same areas a bit too much.
Switched it up to a Feather, and found that better, and better again with the Feather in the open comb.
Slight panic at the thought of only being able to select from one blade type though! Bit like the thought of only being able to use one soap or brush!
So, great to try, but not a must-have for me. I think there are too many razors on my shelf that I would reach for first, but we are all different.
Thanks to @Paul from Connaught for putting the razor into the pass-around, and for Andreas (@riverrun) for co-ordinating it.
