I Prefer Karve Handle is perfect and balance also choices of different plates..of all razors I got I prefer Karve and have Collection just waiting on Titanuim & Aluminum and I'm set...I really really like the Charcoal Goods level 2. I can swing getting one more razor. A Karve with 3.25 handle and b c d OC plates or a Tatara. Not sure which one though from Tatara. Leaning toward Karve because I don't care much for long handles. But if I like the CG goods flevel 2 for every other day use, which Tatara would be the best one? I only shave every other day. If I have to shave the next day I will use a tech or red tip in between.
I just don't know much about Tatara razors and which one I should get. Or jus screw it and order a Tradere. Long handle but....wow! What a gorgeous handle.
Thanks @Fedsbackhand, I spent hours and hours here and the other forum last night reading through reviews on Nodarchi and its long handle which people sounded like having issues with. At this point I'm in a situation where I can only get the Nodachi with its long handle if I want to go with Tatara. I'm not prepared to order direct from Portugal for a custom razors with Nodachi head and Masamune handle because of limited budget. I personally like the looks of the longer, heavier handle a bit better. The gist of the problem, it sounded to me, was the maneuverability and agility of the longer handle. Several reviewers said the Masamune was a lot easier to move and manouver with..... can’t say the heavier one had a negative impact on the shave. Go for if you like a heavier handle. Grip was fine by the way... .
