The name TATARA (鑪) is inspired by the furnace where the forge masters used to smelt the steel for Samurai swords in ancient Japan. Like the Japanese katanas, our products are made with extreme dedication and attention to detail. Combining this with the obsessive precision of modern engineering.

Based in Porto, Portugal, we are an engineering team passionate about product development. We came together in September 2016 to dream, design, and develop TATARA’s shaving products. By noticing a market saturation in non-differential DE razors we dare to imagine a clean and elegant safety razor (SR). This one, strongly supported by minimalism, design, and with the goal of reaching a smooth and efficient shaving. While in product development we tried several combinations of blade gap, angle, and exposure. Through Safety razor users, we perceived that characteristics like vibration and blade alignment were actually crucial to reach a comfortable and smooth shave.

Assuring machining tolerances (0.02 mm), we could reinforce the right placing of the parts and limit the blade movements between the plate and the cap of the Safety razor. However, we noticed other variables that were still affecting the shaving experience! We knew we could help the wet shaving and we had just found our mission! Misson: “To sustainably create exceptional long-lasting products, and provide a pleasurable and comfortable shaving experience.”
