Tatara Razors -Refined Portuguese Precision

With the proliferation of stainless steel razors hitting the market over the past few years, Tatara razors have flown a bit under the radar.

The New Gillette Swedes Are Here

We just received a shipment of Gillette Platinum DE blades from the St. Petersburg plant in Russia. These blades are supposedly exactly the same as the legendary and vintage Gillette Swede blades that you have heard so much about.  The blades are incredibly sharp, smooth, comfortable and durable. They are probably a touch less sharp than Feather blades but -they are infinitely smoother and more durable.  Sold in boxes of 50, these blades are hard to come by. Be sure to grab some while we can still get them.
