ill try and do a shave tonight and pay attention.  ive not really paid attention to my angle with the razor but then I think I'm a non conformist to razor grip in my hand. what ever the angle is, this razor can give me a 2 day shave due to not really needing a back to back shave with it

edit. I do think it took about a week to zero in on an angle that was perfect for me

Both beautifully designed an excellent razors I feel that the Tatara is better quality and it has a smaller thinner head the Karve has a bulkier head and probably smoother shaver but both very efficient you can't go wrong with either one. The quality and workmanship of the Tatara is better but that's what you're paying for being that it is more expensive

I'm going to say my angle us 30-35 degree range from horizontal

It is a nice looking razor. However, it is not machined. It was made using an injection molding process. Still good looking.

Stan, the Tatara website indicates it is CNC machined.

They are claiming that the "spheres are CNC machined for a netter grip" which can be true. However, the head is clearly not machined.

Stan, you're correct that it states it has "CNC machined spheres."  However, just below that it says "CNC machined in Portugal with dimensional and geometrical tolerances of up to 0.02mm."

Also, the insert which comes with the razor states it's CNC machined.  Perhaps the matte, sand blasted finish explains the appearance of the head.

I'm afraid you are wrong Stan. The razor is 100% machined by Tatara from solid blocks of stainless steel. Joao explained that is the only way they could make the razor with tolerances of 0,02 mm. There are videos of the production on the Tatara Instagram page.

Here are two videos showing the machining process.  These were posted on the Shave Nook Group on Facebook.  You do have to be a FB member and logged in to see these.
