First shave report:

My initial impression that the Masamune is a mild razors is not far of the mark, it did a good job of taming the Feather blade – a blade I haven’t seen eye to eye with for a long time. The balance is good, handle provided me with a secure grip, and the design of the base plate and handle gives a reasonable large contact surface between the two while making sure no excess stress is placed on the threads.
