KS Update #30 - The New Rockwell 6S is Here!
The day has finally arrived! After receiving the first article and being extremely impressed with what we see, we’re moving ahead with full production of the MIM Rockwell 6S. The fit and finish is fantastic, and detailed dimensional analysis and measurement on the first article samples shows that MIM manufacturing was absolutely the right choice. We should also mention - the shave is incredible. Check out the razor on www.rockwellrazors.com!
The new Rockwell 6S is now available for pre-order, and all our backers have been emailed a coupon code to get it for free. The coupon code is valid for the number of Rockwell 6S’s you originally pledged for or bought. Be sure to keep it secret and safe! Check out the email for all the details on how to redeem your coupon. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now that we've approved the first article and moved to full production we expect to start shipping razors in mid-December. We know that you want to get your razor as soon as possible but we will carefully QC each and every one of these razors and will only ship product that meets all our strict quality standards. That means we can’t give you a firm ship date until we receive the product from full production. You will also see that we are offering all our backers free shipping, but we are also offering expedited shipping methods as an option. For those of you who are looking to get the razor super fast once it’s available, we recommend you look at the expedited options.
In addition to the new Rockwell 6S, we’ve released a bunch of additional products we think you’ll love. You guys have already heard about our Rockwell Stainless Steel Stand, and the Rockwell Sheath - and this month, we have something new that we’re proud to announce. From the start, our goal has been to make innovative classic shaving products at an incredible price, and to us, an important part of the fulfilling this goal in classic shaving was to offer our own double-edge blades. Today, we’re excited to announce that Rockwell Double-Edge Razor Blades are now available!
Rockwell Double-Edge Razor Blades are made of Swedish Stainless Steel, and are compatible with all double-edge safety razors. The pure stainless steel that forms these blades protects them against rust, while the specialized treatment that crafts these blades ensures the blades retain their exceptional sharpness. Each blade is individually double-wrapped, free of wax dots, to ensure the sharpness of each blade without leaving any wax residue on the blades. Our goal was to offer the best safety razor blade on the market, at an amazing price. The attention to detail and manufacturing innovations that have gone into crafting the Rockwell Double-Edge Razor Blade have produced a blade that we feel meets both these criteria.
The Rockwell Blade Safe is a safe, convenient way to dispose of used double-edge razor blades. The Rockwell Blade Safe fits all double-edge razor blades and is completely recyclable - once it's full, simply throw it in the recycling!
In case you missed our announcements about the Rockwell Stainless Steel Stand or the Rockwell Sheath, here are pictures of what you’ll be getting if you order these awesome additions with your free replacement Rockwell 6S.
We wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support through this campaign - we love the new Rockwell 6S and we think you will too. We have staked our reputation and the future of Rockwell Razors with this investment in a full replacement razor with free shipping - we’re doing this because it is the right thing to do and know you feel the same way. Some of you have suggested that we open up a way to accept additional donations to support what is our ongoing commitment to this Kickstarter project.You can add contributions to your cart in $10 increments at this link, and we really appreciate any pledge you choose to give towards this round of production. It would go a long way to ensuring we can continue innovating on classic shaving products. Additional ways you can support us financially include: purchasing additional Rockwell 6S’s (they’re great as gifts!), or accessories to go with your free Rockwell 6S like the Stand, Blades, Blade Bank, Sheath or the fancy new Coffee Mug. As an alternative to contributing financially, we also really appreciate shares on Facebook or tweets about the new #Rockwell6S, as that helps us get the word out about this fantastic new razor! As always, if you have any feedback, feel free to share in the comments! If you have any specific questions or concerns, please reach out at email@example.com and we’ll get back to you ASAP.
