I've been wet shaving for two years and this was my second safty razor. My first was a Vander Hagen similar to this one. However I dropped that razor and ruined it. I wanted to try the R1 since it's available in gunmetal. So compared to the Vander Hagen this Rockwell R1 has a wider handle, slightly heavier weight, a bit more aggressive head and I think better build quality. The end result is a smoother shave. Combined with a sharper blade this razor really does perform well. I also have a Rockwell T2 that my wife bought me recently, but I still come back to the R1 once in a while because it's so easy and convenient to use. I might pickup a second in the future, but this one still looks brand new like the day I bought it. Definitely an excellent first razor or an affordable razor for everyday use.
The first few shaves are the hardest to get the technique down but after that it’s good.
I absolutely love my razor. Very good quality and I love that it's eco friendly!
Loved the 6s. Always will. But this thing is terrible. Haven't had so many weepers for years. Dont give this to a rookie unless you hate him.
Really like the razor and handle. Best shave ive had in a long time. Some instructions for newbies would be nice though
I have only used my new razor a few times but overall, I am impressed! Very nice weight and handle and I feel better knowing that I am significantly reducing my plastic waste by switching to a safety razor. You do need to be careful about your angles when you use it since the blades are super sharp (which is a good thing!)
Easy to use. Close shave. No irritation. Eco friendly. Everyone should get one!
Really pleased with this razor! I was done with the cream strip/scented/multi-blade plastic razors and wanted to switch to something that wouldn't become an environmental nuisance. So far Rockwell razor has ticked all the boxes.
This is a great razor. It's got a great grip and super secure screw-in mechanism to hold the blade in the razor. The razors themselves are super sharp and flexible but I miraculously haven't sliced myself open yet. As long as you move slowly, with short strokes, and check the angle you're using with the razor, you shouldn't have a single problem. Using this razor has helped me cut down on a ton of waste, as well, as I only have to buy recyclable blades from this point on. I'm super in love with this purchase and recommend it to everyone I know. Frankly, shaving is kind of a special treat now. I've had no in-grown hairs and very little irritation and it delivers a really good shave.
Perfect razor, perfect shave. I bought the razor yesterday and today I made my first shave with it. Much better shave than the one I did with my previous razor (Wilkinson sword classic double edge razor - black, plastic). Much deeper shave with safety and without any cuts. Thank you Rockwell!
