I have just received my 6S Shave kit. It was worth the wait. The weight and feel of the razor in my hand is remarkable. The substantial mass makes it feel more steady. Much like the difference of weight of an all-metal camera as opposed to the flimsy feel of a plastic camera. The shave is smooth and consistent and I didn't nick myself as I frequently do with my cheap safety razor I bought in a bargain shop. (Never again!) Thank you Rockwell.
I used the first-production chrome Rockwell 6C for approx 1.5 years, and then the threads loosened too much that it would just slip. This (updated) version of the handle includes a stainless steel insert in the threading section, so longevity is increased.
Coming from a Merkur Futur clone that served me well, I wanted a razor made of premium materials. The 6S was it for me after much research, specially due the adjustability. After the first shave, I realized I had made the right choice. The razor feels like a solid tool that holds the blade while shaving. That is it's primary function and it does it well. The weight makes it glide down the skin, with no pressure required. Highly recommended if you are looking for a premium razor at a reasonable price.
Service was excellent too, a small issue with the shaving cream was resolved with a replacement tub, with no hassles. Very professional.
Thank you Rockwell Razors.
I really like the razor and shaving cream. I was a little worried about shaving with this style of razor, but now I wish I would have bought one sooner!
Nice smooth shave with convenient adjustability
