It’s a great razor. I’m new to safety razors and glad to have this one.

Great Razor, Clean shave

As a first time buyer, I was hesitant at first because of the price, it seemed too cheap to be quality. But man was I surprised. I use it a couple times a week and have had it a couple weeks, and the first blade still works like a charm. Would recommend 10/10!



My favourite butterfly razor R1-Chrome

The Rockwell R1-Chrome is more than just a beginners razor. I find it’s only default setting sits closer to an R3 ( 6C setting) interms of the blades position. It has a great weight. It’s not slippery in the hand either. Feels great on my face. Perfect for a first DE razor as well. The construction is top notch on this baby! The cost factor on this is a steal! Highly recommended! Rockwell you did it again!!!


This is a really good product,bought 1 for myself and 1 for my son. A good close shave.


I like the razor, but I was hoping it would do away with razorburn. I didnt get razorburn immediately, but it csme back with a vengence the next day. Really smooth shave though and I didnt cut myself as much as I feared.

Rockwell 6S The Biggest Bargain Out tThere.

What first caught my eye, when I saw this razor, was the clamshell opening. It reminded me of the old Gillette razor I learned to shave with. Next, the price was outstanding. I couldn't believe it. Cheaper than a disposable. Easy and quick to clean and dry. Finally, the perfect travel razor. At this price point if it disappeared from my luggage or got left behind it would be financially easy to replace. AlI I need do is simply to mail the razor blades ahead. The first shave was a bit harsh but resulted in a clean shave. For my second shave, I used a different blade than the brand supplied with the razor. The shave smoothed out and a perfect shave was obtained with no nicks, skips or irritation. I use the razor now not only for travel but as a razor for light shaving days. Don't let this bargain get away from you.

Rockwell Review

I only had a few small nicks the 1st day I shaved, but none since then. It provides a very close and comfortable shave and I am happy!

The good ole days

It's nice to find a razor that takes a double edge blade
and is so handsome, too!

Really worth the money!

Rockwell has a great product here! I have another of their razors as well.and after my recent experience, I am so glad that bought their products.
When I bought the R1, I put it away for a bit. I had a few razors and I had to get around to it.
Three weeks later I said time to try the R!, but upon inspection I noticed that the safety bar was severly bent on one side. I am sure it was damaged in transit.
I wrote Rockwell's general mailbox and explained my situation. Next day, I got an email from Gareth, the company president, and without any hesitation I had a new R1 a few days later. No proof of purchase necessary and no need to return the defective razor. What a nice thing to do. Now that is how to build a business.

The R! is an amazing product! Not aggressive. Easy to clean and to change heads. Heavy. Great handle. With a Rockwell blade I had one of my best shaves ever!

But, as incredible as the R1 is, a company that will stand behind their products for life and honour it, makes it even better!

Thank-you Rockwell for being errrrr..... Rockwell!

They really did a good job on this one

Love it

It’s a great razor. I’m new to safety razors and glad to have this one.

Well built, but too small. Razor, travel brush and a stick of deodorant is about all that will fit.
