Type: Safety Razor
Manufacturer: Rockwell Razors
Let me put it this way. I also have the REX ambassador which costs $250 and I love it. It is one of the best safety razors out there, but the Rockwell 6S wins. With the 6S you don't feel the blade on your face. It is very forgiven. It is almost as it didn't have a blade, but it cuts all you facial hair. It is the perfect combination of smoothness and efficiency. I have quite a lot of safety razors, I know is crazy, but I have more than 30 and the Rockwell 6S Is the best. I can hardly imagine a safety razor better than this.
I purchased the Rockwell 6S for various reasons. I haven't had the opportunity to use many razors, actually only two to be precise. I started with the Edwin Jagger DE89 and used if for a few months and then I purchased a Gillette razor from 1964. After using both of these razors and noticed how different they were on how they performed I decided it would be worth trying something with more range of differences like materials, weight and form. I had had my eye on the Rockwell 6S for quite some time, thought the plates were an interesting way to explore the difference between blade gaps. The material I wanted was the stainless, something about the idea of the life expectancy and toughness of the stainless I find worthwhile and price point with the Rockwell is fantastic. The way the razor looks online is great but holding it is so sweet, it feels so good, I am very happy with my decision to have purchased it. Like I've seen mentioned here by others Dave is a super easy person to deal with and has always treated me with excellent service. If there more than five stars I world absolutely give this site all the stars available as there are only five stars available than five stars it is. But I'm giving 6 stars anyway. :)
Great razor! Solid construction and value. Most other stainless razors cost upwards of $200, you get 6 razors for half the price with the interchangeable plates. I also want to comment on the great service provided by David here at grown man shave. Had problems with 2 of the plates being dinged up due to bad QA by Rockwell. He got right on it and is getting me replacements from them. The razor was here in 2 days after order placement! Thanks for the great service!
