Double-edge safety razors are the modern gentleman's preferred way to shave. The personal adjustability of the Rockwell 6S allows you to adjust the razor to perfectly suit your skin, facial hair, and shaving soap - ensuring a close, smooth, and comfortable shave every time. Made of stainless steel, the Rockwell 6S not only looks elegant, but is hefty enough to ensure easy maneuvering and durable enough to survive a drop on the floor.
We've improved the Rockwell look and durability by Revamping the razor in ultra-bright Rhodium plating. Rhodium is a hard white metal in the group of platinum metals. It is very resistant to corrosion and will not tarnish. It is also very reflective and has a brilliant white shine. It is a precious metal, more expensive than the more commonly known gold and platinum. Cleaning rhodium is about as easy as it comes: a simple light scrub with a soft-bristle tooth brush and dish soap should remove any soap scum that may form on the surfaces over time with normal usage. Lightly buff the metal with a dry cotton cloth or a Razor Emporium polishing cloth with specialized compounds woven in the fabric when you're done rinsing it.
Rockwell Razors have a three week turnaround time once your order is placed.
The Rockwell 6S includes the following all stainless steel components, made in the USA:
- 1 Handle with knurled grip
- 3 reversible base plates providing sizes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6
- Plate A: Sizes 1 and 3, Plate B: Sizes 2 and 4, Plate C: Sizes 5 and 6
- 1 Blade cap
- 5 Rockwell double-edge razor blades
Each base plate has a different blade gap on each side. Just flip the plate over to get a brand new shave.
Why Use an Adjustable Safety Razor Like the Rockwell 6S?
You have unique skin and facial hair, and your razor should reflect that. Cartridge razors and standard safety razors pretend that one size fits all when shaving, which leads to irritation and cuts. The adjustability of the Rockwell 6S allows you to find a smooth, comfortable, and close shave every day, no matter what the condition of your skin or the length and thickness of your facial hair. Try a Rockwell 6S with Rockwell Double-Edge Razor Blades to find your perfect shave!
The Rockwell 6S provides six levels of adjustability, to ensure any and every man can redefine the closeness, smoothness, and comfort of their shave. These six levels refer to the space between the blade and the razor. Lower levels are great for men with finer facial hair. Higher levels are best for men with coarser facial hair.
The Rockwell 6S uses affordable, comfortable, and recyclable double-edge razor blades. The Rockwell 6S is compatible with all blades, and each Rockwell 6S comes with 5 Rockwell Double-Edge Razor Blades.
Why Shave with a Classic Safety Razor?
The single blade of a classic safety razor means that you can shave with the grain of your facial hair - irritation-free - and get a smooth shave much better and easier than cartridges can. Most men find shaving with a Rockwell 6S to be a calming experience, and the process of classic shaving to be more relaxing and ritualistic than shaving with cartridge razor. Double-edge razor blades are a fraction of the cost of cartridge razors.
I am an OTR truck driver and often have to sacrafice aesthetics for durability. So some months ago I purchased a Rockwell 6S. I did not realize this selection came with additional drag. I watched Matt's video on the Rhodium plaited 6S he offers and had to get one. It arrived 14 days before their expected ship date! When I opened the car all I could think of was brilliance, the word used to describe reflective light from a diamond! Now I have shaved with my new Rockwell 6SRHI. The glide is amazing compared to the 6S. I highly recommend the purchase for anyone with a 6S. And anyone considering a 6S as well. To Matt and his team I applaud you! This was a genius idea. Now I have durability and aesthetics. Thank you so much!
Although I have Rockwell 6S Double Edge Safety Razor - Rhodium Revamped for not so long I cannot stop myself from giving this review. First to say that I compare it with very competitive razors - Ti Razorock, Plisson Palladium and Mercure 42C. Rhodium Rockwell is second to none of those in appearance and performance. The multiple options with different levels of aggressiveness gives additional advantage - it is suitable for any type of skin and beard. And very important - the razor may be excellent by itself but the revamp work in Rhodium makes it perfect. big congrats to Razor Emporium guys! On the prize - fully covers the value!
Razor is great but the Rhodium plating is absolutely beautiful and makes this an awesome razor! The pictures on the Razor Emporium website don’t do it justice.
I have been shaving with this Rockwell with Rhodium plating for the past two weeks and love it!!
Like the previous review I agree it is more of a matte finish as compared to the shiny Rhodium plating I have from Matt on my Red Tip, Fat Boy, etc.
However, I really like it and it smooths out the handle nicely so it's not so rough like the original finish but still has excellent grip.
I find plates 3-5 the most functional.
The razor is a heavy well made piece of equipment. The finish wasn't what I was expecting, but it was still very nice. I thought with the rhodium plating it would be very shiny, but it was a little closer to matte, still beautiful.
I've found the R1 plate to be useless for me. Almost no blade gap. All the other plates progress from gentle to slightly aggressive. I've used Treet and Feather blades and they both produce good results with plates 2-6.
One of my favorite razors in my collection.
