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.
The Rockwell 6S includes the following all stainless steel components, made in the USA:
- 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
- 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.
This razor is absolute quality. Love it!
I received this DE razor about 2 weeks ago. It's a nice razor, quite a bit heavier than my others. I have been experimenting with the different plates. I find that for my beard, numbers 3 or 4 are comfortable. The 3 plates allow for close shaving of beards and skins from mild to more aggressive. My only complaint so far is that I had a spot of rust after using the razor for a few days. I have since drying it well and had no issues.
I’m fairly new to DE shaving. Started with a highly regarded razor. Received my 6S in the mail today and tried tonight on plate #2. Started with an Astra Superior platinum blade and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Love the weight and it’s just the right length for my hands. Looking forward to experimenting with different blades and plates. So far so good!!
Love the adjustable system and the weight of this razor. My go to is level 5 with KAI blades
Feels very solid and works very well. I love it. It is the finest razor I have ever owned, much better than the old Gillette speed dials from the 1960's.
I use #6 with any blade and it cuts very close with no nicks. I can shave against the grain on the first pass with no irritation. I'll probably use it for the rest of my life.
Great razor. Get a comfortable shave with all plates from 1-6. You can definitely feel the blade more the higher you go but no irritation or weepers on plate 6. Can get a CCS-DFS with 2 passes on 6. Only complaint is it is a bit of a pain to have to change base plates to change settings, however $99 is a steal compared to prices of "true" adjustable SS razors
This razor is well worth $100. I have found that my two favorite plates are 3 and 4 (seems no matter what blade I use, these two plates give a very close, comfortable shave). That being said, ALL of the plates work incredibly well.
Be prepared for the weight of this razor. I knew it would be heavy, being made of Stainless Steel. But I didn't realize it would be as heavy, in the hand, as it turned out to be. This is not a problem to me. I believe the weight truly helps this razor do an awesome job shaving.
If you're looking to up your razor game, this would be a GREAT place to start. Truly worth the money spent!
I like the razor, I hate the finish! It feels dry and like fine sandpaper! If I would have known how unfinished this razor feels, I definitely would have opted for the rhodium one from Razor Emporium. My next adjustable will be a Rex. RE has a '61 fat boy of mine right now getting a rhodium revamp...fingers crossed. Cheers Gents.
