    First Impressions Rockwell 6S / Muhle Rocca

    I've been DE shaving for over a year. I mostly shaved with a Merkur 34C and only recently I changed to the 37C (thanks!). These are just first impressions. I shaved with each razor three times. I shaved first with the Rocca because I received it first, and then the 6S a couple of weeks later...

    Rocca / Gillette 7 O'clock Yellow0️⃣ This is an aggressive razor :a53: I think I won't need to shave for the next two days. Ouch.

    I want to upgrade from Merkur 34C

    Thanks, gents. I completely agree. I think I needed a couple of more shaves to get familiar with it. I had a slow shave this morning and got a great result. I used a Personna Blue blade. My face feels smooth and great with no irritation - just a little over the lip area... but is really my...

    I want to upgrade from Merkur 34C

    I loved the 34C. I learned to shave with it. It was a long and difficult road but I stuck with it and by the end, I was really enjoying myself and getting some great shaves. I paired it with Gilette 7 o'clock Yellow blades. I've sold the 34C. Yesterday I shaved with it for the last time. I've...

    I want to upgrade from Merkur 34C

    I thought I'd give an update on the 37C. First shave, my face felt sore ... for days. Second shave wasn't much better, and I was ready to sell it on eBay. Third shave went better and changed my mind. It has potential. Fourth shave, I actually enjoyed myself, but my face still felt a bit sore...

    I want to upgrade from Merkur 34C

    @Old Hippie, thanks for the long reply much appreciated. @Cal, thanks for that, it makes sense. I get it now. Today I shaved with the Feather Popular. It's my first DE razor and haven't used it in a year. It's so much milder than the 34C. It's frustrating because it forces me to put pressure. I...

    I want to upgrade from Merkur 34C

    Really? No modern razor on the market today could be an upgrade to the 34C? Wow, that's quite a revelation there! So it's all hype :302:... Jeez! I'm sure I'm not fully understanding what you mean. Anyways, both CGs are out of stock and I will have to get on the waiting list. Same goes for the...

    I want to upgrade from Merkur 34C

    I've considered that too. So many choices. Thanks so much for the input. Some people seem to find it too aggressive for everyday use. If I order the GC I will get both plates for sure.
