And a Zamak adjustable doesn't need to be hard on the eyes either!
Speaking as a longish-time Rockwell 6S user, I've personally never felt the need to change base-plates mid-shave. I chose the base plate I needed for that day's shave - from start to finish; most often that was plate R3. If I felt the need for either a more, or less, aggressive shave I chose a different plate to meet the need. I did experiment, briefly, with using two plates for a single shave, but found that was really not necessary. I don't know, that's just me and maybe I was doing it wrong. LOL...... I know Rockwell 6S is a so called adjustable, but changing base plates mid shaves for second and third passes - I think it will not be practical.
Pray tell, does the ladder-like order mean the razors at lower position are inferior?I have Brass, Aluminum, semi plastic and Zamak adjustable razors and to Honest about it the brass razors that are nickel and chrome coated are just as good as my 3 pc stainless steel razors IMO. I just bought recently a Yaqi TFC adjustable razor and it is fine piece and works just as good as my other razors and I like Zamak razors also ( I only have a few Zamac razors because I bought a lot of vintage razors).
If you want high end stainless steel razors there are some very nice ones out there but they are pricy IMO.

Have some great shaves!
Sort of I guess, I used them all many times and some are just better than others in design & performance IMO. I have read a lot of posts over the years and when it comes to any razors some folks will love a certain razor that I consider not all that great a performer. A least we can joke about it and have a few laughs hopefully.Pray tell, does the ladder-like order mean the razors at lower position are inferior?
