Rockwell 6s DE Razor First Use & Thoughts (Head Shaving)

I just bring along my 6s with the 4/2 baseplate in the truck all week. I exclusively use “setting” 4 now. If I had the opportunity to shave everyday, I might have to flip it to 2, but I’ll never know. I don’t get the chance to shave daily.

not used 2 but i assume it would be too mild tbh
 
hey people so i just had my first ever head shave with the rockwell 6s de razor which i paired with a gillette silver blue for it's second use bare in mind I usually bin the blade after one use

had just over 24 hours worth of growth an bare i mind i have very thick coarse hair too and I wouldn't normally shave so soon after my last head shave but was excited to finally try out this razor

started off with the number three plate as I was like might as well start down the middle then went onto the plate four as I felt I need a bit more aggression and did the whole of the head shave with number four

I'd say I'm an average sort of speed head shaver, defo not the fastest but felt quicker then normal not sure if it's due to shaving less hai growth then what I'm used or whether credit goes to the razor tbh

anyways the razor was so smooth, absolutely no blade chatter at all WTG, XTG & ATG, the razor mowed it down comfortable and felt very smooth, no real irritation and not much sting with the alum block post shave

I don't usually shave as often as I like but I assume ill be using plate 5/6 most the time in the future imho

although I got the stainless steel handle on the iKon slant x3 which i recently tried after a few strokes I put it down knowing it was way too mild for me, so this is my first real stainless steel de razor I've used,

It feels like real quality using it,
I can now understand why some wet shavers say they consider stainless steel razors to be more of a lifelong razor

wasnt sure if I'd like the whole flipping plates as oppose to switched a dial but honestly it's so easy, such a minor thing now that I've used it but I could understand why someone may be a bit apprehensive to buy the razor based on it not being adjustable in the 'traditional' way

I now see why across the board I've always read and heard good things about the Rockwell 6s, like they say the proofs in the pudding

very impressed with this razor 😍🪒
Just wanted to say thank you for starting this thread. Been a wetshaver since my dad taught me 3+ decades ago and been a head shaver for the past 15 years or so. I've been looking at DE razors for a couple of months and bought a cheap one to make sure it was something I would like. It's a Vikings Blade Chieftain Jr and I'm using Parker blades if anyone wanted to know. Now that I've got several weeks of experience (tho very much still the novice) I decided that I wasn't going back to cartridges and began looking for a better razor. Kept coming back to the 6S and finally decided to make the investment. It should hopefully be in my hands sometime next week and I'm really looking forward to using it. Your experience with it, especially as a head shaver, was one of the final things to sell me on it so again thank you.

Also thank you to everyone on the forum who mentioned tryablade. I purchased an assortment of blades and I'm looking forward to seeing which ones will become my favorites.

No worries mate

If you create a thread or reply on this one I'd love to see what you think of it after your first use

Not sure what you're planning to use but I say go all out on plate 6 with a feather blade too, can't go wrong with that combo imho YMMV 🙂
