My Rockwell 6S has been my favored razor recently because of the comfort, easy shaves, no irritation, no problems. But I have to admit that I was not a fan of the dull, industrial-looking bead blasted finish of the stainless steel. I decided to try to brighten up the look. First, I attacked it with a generous amount of Flitz metal polish and a lot of vigorous rubbing. I used a toothbrush and Flitz on the knurled handle. I used a rag and Flitz on the top cap. The handle started to look great, but as the bead blasted finish began to disappear from the top cap, it became obvious that the metal had a slight texture from molding I guess. So I decided to go for it and began sanding, starting with 800 grit, then 1000, 1500, and 2000 paper. After I was satisfied that the metal surface was smooth enough, I attacked it with Flitz again. This is the result. I was afraid to use sandpaper on the base plates, worried that I would change the geometry of the shave. I did polish one with Flitz, but it didn't change much in appearance, so I left the others alone. The base plate in the photos is unpolished. As a bonus to the looks of the polished cap, I think the razor glides a little better on my face.
