    Just received my Rockwell 6S last night and ended up trying it out this morning, and holy balls is it nice! I've been wet shaving for only 6 months now using the Edwin Jagger DE89, it's a great razor don't get me wrong, but I've always felt something was a bit off in my shaves. I've come to the conclusion that the de89 was just too mild for me, I ended up needing to do around 4 passes in order to get a bbs shave, which came with some irritation around the neck/jaw area. I decided I needed something more aggressive and the Rockwell seemed to good to pass up, and it really is good. I started with setting 5 for the fist couple of passes using Gillette Silver Blues (wtg, xtg), and it just cut like butter with no irritation or cuts. I switched to the 4 plate for the ATG pass and ended up getting just a couple of nicks on my neck (near the adams apple) but that's my usual trouble spot. But throughout each pass, the shave felt super smooth. Next time I'll use a lower setting for the ATG pass and see how that goes.

    All in all, I'm really happy with this razor, the weight feels amazing as well, you can literally let the weight of the razor do the work, as they say.
