Rockwell, Rockwell, Rockwell! It feels so nice to be able to say that without getting banned and to see a group that appreciates this razor. A friend was actually trying to convince me to get started wetshaving back when Rockwell were on Kickstarter for the first time. I pledged so it was technically my "first" razor, but got a bit of the AD and started in before it got to me. With the exception of 2 shaves I have used the Rockwell V2 for very single shave since I got it, there is just no comparison to other razors. I started with plate 3 but quickly moved up to plate 5/6. I did notice that with one Rockwell I greatly preferred the 6 plate but with a different one I prefer the 5 plate. The other is making the rounds on its 3rd passaround and sucking in more and more people to the club. My current every other day shave is Rockwell S6 on plate 5/6 using the V1 handle. I just love the extra sharp knurling. Gillette 7 O'clock Green Super Stainless (Russian) Italian Barber 26mm synthetic Mitchell's Wool Fat (occasionally use something else to switch things up) Thayers Rose Institut Karite ASB when it is dry I have fairly sensitive skin with tough hair and a mildly annoying beard growth pattern and with this setup I get irritation free DFS's (I can't chase ATG BBS, not worth the pain) which is something I did not get with any other razors. The Model T and 6C Chrome have both been pledged for. Cheers Folks I agree with the 89 comparison. It shaves like a 3-4 but the Rockwell is much smoother.
