    Been using my Rockwell 6S R2 almost exclusively for the past few weeks now and paired with either a Voskhod or Vikings Sword it gives me a really pleasant day to day shave with 2 passes only.

    A friend of mine who isn't obsessed with acquisition is really eyeballing the Rockwell, so it has something going for it self, that's for sure!

    Now we're just awaiting @Omelmad for his purchase.. :D

    Since the end of the OCtober focus, I've been using my Rockwell. Two passes per shave with the #4 plate. It is a very consistent shaver and maybe the best utilitarian shaver I've tried. I am contemplating trying out different plates, but think I will stick with the #4 and start trying different blades as the shaver is so consistent, I should be able to tell the difference in the blades. I have a big batch of unopened Wilkenson Swords and some Feathers to revisit. I've been using Gillette Silver Blues from Russia with good success.

    I couldn't fend off the occasional shower and shave no more today, so off to the Den I went. Sorry, no pic, use your imagination (for the shaving stuff!)

    Had 2-3 days of stubble, couldn't quite remember, but it was longish - hence the R4 plate.

    2016 Rockwell 6S (R4)
    Voskhod (3)
    RazoRock Plissoft "Bruce"
    WTG+XTG+ATG
    Phoenix & Beau "Solaris"
    Lime & Pepper bay rum
    It was aaaaaawesome! I was truly presentable (as a fellow like me ever can be) after 2 passes, but did the third anyways for a really nice BBS experience.

    I've used this razor and blade for quite some time now and it's a very nice, stable and trustworthy combo for me. I go 6 shaves with no troubles and then in with a new one. No really noticeable degradation in performance. I guess I could go more, but since I use a dice to count my uses, it's easier to just pop in a new blade after 6 shaves.

    I only have one dice in the red color. One will have to suffice :)

    Wholly Kaw! Fern Concerto (Tallow) really does deliver the goods... I'll be getting more offerings from them in the very near future. ‘The Rock’/Permasharp combo was as reliable as ever. A lovely start to my weekend.

    How are you finding the Perma Compares to other blades, eg Voskhod, Astra and the likes?

    Str8 Shaver Well-Known Member

    I find the Perma a very comfortable blade... sharp and smooth, but as with all blades YMMV... I've just purchased a 100, as I'm extremely happy with how they perform..

    Ever noticed how a really good shave lifts your spirits? Well, ‘The Rock’/Permasharp combo delivered a wonderfully smooth BBS shave.. and I thought it was going to be a case of 'death by Brokkr', the way 'El Monstruo' whipped up an obscene amount of lather...Outstanding! Yeah, my spirits are lifted...

    I don't really know a great deal about Sir Hare, but I do know it produces a BIG protective lather, and ‘The Rock’/7 O'Clock Super Platinum (black) combo is simply superb.. a wonderful start to my weekend..

    what a fantastic shave.. The Drunken Goat stepped upto the mark, and delivered a wonderful lather... ok, the lather is an odd brown colour, and the scent is unusual to say the least, but looking at the ingredients, it's no surprise.. but paired with ‘The Rock’ / 7 O'Clock Super Platinum combo, delivered a Baby Dolphin Smooth shave... lol.

    Hi everyone, i just got my rockwell 6S last night. Shaved on setting 1 and loved it even though it was a touch mild for me. Today i went to switch to setting 2 for tonight's shave and the 2/4 plate was really tight, had a hard time getting it to fit the cap then i tried taking it off and had to push hard on the post. Is that normal? And secondly, should i be concerned? I already emailed Rockwell. Jist wondering if anyone else had issues with the 2/4 plate being a super tight fit.

    Hi sky pilot 83. I did not experience the issue of an overly tight fit. It's good you emailed Rockwell. I am sure they'll make it right. I remember reading that they took care of those that purchased V1, by giving them the second version; so I would say that to replace a plate or top cap is well within their desire and ability. Good luck. Hopefully, it'll get resolved quickly.
