Just got a Rockwell 6C and so far (two shaves) I find the small unknurled section near the end of the handle bothers me. My little finger keeps slipping off the handle because that section is smooth. I know this is nitpicking and I probably just need to change my grip on the handle. but old habits are hard to break. I read somewhere that someone else had problems griping the handle. For him after a few weeks the handle became less slippery. He suspected some oils (from manufacturing) finally wore off. Hopefully after use the same will happen with this razor.
