Why use the Rockwell 6s razor?
Posted on February 19 2017
Since we introduced these only a few weeks ago, we have had a great demand and they have been flying out the door. The question we always get in our email inbox however is 'why use one of these over a standard double edge razor?' So we thought we'd take the time out and answer this question in our regular blog spot for the Ministry of Shave website and Facebook page.
Double-edge safety razors are the modern gentleman’s preferred way to shave. The personal adjustability of the Rockwell 6S allows you to adjust the razor to perfectly suit your skin, facial hair, and shaving soap – ensuring a close, smooth, and comfortable shave every time. Made of stainless steel, the Rockwell 6S not only looks elegant, but is hefty enough to ensure easy maneuvering and durable enough to survive a drop on the floor.
The Rockwell 6S includes the following all stainless steel components, made in the USA:
– Handle with knurled grip
– 3 reversible base plates providing sizes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6
– Plate A: Sizes 1 and 3, Plate B: Sizes 2 and 4, Plate C: Sizes 5 and 6
– Blade cap
– 5 Rockwell double-edge razor blades
Each base plate has a different blade gap on each side. Just flip the plate over to get a brand new shave.
Why Use an Adjustable Safety Razor Like the Rockwell 6S?
You have unique skin and facial hair, and your razor should reflect that. Cartridge razors and standard safety razors pretend that one size fits all when shaving, which leads to irritation and cuts. The adjustability of the Rockwell 6S allows you to find a smooth, comfortable, and close shave every day, no matter what the condition of your skin or the length and thickness of your facial hair.
The different sizes represent slight adjustments in the angle and gap between the blade and the razor. The Rockwell 6S includes all 6 sizes so you can discover your perfect shave. The Rockwell 6S uses affordable, comfortable, and recyclable double-edge razor blades. The Rockwell 6S is compatible with all blades, but we recommend Rockwell Double-Edge Razor Blades. Each Rockwell 6S comes with 5 Rockwell Double-Edge Razor Blades.
Along with what comes in the box, you can also opt to purchase the Rockwell Razor base, an ideal place to store your razor which will look great on any bathroom sink. Travel a bit and want to take your razor? Pick up the Rockwell Razor Sheath as well to keep your blades damage free during travel. You'll need extra blade and the cost effective and recycled Rockwell blades fit the bill perfectly.
