Thanks OP, does anyone know if they have had better sales at boxing day or similar? I love my Rockwell 2C and I’ve been saving for a 6S

Can anyone explain how these compare to a Mach 3?

I have tried the 4 and 5 blade cartridges but the blades are too close together, and 2 blade shaving always seems rough.

Never switched back after trying the double edge safety razors. The cartridge razors dull out very quickly for me at least. The safety razors last me months and replacements extremely cheap -- 100 blades for $17 which can last you more than a year probably. Although be careful at first you'll end up giving yourself quite a few cuts.

One of the main things to remember is, ease up on the pressure you are applying to your face - let the weight of the razor do the work. You should hold it so that it *almost* slips through your fingers - very light grip, so quite different than with the cartridge razors. Also, preparation is key - especially lathering up well with a good shave cream/shave soap. Try to avoid the stuff that comes in cans. I prefer tubs over tubes because it's easier to use up that last bit of shave cream. I've tried many shave creams (have not tried soaps yet) and I keep going back to this one:

It lathers well, and you don't need a whole lot of it for each because of that. $18 regular price but often on sale and works out to $10-11 for a tub.

I've been curious about a razor like this for a long, long time.

As someone who is running low on old Dorco Xmas blades, what is the difference between a Double Edge Safety and an Adjustable??

Adjustable is a double edge, just with different "aggression" settings. Rockwell 6C/6S is an adjustable razor in a way, just with interchangeable plates instead of all-in-one. Rockwell's T razor is an adjustable, to give you an idea.

Different manufactures, and even their different razors, all have different "aggression" levels, which is the gap between the plate and the actual blade. So, as a beginner having an interchangeable like the 6C allows you to find that sweet spot for you without buying/trying 6 different razors.

While the SS is the superior material, I've read a few places that the finish doesn't glide as smoothly since it's a machined finish. Just in case you weren't aware of that.

Compared to the 6C?

Yeah, the 6S is a more solid razor and the better material, no doubt, but it's not a smooth finish like a chrome or rodium-plated razor. This causes a bit more friction, and some people don't like it or can't get used to it.

You may love it, I don't know, I was just providing the information. The black 6s is one of my favourite looking razors though.

It's a great hobby. You can collect old razors from buy/sell forums and refurbish them.

You will have to try out about 5-6 types of blades before you find one that works well. Look up videos by "Geo Fat Boy".

I think the prices of this vendor are pretty fair.

Good luck to all!
