KS Update #19 - Updated Shipping Timeline

by Gareth Everard January 23, 2015

ear Backers,

We’re happy to say we’ve worked out solutions to the aesthetic and functional issues the initial batch of Rockwell 6S’s experienced, and are prepared to share a new proposed timeline with all of you. In our initial batch, we approved polishing techniques used on the heads that would theoretically have matched the appearance as closely as possible to the appearance of the handle. Unfortunately, this polish did not scale as we expected when thousands of razors were polished at once, as opposed to the initial small batches we saw. Our finishing partners will now be belt polishing the flat surfaces of each piece, so scaling up to thousands of pieces won’t be a problem. The bowing issues on some of the caps will be corrected by grinding down the underside of the affected caps. Knowing these are the necessary solutions, we’re currently aiming to have all the razors and replacement shipped out by February 28th. Here’s our current target schedule:

February 9th - belt polishing and machine grinding completed 
February 23rd - quality control and additional hand finishing, as necessary, completed
February 27th - assembly and packaging completed
February 28th - shipment

We’ll be doing assembly and fulfillment ourselves now, and will be shipping all Canadian orders by Canada Post, and all US and International orders by USPS. We’ll be posting weekly updates to keep you posted on our progress, and to share pictures as the fixes come in.

We’ve received all requests for replacement parts, though if you have questions for us please direct them through the Kickstarter messages system. Thank you for your patience and support while we finish up all your Rockwell 6S’s!

Worth the purchase!

Just ordered this 5/6 plate to test out for myself to see if it's better than using 2/4 plate so far was using 5 to start then switch to 3 for final pass. It works good but will try 6 later on when I'm used to using #5.

Great close shave!

That razor just glides through the foam leaving smooth skin behind! Awesome.

razor fits like a glove

My 6c fits into the inkwell razor stand like a glove.

Excellent shave

I had initially purchased a cheep Qshave razor on amazon just to test the waters. After a couple shaves, I knew I didn't want to go back to cartridge shaving. I decided to pull the trigger and buy a DE razor that would last my lifetime. I ended up finding the rockwell 6s highly recommended on many youtube channels and forums.

The shave I get with this razor is impeccable. Plates 3 and 4 are perfect for everyday shaves, and plates 5 and 6 are great when I neglect shaving for a fewdays-weeks. The construction of the problem and finish is awesome. I love the look of the razor. Very satisfied customer.
