As I mentioned last week I was able to shave with the Rockwell Razor prototype. I have a few more shaves with it under my belt now.
My first impression using the razor is that is has a good, solid feel. It’s pretty well balanced, too.
My biggest concern was if the size of the base plate would be too big for those difficult to shave places like under the nose. It turned out to be no problem at all, and I was able to get into tight areas without any trouble.
I tried most of the base plate settings and they all worked as expected. While I found that it is possible to change base plates during a shave, the Rockwell isn’t really meant to be adjusted on the fly in the same way as, say, a Merkur Progress. That’s OK though, because I think it’s an apples to oranges comparison anyway.
The bottom line is the Rockwell Razor is a great idea and the prototype I shaved with proved the concept. I encourage you to follow along with their kickstarter campaign.
