Breakfast Television - The Full Story Behind Rockwell Razors Founders' Speedy Kickstarter Success

by Gareth Everard September 30, 2014

Two Students Raise Over 80 Thousand Dollars Towards the Launch of an Innovative New Razor 

Rockwell Razors founders, Gareth Everard and Morgan Nordstrom, were featured on Toronto's popular Breakfast Television on September 26th. The two University of Western students discussed their successful Kickstarter campaign, which has now raised over 80 thousand dollars toward the retail release of the Rockwell 6S Razor in less than two weeks.

"We raised all of our goal--everything we needed to make our razor – in under 24 hours," said Gareth. "Now, we've passed 72 thousand dollars raised from over one thousand people around the world."

Speaking of numbers, the segment also detailed how the innovative Rockwell 6S Razor--which combines the precision and nostalgia of a traditional razor with the efficiency and customizability come to be expected from any 21st century product--will shave hundreds of dollars off individuals' yearly razor budgets by eliminating the need for cartridges.

"We're both students--we're price sensitive," said Morgan. "There has to be a better way to shave than buying expensive cartridges, but we couldn't find anything out there, so we created it. We created The Rockwell 6S."

In addition, the young entrepreneurs revealed their razor prototype, a sleek and classic-looking safety razor with one major update: it is completely customizable. Equipped with 6 different shave sizes that allow slight adjustments in the angle and gap between the razor and blade, the Rockwell 6S can be completely personalized to a man's beard type, from thin and sparse to coarse and curly and everything in between.

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.
