Taken from numbeo.com, cost of the daily things you can do with your 25$ in US.
Please read the above chart again this time slowly.

What if there is a product for that same 25 Usd. 
A product, you will enjoy using for many years, a product that you can pass to your offsprings, or a beautiful present making your long time shaver friend smile,
maybe first tempting call for a friend to the wet shaving community. 

A product, not like the quality of  an  ATT 303 Stainless Steel Razor, but better, a 316 Chromium Nickel Stainless Steel containing molybdenum. Generally used in special sectors like jewelry, aerospace industry(jet engine parts), pharmaceutical,marine etc

A product, not like a Rockwell, not just a stainless steel handle, but better, a truly CNC machined head and the handle engraved from  stainless steel blocks.
A product that doesn't have any top/bottom plates, no moving parts, no welded parts.

A product that is not outsourced from china, but made by one single firm from start to finish. Patent pending search and developments, angular computerized models and real life samples tried hundreds of time.

A product that is made by a Turkish firm with 25 years of experience in producing heavy machinery parts, robotic parts and mold manufacturing in industrial and defense industry.  

A product;
that carries all the mentioned specs above for a price of 2 bottles of wine.

I present you with honour, Rocnel SS De Razor.

What I got as a customer/Presentation:

Beautifully presented natural cardboard box. Inside the box, wax stamped authentification certificate. The beauty, Rocnel 316 Stainless Steel Razor, wrapped in a linen cloth securely.
A presentation that makes you smile and feel special when you hold it.
The Razor itself, is just like a hornbach hammer. It’s not like my Merkur 41c, which is light and cute; on the contrary so serious, feels like a gun, a solid piece of hardcore metal.

Loading The Blade :

You don't need a dice to count how many times you used that blade. Just use half of a normal DE blade for one or few times(YMMV).
You don't need to unscrew anything to load your blade. Break a  ordinary DE blade in half and push it into the slot while holding from sides.
The slot is specially designed with a 0.01 mm precision and curvature. When easily  placed, it holds securely, there is no play or stretch on the blade, solid as a rock.

A sample video of one of our friends from Turkish shave-forum Geltir, showing how to load the blade to a Rocnel.




Usage/Characteristics of the Razor:

Close and efficient.
It's a just a tad on the aggressive side. But just a little. If you like the 34c, you will like the Rocnel.

Weight is 53 grams for head and 80 grams for the handle. Any person a newbie or an experienced wet shaver can use it easily.
First time you touch it to your face, you will go slowly as I did, not knowing what will it feel like, but after few strokes you find out it's no different than a normal De safety razor.

I used it daily for 3 days and also after a 2 day weekend rest. It gets the job done smoothly  in both conditions. Used it with Tabac, Saponificio Varesino, Arko soaps and Tobs Avocado and Proraso creams. I feel like rinsing a few times more in heavy foams like Arko, so similar to a fatboy.

Overall as I said before, close and efficient without any rash or burn.

Handle Only Usage:

Next day, I took out my beautiful CNC machined Rocnel handle, and tried it on my Razorock Mentor De Head. Wow, that handle looks handsome on any DE-head attached.
Steel Handle makes the shave easy. I simply let the weight do the work.
Flat handle isn't slippery as I thought it would be, so happy with my choice. Rocnel will also offer a diamond pattern handled set or separate handles alone.
Shave finished beautifully with my Phoenix soap.

A week passed quickly trying that Rocnel handle with original and different razor heads.

What more can a Rocnel give me?
With start of a new week, shall we leave the Double Edge aside and enter a whole different world. The Single Edge. Sisi
[Image: md1uvt.jpg]
Let's unscrew that Stainless Steel Hex Socket screw and mount it to a 1912 Gem Junior and make that a frankenstein Single Edge razor.
Please turn down the volume of that music you are listening, at least while using a SE head in a shave. That whisker cutting sound of the 90 years old SE, that beautiful handle to hold. It's just a symphony of something old and something new.

Summary:

There is a new quality in the market, different and fresh new approach to wet shaving.
A design made from scratch, with multi usage scenarios for a lifetime.
A new brand that I believe, we will hear many times with variety of quality stainless products in wet shave community.

Thank you Rocnel, welcome aboard. You made us wait, but better late than never. 
...So what you say folks, still wanna spend that money on a 2 bottles of wine Smile

Best Regards

Notes:

Soon you will have opportunity to order online internationally  from executive seller.
mod edit : link removed per forum rules

You will have variations of handles (flat and diamond pattern),
Optionally you will be able to order separate handles and a beautiful special stainless steel base.

About the product quality, service and after sale support, do not have any hesitations. Rocnel is behind the product and also seller Extrashaving is well known company in Turkey and in our wet shaving community. You can trust both firms.

Beautiful design. I missed the preorder but emailed the owner and he responded pretty quick so I might already be on the wait list but don't know.

It is a great razor.  I got both handles also, but unfortunately didn't get the nice stand.  It wasn't offered when I pre-ordered.  I'll get one later Biggrin

Still confused about how to order one.  Went to extrashaving website and didn't see it listed at all; also no search function that I could find. 


A little help?

My friend, a pre-order list was open directly from Rocnel company, but they decided to stop direct sell from company and instead through distributors and re-sellers.



People who has submitted their name to that pre-order list before, will receive their products directly from Rocnel in a short time. 



İf you are not in that pre-order list, within a month or so, you will be able to order online internationally from the reseller extrashaving. The product is not listed in their site now, because they do not have it in stock, but soon will be.



I am continuously making shave product purchases from that reseller for myself, whenever rocnel comes to stocks and if I see their listing, I will let you know from this thread. If you see before me, you inform us. I think between 20-50days period all Rocnels will be ready to order.(from the info of the owner that shared in our local shaving form)

It's a great razor. I agree with the review that it's close and efficient, and a tad on the aggressive side but YMMV. It is a very close shave and I enjoy the razor, especially for the uniqueness. A fantastic razor that will make great in your rotation!

Excellent and very informative review dikdik_s. Thank you very much.
Are you a user/tester or the seller of the razor?

Because I was an active member of our local wet shaving form, first products were sold to members like me, but for example the time I buy the product, diamond pattern shaped handle was not ready, so I ordered with the flat handle. 

I am just a end-user and I give importance to wet shaving, I believe this product will be a game changer for wet shaving community, not only just this product also the company's future plans for a all stainless steel 3 piece DE razor under 40USD
If Rocnel wasn't a Turkish brand, I would be excited the same way as I do now, because cheaper quality products means more users will be able to join wet shaving each coming day.
It will be easy to persuade a friend to wet shaving, suggesting someone a beautiful shining razor that costs 25usd like Rocnel, instead of a 20usd plastic cartridge razor system he/she is already using. 

I don't know if I make myself clear. Shy
