Hello,

What Rockwelll base plate would be equivalent to the ATT M1 in terms of aggressiveness?

Thank You

Probably #2 or # 3.....(at least for me)...but a lot smoother....love that razor on # 3...even with the enclosed Rockwell blades.

Same here, this razor really shines for me on the 3rd base plate.

I also use the #3 base plate.  I was just wondering if my sensitive skin (especially neck area) can handle the ATT M1.

I have sensitive skin and I use an ATT M2 without any issues.  I think the extra blade exposure compared to other mild razors helps me with angle and pressure, resulting in an irritation free shave.  I find that I get the most irritation on razors that are so mild I can't feel the blade.

Do you mean the Rockwell is smoother than the ATT, or vice versa?

Construction-wise, the ATT is terrific, but there's no comparison between it and the Rockwell when it comes to actually shaving. The ATT M1 plate didn't cut at all for me, and the R1 felt rough. Rockwell plates 1 and 2 are smooth, mild, and comparatively more efficient. Plate 3 is another step up in efficiency from those without losing the mild.

For me and my face (light beard not particularly sensitive skin) My Rockwell S is equal to the ATT SE and a Wolfman with a normal gap.

Thanks for all the comparison points.  I've been wondering the same...very sensitive skin to certain razors and the reviews on the SS M1 have been a little inconsistent in describing its nature.

I've never owned or tried an ATT.

My Rockwell, however, is amazing! I've never, ever, had a less than exceptional shave with it.

Today, PAA Sangre de Drago, my M6 Simpson, with a thrice used PermaSharp. 3 pass, BBS. No problem going ATG in the crankiest areas.

This shave, stuck with plate 4. Occasionally flip it over for pass #3 if I feel sensitive, but rarely.

This is an amazing, flexible razor. I don't imagine the ATT, as good as it is, has the adjustability.

Another one to vote for the 3 plate. I too, also say the Rockwell is a much more comfortable to use razor.
