Hello all,

  This is old news to a lot of people, but I just heard about a new adjustable razor coming out on the market March 2017. Did anybody have good experiences from this companies products? How good is the build and quality of Rockwell razors?

I heard they had a little trouble with version 1 of the s6. But they did make it right with the costomers, and I commend them for that.

I'm interested in this too but it's such a long time off so I decided to just wait for their finished product.

In a way I also agree. I don't know what to expect. The last razor they put out had two versions, the first version they had issues. But from what I've read they got better manufacturing people, and better quality control. Long story short they made up for all the poor in quality razors, buy replacing the faulty parts.

The Rockwell 6s is one of the best razors I own and used in a rotation with my blackbird. It knocked some very high end razors out of rotation.

I'm an early backer for the model T, I'm not expecting anything groundbreaking but if I can get the same shave as my 6s without having to change plates I'll be a happy camper.

I'm also a backer of the Model T. I currently have the 6S and LOVE it!

I'm usually rotating my 50+ safety razors....not really since getting the Rockwell.

I was not a recipient of the original version, but I can highly recommend the quality and performance of the 6S. I'd imagine the Model T will be a winner as well.

Me too. 6s is amazing. I'm buying razors now just to see what can best it.

I wished they looked prettier and probably slimmer so that it's easier on the mustache area but other than that, its awesome. Money well spent!

It is a kickstarter project and no links are permitted. The razor will be all brass and then chromed. It will be similar to a Gillette adjustable. I opted out of the program because I didn't want to wait until next March for its release. On another note Parker is coming out with its own adjustable this summer. The razor will be initially distributed by Super Safety Razors (Howie is the North American distributor). I have no idea what the price will be but I am guessing under $60. Again only a guess as I have no inside information.

I wouldn't touch anything Kickstarter with a ten foot pole.

I will be happy to read the reviews and decide then when it's commercially available like I did with the 6S. Which by the way I didn't decide to buy until first batch had been replaced for the early 'supporters' and word hit that the revised razors were good.

I wish them all the success in the world.

I'm not independently wealthy nor am I a venture capitalist. So if and when it comes to fruition I'll be very interested to read the production model reviews.
