Yeah, YMMV, but I'd be interested in thoughts about blade experiences with a Rockwell. Happy with the Rockwell blade, or does another blade do better with you? Thanks for the input!

I didn't like the Rockwell blades.  I liked the GSBs and Polsilver SI in my Rockwell.

I like Feather blades in mine. Polsilver SI and Bic Chrome Platinum work well too.

I tried the Rockwell blades when I received my 6S and I liked them. Not quite enough to order more than the 5 pack it came with, but I considered it. I have so many great blades. All of those mentioned in posts above and more. It was a surprisingly good blade for me though. How good it is for you depends on your whiskers and skin. There are sharper/smoother blades out there, but the Rockwell blades are a great deal if you like them.

I don't have a Rockwell, but I have tried the blades.  They were ok, but not quite as sharp as I like.  My blade of choice in any razor is Personna Lab.

I don't really care for the Rockwell blades.  They shave but not as smooth as Feather or Gillette Silverblue in my 6S or any other razor.

I’ve found the Rockwell blades to be even worse than Merkurs.

I love PermaSharps in my Rockwells. In most of my DE’s...

Gilette 7'Oclock Yellows were game changing for me in the 6S. Tried them in my Charcoal Goods razor later on and didn't agree with me for some reason. YMMV!
