Everyone tends to like Astra SP, but they don't get along with me. I prefer polsilver, Gillette silver blue, Gillette nacet, Gillette black, and voskhods. Just started using Perma-sharps and they are fantastic too. Some people need a smooth duller blade to avoid irritation. My skin prefers sharp and smooth, even the sharpest blades seem dull after the third use, for me.

There really is no substitute for just trying many different blades.  What works or doesn't work on someone else may not apply to your skin.

Whatever you do, don't try a Feather ... Maybe you can try your favorite blade after 2-3 shaves on your Rockwell. 
The best thing I can recommend for sensitive skin is good lather and a sharp str8 razor.

For the record which Wilkinson : Chinese, Indian, German?

I think specific blade recommendations are pretty useless. Trial and error. I will note that a lot of people with sensitive skin swear by sharp blades, while those using dull blades seem to still complain about irritation.

Yes, it is entirely possible that you will fall in love with it, because the light touch that the Feather’s sharpness allows might eliminate the cause of skin irritation entirely.   And then you would miss out on the excitement of trying several other blades that require a firmer touch.

For me:
Gillette Platinum
Polsilver Super Iridium
Gillette Nacet

* With the Guerrilla, the blade needs to sit on your face at a very shallow angle (probably 20 degrees or less), otherwise the blade hides behind the safety bar and won't cut, it will tug/scrape. Be sure to get this part right, or it really won't matter what blade you choose.

I have sensitive skin and love the Wizamet Super Iridium Extra Stainless blades.  They're smooth and work well in every razor that I've used.

I think the Gillette 7-0-clock yellows are pretty good for sensitive skin. My skin is terribly sensitive, but I have had good results with this blade!

I did find a Polsilver in my blade box. tried it today after only 1.5 days of reset, is not 30 min after the shave feel a little warm but not much. could have gotten a little closer under my cheek alway a problem for me there..

guess i need to use a sharper blade in it to get a better shave...

Try working on your angle a bit. This razor is quite different from most razors in the handle needs to be more perpendicular to your face than many razors. I would suggest sticking with that blade for at least 5 shaves working on angle before switching out to try another blade.
Edit: my reason for saying this, is in my experience with it, Guerrilla is a very mild razor.
