Hey all!

So post Christmas I'm going to be ordering a 6s or 6c and was wondering if the 6s is worth the extra money and why you think it is or isn't. Thanks!

Both are good razors. However, I think the 6s may be worth the incremental money. It will be a razor that will last you for a very long time. You will definitely enjoy it.

The shave is practically identical from what I can tell so far.  Even the weight difference (in my hand) is not much to speak of, feels pretty much the same. (... from memory between uses... not comparing them one after the other.)
The main difference to me is the feel of the handle... something about the 6c handle is a little slippery at first, as there was probably an oil/lubricant used during manufacturing, and it takes a while to wear that layer away.  The 6s handle has perfect traction right out of the box and is just better grip overall (... but the 6c will probably catch up and feel the same after some more use).

For me, no question, there is no better deal on razors than 6c... I think everyone should have one, for travel at a minimum, if not your daily driver.

BTW - I have NOT ever dropped the 6c.

I have both and while the shave is similar I prefer the feel of the 6S in my hand. Also, the packaging of the 6S is better and you get 100 Rockwell blades included (Which I promptly gave away after trying one blade ).

Hahaha, thanks for your input! I'm leaning towards the 6c since I can use the unspent money on something else to feed my addiction!

Exactly what i did ? i sold my 6S and took $40 of it and bought a 6C brand new then used rest for soaps, AS and synthetic brush .. my 6C shaves every bit as good as the 6S did, i actually find it more eye appealing with the nice chrome finish and i know it will last me years if i take care of it
