A few customers have had difficulty loading a blade into the Rocnel SE50. It's actually not too hard once you know the trick. I made a short video this morning and hope that it helps. Be sure to turn up the volume.

Mike, you raise a good point.  It's foreseeable that the little screws will get dropped down the drain or otherwise lost.

They are M5 x 12mm, I believe. I would suggest using loctite to permanently affix the set screw to the handle. 

You can probably find a replacement set screw at your local hardware store but, I'll see if Murat can send me some spares with my next shipment

Strange - I can only see the video via Firefox on a 2021 iPad Pro. With chrome or safari, it doesn’t show up.
I tested posting a youtube video via two means, it works (but only for FF). Perhaps it’s an iOS 15.1 bug

Anyhow - back to our regularly scheduled program: It’s somewhat strange to me that the SE50 set screw comes out like that. I wonder why that is?

Great if you can get extras and maybe include them. Maybe it's easier in the US, which is basically hardware supplies heaven, but in other countries, it's a pain to find stainless steel screws. Most hardware stores over here only carry the stuff that rusts so easily.

Been using this for a week of daily shaves. Murat told me it was aggressive but I find his gauge to be off for me. Extremely comfortable, and the rigidity of AC blades contribute to a irritation free shave. If you can accept the weight you will not find a better shaving ac style razor.

I thought this would take a backseat to the sailor, but I enjoy the shave every bit as much.

I'm really glad to hear that you are enjoying the Rocnel SE. I also do not find it to be an aggressive shaver. It's definitely smooth.
