Rockwell 6S 3R and Star Jelly again

with 2 comments

I decided to try Phoenix Artisan’s Star Jelly once more, but after shaving with a different razor. My Simpson Duke 3 Best made a terrific lather from Alt-Eleven, which is the standard Phoenix Artisan soap rather than CK-6, and the Rockwell did indeed do a great job. I really like this razor for a number of reasons: I like the baseplate grips at the ends of the baseplate, I certainly like how it shaves, I like that it’s made of stainless steel, and I particularly like the feel of the handle.

Three passes, quite smooth, and a dab of Alt-Eleven Star Jelly — and lo!, the supple smooth skin presents itself.

I think it’s a combination of prep, soap formulation, razor, blade, aftershave, and luck.

  1. I have a Razorock Game Changer .84 plate, would the Rockwell 6S be worth the investment? Would it be a significant improvement over the Game Changer? I appreciate any advice you can give…I really enjoy your posts, and look forward to reading them.
    Take care!

  2. I’ll use that Game Changer tomorrow to have a recent comparison. I like the .68-P also, and perhaps a smidge more. But let me shave with the .82-P tomorrow and see.
