Gentlemen,

Thank you kindly for your thoughts and feedback on the Blackbird.

Among the thoroughbreds in my stable, is the Rockwell 6S.

Only used the 6-plate once right outta the box, on day-old stubble...with a new Feather blade...as a wet shave infant. Excited to try my first DE, having just tossed an old 5-bladed garden rake cartridge, which was prolly a year old (no joke)...

...I misunderstood Rockwell’s system, and thought I was using the mildest setup.

Scraped hide right off the bone...

Helluva intro to the “new way”.

That was soon-to-be three years ago, and I’ve come a loooong way with this glorious “hobby” of ours. In several cases of new gear I’ve since gathered, I started out thinking this new razor is really aggressive. The 17-4 was that way, as was the Timeless Bronze.

My prep, and technique, have improved to a significant degree, and those two instruments are working very well presently.

I’ll make a final decision on the BB after a few 6-plate shaves with the Rockwell.

On new razors, or blade tryouts, I’m also finding a good dose of super-slick “Cremo” shave cream REALLY helps avoid costly mistakes, while I build a relationship with the new tool.

Speaking of new tool...<drumroll here>...just received my new Karve.


Pretty incredible Chris!

B,C,D-plates.

Feedback soon...

I couldn’t resist the Sale going on at Blackland. I’ve been wanting a Polished SB Blackbird for a long time, and this was the excuse I needed to make it happen. Can’t wait to add it to my rotation along with my Black Oxide SB/OC. Thank You Shane Blackland Razors!

P.S.- I’m still really looking forward to the Blackland Slant!

I think it was 10% off, IIRC.

Blagoja Rajevski That’s correct, it’s 10% off Machined and Polished Blackbirds and Sabres.
