If you try the Rockwell in your Rockwell (or any other razor, for that matter), let us know about your experience.

Really?  I didn't know they had a prime version. Like the new Derby's huh? I have a couple of those on the way too.

You got it, amigo

Yeah, it’s starting to get a little confusing with all the Ps. Platinums have been around for a while, but now we’re getting these Premiums and Primes… Somebody needs to come up with a new letter to describe their blades!  Tongue

I cant give these things away. LITERALLY.
(before I get PMs, the remainder I have arent worth the price of postage for a PIF, LITERALLY)
Exactly! The new kickstarter for the adjustable razor includes 100 blades as a "perk". I've asked them to give it to someone else, so I won't have to deal with another 100 (to my 95 remaining blades...) blades... I can't get myself to throw them away, but nobody wants them even for free!

After thinking about this post, I have to wonder if Rockwell is in the same position we are....giving them away....and not finding any takers.

A perplexing plethora of platinum, premium and prime providing perfect perfection. Shave-wise, that is. Couldn't pass up the alliteration opportunity.

An update to my findings. Usually I keep a blade for 4–8 shaves, because some blades actually get better after the first couple of uses. But I must admit that I tossed the Rockwell after two shaves.

Cons: First pass of first shave was tug mania. First pass of second shave was “Why isn’t this thing cutting anything?” (The second passes of each shave I was wondering how many more passes I would have to make to get to even DFS.)

Pros: The blades are so blunt that you would really have to put forth some serious effort to nick yourself.

Since I still have a few of these Rockwell blades left, I’ll probably revisit the blade in another razor in the future, just to see if things turn out differently.
