-- Tuesday, March 10--

Prep: Face wash with bath soap and water
Razor: Rockwell S6 on "3"
Blade: Lord Platinum Series (1)
Brush: LoveYourShave (LYS) brush of my manufacture with TGN two band finest
Soap: Stirling Anise
Scuttle: None
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant alum stick and Thayers's witch hazel

Image

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. My first shave with the Rockwell S6. I went for the "3" setting ("1" through "6" available aggressiveness settings). I felt that the razor was fairly aggressive at "3" without being crazy. I used a brand new mild blade (Lord Platinum) and the result was excellent. BBS and next to no blood. I did feel the razor could have been smoother and quieter. Still, the shaving experience was good and the result is wonderful. I will reserve my judgement until a few shaves in with different soaps and blades, but so far the razor feels good. I may polish it up a bit on the top plate as that felt like it had a lot of drag on my skin. Minor complaint.
