  1. Thank you for your response

    I apologize as I had the correct model number but the wrong description for Rockwell 6s. The new razors should be arriving the end of this month for those who placed orders.

  2. The Rockwell 6S is not the twist-to-open on kickstarter – it’s the handle, top cap and trio of baseplates that flip for different blade gap. The delay is that the latest batch had finish that didn’t match what Gareth required for QC.
