How to use a Rockwell Razor

How to use a Rockwell Razor

1. Choose your setting

The number you see displayed on the bottom of your assembled razor is the size you're shaving with! R1 is our mildest setting and makes it impossible to cut yourself - we suggest starting there. Later, you can adjust the razor to a setting that performs best for your unique skin and hair.

2. Prep your skin & hair

A key ingredient to a flawless shaving experience is the prep. Use your shave brush and a quality natural cream or soap to massage the skin and prepare stubble for an effortless shave.

3. The shave

Prepare to be amazed. When shaving, use short, gentle strokes. You don't need to apply pressure (don't press and drag!) Instead, let the weight of the razor do the bulk of the work. Take your time to get a feel for the razor and you'll be wet shaving like an expert in no time. 

4. Replace the blade

For most users, Rockwell blades will last between 4 - 7 shaves, depending on the density of your hair. Once you feel a bit of tugging or pulling, it's probably time to change the blade. Use the Rockwell blade safe to store your used blades until you're ready to recycle the whole tin.
