    Was hoping DESR stood for double edge straight razor. Would get that scary bastard 
    Lol. I tried using a straight razor for a time in university. Don’t think I’ll go back to that. 
    My first shave I cut myself pretty good, Oct, 2003. Cut free since. Was an Octoberfest event in Maine that day, met a lot of women that day. The St Pauli girls kept giving me free beers. Haven't bought a blade since. My beard hair is thick and jams razors, with the straight it's actually noisy to shave. Hear each one pop.. mine are from the 1930s, easy to resharpen once a year if needed
    I think my issue was that I had bought a relatively cheap piece on Ebay. 

    Show us your wares!

    Were I shaving my face only, I’d gladly revisit a straight razor. Given I also do my head, I am less eager. 
    Cheap straight is no good. The thrties razor is new/old stock with a buffalo handle German Wacker. At camp is a fifties hoffritz razor
    Real men use hand chipped obsidian with the froth from a rabid raccoon as lather.
    My viking ax is sharp enough, would it work with that. Where to buy the obsidian, racoon froth is an easy find.  I'll stick with Mitchell's wool fat

    I didn’t know I needed a new razor. I’ve always used the disposables and have bitched about them for years. Just ordered the 6S all in one kit.

    These don’t clog as much and are easier to rinse out than the multi blade disposables

    I half-feel guilty but am also laughing. Only your review can ultimately conclude whether my guilt is deserved. For me, the absolute sweet spot is on setting 3. I shave daily against grain with no issues. 

    I should mention that you’ll find that different brands of blades change the experience considerably. Kinda like making espresso - the grinder is as important if not more so than the espresso machine. You’ll want to test some blades out to see what works for you. Personally, I found the Rockwells harsh for my skin. As mentioned, the Astra Platinums have been working magic for me. You’ll save cash if you buy blades in quantity. I buy 300 at a time - at $40CAD ($0.13 a blade), still downright cheap compared to cartridges.

    I have sensitive skin, I have to use the froth from a rabid beaver!  Sometimes, finding a rabid one is half the fun!

    I usually leave the shaving posts to @sgh, but just wanted to say that I just bought two more Rockwell 6S razors - a standalone razor to serve amy own backup should I ever lose my current one, and a complete razor and accessory gift set to give my son once he is of shaving age (which won’t be for at least about a decade and a half).

    The 6S is really an amazing DESR. I have no affiliation with the company, but have been extremely happy in using the 6S the last several years 

    Sales on lots of their products until the end of day today. https://getrockwell.com/
    Went and looked at these online a while back, but then thought the blades might not 'fly' with TSA. We like to use just carry-ons and a personal bag. Have you run into this issue?

    Only ever checked it. I would strongly suspect TSA would have an issue with them. 

    Not at all on topic, but my carry on is usually a collapsible carbon fiber guitar that meets TSA requirements.

    Here is what I found regarding carry-on razors from TSA-

    "Safety razors" are not disposable

    One type of razor that's sometimes the subject of misunderstanding is the old-school "safety razor," which still has its fans even in the modern age of high-tech, multi-blade shavers. This is the type that takes thin, flat, rectangular blades, which may be removed and disposed of once they get dull. To be clear, this doesn't make it a "disposable" razor. The blades are a potentially lethal weapon as-is, and they can't be brought in your carry-on. If you stow the blades in your checked luggage, the empty handle can travel in the carry-on with you."

    @SonVolt, I can’t say enough good things about the Romeo 5. Have mine on an Sig MPX 9mm with a 4” barrel and a DeadAir Ghost. Technically a pistol, but with a brace. It zeroed at 50 yards with no issues

    You’re entirely right. They’d make fantastic garrottes. You could even choose the gauge of string that was most to your liking. And don’t get me started on how easily the end of strings can pierce skin. Ask me how I know.

    @bradleya123 - Have absolutely zero interest in playing the Sirius subscription game. Blocked their e-mail and listen to my own music while in the vehicle.
    I would almost rather listen to AM radio with all the static and advertising than be involved with Sirius.
