Rocnel 2019 Sailor Series LE Adjustable Razor
The Rocnel Sailor Series Adjustable razor traces its origins back to the collaboration between Murat of Rocnel razors and Hasan Kose of Barbaros razors back in 2016. It was the first machined stainless steel adjustable razor on the market and, it was an instant classic.
Shortly after the release of the B&R adjustable, Hasan took a few years off from manufacturing razors for personal reasons. Murat carried the torch for the adjustable razor, refined and altered the design, and then released the first Sailor Series adjustable razor in February of 2018.
Now, nearly two years later, Murat has further refined the Sailor Series adjustable razor. The 2019/20 Limited Edition will weigh in at 146g abd will have an 85mm handle. The adjustment mechanism is a continuous adjustment (no set clicks) so that you can dial it into the exact level of aggression that you desire. It is marked with an M and an A (for aggressive and mild) so that you can get your bearings but in reality, you can actually go two full turns past A if you are feeling especially adventurous.
Machined out of 316L Stainless Steel, the Sailor Series razor actually consists of 10 Separate machined parts. The machining is excellent and, the razor is built to last a lifetime. Only 100 Sailor Series razors of this design will be made.

Without a doubt! The Rocnel Sailor is the most perfect adjustable razor I've ever used!
Having discovered Rocnel through their Elite series They instantly became my favorite razors . With sensitive skin I've always used mild razors until I tried the aggressive Elite and never looked back. The Salor was appealing because of the adjustability , the outstanding build quality and design . while expensive it is completely worth the price. The heavier weight allows for a very light touch . The most effective and comfortable knurling of any razor handle . The seemingly large head gets into tight spots like under nose without problem. Shave quality is The best I've ever had , extremely efficient yet very smooth and gentile . Absolutely my favorite razor of all time so my high end collection Now sits idle . The only slight negative is that it is a bit harder to clean due to more parts of the adjustable head . I highly recommend the Salor . Limited production and high price my keep some away , But get one if you can .
I've had the Sailor 2 for a while now. The machining, fit and finish are exactly what you'd expect. The design as others have stated is a bit angular/blocky, adds to the hefty feeling if you enjoy heavier sticks. I tend to prefer aggressive razors yet find the upper end of the mid range a sweet spot for the sailor 2, dialing it all the way up flirts with overkill and perhaps warrants a bit more care than pre-coffee me has to offer most mornings.
First I thank Phill for his great service and fast shipping
The Rocnel Sailor is a beast of a Safetyrazor
It do wat it need to do
From Medium to A+ The finish look great
Personally I would say with the next edition
Loose the sharp edges ik looks beautiful
But with cleaning I like more that the edges are just a little bit rounder.
But it is a hell of a razor
I just want to begin this review by saying that this razor is truly special. This is easily the best shaving adjustable razor ever created, vintage or modern, period.
But the thing about this razor that has struck me is that it very well may be the best shaving razor I’ve ever used and yes I’ve got all the premium hardware.
Even at the lowest of the mild settings this razor will shave closer and more efficiently than all but the highest blade gap razors but the Sailor is smoother and more efficient than all of them.
If you’ve been on the fence about the Sailor, do yourself a favor and pick one up. I promise you won’t be disappointed in the razor or the shave!
Special thanks to Bullgoose and Rocnel for making this masterful piece of shaving hardware available.
