The claim of a 2-pass BBS shave is no joke, this razor is efficient as can be. It's also more aggressive than I'm used to, so a gentle touch is a must...it's a heavy razor, so let its weight and gravity do the work.
The machining and finish are outstanding. The feel in hand is well-balanced and secure.
Is any razor worth nearly $300? I suspect that's a personal judgement to be made by the individual, but I will say it performs at the price point and fits my every expectation. This will be a razor to last the remainder of my lifetime and several beyond that.
Great customer service and shipping from Phil, as always. One of the best vendors in the game.
Excelente maquina, buen acabado produce unos excelentes afeitados
I have been wanting to try a single edge razor for some time but the SE razors are almost always out of stock and usually marked way up on eBay. When this model came up for grabs, I jumped on it so that I could try one and pay retail price for it. I have to say, I'm impressed. I have previously used the Feather single edge razors using the traditional shavettes but no matter how hard I tried, I would end up cutting myself slightly with those likely due to my poor technique. Using this razor I am able to use a SE blade in a more traditional format for me and can achieve a perfect BBS shave in 2 passes. When I try a third pass, I end up with a little razor burn/ irritation.
Either way, I like it and have been using it as my primary razor since opening the box.
The Rocnel SE-50 is a great AC razor. It is heavy but very smooth shave with no pressure. The finish is Rocnel good with very tight tolerances. I have several AC style razors and the SE-50 ranks in the top. The first time putting the blade in a sliding system that I wasn't familiar with was a little confusion. However after learning a trick or two there isn't any issue. As I said Great Razor, good job Rocnel and Phil!
Pro tip: You don't need to unscrew the cap to insert a blade. Just loosen the thread, slide the blade in, and tighten.
Awesome results. The razor is a notch or two above the vector in efficiency, but since AC blades are so rigid there is no irritation risk at all. My new favorite AC style razor.
