The Rockwell 6C Razor is our top pick for an environmentally friendly safety razor made with chromed alloy. If you treat it well, this razor could last you the rest of your life. It is ergonomic, beautifully designed, easy to use, and has a lifetime warranty. Seriously, if you drop it and it breaks, they’ll ship you another one for free because they hate disposable razors that much.

This fully adjustable safety razor is ideal for any skin type and stubble length, offering a close, comfortable shave. The patented design offers six levels of blade ‘gap’, so you can tailor the closeness, smoothness, and comfort of your shave. This also makes the Rockwell a great choice for beginner shavers who can then adjust as their confidence grows.

The Rockwell 6C is cast from premium high-end chromed zinc alloys and is available in White Chrome or Gunmetal finish. It will pay for itself in just a few months and can help prevent razor burn, cuts and ingrown hairs.

Rockwell also offer pure Swedish Stainless Steel Blades, with 5 blades included with each razor. Replacement blades cost just 10 cents each and blades can be collected and recycled with other scrap metals, making this wonderfully eco-friendly. The razor itself consists of 1 knurled handle, 1 ⅓ Plate, 1 2/4 Plate, 1 ⅚ Plate and 1 cap.

We also like the Rockwell 6S (View on Amazon). They call this the Heirloom razor and it offers all six blade angle settings in pure 316L stainless steel.

Rockwell 6C and 6S vs. Merkur

The Rockwell 6C and 6S are stylish and versatile safety razors that are ideal if you plan on sharing your razor, using it on different types of body hair, or are a beginner to shaving. These models offer six blade settings, allowing you to tailor your shave for close comfort. The Merkur (View on Amazon) does not offer such versatility but does have a lower price point and a longer handle that is appealing to some. The Rockwell 6C and 6S come with 5 blades, while the Merkur only comes with one. 

All in all, there’s not a lot to choose between the Merkur and the Rockwell models, although we favor the Rockwells because of their greater flexibility, lifetime warranty, and genuine commitment to cutting out the waste from shaving.
