Doesn't live up to expectations

OK, full disclosure. This isn't the first safety razor I've bought and I've been used to premium models from Merkur and Rockwell. I bought it for no better reason than I wanted a cheap razor that I could chuck in my travel bag and not worry if it was confiscated at the airport. I also liked the promise that it was virtually impossible to nick yourself as the setting was so mild. Rockwell razors have a reputation for quality engineering (hence the lifetime warranty) but this felt like a cheap copy. The butterfly doors were rattley and the opening mechanism lacked the smoothness of the Model T. Maybe I should have set my expectations lower, a lot lower, given the price point but this was the first disappointment. Worst of all, and most important, was the shave itself. Far from mild, this was the most aggressive shave I've experienced since I started traditional shaving at the beginning of lockdown. The cuts and nicks were so bad that I couldn't even finish the shave. I'd have to dial my other Rockwell or Merkur adjustable up to settings 4-6 to get a shave as aggressive as this and that's a level I'm not going anywhere near just now. This is the fifth DE razor I've tested and by far the worst shaving experience of them all. I can accept compromise with the build quality given the price but the shave really didn't live up to the promise in the razor's description (which is replicated on Rockwell's own site so I'm not blaming Agent Shave).

The Rockwell R1

Firstly, thank you to the Agents for a great service. The Rockwell R1 or the Rookie as it is sometimes referred too, Makes for a great shave. After using Bic disposables or anything else lying around bits of flint etc. (Joke) I decided I would jump into the world of DE Razors the Rookie proved to be a good choice, the ends of the razor blade are covered unlike a lot of razors so no chance of slicing your nostrils, easy blade change with the butterfly mechanism. The blade gap is small so you would be hard pressed to cut yourself. I can say its a big improvement to both look and feel to my shaves so going to stick with it. To round it up. The razor looks great, the finish is perfect, I understand you can get it in a gun metal. Its a nice weight and grip too, great for a starter razor or a one and only razor. One last thing, the Rockwell razor blades are fine but different blades will effect the shave.
