Razorock announces the time of the Game changer razor release !
Finally ! The much awaited game changer safety razor CNC milled from 316L by Razorock is to go live as per the tweet from Joe. That would be 6:30 am IST here in Mumbai. Very excited to see this after waiting for months when it was announced. A razor to challenge the CNC milled safety razor market by players who sell three piece stainless steel razors north of minimum 185$.
The RR Mamba straight bar and the RR wunderbar slant razor shattered the market by announcing razors at 50$ and 125$.
While the SS Mamba was well received it recieved a mix response and is generally throught to be a mild but efficient razor. The wunderbar on the other hand is a beard slayer and needs an extremely light touch and not recommended for the beginners in wet shaving.
A middle of the line aggressive and smooth razor was natural progression for Razorock which was more on the line of Razors by Wolfmann, Above the Tie and Timless amongst the most preferred CNC milled stainless steel razors. All these razors are in the $$$ niche range.
The Rockwell Kickstarter project shattered the SS market by announcing their 6 base plate version of stainless steel Razor which was precision designed and very smooth and effective and sold in the thousands.
While smooth and very efficient with 6 levels of aggression, it didn’t steal the thunder as a quality CNC milled SS razors, due to it being injection molded to keep cost down. It is very functional, precise, with an industrial look which is bead blasted to a matte finish. It fell out of favour with many who did not approve of its looks or its thick head profile and some also its weight. Many described the shaves as extremely smooth and efficient but “boring”. Wet shaving has moved beyond just a low cost alternative to expensive plastic cartridge razors to also being about enjoying a great shave with good quality products. It’s not only about precision but also about style. The big $$$ brands seem to fill in this need making wet shaving a very expensive hobby.
Enter the Game changer – the successor to the fantastic RR Mamba with its superb design, thin head profile and precision. Joe believes it’s all about tolerances along with good balance of design and art for his razors. Exotic designs and mirror finishes increase the price and production release time and volume for CNC milled SS razors exponentially.
The Razorock Game changer is about to change that with the right balance of price, design, release time and unit volumes with extremely tight tolerances.
Simple elegant design with reasonable tumble finish polishing which guarantees high precision and those tight tolerances.

Why did we call this razor the Game Changer? It’s really simple! This razor was produced to a standard that is superior to razors which typically costs 4-8 times the price, yet in usual RazoRock fashion we are bringing you the highest standards of quality at a price everyone can afford. The RazoRock Game Changer is built to last a lifetime, machined from marine grade billet stainless steel, the same way a Swiss watch case is machined. This is a razor you can depend on forever!
Build: Full CNC machined to tolerances of two thousandths of an inch
This summarises the soul of the Game Changer and I am eagerly waiting for it’s release at 9 PM EDT / 6:30 AM IST
