Muhle Rocca compared to Rockwell 6S on plate 6

#1
I currently have the Rockwell 6S and use plate 6 mostly with it. I love the 6S, but would like another razor for my choice/collection.
I would be interested to know, if the Rocca would be more efficient than the Rockwell 6S would be with plate 6, as a reason for me adding a new razor to my collection, would be to have a more efficient razor than I have now.

I have both razors but I'm not sure the Rocca it's more efficient than the Rockwell 6S, I'll pay more attention next time I shave with the Rockwell 6S plate No 6.

I will say though that the Muhler R41 it's more efficient and gives me a smoother shave when I have over a couple of days growth.

Thanks very much for the help.
I'd looked at the R41 and was trying to decide between that and the Rocca, and initially thought the R41, might be a bit too harsh, and that the Rocca might be midway between the 6S on plate 6 and the R41.

I have the Rocca, and this morning did one pass. Quite a decent shave. Usually two passes and touch up gives a clise shave. However, from what I have gathered the r41 is super aggressive .The Rocca is a very nice shaves.

I prefer the R41, it's aggressive but treated with respect it gives a great shave. The Rocca does give you a very efficient shave too. The build quality is better on the Rocca.

Happy to sell you the Rocca.... pm me if interested :)

This morning I shaved with the Rockwell 6S plate 6 and it's a nice shave, equally nice as the Rocca but the Rocca feels more efficient but by the end of the third pass I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two razors.

I still prefer the R41 for a very close shave and the Rockwell as my daily driver.

The Rocca, in comparison with the Rockwell, seems better made, there isn't any roughness around the edges, like the Above The Tie razors, on the other hand the Rockwell is the workhorse, having said that the Rockwell proves the point that it doesn't have to look beautiful to work well.

Thanks very much for the help. It is extremely useful.
Might have to look into the R41 instead, as one of the reasons for me wanting to add another razor to my collection, was to have something more efficient at my disposal.

Thanks very much again, you have been extremely helpful :)

Absolutely, give it the respect it deserves and you won't look back..... also, I definitely prefer to use it with very sharp blades, I made the mistake to use it with a Derby blade once and it was horrible.

Just to update:

I've decided upon and just ordered the R41 Grande from @Agent Shave.

The price was an absolute bargain. Anywhere else I checked out were selling the R41 Grande for around £43.
I was able to get it from @Agent Shave for £29.70 (with the shaving room discount code). An absolute bargain at that price.

Thanks very much everyone, especially @Merkurologist, really appreciate all the help and advice.
