    Eventually you will find a blade that works well in every DE you have, at least I did.

    Of course if you want the easy way out you can buy a razor like the Rockwells which just take their blades or the Mongoose SE which takes just two possible blades.

    But that also takes the fun out of all this.

    I have a Rockwell 6c and use Gillette Silver Blues in it so I don't know about them taking only Rockwell blades.

    I use a DE on occasion, a Henckels Henso and an Aristocrat. I really like the blue Israeli Personnas. I get lots of good shaves from those.
    Feathers seem to go from too sharp to dull quickly. I have some others. Some day I will try them all to see.

    I have the same Rockwell razor and use plate 6, because my beard is pretty coarse. I have only recently discovered the Gillette Silver Blues after using mostly Wilkinson and Voskhod. I am beginning to really like the Gillette blades.

    Some folks rave about the Feathers, but I didn’t find them particularly durable. I have also tried Derby and Astra without much satisfaction.

    I guess it's the new Rockwell Fatboy Clone that takes only their blades as I understand it.

    That is quite possible and I'd say they shot themselves in the foot if that is the case. That is just me though.
