This Yates precision manufacturing extra high plate exceeded my expectations for it's being efficient and smooth at the same time. This razor may have taken a few others I have out of rotation. It's that good! Highly recommend if you want an efficient razor.
Shaving with the H and HE plates feels very comfortable and safe. I shave both face and head, and experience no irritation or discomfort. I am able to shave in two passes with these plates. As a head shaver, the back bottom corners behind the ears, where the skull curves in, is very prone to nicks, sometimes significant ones. Both plates handle that danger zone safely and comfortably. Stubble takes several more hours to appear after using the HE plate. I am amazed by how comfortable the HE feels during the shave.
Smooth and efficient, what more can one ask for. Seriously though, Jake makes great razors and sells them at a very reasonable price.
With only one shave and the usual multiple variables, too early for definitive report. I sense more blade feel (which I personally like) but easily controlled. Just glide the razor, nothing else is required.
I ordered the extra high aggressive plate, and man is it smooth and efficient. Never felt like I would cut myself either. I'm really digging YPM!
