Model 921-HYB Hybrid Baseplate, Brass
The Model 921-HYB baseplate combines the best of both worlds. The open-comb side provides aggressive, clog-free shaving for quickly tackling longer hair, while the traditional scalloped, closed-comb side provides a close finishing pass. This baseplate is only compatible with the Yates Precision Model 921 Safety Razor.
Engraving: Individually Serialized
Blade Gap: .025" (.64mm)
Note: Brass oxidizes over time, forming a "Patina". This is normal and should be expected.
Having an OC plate is great. The shave is not (to me) markedly different between the two sides but I always enjoy flipping back and forth between the two, just to make the shave a bit more enjoyable.
I started with the aggressive H plate, but also wanted something a bit more mild for daily shaving. The Hybrid plate delivered exactly that. It's extremely smooth yet gives me a perfect shave every time. I also like the contrasting brass appearance and added versatility of the dual plate.
Very nice design and finish on this baseplate. Gives the option for multiple shaving strategies.
Well made and nice addition to my razor and stand.
Thank you Michael!
I've fallen in love with the stock Model 921 (plate M) so I couldn't resist getting my hands on the Hybrid plate. Fit and finish are impeccable and the open comb bring a peculiar feel to compliment the familiar safety bar. Can't wait for plate H!
Thank you for the support and the great review!
