Model 921-M Double Edge Safety Razor with Mid-Level Plate, Stonewashed
The 921 safety razor is precision machined in the United States from 316 stainless steel bar stock. This ensures consistently tight tolerances, and results in a much higher quality razor than the traditional casting or metal injection molding processes. 316 Stainless is commonly used in the medical and marine industries due to its superior corrosion resistance, which makes it very suitable for the bathroom environment.

- Machined entirely on CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) equipment, ensuring accuracy and consistency.

- Limited Lifetime Warranty- If anything happens to your razor due to manufacturing defects, send it back and we'll be happy to replace it.
- Packaged with Eco-Friendly material.

I do like this razor. The look of it is unique, and the stonewashed finish gives it a rugged feel. The shave you get is smooth, irritation-free, and efficient. The weight of the razor is decent as well. I guess I don't like the handle very much. It's too long for me. I generally prefer a handle anywhere from 3 inches to 3.5 inches (3.25 is the sweet spot for me). Also, the handle is too skinny. I much prefer a handle with more girth as it makes it easier to hold. I suppose the good news is there is a Yates handle for sale that more closely meets my needs. I would prefer it if Yates would give the customer a choice of handles before placing the razor in your cart. Just a suggestion. Otherwise, it's a worthwhile purchase.
This is not my first time ordering the 921-M. I love this razor and have been using it for over a year now. I've tried a few more razors but none could top the efficiency and comfort of the 921-M for me. It just works. It's care-free comfort, no need to watch the angle, and plenty efficient to give me BBS shaves. The Stonewashed finish is great. I had no other razor that looks as cool as the Yates. It's super-practical and doesn't gather prints or blade packaging glue residue. Also don't need to be afraid of tea-staining from water leftovers. The thin handle feels elegant and highly maneuverable. The moment I got it I thought I'd want a thicker handle, but it grew on me so I traded the thicker version. This handle works best for the razor for me. Overall a gem of a razor and I give it my highest praises and recommendations.
Let me start by saying that despite today's hectic world and the rush we live in, this razor deserves a moment to appreciate it and wright down few wonderful words about. this is hands down the best safety razor not only in the state but perhaps in the world. I am new to the wet shaving but I am lucky enough to have tried the most expensive ones, and most of them will not even get close to how smooth this razor is. from the finishing to the performance are simply the best. the customer service is incredible and I appreciate its a family business. I look forward to seeing this company always successful. I am a customer for life.
After using the razor for a couple weeks it's become one of, if not my favorite razor to use. I thought I would need the H plate as I tend to lean towards more aggressive razors but this Mid-Level gives me such a great shave that i'm not sure I even need it. I initially had worries that I would dislike the longer handle but I even love that! The ONLY regret I have is that I wish I would have purchased the polished version instead. The Yates has already earned a spot at the very top of my rotation and I don't see it going anywhere anytime soon.
The Yates razor is a better razor than models costing 3 times as much. Smooth, well-balanced and beautiful. It's a great piece of equipment.
