  • Ships Worldwide

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 as it has superior corrosion resistance, which makes it very suitable for the bathroom environment.

 Advantages of the Model 921 Safety Razor:

  • Machined entirely on CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) equipment, ensuring accuracy and consistency.
  • High quality 316 Stainless Steel Safety Razor
  • Unlike some of the competitors, the tabs of the blade do not protrude from the razor which makes the changing of blades safer and more comfortable.
  • Each baseplate features a machine engraved Serial Number, ensuring that your razor is unique to you. 
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty- If anything happens to your safety razor due to manufacturing defects, send it back and we'll be happy to replace it. 
  • Packaged with reusable material.


  • Stonewashed-Robust, and is great at hiding any scratches that may occur over the life of the razor.
  • Bead Blast-uniform, satin finish. Some tool marks may remain present.
  • As-machined- raw, machined and vibratory tumbled finish. All tool marks will be visible.

        I have tried many different brands of safety razors and different styles. This razor is absolutely what I have been looking for!

        Never again shall a multi blade razor rip hairs off of my face. The YPM 921-M safety razor is an absolute must have for every guy. The quality and attention to detail of this razor set it apart from the competition. The finish is uniform, the machining is incredibly clean and the design is honed to perfection. No joke I handled every piece for over 10 minutes just admiring the craftsmanship that’s put into this Safety Razor. Definitely a different shaving experience than a 5 blade but I throughly enjoy every shave and will never go back! Keep up the quality work!

        I have been able to achieve one of the best shaves of my life with the EH plate. Very smooth and efficient. Paired with a Feather blade it gives a BBS shave. Very smooth razor and great baseplate. Highly recommended.

        recently purchased the Yates 921 with the new EH plate and it has been incredible. The shaves don't get any better. Build quality has to be the hallmark of this company as the razor has absolutely zero flaws. This particular razor came with the new mahine finish which I highly recomment as it is beautiful.

        I've gotten use to it.

        I use to use double edge razors about 30 years ago. It took at least 3 shaves for me to get used to it. I really like it now. Thanks. Jim Reed

        What a razor!

        I went from using a Merkur 34C HD which was a nice razor. The things that made me like the 921-M more is the longer handle, and the head design. With the longer handle I feel that I am able to manipulate the razor better for the contours of my face. With the lower/flatter head profile getting the right angle of the blade to my skin was much easier, and yielded much better results. Lastly, the texture of the stonewashed stainless steel provides a nice trip texture without being too aggressive. Overall I am beyond happy to have purchased this razor. So much so, I bought the same exact razor for my friend for Father's Day.

        Yates model 921

        What a superb razor, very smooth yet efficient. It easily deals with 2 or 3 days growth on the medium plate and the High plate mows down longer stubble. I have many high quality razors and this is the best I’ve used. My good lady says it’s the best razor she’s ever used for her legs as well.
