This baseplate is only compatible with the Yates Precision Model 921 Safety Razor.

I had the great pleasure to buy this razor and I am impressed. The build quality is fantastic and every detail has not been overlooked. The razor reminds of damascus steel so getting this razor in stonewashed was an excellent choice. On to the shave. I purchased the H plate because I prefer some aggressiveness while shaving. The combination of blade gap and blade exposure is done to perfection. Two passes to BBS with ease. What a great experience and I get to do it everyday.
Thank you for the kind words!
If you like efficient razors this H plate steps it up with just minimal blade feel but an extremely efficient BBS shave. This H plate competes with any of the high gap artisan razors available at a very affordable price point. I like my shaves close and this Yates is the real deal. You won't be sorry.
Thank you, Joe!
Increased blade gap? Positive blade exposure? More aggressive shave? I know what you’re thinking... “Danger! DANGER!” Don’t be scared, all is well with the H plate! I have all 3 plates currently available, and the H plate is my new go-to plate for average shaving that’s not heavily over grown, I’ll swap to the HYB plate for that. The H plate seems more clog resistant with its increased blade gap, and glides smoothly across the skin. Welcome to the “Danger Zone,” I think you’ll like it here. I certainly do.
Thank you Jason!
Yates Precision makes an amazing razor at a fantastic price. The “M” plate is efficient and smooth but the “H” plate bumps that efficiency up a notch or two while keeping the same smoothness. Not only does this razor provide me with a BBS shave, it is also a fantastic dome shaver as well. No nicks, cuts, or irritation (and for the most part, I still have a head full of hair). The owners are very attentive to requests and I can’t wait to see what else they turn out of the shop!
Thanks, Stephen! We really appreciate the positive feedback. Glad to hear the -H is a good head shaver!
If you like to have some blade feel and prefer a more aggressive razor that will give a great shave, this baseplate is for you. I normally shave daily but with this plate I can skip a day. Great job!
Thank you Mark! And as always, thank you for your support.
