    It's been a year or so since the new wave of enthusiasm over Yates Precision Engineering 921 Razor occurred. Here and elsewhere, the razor was generally acclaimed as a very efficient tool, liked by many shavers.

    I'm interested to know whether or not this razor has continued to please its users now that the "honeymoon" has ended. If not, why not? What has supplanted it in your razor arsenal? What blades worked best, or worst, with the 921?

    Thanks for responding! Shave on!

    This is a great question!
    I was not a member here when you asked it so I am curious about other's experience.
    I am still in the honeymoon phase as I just received my 921 two days ago (with the M, H, and EH plates).

    Yes, I'm a bit surprised that there have been no comments. Was also hoping that there might be some comparisons with other modern, mild razors, e.g. Blackbird, ASD2 and Drakkant.

    The Blackbird is not a mild razor. Smooth and efficient, yes, but I don't think it's at all mild. It and the ASD2 are at opposite ends of the spectrum.
