    Couldn't find a thread for this company and their AMAZING razor. They are working to get stock back on the shelves. All manufactured by themselves in the USA. If yiu can get one, you owe it to yourself to try it out !

    Razor: Yates 921-H
    Blade: Wizamet (5)
    Brush: Techichi The Hive
    Soap: T&S Sicily 1508.5
    AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
    AS 2: T&S Sicily
    Fragrance: Amouage Sunshine Man

    Man it's been a long time since using the 921-H Plate and it reminded me that this is one of my favorites that will never.........that's right NEVER leave the Den. That's saying something in Dave's Ever Revolving Den. I paired it with a Nodachi Handle. Not all handles fit due to the design of the bottom of the base plate which is my only complaint. Smooth as can be but as efficient as all get out. Truly one of my best shavers. The Hive brush by Don is a monster that feels so good in the hand and this knot just seems so much better than your standard Tuxedo. Not sure why, but it whips a great lather. Had plenty to do a 3-4 pass shave on the face and to shave the neck as well which was overdue to separate the hair from the head from the hair on the back. Hitting it with Sunshine Man that I BLAME............I mean THANK Eric (Smattayu) for enabling me with a sample some time ago. It caused it to be an instant on "The Buy" list when I had the funds. It ain't cheap but everything from Amouage that I'v sampled is STRONG and you need to go easy on how many squirts. I'll be THAT GUY today for sure. Take care and enjoy your weekend !!

    The Yates really is a fantastic razor. I’ve settled into the H plate. Jake is really great to communicate with is very responsive. I bought one in the fall of 2019 on a whim, and just because it was manufactured in PA (my state of origin). I’m really glad I did.
