We get questions frequently asking if a particular razor they are bidding on through Ebay would be a good candidate for a Revamp. It's impossible to guarantee our analysis is accurate without having the razor in our hands, so we created a solution! Forget the risk of buying online, paying shipping, shipping the razor to us, paying for service work, waiting an additional 4-6 weeks, only to receive the razor back and be disappointed because it wasn't a perfect candidate to begin with.
Our 'Made to Order' service allows you to purchase razors that we have already inspected, vetted, and guarantee! Pick the razor model and precious metal of your choosing and your Revamped razor will be shipped in no more than 2-3 weeks!
If you have a preference in Date Codes we will do our best to secure them, however cannot guarantee the date code will be available.

Bought my second Fat Boy from Razor Emporium. This one in Gold. What a beauty! Handles great as all Fat Boys do. Perfect weight balance and the option to select blade closeness makes it a must. Only one complaint: The red paint on the numbers indicator hardly shows!

Awesome, Impeccable rebuild of a razor that was made 58 years ago!! It looks and functions better than brand new. The rhodium finish is a perfect addition to an otherwise top shelf product. Thank you for an incredible job....worth every penny!!!

I received my made to order rhodium Gillette fatboy today and I am immensely impressed!!
I have to keep in mind that it was made in 1960 because it looks and operates like it was made only last week.
There is not 1 scratch on it and all the letters are perfectly re painted.
And possibly the most important aspect is that extra quarter turn when locking in the razor blade.
First class craftsmanship and everyone at Razor Emporium should be very proud of their work!!

Razor Emporium did a great job in finding and restoring a Gillette Fatboy that was made the same quarter that I was born. I remember my dad using one and this is a fine restoration. It works perfectly and the finish is bright and excellent. If you have an old razor you want to use again or looking for that retro look, this is the place. Very happy camper.

Imagine using a razor as old as you are that is just like the day that it was made! Shaving is now more of an event than a chore and this razor makes it such a pleasure. There is obvious attention to detail and the final product is just amazing. Thank you Matt.

I couldn't be more pleased with my revamped Fatboy. I got the rhodium plating, and it came to me looking just about factory perfect. Because it comes from '59, there are a few tiny mars in the knurling (plating won't fix that). The razor works perfectly in all functional aspects. The blade alignment is spot-on, and it shaves great. The plating is super bright and even. It's beautiful. Worth every penny.

The razor that they picked didn't have any gouges or deep scrapes so the final result was flawless. All the mechanics were working perfectly, even the audible click from the little red catch when the adjuster dial is turned so the spring is intact too. The rhodium plating was just beautiful and it truly is a mirror finish. Over all I feel like it is in better condition than the day it was manufactured 57 years ago. I cannot think of one thing about the razor I would want to change. Very satisfied.

Ordered June 6th, received June 30th. Not to shabby considering the process. What I got is one bad-ass 60 year old Gillette FatBoy in Rhodium finish in spectacular condition. Anyone that says Rhodium isn't a mirror finish is wrong. This razor is shiny and flawless in every way. BTW it's an aggressive shave at any setting so watch your self. Now it's a matter of pairing it with the right blade. Used Personna for first outa box shave. Got a near BBS shave. Given a little practice it will only get better.
