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.

I've had my gold Aristocrat for about 60 days now, and it was put right into my rotation. That means I've shaved with it somewhere between 15 to 20 times.
From shave #1 thru this morning's I have been pleasantly surprised that a piece of 65+ year old equipment could function so flawlessly! I get a great shave with no irritation every time.
I highly recommend both this razor and Razor Emporium, both are great!
