WHY WAS OUR MADE TO ORDER SECTION CREATED?

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.

WHAT IS MADE TO ORDER?

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.

  1. Awesome Red Tip Revamp Razor 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Nov 2017

    Wow! Razoremporium knocked it out of the park! Finish and performance are perfect - just like the day it left the factory in 1955. Even the paint on the red tip was repaired, with an updated durable paint! Just love it. Used the made to order service, so it was no hassle and I knew the finished product would be mint. Communication was excellent through the entire 3 week process, and I received my razor on time as promised. I would recommend Razoremprium to anyone. I was purchase more razors from razor emporium in the future. It saves time over hunting on ebay, and pricing is competitive.

  2. Factory Fresh 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Aug 2017

    My Red Tip looks just like it did back in '56. I purchased a revamped and replated model with nickle finish. It shaves perfectly, runs smooth, and could easily have come straight out of the box. One caveat - I usually clean my razors by soaking them in alcohol after the shave. I wouldn't recommend this with one of the painted "tip" razors, as it appears that it might have a negative reaction with the paint. The ablation didn't harm the finish on this first time out, but constant contact with something other than soapy water might be a bad idea.

  4. I'm stunnned! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2016

    The made to order service is incredible! The razor I received is virtually flawless and looks like it could have come off a production line yesterday, not 60 years ago. Once they started the revamp process I received a couple of update emails which was really nice! I chose the rhodium finish and am very pleased with my choice. Razor Emporium does outstanding work and when I decide to get my fatboy, this is where I will come, no question! Thanks
