Although I have been a DE safety razor user for years, the Gillette Slim Adjustable took a short time to use it effectively. At first, I thought the turning lock mechanism didn't work that I tried to force it, not knowing that there isn't a clicking sound. In fact, one of the silo doors got pushed up off the hinge because of turning to hard. I was able to put the door back to its correct position. I don't have the door issue I stop the turn when the handle can't go any further. Now, I did get a nick or two because the razor is lighter than my other DE razors. However, after a few shaves at setting 6, it gives my a very nice shave. I shave every day or every other day so I don't see myself going to setting 9 unless I don't shave for week. I think the highest I will go is it. I am a head shaver and have used it, and I got a close shave with a nick or two, but I have another DE razor which does a better job for shaving my head. All in all, I am satisfied with face shaving with the Gillette Slim Adjustable, but will rarely use it when shaving my head. Maybe my assessment will change as I use my slim adjustable more frequently.

I ordered the Gillette Slim adjustable razor finished in Rhodium and it is fantastic! The communication from the Razor Emporium is great and I have no hesitation in using their services again.

This is an excellent razor, and well worth the price. These people know what they’re doing.

I am very happy with the overall finish of the Razor and can not fault the workmanship that went into this Razor. I stuck to the original factory finish which I like and once again this can not be faulted. I am using the razor daily and It is just down to finding the best setting to use.
Thank you Matt and Team great Razor

This is my fourth made to order razor from Razor Emporium. It arrived in perfect condition. Better than new! I chose the rhodium finish, once again. The razor operates and shaves flawlessly! The finish is beautiful! Matt and the team are the best in the business!

What have you done? I am over 30 yo, but after I had shaved with this smooth beauty, 5 shops in the neighbourhood refused to sell me beer, as they thought I was under 18...

I ordered a Slim as a birthday gift for my father. Being the razor is a almost 10 years older than me I questioned how nice it could be. I've looked at it pretty closely, even got out reading glasses (don't laugh it'll happen to you too) and honestly the thing looks virtually perfect, and with the Rhodium plating it's better than Gillette ever did. While I haven't shaved with it I can still honestly endorse the Revamp Service 100%.
If you want an older razor you can get it all done here if you have one and want it fixed up send it in. Either way rest assured it'll be really nice when you get it.

I received my made to order slim adjustable within 4 weeks w/ correct requested date code. The revamp job was outstanding - excellent mechanical condition and wonderful cosmetic refurbish job. Would order again any time. Thanks.

I ordered my Slim Adjustable with the 24K gold plating. It arrived in prefect condition. In this case, "perfect" is not relative. There were no observable flaws in the finish, and no mars or faults with the underlying razor, even though it dated from the 1960s. The depth and finish of the gold plate was superb, and I can't imagine that these razors looked any better coming brand-new from the factory.
Function of all the moving parts was smooth and tight. The blade gap was spot on. Upon shaving with this razor, it performed in an ideal manner, giving me a great shave.
I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase.
