Finding a vintage razor online or at an antique store can be fun and an economical way to try out some of the classic performing models. However what do you do with the pitts, rust, worn plating and broken components that sometimes come with it? We designed our Revamp Service to address all of these issues and deliver to you a vintage razor that looks and functions like it just left the factory floor!
With thousands of razors successfully revamped, we have a fairly good idea of what is achievable from this process. The best results come from razors made of brass or stainless steel. This includes nearly every razor from Gillette. Unfortunately we are unable to plate the following in any capacity:
Most surface scratches, dings and dents can be either minimized or removed all together through our surface restoration, however deep pitting or other serious metal imperfections can't be removed! These areas will leave texture underneath the plating, and still be visible.We take into consideration the integrity of the metal before aesthetics and sometimes corrosion, pitting or dents are just too deep to safely be removed on parts of the razor. Know that we will do our best to make your razor sparkle and shine, but are limited by what we receive from you.
If your razor does not meet the Mirror Finish Revamp standards due to serious corrosion or pitting, you will be contacted before work begins, order changed to Factory Finish, and refunded the difference. If you would prefer a full refund we can issue one minus the cost of return shipping.
We promise to deliver to you a "Shave Ready" razor that has been polished, adjusted, plated, painted, sanitized and lubricated. We guarantee our work for 6 months from the date we ship it back to you, giving you the confidence to enjoy using a quality vintage razor! Please CONTACT US with any other questions!

Sent my grandads 1956 red tip Superspeed for the revamp service, Rhodium finish. Wow, amazed at the difference, better than brand new. Kept up to date throughout and quick service.

I have had Razor Emporium Revamp-Restore two Gillette Safety Razor's that belonged to my deceased father-in-law. Both came back quick and were absolutely gorgeous when they were returned to me. I could not be happier.

I sent in a D3 Gillette Super Speed for revamp. Was expecting it back around 2nd week of December. Got it back by end of October! The website keeps you updated on the progress of the work, as do the emails. I received the razor back and it looks so fantastic I am hesitant to use it! Also included was a polishing cloth and the warranty card.
Any shave enthusiast owes it to themselves to purchase a classic razor online or in an antique store and then sending it to Matt for revamp. YOU WILL THANK YOURSELF LATER!!

Sent in my 1958 Gillette Fatboy chrome DE Safety Razor to Razor Emporium for the tune up and revamp in Rhodium with the polished mirror finish.
It came back to me with every component completely tuned up and overhauled internally and externally in brand new excellent working condition.
From the doors and the blade gaps, to the TTO knob and the adjustable 1-9 dial, the numbers and the black band around the handle repainted and baked on, everything was perfection and made shave ready as I requested.
The polished Rhodium refinishing was absolutely amazing, and my 59 year old razor was restored to an outstandingly pristine work of art.
It now looks as if it were purchased today right off the shelf.
It shaves like the precision instrument that it is.
I am completely satisfied with the work that Razor Emporium put into a cherished possession of mine, and I am confident that if there had been any issues, that they would have been addressed and corrected.
I have done business with Razor Emporium in the past, and I would not hesitate to continue to deal with Razor Emporium.
5 star rating. *****

This razor was not in terrible shape, but the head was down to the bare metal. Razor Emporium cleaned and replated the razor in 24K gold.
Spectacular job, very pleased, could not be happier! Looks brand new!
Thank you Razor Emporium!!!

The three razors arrived yesterday. Of course, I waited to open the box as it needed to be a special event.
The return packaging was excellent. The detail of care showed in the presentation of the units in the box. To my elation, the finish of the razors was brilliant.
As this turns into a fun hobby of mine, I intend on sending other razors in for rehab work.
Considering the condition of the Fatboy sent in, the turn around time was very reasonable. As mentioned above, one cannot rush something that has a special meaning.
i am waiting to shave with the Fatboy. These were gifts and I wanted to show the reconditioned versions off a bit before soiling them with shaving cream!

Worth every penny. Outstanding workmanship and service. I will be sending in SlimBoy for revamp soon. Thanks Matt for your service.

The job took a little longer then the website suggests. I did get a call from Matt apologizing and explaining the delay. That was very nice.
The Razor? Perfect.
