Have a razor that needs to be cleaned, polished and adjusted? Tune it up!

What We Do

Vintage safety razors pack some of the most bang for the buck, but knowing if they are fully functional, hygienic and shave-ready is a different story. Starting at $29, we offer a professional restoration that helps bring your old-school razor back to its glory days. 

*Please Note: Specialty razors include Bottom Dial Fatboy, Red Dot Fatboy, and Toggle Safety Razors.

How it Works

  1. We first clean your razor in our industrial ultrasonic machine to remove any soap scum, mineral deposits and grime. Disassembly is carried out for the best results whenever possible. 
  2. Next we carefully polish the inside and out of your razor, bringing the vintage metal up to a high luster. 
  3. Mechanical adjustments are made to ensure the best functionality of your razor.
  4. We carry out any painting that is needed - numbers on adjusters, tips on super speeds and black handles. We use color-matched powder coating that exactly replicates the original factory colors and process. 
  5. Razors are again cleaned and sanitized before being lubricated and mailed back home. We include a free Polishing Cloth that will safely keep the shine on your vintage find!

Why It Matters

Professionally servicing means you'll get the best shaves possible knowing that your razor is functioning as it was designed to. Eliminate common problems that affect shaving performance such as:

  • Bent guards
  • Uneven blade gap
  • Frozen adjusters
  • Loose handles
  • Jammed doors
  • Twist To Open issues
  • Broken Clicker Spring (if you have an adjustable and it doesn't click anymore select the above option) 



  1. "Add to Cart" this service, check-out and make payment.
  2. You will purchase Shipping during checkout, this is how we will return your razor after completion.
  3. You will receive an Order Confirmation E-mail within an hour of purchase. Click the red hyper link that says Service Check In and follow the directions. Include this bar-code scan form when shipping your razor.
  4. Send in your razor however you choose - USPS Small Flat Rate box is our recommendation. The postage you have purchased already is for return shipping.
  5. We'll let you know when we receive your razor and keep you updated during the process. 
  6. Our turn-around time is 3-5 business days once we receive your razor. 


Our Guarantee

We promise to deliver to you a "Shave Ready" razor that has been polished, adjusted, sanitized and lubricated. We guarantee our work for 30 days 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!

    Looks brand NEW!

    Posted by Ryan May on 28th May 2019

    I was an idiot and thought I would restore the clarity of my 1963 Gillette Slim Adjustable case by using a Headlight repair kit (Wipe New). Well that was a horrible idea..and clouded it up to where you could no longer see inside.

    After teasing me a little, Matt and Razor Emporium educated me on the types of plastic and what works best. Anyway my case came back, from the repair service, looking brand new. Thank you Matt and Razor Emporium for fixing my mistake!!

    Razors Reborn

    Posted by Philip Kent Salitros on 2nd May 2019

    Just had my early 60's Fat Boy reworked. Sent it in for a tune-up and was advised it had brassing and upgraded to a re-plate. Very pleased with results. Great customer service. Had a 1940's Superspeed re-plated last year and it was great also.

    Razor tune up

    Posted by Ali Kia on 17th Apr 2019

    I reached out to Matt at Razor Emporium after purchasing 3 vintage razors (Rolls Razor, 1974 Gillette Super Speed, and Gem). I sent these in for tune ups. I received all 3 shave-ready with great turn around time and very reasonable price! Thank you Razor Emporium!

    Excellent Service

    Posted by Buddy Woodward on 8th Mar 2019

    This was one of several razors I've sent into RE for tune up service over the last year or so. I keep coming back because Matt and his team are excellent craftsmen and customer service reps. The work is expert, and they really go the extra mile.

    Breathe new life into an old razor without breaking the bank

    Posted by Mike Nicoletti on 7th Feb 2019

    I've had more than one razor tune up by Razor Emporium and every time I've been impressed with the results. Razor Emporium disassembles, thoroughly cleans, reassembles, and adjusts the razor bringing it roughly to factory spec. I would imagine that any old, scummy, bent, squeaky, or stuck razor would benefit from the tune up service. The tune up doesn't do anything for plating so if there's severe damage to and loss of plating, their tune up won't fix that. For that they have a replating service (revamp). But for a general refresh for razors that aren't severely damaged, the tune up service is great.

    Very Nice Results

    Posted by Herb on 28th Jan 2019

    First time using the Tune-Up service. Sent in my Gillette Fatboy G1 for a tune-up (adjustment tray was stuck, tto wouldn't lock down, numbers faded, desperate need of cleaning). Good communication, back and forth. (Declined the replating recommendation, although my razor could definitely use it; planning to do that in the future). Just got it back; the razor works excellent and looks very nice!! Thank you, RE, very nice results!!
