Tune-Up Service

$29.00

Description

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

  1. Excellent Service 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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.

  2. Breathe new life into an old razor without breaking the bank 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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.

  3. Very Nice Results 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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!!

  4. Better than I take care of myself 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Oct 2018

    This is a fabulous service. Razor Emporium treated my ailing Aristocrat and Sheraton razors like they were heirlooms. There may be cheaper solutions out there (although not significantly from my experience), but there is no better. If you want the best for your razors, send them to RE.

  5. Old School Razor restored to like new 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Aug 2018

    I recently acquired a 1974 Gillette Super-109 Adjustable DE Razor on the secondary market, it was in fair shape but I found it had a bent guard and was in need of cleaning, polishing and a good tuning up.
    I had never used a service like this before, but had seen a few videos on the matter. I decided to try out the "Tune-up".
    I called beforehand and spoke to a nice woman who went over the process with me, I then sent in the razor.
    It took about 7 -8 business days and what I got back was a beautifully restored, clean, functional and shave-ready razor.
    I was very pleased with the Razor Emporiums work and their excellent Customer Service.
    In this day and age it seems a rarity to find all this, I was very impressed by all the people at Razor Emporium and the work done on my vintage razor.
    I now have a razor that will probably last another 30+ years.
    I'll be sending in another razor for work.

    Thank You Matt P. and the Great staff at Razor Emporium.

  6. Like new..again 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2018

    The folks as R.E. did a great job tuning up my Gillette Razor. Came back working great, cleaned and ready to go. Their communication was great at each step. Will use their services again and again.

  7. Brought back the beauty of my black beauty 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2018

    Great work brought back the shine on the head of the razor and fix the adjuster. Great communication. Thank you

  8. Fixed it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jun 2018

    Had a Senator with a TTO issue. The crew at Razor Emporium did a wonderful job of fixing that issue as well as shining up the whole razor. Very happy with the results!

  9. A Little Disappointed 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2018

    I sent in my 1968 Slim, already in excellent cosmetic condition, for a tune-up with a note that the TTO knob was stiff for the final 1/2 turn. It came back to me looking good but the TTO knob is exactly the same as it was. Maybe this couldn't be fixed?

  10. Fatboy Tune up 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2018

    I was very pleased with the tune up on my vintage Fatboy razor. It shaves like new! The only negative is the time required to accomplish the tune up. Thank you. Ken S.
