    Revamp brush and replace the knot

    Posted by Wayne E. Owen on 5th Oct 2019

    I sent a comment previously stating I was extremely pleased with the work. It was a brush my father-in-law purchased for me over 40 years ago. It had sentimental value and was obviously a quality brush. You brought it back to look like it did when I received it over 40 years ago. You did a superb job. Thank you very much.

    I sent in an old Rubberset 400-3 aluminum handle. It was already in okay condition, free from gouges or major scratches, but the horse hair was dead and the metal was dull and worn. The folks at Razor Emporium polished and buffed the metal to a high shine, restoring its former glory, and installed a new silver tip knot. It is now one of my absolutely favorite brushes. Truly stunning. Thank you, Razor Emporium!

    Very pleased with the job done to revamp my dad’s old boar brush. The handle was scratched quite a bit and hair was in bad shape. Now the brush is very useable and the handle looks almost new. It will work nicely in my rotation. I’m sue that Dad will be impressed as well.

    Razor Emporium keeps getting better

    Posted by steven toushin on 30th Jun 2017

    I have been sending razors, brushes to RE for the last 4 years and I have to say their restoration and re-plating service, their brush repair service and customer care has continually gotten better.

    I had a razor Blackbird that I wanted to modify, after a few email and phone communications the work was started. I received the razor back one week later. The modification was perfect I could not be any happier.

    Currently I just sent in a vintage brush for a little restoration, they cleaned it up in-which I received it back in 12 days from sending it to them and receiving it back. Again I could not be ant happier.

    Good service and product, but just a bit more communication.

    Posted by John Sterritt on 5th Feb 2017

    I 'm quite pleased with the replacement of the deteriorated knot on the brass-handled shaving brush, but wish that the Emporium had replied to my requests for information. I included my phone number with my questions, but didn't hear anything back. Here are three of the concerns:
    "I'll need some information about badger knots so that I can make an appropriate selection..." No reply.
    "If you can add any information or.. correct my assumptions (about the origin of the brass handled brush)..." No reply.
    "I trust that a badger knot will outlast the 4 or 5 boar bristle brushes I've bought over the years at CVS." No reply. I hope that's right, because I paid a lot more than I ever had before.
    I would have welcomed even an "We don't know." So sending the handle to the Emporium was a act of faith.

    I purchased the brush revamp service for $58 NOT INCLUDING THE KNOTS. Now, I didn't mind paying the extra money for the knots. However my issue is the replacement knots I received in my brushes, we're not the same ones depicted in the pictures by whomever razor emporium sources them from. I have considered sending them back for a replacement, but at this point it's too much of a hassle and don't feel like incurring additional shipping costs.
