WHY WAS OUR MADE TO ORDER SECTION CREATED?
We get questions frequently asking if a particular razor they are bidding on through Ebay would be a good candidate for a Revamp. It's impossible to guarantee our analysis is accurate without having the razor in our hands, so we created a solution! Forget the risk of buying online, paying shipping, shipping the razor to us, paying for service work, waiting an additional 4-6 weeks, only to receive the razor back and be disappointed because it wasn't a perfect candidate to begin with.
WHAT IS MADE TO ORDER?
Our 'Made to Order' service allows you to purchase razors that we have already inspected, vetted, and guarantee! Pick the razor model and precious metal of your choosing and your Revamped razor will be shipped in no more than 7-10 days!
If you have a preference in Date Codes we will do our best to secure them, however cannot guarantee the date code will be available. WE CANNOT FILL ANY "D" 1958 DATE CODES FOR FATBOYS.
Gillette $1.95 Fatboy TTO Adjustable Double Edge Safety Razor Revamp | Made to Order
This is my second “made to order” classic Gillette DE safety razor, and as always Razor Emporium does a perfect job. This 195 TTO adjustable, coded E-1, thus from the first trimester of 1959, 61 years old looks brand new! I have a few more razors in my wishlist on their site! Thanks to Matt and his team! Keep doing such an excellent work!
This is a well deserved shout out to the folks at Razor Emporium! I received my refurbished 1960 Gillette Fatboy, beautifully plated in rhodium, just in time for Christmas. (It was a Christmas present from my wife). The razor is gorgeous and took me back many decades. My late father shaved with a Fatboy for my entire childhood. As a wet shaving enthusiast, this is a miracle of craftsmanship (both in Gillette's design and Razor Emporium's attention to detailed restoration). On a personal note, it's a daily remembrance of my dear late father. Thank you Razor Emporium!
I couldn’t be happier wit this razor. Works perfectly, and the rhodium plating is beautiful.
This is the 2nd razor I've bought from Razor Emporium and both times I received the razor in perfect condition, probably better than it was in the drug store in 1961.
I love the razor, the adjustability has allowed me to dial in a setting that gives me a great shave every time.
Excellent refurbishment. Very fast work. Fantastic customer service, received regular email updates on razor progress at every stage.Including shipping.
Would gladly recommend their services.
The work on this vintage razor is magnificent and I could not be happier. Have used it once and received a fabulous shave. Love the Rhodium finish.
I purchased a revamped late model just for my collection and found it to be a excellent shaver . Even though it is now a restored show piece I use it and love it . It's hard to believe that the price New was only $ 1.98 back in the day . I'm sure my Dad balked at the price but bought one anyway and it lasted his lifetime . So I paid a 100 times more for mine revamped but think it's worth it and love it .
Flawless, beautiful restoration!!
I am extremely pleased. The plating is flawless. The razor looks as though it is brand new instead of being sixty years old.
