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.


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.

    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.

    Gillette Fat Boy

    Posted by Billy Shave on 21st Jul 2019

    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 .

    I am extremely pleased. The plating is flawless. The razor looks as though it is brand new instead of being sixty years old.

    I just shaved with the Fatboy for the first time since switching from a cartridge razor, and it was amazing, so glad I choose this as my first DE. Excellent service from the Razor Emporium staff as well.

    I had been wanting a fatboy for a long time after hearing/reading all the amazing reviews it’s been given and I was not disappointed at all! They did such a great job on its restoration and the plating is flawless. Everything works like brand new and it gives me the best shave I’ve ever had! Satisfied is not enough to describe how i feel about my razor. Hats off to Razor Emporium.

    It’s Easy To Forget These Are Vintage

    Posted by Keen Bean on 16th Aug 2018

    On May 12, 2018, I purchased a Gillette Made to Order Fatboy. To my knowledge at the time of my order, Razor Emporium had Gillette Fatboy’s available and ready to ship that had completed the Revamp Service and been approved for sale. In spite of that, at my request Razor Emporium worked very hard to locate and revamp a razor of a specific date code. The razor I received on August 15, 2018, was as pristine and mechanically sound as I expected given reviews, and it has a preferential date code of my liking. I was hesitant to place an order, but I am glad I did. I received a free polishing cloth that I will make use of, and once the Revamp was complete the free shipping only took two days to arrive.

    Throughout the process, I received updates on the phase of the revamp service and a free shipping code I could use in advance of my Made To Order shipment for any item available on the website. I cannot deny that three months is a sizable amount of time, but had I not requested a certain date code I believe I would have had a razor delivered in two weeks or less.

    The Razor Emporium staff quickly responded to inquiries I sent them. I am almost certain the ready to ship Fatboy option will be available to potential customers into instant gratification. I don’t mind waiting a little longer. I mind that I get what I pay for. I feel I did. I also now have a place I can send razors that don’t meet my standard of cleanliness. If I were to offer any criticism, it would be that I did not receive a before picture of the razor. I would love to know what the razor looked like prior to the Revamp Service. It is certainly the idea of repairing something weathered and worn and restoring it to a like-new condition that attracted me to Razor Emporium. The fact that I didn’t get to see any before pictures feels like a missed opportunity. Nonetheless, the craftsmanship and attention to detail given to my razor appear beyond reproach.
