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.

    I ordered this MTO razor in the gold plating. It turned out wonderful. I love the way this razor shaves. I will adding an adjustable one to my collection soon.

    Made to order process is elite. Received my razor on time as promised, with excellent communication all during the process. Razor turned out perfect, and the rhodium highlights all the knurling details. Just beautiful! Don't hesitate if you are considering obtains a vintage razor from razor emporium revamp service - its first class and you'll love the finished product. Highly recommend. Plan to purchase more razors from razor emporium in the future!

    Great shave, first time out of the box

    Posted by William Tubb on 15th Apr 2017

    I've had my gold Aristocrat for about 60 days now, and it was put right into my rotation. That means I've shaved with it somewhere between 15 to 20 times.

    From shave #1 thru this morning's I have been pleasantly surprised that a piece of 65+ year old equipment could function so flawlessly! I get a great shave with no irritation every time.

    I highly recommend both this razor and Razor Emporium, both are great!
