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, 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 2-3 weeks!
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.
