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.

On advice from Matt I chose to but this MTO razor and I cannot fault the workmanship in any way - just like buying a brand new razor. I am so pleased I found Razor Emporium on YouTube and decided to get advice a on a razor for me and it has turned out to be a totally pleasant outcome .
I would recommend Razor Emporium in a heartbeat to anyone if they are after first class service and products.
Once again thanks to Matt and his crew for the way that they handled my order.
I received what looked like a finely engineered jewellery piece in stunning Rhodium and the shave was fantasttic. Using Fine menthol soap and a 5 setting i engaged in a 3-pass shave and moved up to the 9 for the third and final pass. Incredibly smooth yet close shave - Kai blades nice. No cuts or nicks - Little more else to say.
This is a great razor for beginners or experienced wet shavers. It is milder than I expected which has turned out to make this a great daily shaver. Razor Emporium does a great job with the revamp too. It looks brand new!!
First vintage razor really like this
Although I have been a DE safety razor user for years, the Gillette Slim Adjustable took a short time to use it effectively. At first, I thought the turning lock mechanism didn't work that I tried to force it, not knowing that there isn't a clicking sound. In fact, one of the silo doors got pushed up off the hinge because of turning to hard. I was able to put the door back to its correct position. I don't have the door issue I stop the turn when the handle can't go any further. Now, I did get a nick or two because the razor is lighter than my other DE razors. However, after a few shaves at setting 6, it gives my a very nice shave. I shave every day or every other day so I don't see myself going to setting 9 unless I don't shave for week. I think the highest I will go is it. I am a head shaver and have used it, and I got a close shave with a nick or two, but I have another DE razor which does a better job for shaving my head. All in all, I am satisfied with face shaving with the Gillette Slim Adjustable, but will rarely use it when shaving my head. Maybe my assessment will change as I use my slim adjustable more frequently.
I ordered the Gillette Slim adjustable razor finished in Rhodium and it is fantastic! The communication from the Razor Emporium is great and I have no hesitation in using their services again.
This is an excellent razor, and well worth the price. These people know what they’re doing.
I am very happy with the overall finish of the Razor and can not fault the workmanship that went into this Razor. I stuck to the original factory finish which I like and once again this can not be faulted. I am using the razor daily and It is just down to finding the best setting to use.
Thank you Matt and Team great Razor
This is my fourth made to order razor from Razor Emporium. It arrived in perfect condition. Better than new! I chose the rhodium finish, once again. The razor operates and shaves flawlessly! The finish is beautiful! Matt and the team are the best in the business!
