Straight Razor Restoration & Honing

SKU: Restoration

Description

Have a straight razor that needs polishing, sharpening, or maybe new handles made?

WHAT WE DO

Our Straight Razor Restoration Service is the perfect solution for daily shavers and heirloom razors alike. Whether you want a shave-ready straight razor or museum quality keepsafe, we are committed to preserving history and helping you get the most from your wet shave experience.

 

HOW IT WORKS

  • Each razor is assessed for its specific needs. To safely remove afflicted metal during polishing, our team uses specialized compounds and rouges. Our experienced staff, safely maintain the integrity of your steel while buffing and polishing your razor and scales to look their best. This process removes pitting, rust, patina and damage, leaving the metal clean and hygenic.
  • We work to restore and preserve the original handles (scales) and will polish them to look their best. However, scales that have been contributing to rusting the blade are now removed and replaced with handcrafted custom scales designed by you if need be. Our website makes ordering custom scales easy by standardizing shapes, materials, and cost. Just select your options above and get a preview of what your straight razor will look like.
  • For that close shave, razors now move on to the sharpening process wherein our in-house Hone-Meister Eric takes them through an individualized stone progression. With an easel of over 12 stones to choose from; natural to synthetic, coticule to Chosera, exotic Japanese stones like Naniwa to tried and true performers like Norton, we have everything needed to give you the keenest edge you’ve ever experienced.

 

WHY IT MATTERS

Our Straight Razor Restoration Service was created with two purposes in mind: the everyday shaver that wants clean steel, beautiful custom scales, and the sharpest shaving edge; as well as the family heirloom straight razor, ready to be passed down to future generations, perfectly preserved in museum quality condition.

 

POLISHING BREAKDOWN

We offer two different polishing options so your razor can return home exactly how you intend!

Polish: light metal removal using polishing wheels only. Removes active rust, minor imperfections in blade like honing scratches, restores shine.

Re-Grind and Polish: Each razor must be individually evaluated. Regrind and Polish removes a good amount of metal through grinding wheels. Good for razors in really bad shape. Removes as many imperfections as possible without changing the razors over all shape. Note, any etchings on the blade face will not survive a regrind.

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  2. Download and fill out the Revamp Service form that will be included in your emailed invoice.
  3. Send in your razor however you choose - USPS Small Flat Rate box is our recommendation. 
  4. We'll let you know when we receive your razor and keep you updated during the process. 
  5. Our turn-around time is 7-10 days once we receive your razor.

    You ruinded my Double Duck

    I sent my favorite straight razor, a Double Duck, to get it refurbished and paid good money. I expected it to be shave ready when it was returned. It was so dull that it pulled my hair I had to stop and use a different razor to finish my shave. I cut myself twice with it. The end of it was sharpened to a point, which should have been rounded. The handle was not the original handle was not on the razor but a clear yellowish handle. I am very disappointed. Who ever did my razor needs to be fired so he/she doesn't mess up someone else's antique straight razor.
