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.

    Honing/restoration

    Posted by My treasure on 28th Jan 2020

    I'm extremely happy with the restoration done to my Dubl Duck Goldedge. I sent Razor Emporium a slightly dull razor with yellowed scales and got back clean white cracked ice with a very sharp blade.

    Straight razor restoration

    Love the work they do. This was either my fifth or sixth razor. All the work has been good. Just wasn’t impressed as I’ve been with previous razors. For some reason the scales seem too big for the razor? I didn’t call to complain. The company is stand up. The materials used this go isn’t as nice as the wood or horn. I’d went with the jade this time. Think them not getting 5 starts is just me in my bag seeing other work they’ve done. The turnaround was fast. Will continue to do business.

    strait razor honing

    Posted by Matthew McWilliams on 7th Jan 2020

    The first time I sent my razor in, it came back great and was good for almost 6 months. This last time i sent my razor it, it came back only slightly better than when I sent it. It still feels dull and pulls when I shave.

    Took forever to get my razor back. It looks like it was replaced with a new one as it does not look the same. Good razor though.
