Tune-Up Service

SKU: TuneUp

Description

Have a razor that needs to be cleaned, polished and adjusted? Tune it up!

What We Do

Vintage safety razors pack some of the most bang for the buck, but knowing if they are fully functional, hygienic and shave-ready is a different story. Starting at $29, we offer a professional restoration that helps bring your old-school razor back to its glory days. 

*Please Note: Specialty razors include Bottom Dial Fatboy, Red Dot Fatboy, and Toggle Safety Razors.

How it Works

  1. We first clean your razor in our industrial ultrasonic machine to remove any soap scum, mineral deposits and grime. Disassembly is carried out for the best results whenever possible. 
  2. Next we carefully polish the inside and out of your razor, bringing the vintage metal up to a high luster. 
  3. Mechanical adjustments are made to ensure the best functionality of your razor.
  4. We carry out any painting that is needed - numbers on adjusters, tips on super speeds and black handles. We use color-matched powder coating that exactly replicates the original factory colors and process. 
  5. Razors are again cleaned and sanitized before being lubricated and mailed back home. We include a free Polishing Cloth that will safely keep the shine on your vintage find!

Why It Matters

Professionally servicing means you'll get the best shaves possible knowing that your razor is functioning as it was designed to. Eliminate common problems that affect shaving performance such as:

  • Bent guards
  • Uneven blade gap
  • Frozen adjusters
  • Loose handles
  • Jammed doors
  • Twist To Open issues
  • Broken Clicker Spring (if you have an adjustable and it doesn't click anymore select the above option)

    1962 Gillette Slim Adjustable tune-up.

    Picked up this slim adjustable at a great price because the razor would not adjust the blade gap, but otherwise was in decent condition. RE did a fantastic job repairing and polishing this razor. They were expedient and kept me posted every step of the way. Will continue bolstering my razor collection via Razor Emporium! Many thanks to Matt & his crew!

    1962 Gillette Slim Adjustable tune-up.

    I'd gotten a decent deal on my Slim Adjustable from ebay. The finish was nice but the adjustment knob didn't do a thing regarding the blade gap. It rotated and clicked like it should, but that was it. The folks at RE kept me informed of their findings and returned the razor in perfect working order. Shaves amazingly. Hats off to Matt & his crew. P.S. Just sent in an old rough-looking Fatboy for revamping, It'll be the acid test.
