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) 



  1. "Add to Cart" this service, check-out and make payment.
  2. You will purchase Shipping during checkout, this is how we will return your razor after completion.
  3. You will receive an Order Confirmation E-mail within minutes of your purchase. Click the link that says Shipping Instructions for Service Work and follow the directions. Include the ticket number / bar code scan form in your package.
  4. Send in your razor however you choose - USPS Small Flat Rate box is our recommendation. The postage you have purchased already is for return shipping.
  5. We'll let you know when we receive your razor and keep you updated during the process. 
  6. Our turn-around time is 3-5 business days once we receive your razor. 


Our Guarantee

We promise to deliver to you a "Shave Ready" razor that has been polished, adjusted, sanitized and lubricated. We guarantee our work for 30 days from the date we ship it back to you, giving you the confidence to enjoy using a quality vintage razor! Please contact us with any other questions!

    Razor Tune up

    Posted by Robert F Logel on 16th Jul 2020

    I sent in two Gillette adjustable razors, a slim and a fat boy. They came back looking and working as if they were new. Customer service is also impressive. Matt himself called to ask me if I was interested in replating one of the razors which had some areas that were questionable. All in all, my experience with Razor Emporium was top notch.

    After 30 years of use, my razor was returned in almost new condition. Had forgotten the feel of a good shave.

    Gillette Adjustable

    Posted by RICHARD AUAIS on 28th Jun 2020

    First time using the tune up service. AMAZING results. Purchased a Gillette "Fatboy" needed a tune up and real cleaning. It came back looking like a new razor. I will definitely be sending in other razors in the future.

    Fatboy Tune-up

    Posted by Adam Mort on 19th Jun 2020

    I bought an old Fat Boy, but was disappointed to find that one of the doors was not in alignment and the razor was a little rough all around. Compared to one that I already had which I considered to be near mint, it was not even comparable. Matt cleaned it up and straightened the doors I am not sure exactly what, but now it actually looks much better than the other one that I thought was in nicer condition. I have since left some other prized razors with the Razor Emporium for tune-up, revamp, and re-plate and if their previous work is any indication I am sure that they will be returned in the best condition possible. I am glad that there is someone who has their knack for restoration/repair for my hobby/collection pieces.

    I sent Matt two vintage Gillettes - a British Aristocrat with a bent safety bar and a President that lost one of the end caps. Great communication by Matt beforehand, fast service and everything came back shiny and fixed and working wonderfully. The Aristocrat was my favorite daily shave and am so glad to have that back in the rotation (I was certainly not going to try and fix that one myself - in Matt's hands, it is back to great shape). Thanks!
