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) 

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR SENDING YOUR RAZOR IN FOR SERVICE

  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.

    Best in the biz

    Posted by Brian Myers on 12th Nov 2019

    This was my 4th time using Razor Emporium's Tune-Up service (I've also used the Revamp service), and the quality of the work is always outstanding. I wouldn't use anyone else.

    Repeater tune-up

    Posted by Jordan Lynch on 22nd Oct 2019

    I sent in 2 Schick C-type repeaters to be tuned up; updates were provided promptly in various forms, most often by telephone with Matt. One razor was considered lost, but that too was taken care of to my satisfaction. Anyone thinking of doing this, it's extremely worthwhile; one razor I sent in works perfectly from a totally non-functioning state before sending it. Also highly polished, with polishing cloths included upon return. Matt himself is a joy to work with, pleasant and courteous and passionate about what he does. Thanks for a great experience Matt.

    Razor Tune-Up

    Posted by Ed Black on 8th Oct 2019

    Over the past few years I have put 13 vintage Gillette razors through the Tune-Up Service. For the most part they are now close to the condition when new and in many cases just like new. Always came back better than when the went in.

    Sticky doors

    Posted by Robert Kouri on 1st Oct 2019

    2 of the razors are great. The doors on the fatboy stick. I assumed that would be addressed during the tune up. Thanks

    Gillette Double Edge Adjustable Safety Razor

    Posted by Ron Eberle on 28th Sep 2019

    The service was great. My razor was cleaned, adjusted, and chromed. The razor looks beautiful and appears good as new. I would highly recommend The Razor Emporium for any razor service you may need.

    Not Recommended

    Posted by Steve on 28th Sep 2019

    Sent in a beautifully clean, excellent-grade 40s Super Speed to have the doors re-aligned via 'Tune-Up'. Came back covered with tool gouges through the plating, into the base metal, permanently ruining its appearance. Ignored e-mail asking why this happened. They recently Revamped several other razors of ours, and they all turned out fairly well. But I would not trust them to do repair work again. I don't like posting a negative review. But others should be aware before entrusting a family heirloom or unique item to their bench.
