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.

    Gillette toggle tune up service

    Posted by Alex Traubert on 16th Sep 2019

    After hearing back from Razor Emporium i am updating my review Posted by Alex Traubert on 28th Aug 2019. Matt had contacted me and asked for pictures of the razor. After sending them, he said he wanted me to be 100% satisfied with their service so sent me a return label. I received my razor today and the repairs necessary were made and the adjustable head works perfectly. Overall, great customer service and work.

    Gillette toggle tune up service

    Posted by Alex Traubert on 28th Aug 2019

    At First I was impressed with the communication with the progress of my razor and the quick turnaround time. Once the razor was returned, the adjustment tray still did not move when the dial was turned. This was the primary reason for sending the razor in. I email the service department and received a response telling me to watch the tray move as the adjuster is turned, as I initially mistakenly referred to the tray as a guard. I sent a reply saying that the tray doesn't move when the dial is turned. I received no response. I send a second email a few days later asking for advice or path forward and again had no response. I will try again to contact the shop to find a resolution to my issue and Hope to upgrade my rating of the service.

    Revamp

    Posted by Dave on 2nd Jul 2019

    I sent my 1960 fatboy in for a tune up. It had been dropped and one of the doors was bent. They found some brassing and contacted me, so I upgraded to a revamp with the factory nickel finish. My fatboy is like new! Turn around was quite fast. Five stars!

    Looks brand NEW!

    Posted by Ryan May on 28th May 2019

    I was an idiot and thought I would restore the clarity of my 1963 Gillette Slim Adjustable case by using a Headlight repair kit (Wipe New). Well that was a horrible idea..and clouded it up to where you could no longer see inside.

    After teasing me a little, Matt and Razor Emporium educated me on the types of plastic and what works best. Anyway my case came back, from the repair service, looking brand new. Thank you Matt and Razor Emporium for fixing my mistake!!
