Razor Emporium's "Razor Revamp" service is WONDERFUL. I am thrilled with the recently completed revamp of my father's 1952 Gillette Diplomat, which I have inherited. To my eyes, it looks better than new. It will be a treasured family heirloom that will be used frequently in its new life. The quality of the work and precision of the plating are examples of genuine old-school craftsmanship. Congratulations, Razor Emporium.

Matt has done a complete turn around at RE and we may expect some real good services and items. I am glad that you are the beneficiaries of his improved services. Post pics soon please.

I bought my birth year and quarter Gillette Black Beauty from them. It was mint as advertised and in perfect shape. I have also bought a mint Lady Gillette off them in the past. I was very satisfied with both transactions.

I have not had the pleasure of a Revamp from RE but I will mention that their service otherwise is outstanding.

The description of the condition of their vintage razors for sale has been completely accurate as well.

Craig, enjoy your Diplomat!

I've bought 3 vintage straights from them over the past couple of years and all 3 were in excellent condition as advertised. Excellent service, not to mention a fabulous edge by their honemeister.

F1 just back from the Razor Emporium spa treatment. They did a very nice job on this one. Turn around time was four weeks.
