Here's some razors recently re plated in gold by Dave at Restored Razors in the UK. Lovely job he's made of them. Click on the links for a bigger picture.

Beautiful. I have a few golds in my collection, and an Aristocrat I just love. One day she'll go for a restore.

Beautiful. Is there a coating over the gold to help protect it from wear?

Good question, every vintage gold razor I have used ends up losing its plating and I would be reluctant to re-plate them in gold in fear of history repeating itself. But they sure look nice with the plating intact.

There's no coating over the Gold but the razors are plated with Nickel before the Gold is applied. I understand the Gold thickness is more than the 'wash' that Gillette applied.
Thanks for all your comments much appreciated Smile

Beautiful razors, Dave does great work. He re-plated my Cobra in gold and is currently doing another for me this time in black chrome.
