Just got these back from the Razor Emporium REVAMP service. I had 2 pretty dull and uninspiring Aristocrats, a British #66 and US '34 OC. 

This was my first experience with RE and I think it went pretty well, they were true to their word in that they notified you upon receipt of the razors and at each stage of the process (cleaning, stripping, plating..etc) up to returning the razor back to you. I had questions during a few steps of the process and they were answered quickly and concisely and all communications is held inside their website, so its all in one place no fumbling for any emails. They post before and after shots of your razors which I found pretty handy.. I've included them below. 

For a major 'big' company replate process this was straight forward, you send it to them and they send it back shiny and with some new life breathed back into my razors.

Thanks all, it was a positive experience and pleasant one where I think the visual result are obvious. Without ever having had one of these razors new in hand before I would have a to say the finish on both are incredible!! The doors one these two Aristocrats are like mirrors and the knurling hasn't lost any grip which can happen with replating... Very happy with the work.

Very nice work. I have some old Techs that I want to get replated someday. Now your pics are making me want it even more! Use them both in good health!

Thanks all for the look and continued compliments... the results are amazing as I keep looking at it and the shave is as enjoyable as its appearance! 

For those who can take advantage, I think its a worth while effort. Turn around time was just under 5 wks counting a 4 day delay from USPS. We have excellent selection of replaters at our selection now.
