Just got back my Gillette Aristocrat and My Slim Adjustable from Razor Emporium. I went with a rose gold with an accent of black on the to knob. Though the wait was lengthy it was well worth it. The aristocrat I bought for $5 as it was in bad shape with a door barely hanging on. RE told me to send it in with another razor just in case they couldn't fix it. To my surprise both were revamped for the price of one. Marissa from RE told me they have just received the equipment to do all the work in house which should make the process a lot shorter now that they don't have to send it out. Hope you like!

Thanks all.  It took a bit over 6 weeks but they were having troubles with the black finish on the tto.  I appreciated that they took the time to do it right instead of just sending me something half assed.  They should have it down to 2 weeks soon as theyre doing all the plating etc in house now, Id probably give them some time to get it together before i placed another order.

Razor Emporium got the most difficult correct which is the knurling. Sometimes it just looks caked on by platers. They did a nice job. Will send them things to do in the future.
