Straight Razor Restoration & Custom Scales

Our Razor Restoration Service will take your razor from dull to amazing! We start by sanding off any rust, tarnish, and small pits. Then, to properly polish the steel, we use specialized compounds and rouges to safely polish the afflicted metal. The result: a beautiful new surface that is polished to a near mirror finish- making your straight razor look clean and new. This process requires time, patience, and an understanding of metallurgy in order to safely maintain the temper and integrity of the steel – preparing your razor for the next step: True Honing
