Straight razor Restorations
Restore your vintage straight razor
Many prefer vintage straight razors over modern straight razors. Apart from the history that comes with each cutthroat straight razor there is the steel makeup itself which cannot be recreated because the worlds steel stocks rotate using different compounds. A great example of this is vintage Sheffield steel. This carbon steel can deliver outstanding edges. The metal can seem somewhat malleable on the hones as opposed to some modern steels which tend to be more brittle. Hence many seek out the vintage Sheffield wedge straight razors because they are renown for producing exceptionally smooth edges.
straight razor restoration service includes
Full or Superficial Re-Grinding / Polishing with compounds including Greaseless & Rouges.
bUYING VINTAGE STRAIGHT RAZORS
When looking to buy a vintage straight razor for use there are factors to consider.
Hone wear is important. This is the wear caused by sharpening a straight razor on an abrasive hone. Years ago, electrical tape was not available to protect the spine, therefore, spines became worn which can affect the geometry of the straight razor.
I have just received the razor and it is more than BEAUTIFUL. Thank You very much
for the fast shipping, and for the nice letter, You have kindly put in the box. I will never sell this razor, I love it already.
I have found the shave amazing: I cannot imagine a better level. Is it possible? Anyhow, this razor is actually the top of mines.
It is the best I have. Before it arrived, the best was my Filarmonica Novodur 14, but this one is better. I hope sooner
or later You will pass by Genoa: if so, please, write or call. You have my number now! ;-)
Thank You, ciao!

I would just like to say a massive thank you for the service you provided to me.
The renovated antique razor was pristine and my father (barber for 40 years) was delighted with his birthday present.
Your passion for these items really does come through in your products.

I have shaved with 3 different steels that Joseph has honed; Sheffield, O2 and Japanese blue #2 (Aogami)
steel Each gave an exceptional shave, very keen and buttery smooth. A visual inspection of the bevel shows
a beautiful Kasumi finish that only a razor quality Japanese natural stone, in the right hands, can achieve.
