Straight Razor Restoration Service Sharpy Gator

Straight Edge Razor Restoration Service

The Sharpening Shack is now proud to offer our customers complete straight razor blade restoration services. Our services will remove 90% or better of all rust and pitting were applicable in addition to stains or oxidation. Regardless of the grind of the blade and size, the razor can be cleaned to it's maximum potential without affecting the integrity of the blade. Once the razor has been cleaned of rust and pits, you have a choice of a satin or mirror blade finish.

While all pitting cannot be removed in some cases, the razor will be treated as one of my own to clean it to its potential. Sometimes one must accept that all blemishes cannot be removed, but we do our best while ensuring the razor's integrity is not damaged.

The Sharpening Shack utilizes various machines and techniques to accomplish your straight razors restoration. Our experience of restoring over 100 razors allows us to know a razors limitations. We restore most all razors using a combination of buffing compounds and polishing rogues along with hours of vibration polishing to achieve the highest brightness in polishing of your straight razor blade..

Scales will be unpinned, "the owners of the razor need to know that no razor scales are completely safe during the unpinning process. Unfortunately, no matter how careful the unpinning process scales do break. If you wish to proceed with this cleaning option and the scales break, new scales or custom scales can be be purchased or we can get some cheaper replacement plastic scales at cost for the replacements. Facts are, about 1 in 10 unpinning's result in a cracked or broken scale because the pivot pin is generally severely bent.

Straight Razor Cleaning & Polishing Service

We know sometimes it is best to just leave the original scales pinned and just clean and polish the exposed areas.
