The above prices include the stripping of original plating, initial polishing and final polishing after plating.

Adjustable razors also include painting in of black numbers using a durable enamel paint.

I also carry out any adjustments to alignment and operation of the razor prior or during plating.


Prices also depend on the cost of the plating chemicals - these vary with metal prices in general, especially Rhodium

(Postage is charged at cost)

Razors will only be returned to you using Signed For (Recorded Delivery) as I cannot be held responsible for non-delivery otherwise.

I request payment (via Paypal) to dave@restoredrazors.com once your razor is all done and ready to return to you. (payment can be taken in £ GBP or $ NZD)


Please send your razors with a short note, including your return postal address to: 36 Lochend Place, Highland Park, Auckland, 2010, New Zealand.
