    Default Love my Gillette

    I love my Gillette Speed DE! It's my birth year razor and shaves well, but it's looking pretty "brassy". Is there anyone who specializes in re-plating these? I saw the thread about Cerecoat, and that would be an easy fix, but I like to keep things more original. This is the razor I use on my head (fairly bare up there), and would really like to return it to top shape.

    Thanks

    Sorry for taking so long to get back to everyone. The wife and I talked about my options, and since today is my birthday, she decided a nice gift would be to have my razor finished in something that will last a very long time. It sounds like it will get a new Rhodium finish, which I think looks awesome.

    Thanks again.

    I highly recommend Chris at razorplate.com: RazorPlate.com

    He did my NEW Short Comb. Great work, great service, great prices.

    Just happened to stumble across this thread. I'm surprised and thankful I ended up in the conversation. Yes, we do bath plating in nickel, silver, gold and rhodium.

    Personally I would try one of these razors for $20. It's probably the same thing and if so will save you money over a custom restore.

    Straight razor shaver and loving it!

    I've seen those pawn shop razors on ebay starting at $5 brand new. If you're thinking about one I'd try there first. That razor is what got me started with DE shaving.
