    Default Gemstar Custom Razors

    After over 11 years of Professional Honing and Restoration

    Our mission statement is very simple...
    We take on all restorations as if they were for our own personal use, any razor that is found to be defective in any, way, from the work we did, will be fixed... All work will be completed in as timely a fashion as possible, but we will never rush an order and sacrifice quality workmanship....





    Pricing:


    Pricing for Vintage and Custom Restores are done by a per razor estimate, but in general runs from $45-$125...
    All Restoration includes honing to shave ready..

    Scale replacement on new razors seems to be very popular right now, pricing starts at $55 and goes up depending on materials and how fancy you want them...

    Regrinds are also available on a consultation basis...


    Honing to "full shave ready" is available separately, on an immediate turn around basis....

    The most asked question we seem to get is about Honing Costs ?????
    We have finally come up with a fair pricing structure...

    Starting at $15 for a Hollow Grind Razor.... In "Good" condition

    Add $5 for each of the following that apply to your razor....

    Wedge / Heavy / 1/4 Hollow blade
    Damage
    Frowns, Waves, anything that makes me have to do a complete bevel reset....
    All Japanese Kamisori razors start at $20
    Plus $ 8.00 Tracked, Insured, Boxed Priority Shipping CONUS on all razors...Outside the CONUS whatever it actually costs.......


    Occasional Razors for sale, E-mail me if you are looking and don't see any listed, I have dozens in the Drawers and on the Bench


    More Info on the website Gemstar Customs direct e-mail is simple gssixgun@gemstarcustoms.com

    Glen is a freakin' encyclopedia of knowledge when it comes to straight razors, especially when dealing with vintage restorations. Put his OCD to work for you, and you will not be disappointed.

    Default Custom Brushes for sale too

    Gemstar Customs has come into some good heavy Elk Antler
    I have enough to make about 8 brushes, I suspect 26mm or less on sizes although the two bases might go larger

    Pricing is pretty easy $50 - $75 for the Antler and the Labor to create the brush, price dependent on whether you want the Larger Bases and the Length of the Handle you want..

    The cost of the knot is totally in your hands, chose whichever you want and whatever it costs to get into my hands is the price added to the Handle..If you have some knot laying around the house that is okay too you just have to get it in my hands

    Fire me an e-mail if you are interested gssixgun@gemstarcustoms.com or PM me here

    I really like that turned brush, I would order one but am saving up for the winter.

    Really hoping someone orders a turned brush from you so that I can see some pics!
    8 turned brushes Glen!
