I wanted to add here regarding my polishing DE Razors as well on my profile on DFS for Pricing.

Regarding Titanium razors I can polish depending on finish and how it’s been milled and it’s texture.

Pricing Guide this includes my time / Hours spend on it.
  • Handle: Only $105USD
  • Top Cap: Only $105USD
  • Baseplate: $90 - $125 USD - range is based upon baseplates that have a two tone metal finish.
  • Razor Stand $100 - $125 - range is based how ornate the stand is.
  • 3 Piece Razor mirror polish $230 USD savings of $70-$105
  • 4 Piece Razor mirror polish $330 USD saving of $70 - $130
  • Shipping Canada & US $26.95 USD
  • Return Shipping Worldwide $55 USD 

For Polishing Paradigm Razor’s 303 SS add $25 USD for each piece to be done!! It’s for material and my time as it requires!!

I have been receiving a lot of requests for polishing. While I appreciate the desire others have for me to polish their razors and other gear, I just cannot do a polish job for under the set price above.

Prices of my materials run well over $100 and then there is the hours it takes to polish the item. It is a process that is not only time consuming but also causes injuries and pain to my hands.

So please save us both the trouble by only reaching out if you are willing to pay the price for quality workmanship.

Otherwise I sincerely wish you good luck finding somebody to do a good job for less.

Please Note I do this with passion and meticulous care of Safety Razor, I do not like to get rushed to get it done in certain time frame as I like to take my time and do it right at first time.

Depending on time frame to be done and razor it self can take anywhere between 1-2 weeks as I update individually with progress.

I’m not Perfect but I’m Good of what I do.

Kind Regards

Alan, your pricing is VERY reasonable for the work you produce and your background in Horology.  A 3 piece razor mirror finished runs 3-400 USD from couple reputable custom gun makers I know.  They don’t want to fool around with it.  295 for a 4 piece kit is a steal.  Do any of your clients know you just can’t sit there with jewel specs on and go bananas? Tediously time consuming 

I think it’s important for you to channel all your work in your own page here so ppl know where to look and the before sand after.  Video too.  I would round up your customers here and ask for a referral on your personal page here at DFS.

Most importantly you stand behind your work……

Probably my favourite piece from Alan’s work. That’s a one off razor there!

Your Gladius handle is a work of Art, the transformation is incredible.  I’m looking at the side of your base plate and it picks up all the speckling of your quartz countertop! Are you waxing that brass? It looks perfect!

Alan applied something, and even sent me a bit to shine as needed, but I haven't done anything yet. The Gladius is amazing, but I found myself prefering the feel of the other. I actually moved the Gladius on to someone who appreciated it more and will use it.
