Replating service

The two razor plating specialists I've used are Chris Evatt, at RazorPlate.com, and Dave Glynn, of restoredrazors.com. Unfortunately, the former is in the US and the latter now in New Zealand. There are others in the US, but none anywhere like as reliable as these two. I don't know of any currently working in the UK.
However, I'm not sure either Dave or Chris would deal with your Hoffritz. AFAIK it's made of zinc alloy, which is tricky to replate. Good luck anyways.

I was hoping somebody would pick up on this and say there is a razor plating specialist in the UK or EU, but maybe there isn't. It's a topic that crops up on this and other formums, so maybe there's a gap in the market.

The only thing I can think of is cutlery replating. Although I'm not sure they will do chrome or nickel I think they just concentrate on silver or gold. Either would be fine by me . :)

There is one man called Anel in Slovenia that does great job replating razors. You can find him on Instagram under name anelcaus.

I would definately recommend Dave Glyn over anyone. I tried Anel and he turned me down stating he 'doesn't do other peoples personal razors' only ones to sell on.

I’ve had good service from Prestige Electroplating in Mexborough, very reasonably priced and great results. They don’t have a website but the number’s on Yell and they’re very helpful.

They can probably only do three-piece razors though as one of those faffy TTO things would need to be dismantled.

I had a fat-handle English Tech done by Prestige a few years back and it's marvellous. Way better than the original plating.

I've not contacted Chris, but Dave is a nice guy. I haven't had any work done with him yet, but I've had several communications via email. I'd definitely get in touch with him again if I needed any re-plating. He is very knowledgeable about razors, and has a passion for plating them.
