How to contact Captain Murphy.

I have a couple of razors in need of repair service. I've seen a lot of compliments on Captain Murphy.
so I searched for him on this community. It seems that he doesn't log in our community any more. His last visit dates back to 2018.

Is he out of business? if he isn't, how can I contact him?

In the event he's retired or worse, consider contacting Matt at Razor Emporium. He's been doing razor tune ups and refurbs for several years now:

For replating, contact Chris at BackRoadsGold - https://www.etsy.com/shop/BackRoadsGold He does gold, nickel & rhodium replating - his work is first-rate:

I think from memory that his main job keeps him pretty busy. He may take a little while to respond. Someone else who has dealt with him may have more information. Don’t be despondent if he takes a little while to get back to you.

I’ll reach out to Cap and see what’s going on he’s pretty responsive to me as we talk now and then. I know when he’s on a mission sometimes he gets way behind not only working on all the razors he gets sent to him but also answering emails. A couple of times this year he’s had some extended missions that really got him way behind.
If I get a hold of him and have some answers I’ll post them up in here.
 
Contact Chris Evatt at www,razorplate.com. He knows Cpt Murphy well and would know if he is in business.
A few years ago, I had a Fatboy in need of repair and replating. I sent my razor to Cpt Murphy ( in Idaho, I think ) who offered to send my razor direct to Chris ( in N. Car ).. He told me the two worked together all the time. Cpt Murphy is/was in the Navy and razor repair was a side gig. But his work was superb and worth the wait.
But that was then. I don't know how things are now.

Frank (@Dragonsbeard) is right. Cap is extremely busy but I talked to him yesterday (have a few projects with him) and I think he may be slowly catching up. Still he said he is way way behind on emails and everything.

I suggest to simply wait for his answer, he always reverts eventually as he is not only a razor wizard but also a top notch gentleman. I personally always wait patiently respecting fully his very busy work schedule, and sometimes he goes months between mails. Its just the way it is.

Cap and Chris are still working closely together - this rare gold 3rd gen Aristo is one of their latest refurbishments :001_tt1:

Glad you talked to him yesterday and based on what you said it sounds like he’s still trying to catch up. Him and Chris do great work and that 3rd Gen looks awesome my friend!

Thanks for up to date info!. I sent him an email yesterday. It seems it will take long to get response from him.
 
Yup, but worth waiting for! - didn’t notice your avatar until now - very cool indeed, sir :thumbup:
Thanks. I've wanted to get my hands on the razor. Instead, I won a bid on Famex.It will arrive at my house next week.
By the way, are you still looking for Danish razor? I've seen one pop up. It is not cheap though. I guess you've seen it.

Yup, thanks, saw the Danish Ginge and it is pretty high. Also I have been hoarding Aristocrats of late so am telling myself to lay low... :)

Look forward to pictures and shave report on the Famex, please :welcoming:
