The Henson Shaving Line
Our namesake, William Samuel Henson was a pre-Wright Brothers aviation engineer and inventor. Henson invented the modern form of the razor, the ’T’ shaped safety razor, and patented it in 1847. While a major improvement on the previous form of the safety razor, additional improvement was needed to make safety razors common and useable for everyone. In 1901, Gillette combined Henson’s T-shaped safety razor with disposable blades, and produced the modern razor.
Since the early 1900’s the Safety Razor has remained relatively unchanged and the market has more recently become flooded with manufacturers wanting to jump on the eco-trend with nearly all sending their manufacturing overseas.
