Making parts that last is in our DNA. But beyond the longevity, every Henson razor is built with precision at it's core. Why? Because when you can limit the movement of a blade, and present it to your skin at a consistent geometry, the result is a remarkably safe and smooth shave.
This razor is only possible to produce because of the lessons we learned from aerospace manufacturing the last 20 years.
Manufactured at our aerospace facility in Ontario, Canada, our razor is built with the same AS9100 aerospace standards required to create satellite components.
Our blade exposure and blade angle are precisely machined to tolerances as tight as +/-0.00025" to provide a close shave with little, if any, irritation.
At 1.3 oz., this razor is ultra-lightweight and extremely agile, yet completely proficient, and is a joy to use. It is economically machined and coated with Type II anodize, which gives this razor the looks you want with the protection you need.
Don't worry, we've done the math so you don't have to.
With a blade that only sticks out roughly half the thickness of a human hair (0.0013" or 33 microns), this razor eliminates all the unnecessary blade exposure. We've also incorporated the optimum shaving angle into the head design. By focusing on repeatability, we've virtually eliminated any learning curve associated with this razor. People used to using a multi-blade cartridge razor will be surprised how easy the transition is.
Henson razors are engineered to last. Buy once, use forever, and pass it down from generation to generation.
Our razor works with any standard double edge blade you can buy almost anywhere - local supermarkets, shaving shops or online. No subscriptions. No proprietary blades.
With blades that cost pennies, most people will spend $2-3 per year on blades.
More than 2 Billion disposable Razor and cartridges reach the landfill every year. With a Henson Razor, your razor blades can be recycled at most metal recycling depots. All aspects of Henson packaging are 100% plastic-free for a low carbon footprint from our factory in Canada to your door.
"Switched from cartridge razors after 15 years, and after some research decided to go with the AL13. I’ve had the best shaves of my life with no irritation, and actually enjoy shaving now."
Yes, as the name suggests, safety razors are safe. Most users will find that in comparison to a cartridge razor, they experience far fewer nicks and ingrown hairs, and less irritation.
A 5 pack of RK Stainless double-edged razor blades are included with every purchase. This will provide the average shaver with 1-2 months of precision shaves. You also have the option of purchasing a pack of 100 blades which will last approx. 2-3 years for the average shaver. After that, razor blades can be purchased in many locations such as the retailers found in our International Retailers section.
Our Razors are fully designed, manufactured, assembled and packaged in Canada.
First, it's precision. By CNC machining our Henson razors (as opposed to molding or casting), and anodizing them for protection (as opposed to painting or plating), we are able to target and maintain specific sizes and reduce the necessary allowance so that critical features of our razors are kept consistent within a thousandth of an inch. This ensures a straight and consistently loaded blade every time, meaning that the blade is presented to your skin the same every shave!
Second, it’s the shortest blade extension on the market. Shorter blade extension means less vibration in the blade (chatter). Less chatter means less irritation and a better shave every time.
The only differences between the Henson AL13 and the Henson AL13 - Medium are the blade gap and blade exposure. These measurements are two major factors in controlling the "aggressiveness" of the shave. For finer hair and shaving areas other than the face, a milder razor is generally desired. For coarser hair, the aggression of our Medium razor may be more suitable.
AL13 - .68 mm [.027”] Blade Gap and .033 mm [.0013"] Blade Exposure
AL13 - Medium - .85 mm [.033”] Blade Gap and .058 mm [.0023”] Blade Exposure
You can find the Henson AL13 Medium here .
The AL13 Medium is identical to our best selling mild razor but with a wider blade gap and exposure for a more aggressive shave. Effortlessly glides through longer, thicker hair. The perfect unisex razor available in the full range of signature Henson colors.
Made of Grade 5 Titanium, it is lighter than steel but also stronger. The skill and experience required to machine an exotic metal like Titanium to the tolerances Henson demands makes a razor like this a very rare commodity.

Larger than my old razor
Not a complaint, just an observation. The footprint of my new Henson razor is larger than my old razor. Took a couple of shaves to get acquainted. The product is great and I’m glad I made the purchase, just took a minute to adjust.
Great shave, the right price, and eco friendly.
The Henson razor is pretty self explanatory. It’s just an incredibly well designed tool, and for that reason it works exactly how it should. That’s 3 of my 5 stars. The other 2 come from the fact that with the plastic free packaging, this entire setup is technically biodegradable. It will just rust to oblivion, not grind down to micro-plastic … of course I won’t let that happen, this razor is something that I look forward to using with no end in sight. Feels good to have an eco friendly, lifelong shaving solution that doesn’t involve a soul selling price point.
Two shavers are better than one.
I now own 2 Henson shavers. I bought the original one first and found it was ok for removing fine beard hair with the RK Henson blade but not thick growth. So I bought the AL13 model which is designed to work better with thick growth. I then found the AL13 works best with the Astra blades. Now I use the AL13/Astra first then smooth over my face with the original/RK blade. I also use hair conditioner (Unilever Sunsilk 700ml plunger bottle) as a shaving cream because it softens the beard and rinses cleanly from the razor, lubricates my face, and prolongs the shaving life of the blades.
Good shave, no nicks
The razor shaves very smoothly. Shaving with the grain, the razor is able to get the facial hair down short. For a clean shave, you need to re-lather and do a second, and sometimes third pass against the grain. I've tried many standard razors before this, with 2-5 blades. All of them caused much more irritation and many cuts. This razor does not nick the skin, which I love. The razors themselves are also SO MUCH MORE cost effective. Despite the costly initial investment, I would recommend this razor to anyone, and wish I had known about it 20 years ago.
Very Good Razor, Nice to Use Something More Sustainable
Overall I'm happy with this razor, it cuts very close to my skin and I have yet to nick myself with it. The only thing I have to complain about is the length of the handle, it could be a little bit longer, but I've gotten used to it and this is mostly a minor complaint.
Best Razor EVER!!!!!
Absolutely love it. Very comfortable and doesn't leave a rash or any sensitive skin.
Order this now. You're literally saving thousands of dollars over the course of the next few years. It pays for itself in a few months.
