Years of experience machining parts in the aerospace industry has taught us that rigid, well supported cutting tools tend to cut better than tools that flex and bend.
We wanted to try making a razor that focused on blade rigidity, as well as a precisely controlled blade position, which we hoped would allow for a smoother, more consistent shave.
Customers have told us the Henson feels smoother, but we needed to know for sure, so we partnered with a medical imaging startup out of Toronto to compare the Henson to a leading multi-blade razor.
Sixty volunteers shaved one side of their face or neck with a Henson razor and the other side with a leading multi-blade razor. They looked under the skin to measure any increase in irritation response.
The camera used for the test detects blood flow in the skin, the more damage caused to the skin, the more blood your body will send to the area to help repair it
In these comparison images, the coloured area represents where the participants shaved. The cooler colours represent little to no increase in blood flow and the warmer colours represent increased blood flow to the area.
Simply put: green means less irritation, red means more irritation.
No more throwing out cartridges or entire razors. The Henson is machined from metal and uses fully recyclable blades.
Machined at our facility in Ontario, Canada, every Henson is sold with a lifetime warranty against manufacturers defects.
Give it a try, you can take your time and make sure you love your Henson.
