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 3/4 the thickness of a human hair (0.0023" or 58 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 machined 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 Mild here .
Our best selling razor with minimal blade exposure for a smoother shave. 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.
- safety razor
K.I.S.S. + precision = excellent
I very happy with my Henson razor so far. I’ve never been convinced that multiple blade razors were necessary or even made sense. This single blade razor gives me a superior shave. And I like that it’s all metal and has a good feel because of its mass. I’m convinced that this Henson razor will be in my possession for a very long time.
A great razor
Smooth, lightweight and accurate shave.
Extra Ordinary Shave
I love my Henson shaver. I didn't think that I would love it as much as I do, or love it more than my Merkur and Muller razors, but I do. I can see the engineering that does into this as compared to my German-made (still great) shavers, but this is how yo take an "A" product, and make it an A+; that "+" makes all the difference in my shaving routine. I'm a seasoned safety razor user after long giving up on the cartridge (no mater who makes them). This is better fort my face, environment, and wallet. I would love to add a *little* more weight to the handle, but that's just my preference. Great job team!
Change for the better
I was using another safety razor and was not happy with the results. This razor is a marked improvement, cutting faster and feeling better in my hand. I still get nicks here and there, but overall am happy with the speed and smoothness of the shave.
Back to Basics
Shaving with the Henson razor has given me the closest shave in years. Just make sure you have a good lather for the best experience. Experience had been so great, I purchased the same razor for my son!
Build to last - great quality and shave
The design and overall quality of the Henson AL13 is great. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a clean shave and save costs in the long term.
I learned to shave with this style razor 50 years ago so when I read the bit about the "journey" I was goin on I had to laugh. But I hate being fleeced for the blades of my current razor so the add worked. Been a month now and still too many additional strokes required causing nicks, face and neck burns I haven't experienced in decades. I only use water that is on the razor from rinsing it and typically shave every 2-3 days now that I am retired but it becomes too painful to bear it if I don't shave every day now with this razor. I don't, not recommend it because I'm sure it works great for lots of people.
