Our medium razor has slightly more blade exposure and a wider blade gap than the regular Henson AL13. This allows the medium to handle thicker and longer hair but requires more attention when shaving the sharper areas of your body.

Designed Without Compromise

The Henson is designed to present the blade at the optimum shaving angle, with as little blade extension as possible.

We then set out to engineer a manufacturing process to meet the tolerances required, without compromising from the design.

The result is an alarmingly safe shave that eliminates irritation.

A baby smooth shave.
One pass. Zero irritation

Skin irritation is totally avoidable.

Rather than cutting beneath the skin, the Henson AL13 shears the hair precisely at skin level.

Buy once. Use forever.

Made from aerospace grade aluminum, and manufactured at our aerospace facility in Ontario, Canada, our razor is built with the same AS9100 aerospace standards required to create satellite components.

We want the best razor, not the best razor business.

No subscriptions.
No proprietary blades.
No planned obsolescence.

The only chance for Henson to compete with the deep pockets of the big companies and bring this to the masses, is to create a razor so good that you can't help but tell your friends about it.

A smart investment for your skin
(and your wallet)

*Our razor works with any standard double edge blade you can buy almost anywhere (local supermarkets, shaving shops or online)

What people are saying about the Henson

Extreme precision makes all the difference.

With a blade that only sticks out roughly half the thickness of a human hair (0.0013"), this razor eliminates all the unnecessary blade extension. This means less blade flex and therefore less chatter along your skin.

Chatter is what causes razor burn and irritation.

This razor is only possible to produce because of the lessons we learned from aerospace manufacturing the last 20 years.

What you'll get.

Henson AL13 aluminum razor

5 Pack of double edged blades*

Lifetime Warranty

*The average user will get a month's worth of shaving or more from the 5pk of blades included. Additional blades can be purchased from anywhere and it works out to less than 50 cents per month.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 month of precision shaves. You also have the option of purchasing a pack of 100 blades which will last approx. 2 years for the average shaver.

After that, razor blades can be purchased in many locations such as the retailers found in our International Distributors 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.

Not satisfied with the product

I don't like how it leaves my face filling after shaving. My face feels irritated and scratchy.

Well designed, well made

I wanted a razor that can cut a few days growth after a weekend and bought a Henson medium. I like the flat, straight angle of its top that helps me to hold the blade at the correct angle as I shave. The Henson is machined precisely with no scratchy edges on its top.. I have the anodized green one, and it looks great. I use it five days a week.

I enjoy shaving again!

This razor is such a joy to use; sharp, light weight yet sturdy, nick-free (so far), and well made. I now actually look forward to lathering up and scraping away the scruff. I even shaved my legs for the first time in a long while (I used to race bicycles).

Grate razor but kinda sad the design changed after I got mine

I checked the web page and noticed that design seems changed recently. Still, I love this product. and love the green anodized color. I don't have much facial hair but often used disposable razor for shaving body hair. Most disposable razor has 2~3 blades and the blade gap easily clogged with long thin body hairs. But Henson Shaving safety razor has wide blade gap so it can easily shave body hair without clogging. Also easy to disassemble, easy to clean and maintain the razor. This is absolutely gorgeous.

Old school single blade with modern touch

`I was surprised how great my first shave was with this Henson AL13 razor. I mean I read the sale pitch and so I thought it better be as good as they say. Well, it was as good as they say it is. No more spending a lot on disposable razors. I'm sold. If you are on the fence, try it and you'll be glad you did.
