Most of our competitors have their razors manufactured overseas (even if they advertise that they are "Designed in Canada"). Our Razors are fully designed, manufactured and assembled in Canada.
We look to exceed your competitors in all aspects, and therefore provide a pack of 100 Astra Superior Platinum double-edged razor blades with every purchase. This will provide the average shaver with 2 years of precision shaves. After that, razor blades can be found for your Henson Shaver for as little as 10 cents a blade.
Yes, as the name suggests, safety razors are safe. Most users will find they experience far less nicks, irritations, and ingrown hairs in comparison to a cartridge razor.
First, it's precision. Most of our competitors use manufacturing processes that build in allowances. Allowance in the blade fit, allowance in the head width, allowance in the blade gap. The build in these allowances in case something isn't perfect in their metal casting or their coating. Henson Razors are machined (not cast) and are anodized (not painted or chromed) so our tolerances are down to the thousandth of an inch. This means a straight blade every time, and the thinnest blade exposure on the market. Thinner blade exposure means less vibration in the blade (chatter). Less chatter means less irritation and a better shave every time.

The only difference between the Men's and Women's razors are the blade gap and blade exposure. These measurements control the "aggressiveness" of the shave. For finer hair and shaving areas other than the face, a milder razor is generally desired. For the face and coarser hair, the aggression of our Men's razor is more suitable.

Technical Details
Men’s - .85 mm Blade Gap and .002” Blade Exposure
Women’s - .68 mm Blade Gap .001" Blade Exposure

The .85 mm and .68 blade gap, would be considered on the aggressive side, respectively. However, the nature of our design mitigates some of the effects of the unwanted aggression. This is why’ve chose a higher aggression blade gap. This allows more of the positive benefits of the aggressive blade gap while the unwanted byproducts are a bit tamed by the head design. This is one way they razor achieves good safety and high shaving performance simultaneously.

The handle is .473” at the tail and tapers up to .394” near the head.
The length is 3.750” to the radius at the tail.
