Well Crafted Razor
The A13-M was perfect for me. The razor cuts well w/o burn or irritation. The Henson is ideal for the 1st timer , or decades old user of DB shavers. Smooth, efficient unit. A-1
Not just right for me
The razor is beautifully designed and manufactured. It is a work of art no less. However, my skin appears to be too sensitive to use it, even though I tried several foams and gels. I contacted Henson and they immediately offered a refund. Nice product, great company. I recommend the razor if you can use it without irritation.
Didn’t really notice a significant difference from other similar shavers in the market…I am not really getting the claimed smooth shavers and no cuts.
I am Impressed
this razor with physics that actually make the blade work to its best extent is the best of the several I have tried. I'm hooked and bought a second one for my son to use....Extremely happy and without a nick or cut in weeks which is amazing!
"Oh wow" is what came to mind when I tried this razor for the first time. I'm gonna sound like a shill, but this really is the best razor I've ever used haha. I've heard of safety razors before, of course, but always assumed that they were a little risky. Modern razors, after all, have plastic housings to protect your skin from the blade. I'd always assumed they'd provide a poor shave, since they don't have multiple blades to really get close. I'd always assumed this century-old shaving "tech" was outdated and was therefore replaced by more functional modern razors. I was completely wrong. The Henson shaver glides smoothly over my skin, provides a remarkably close shave that's easily equal to my old five-bladed razor, hasn't cut me yet (in only two weeks tho, but so far feels very secure), and works extremely well overall. I'm even comfortable shaving my "lady bits" with it. I'm starting to think that all the talk about "the shaving industry lies about their quality in order to perpetually sell you expensive razor heads" wasn't just BS after all. The jury is still out on its effectiveness in reducing ingrown hairs, which have always been a problem for me, but so far I've been extremely impressed with its performance. The razor feels good in the hand, is lightweight but doesn't seem cheap (it's not, lol), and the machining is clearly high quality - the handle screws into the head like butter. Easy to hold, easy to rinse, easy to replace the blades (tho you gotta be a bit more careful)... it's a really nice unit. Call me a safety razor convert. I'll recommend this shaver to anyone. Special shoutout to Joe Scott's YouTube channel's sponsored segment that led me to Henson.
Great shave, great system.
I have been very happy with this razor. The blade refills are inexpensive and efficient. They're always sharp and deliver a great shave. I use a fresh blad each week. the single blade straight razor is much better on my ski. Using this razor takes a bit of practice and a few more minutes.
Skin cleared right up
I will never use another razor again.
