Designed Without Compromise
The Henson is designed to present the blade at the optimum shaving angle, with as little blade exposure 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 custom 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 exposure. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
After that, razor blades can be purchased in many locations such as the retailers found in our International Distributors section.
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.
AL13 - .68 mm Blade Gap .0013" Blade Exposure
AL13 - Medium - .85 mm Blade Gap and .0023” 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 we 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 the razor achieves good safety and high shaving performance simultaneously.

The engineering and execution is perfect!
Once I calibrated the proper minimalist amount of face lubricant Henson is delivering the shave of my 77 year life!
Great shaving with the razor
I have been using the Henson razor for about 3 weeks and really like the closeness and nick free characteristics of it.I have used many double edge razors including Gillette, Merkur, and others. It is my favorite, I don’t have a heavy beard like some of my friends but it is my favorite razor.
First time ever I’ve use the razor that didn’t cause any skin irritation or bumps. Feels great to have a close shave. Razor is so durable it will outlast me
Purchased a shaver and blades a few weeks ago. The shave is nice and close. It takes a bit to get used to maintaining the correct angle. When I used other shaving products in the past, I used to apply lots of pressure when shaving but with this very little pressure is required.
Has been a terrible experience. Tried twice and both times were a disaster. Giving it one more go and then it is going into the garbage.

Noticeably closer shave
I needed some “break in” time to adapt to using a safety razor again. Once I got use to it, the closeness of the shave is great.
I wanted to like this razor but the following kept me from keeping the razor: -slippery handle making it difficult to hold onto as I shave in the shower -accustomed to a pivoting head to adjust to the contour of my face -didn't experience as close of a shave as I did with my previous razor
