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 sought 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 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.

What you'll get and when you'll get it.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
A 5 pack of Astra Superior Platinum 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.
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.
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 Henson AL13 and the Henson AL13 - Medium is 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 coarser hair, the aggression of our Medium razor may be more suitable.

Technical Details
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.

You can find the Henson AL13 Medium here .
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.

Back to basics. It works!

Love this razor. Have been using multi-bladed expensive razors for years. In fact, I have several multi-packs of replacement blades standing by. Tried this, basically, because it looked cool and replacement blades were extremely reasonable. Bottom like, yes it does look very good. Great quality. Feels good in hand. But the shave really is outstanding. Very smooth and comfortable. I always reach for this blade. Looks like the multi blades go to the back of the cabinet.

I have now tried the Henson Razor for some time. And it is not bad… But nor am I blown away. To be honest I shave against the grain and have always done so with Gillette Mach 3, whiteout any shaving cream or foam. Only warm water in the shower. I have always been able to reach all parts of the face without using force or to many strokes. But with the Henson, I need to go over the difficult spots again and again. For the larger parts, my skin is now accustom with the razor, but with the corner of the mouth, the many strokes makes the skin irritated. I have also tried with shaving cream, but without any difference. Also it is a bit to big, to easily shave under my nose. But all in all it is an okay razor. I will keep using it, as it is cheaper in the long run and much better for the environment.

Great product but...

way overpriced....small aluminium shaver like this should be no more than about $50. The quality of the shave is exeptional, better than my Turbo mach 3 disposable blade shaver. So even though I paid an arm and a leg here in Australia, Im still happy, lucky I only need to buy it once.

Cheap, No Plastic, No Gillette

I have been using this type of razor for over two years since Gillette decided to insult my entire gender but still found a multiblade razor gave a smoother finish. This razor solves that problem.
