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 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. They 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.

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.

Love it

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.

Blood everywhere

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.

Too bad...

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
