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.

Henson AL13 aluminum razor

5 Pack of double edged blades*

Lifetime Warranty

*The average user will get a month's worth of shaving or more from the 5pk of blades included. Additional blades can be purchased from anywhere and it works out to less than 50 cents per month.

One bad shave is enough to ruin the day.

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 RK Stainless 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.

WOW!

I can’t believe what a difference this razor made. A good shaving cream and this razor has made me enjoy shaving. I never thought I would say that.

Good nostalgic shave

Pretty good. This is great for the daily shaver and I’d highly recommend. However, personally, I’m usually a once in every three days shaver and a single blade with minimal clearance between blade and housing for rinsing the excess stubble out makes it a more time consuming shave. Will do my best to start shaving more frequently because I do want to want to continue to use this product.

Love it

Previously I was using a Gillette Mach3, the blades are so expensive. Bought a Henson, loved it and bought two more (one for me just in case and one for my dad). I'm having a little issue with skin irritation but that's my bad - too much pressure, not making the skin wet regularly, shaving against the grain. I'm primarily using the razor for shaving my head
