From space parts to razors - the Henson Shaving Story

"You're crazy" they said.

"Why would you use your 20 years of aerospace experience to make razors?"

Maybe they were right. But when we see a problem, we solve it. Our family makes components for the Mars Rover, International Space Station, and low orbit satellites.

And now, we make razors.

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 the thickness of a human hair (0.0025"), 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.

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 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 .001" Blade Exposure
AL13 - Medium - .85 mm Blade Gap and .002” 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’ve 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 they 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.

Smooth razor

I use this to shave both face and head. Two passes for both. Very smooth without nicks or burn. This is becoming my favorite razor.

Great Precision Razor

I love this razor. It gives a very clean shave with less risk of cutting, or ingrown hairs. I have very sensitive skin and I had no issues at all with this razor. Even when I was learning to use it I had no problems. Great product that so far I would definitely recommend.

The best

This razor is incredibly lightweight, so you don't expect the amazing shave you get with it - quite simply the best and most comfortable shave I have ever had. At the age of 58, that really is saying something.

Worth the purchase!

At first got the red mild one and found it excellent shaving razor but decided that I wanted the medium kind so ordered the black medium and gave the red mild one to my wife. The medium feels about the same as the mild one. I looked inside the head of the razor there's a + sign on it meaning it's mild one and double + means medium so I know which is mild and which is medium. Helpful hint on the razor, looking at it you couldn't tell if it's mild or medium, but one good thing is there's no hang out at the end of the blade. So overall the razor is now in my razors collection rotation to use for my SOTD.

5-Star shaving experience

Nice design, feels light and good grip in the hand but the best part is the shave. Feels very safe and gives a superb close cut. I've used safety razors for many years but this design beats them all.
