Henson Shaving AL13 with Mild Blade Gap: Mild --- .0007" - .0014"

Precision - Eliminate the Chatter.

Our razors are manufactured with the same Aerospace processes and in the same facility that produces components for the Mars Rover, International Space station, and production style work on Low Earth Orbit Satellites. This razor is designed and manufactured with extreme precision in mind. While most of our competition builds in allowance for casting and painting, Henson Shaving required and achieved remarkable five ten-thousandth of an inch (0.0005) tolerance on critical dimensions through the machining and anodizing process. This means your blade sits straight every time. The blade support creates the most accurate blade exposure on the market. Accurate blade exposure combined with our unique design means no vibration in the blade (or chatter). Chatter is what causes razor burn and in-grown hairs.

What this means for you is a noticeably better shave that just feels different. It truly is one of a kind.

Tungsten thrust bushing:

We have equipped our razor with a tungsten bushing which serves one purpose: to reduce friction while tightening the razor. This creates a smooth feel, with little torque required to clamp the blade in place. Tungsten has a very low coefficient of friction and is fairly hard, as well as being very corrosion resistant, so it serves well as a bushing in this application. Additionally, the reduced friction will result in less wear between the handle and the base plate. 

Value - Don’t Spend. Invest. Whether you are currently purchasing disposable razors, razor cartridges at the drug store, or have signed up for a subscription program, investing in a Henson Al13 will have you seeing cost savings within the first year. The average user will get a month's worth of shaving from the 5pk of blades included. Additional blades can be purchased from anyone and it works out to about a dollar per month.

The savings add up to be quite a lot over 20 years. Do the math. (Roughly $11,000 in savings over 20 years).

Having this razor at these prices took a substantial investment and our position is to not charge customers ongoing fees or trap them in continual subscriptions.

We want to make a great product at a fair price. That's it.

Environmental Impact - Look to the Future. More than 2 Billion disposable Razor and cartridges reach the landfill every year. With a Safety Razor, your razor blades can be recycled at most metal recycling depots.

Conclusion. We expect this razor to be drama free, cut noticeably better, and cost significantly less than what you are currently using now. Girls & Guys alike. Period.

I just received this last evening from Maggards and tried it this morning. Wow, what a great shave! I had watched several reviews of this mild version on YouTube and thought it sounded good. What I like is very mild, like the Edwin Jagger 89 head, and I have had some trouble finding heads like this. For example, the Maggards V3M head, which I initially liked, proved to be too aggressive and I reluctantly have stopped using it. But this mild-version Henson aluminum razor is about the best mild shave I have ever gotten (using an Astra Superior Platinum), and very much like the EJ 89 (slightly less aggressive than the Gamechanger .68, also good in mildness). As far as build-quality, it is excellent. I was a little worried that an aluminum razor might feel too lightweight, but it isn't really all that light and it didn't bother me in use. The long handle helps in this regard, I think. So this is about the best $50 I have spent on a razor and I'd highly recommend it.
