The Henson Aluminum Razor is a precision-made work of art.

At 1.3oz this razor feels nimble yet purposeful. Proudly designed, manufactured, and packaged in Canada, this quality product comes with a full warranty against any manufacturers defects.

Henson Shaving AL13 with Medium Blade Gap: .0016" - .0024"

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.

Excellent shave

I switched to this razor about 6 months ago. I use it with a Parker blade. I get an excellent shave with no irritation. One area that it works especially well is under the nose and under my lip. I would highly recommend for anyone who wants a great, irritation free shave.

I'm super with both Maggard razors and the Henson Shaving AL-13 M that I ordered. Maggard shipped quickly and was packaged securely. The Henson razor really impressed me. It's my third DE razor and I expected I might get a small cut on my first use, but really didn't! It is really precisely made and I have been pleasantly surprised with the how grippy the handle is while wet. I'm able to shave my legs in the shower again! I was happy with the RK blades Henson ships with their razors, and the DE blades I already had have worked nicely as well.

Highly recommend

This is probably the last razor I will need to buy. It has given me the most comfortable nick-free shaving experience since I bought it a year ago. The trick is not to apply too much pressure and expect to complete the shave in more than one pass. I no longer experience the irritation I had using cartridges. Interestingly the stubble seems to grow out evenly now compared to other razors but it also grows quicker, necessitating daily shaving instead of every other day. The razor is very high quality and you can tell its construction has been well thought out. While it is a more expensive razor, it saves you money in the long run because it uses inexpensive DE blades. The razor is made of aluminum so make sure not to drop or bang it.

Great Safety Razor!

I have been using the Henson AL13 Razor for a couple weeks. Best shave I have ever had. Smooth shave without the razor burn. I also ordered the Proraso Eucalyptus Oil and Menthol Pre and Post Cream and Shaving Cream. They smell and feel great on the skin.

Worth the money

My experience using the Henson Medium has been very positive. I previously used a Baili TTO, which I always felt I was on the verge of cutting or nicking myself with. In fact I did so too often. After using the Henson now for about 2 weeks, I feel I can shave MUCH more safely and faster than with the Baili. It is both nimble to use and very forgiving; and I am able to get as close a shave with two passes as I did before, perhaps closer; even though the Henson is a milder razor. I couldn't be more pleased. Of course, Maggard’s service was top tier too. Great company.
