Henson Shaving AL13 - Aggressive

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.

One of my top razors.

I have had the Henson Aggressive razor for a month and it is ascending up my list of razors to become my favorite razor. It is a very comfortable shave forgiving even with soaps which are not as slippery. Currently it is battling with my Murkur Future (at 6) for my top spot. The Henson just is not quite as close as the Future, but it is far more comfortable. Love the Henson razor. It is even a great razor with the Feather blade. No nicks amazingly. The Henson has passed up the Pearl Flex in every category as a reference.

Probably the best razor I own.

Got this razor from Maggard three days ago and have shaved with it two times. It is by far the smoothest aggressive razor I own. I see how people might say it's not really an aggressive razor because its so trouble free, but it has given me a BBS shave in two passes both times I have used it. All because there are no nicks or irritation of any kind doesn't make this razor not aggressive, it actually makes it the best aggressive razor I have ever used ( I have easily over 50 DE and SE razors, both vintage and new). Henson's engineering has put this razor in a class of its own. I will still use my many other razors just for variety, but not because any one of them are better. None of them are.
