Henson Shaving AL13 with Medium Blade Gap: Medium --- .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.

The razor felt slightly more efficient than the mild version. I got a “closer shave”, but it was still incredibly smooth. I am very happy with my purchase.

Best DE razor yet!

I have 14 or 15 DE safety razors, some expensive, including my Gillette twist-to-open which I started shaving with in 1960 at age 13. I’ve been searching for the perfect razor for my face (heavy, fast growing whiskers, have to shave against the grain with pressure, face buffing on some parts of my face). This the best DE razor for me yet!! I wasn’t looking for another razor but I read about this and studied the reviews and finally got the medium. It is unbelievable. This is a game changer. I just finished my 7th shave with it, Astra Super Platinum blade, and I have never gotten a close and comfortable shave from any DE razor like the shave this Henson gave me. This is a game changer for me. I love the copper color. The blade is held in a way unlike any other DE razor (I checked with a jeweler’s loupe). There is even a tungsten insert the handle presses against so when you tighten the handle. If you want the increase the agressiveness you can loosen the handle slightly. The best for me is tight. The mild is perfect for me. This is indeed a razor for the space age!!! One day I’ll get the titanium version. I get the best shaves when I use a few drops of shaving oil before lathering.

This is it!

After the acquisition of 15 or so razors I've found the Holy Grail. The Henson medium and a Rapira Lux. No cuts, weepers, irritation. Smooth and close. Had to tell someone.
