Henson Shaving AL13 with Mild Blade Gap:  .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.

Decent razor for the price

After a few uses with this razor, it reminded me very much of my old Mongoose razor, which I sold a few years ago for similar reasons as to why I feel this razor is good, but not great. First, I do like a very mild razor and this one fits the bill. The included blades are not adequate though, so I would invest in some Feather blades, which work nicely with this razor as they do with the legendary AS-D2. The razor is also very light, which could be a plus or minus depending on your preference. What I don't enjoy about this razor is what I didn't enjoy about the Mongoose. The paint/coating really tends to stick if you use any vegan creams and/or have relatively hard water. What I mean is that sometimes when you use soap with certain water, you get that "squeaky clean" feeling where skin tends to stick--and squeak--when in contact with smooth materials. A matte or pebbly finish on a razor head will generally fix this problem, which is why I really love my AS-D2. That razor is clearly in a different price category, but Henson's emphasis on cost-over-time would apply there too. If you're using a razor for 10+ years, the cost-per-shave equation starts to even out. In the end, I bought this as my travel razor so that I don't have to risk losing my other razors. lt's a decent value at $70, but certainly nowhere near other elite razors on the market. It does come in cool colors, though, so that's a plus!
