Henson razors are fresh new interpretation of a classic razor manufactured with extreme precision that makes all the difference. With a blade that only sticks out roughly half the thickness of a human hair, this razor eliminates all the unnecessary blade extension resulting in minimal blade flex and therefore less chatter along your skin. And chatter is what causes razor burn and irritation.

The manufacturing process, inherited from aerospace technology over the past 20 years, places Henson at the forefront of modern razors. It eliminates shaving irritation and cuts, providing a comfortable and smooth feel for your skin. This razor offers a completely new shaving experience unlike any other, leaving your skin feeling amazing.

The Henson razor has large exit channels for hair to flow out after it’s cut, preventing clogging or interference with the cutting action of the blade. Simply rinse the razor in water to quickly remove hair and shaving creams.

The Mild Razor would be especially recommended for individuals with sensitive skin who frequently experience skin irritation or ingrown hair. If you have light beard growth or prefer head shaving or women's shaving areas beyond the face, the mild option is ideal.

The Medium Razor features slightly increased blade exposure and a wider blade gap compared to the standard Henson AL13 (mild). This design enables the medium razor to effectively manage thicker and longer hair, though it may require additional attention when shaving more sensitive areas. If you have medium beard growth, the medium option is ideal.

The Aggressive Razor is ideal for individuals with heavy beard growth and coarse hair.

Smooth shave.

So far so good.

Not as good as expected

Your ads claimed this razor shaves better than multi-blades without cutting like old-fashioned safety razors. I am finally healed up after last weeks try, and hesitate to use it again. I had several areas where I took the top layer of skin off. I decided to try yours because I have had a problem with my multi-blade razor causing ingrown hairs, and makers constantly changing designs that don't work with a previous handle.

I’ll never go back to cartridge razors.

I’ve made the switch to DE razors, and I’ll never look back. In all fairness, the Henson is the only double edge razor that I’ve used. That being said, I couldn’t be more satisfied with the AL13. Using the proper gear makes for a much closer shave. Highly recommended.
