Henson Shaving prides itself not on creating a great razor business, but on creating the best razor overall. Made from aerospace-grade aluminum, the Henson AL13 is manufactured at the company’s aerospace facility in Ontario, Canada. Interestingly enough, this razor is built to meet the same AS0199 aerospace standards that are necessary to create satellite components. This razor claims to work with one pass, leaving zero irritation, promising a baby-smooth shave.
This is possible because it works differently by shearing the hair precisely at the skin level. The Henson AL13 blade razor only protrudes a mere 0.0013, which is roughly half the thickness of a human hair. Because of this precise design, this razor eliminates all need for unnecessary blade exposure and creates less blade flex. The brand’s description of the razor explains that it “puts an end to shaving irritation and cuts, while also making the skill feel comfortable and smooth.” The Henson AL13 razor works with any standard double edge blade, so there are no custom blades and no subscriptions to deal with. Each order comes with a Helson AL13 aluminum razor, a five-pack of Astra platinum double edge blades, as well as a lifetime warranty.
