Henson Shaving is redesigning your safety razor. Named after the man to first patent the t-shape razor (that Gillette eventually developed into ubiquitous tool in use today), Henson Shaving is going back to the engineering drawing board to bring you exacting tolerances and construction.


This aluminum razor is a medium aggressive razor with exacting tolerances. They have collaborated with an aerospace design and manufacturer to ensure that each razor holds the blade at the correct angle and gap to give you the perfect shave. 


The light weight of this handle means that it is maneuverable and precise. It is crafted from aluminum and the long, knurled handle is great for multipurpose shaving. It works particularly well with Astra razor blades. Get it in aircraft aluminum, rocket red, steel blue, purple, or black.


Size: 1.3oz

Surprised by aggressive close shave

My go to razor has been Merkur 34C HD. Compared to the 34C, I feel the AL13 has a more aggressive shave. I can feel the steeper angle of the blade almost giving it the feel of shaving with a straight edge razor. I wish the price point was closer to the 34C, but I have been very pleased with the close comfortable shave even on several day old stubble. The fit and finish is very well done.

Henson razor

I love this razor. I have yet to get one nick. I can safely shave against the grain.

Best shave ever

Surprisingly smooth shave. Almost impossible to cut yourself. Precision made. The blade has no wiggle room at all and the cut is the same on both sides of the double edge blade.

My new favorite Henson

I really enjoy this Henson Aluminum razor. This razor very easy to use and fast because it’s light and has a high tech design. I especially like the fact that the design makes almost nick proof. If you’re new to shaving with double edge razor blades this is the razor for you.

Perfect razor

I have a been shave with a DE razor for three years, first with a Feather popular, then a Merkur 34. This razor is so far beyond those it isn't even funny. 1. Easy to load the blade. I haven't shaved with another machined razor, but there is no messing around to get it aligned. The Merkur was fussy, and the scallops on the safety bar make it hard to see when the blade is straight. Even the butterfly popular required some alignment tweaking. 2. No nicks and cuts. It is harder to cut yourself with this than with a cartridge razor. 3. Easy to get close shaves. If you are shaving with a couple days growth you will have to do a couple passes. The trapezoidal shape is a guide to the right angle. Even if you get it wrong, no blood. 4. Lots of blades work well. I tried this with Astra, Feather, Red Personna, and Wilkinson Sword blades. The difference between them was not noticeable with this razor. If you are new to double edge shaving, this is the razor you want. All the advice you may have read about face prep, good soap or cream, post shave is still valid, so do not ignore that. (It's valid for cartridge razors too.) I don't use anything fancy: Gillette Pure cream applied directly to a basic brush, then brushed on face, and Nivea post shave balm.
