The Henson Shaving AL13 Steel blue medium razor is easily one of the best razors you can invest in. Made from aerospace-grade aluminum with an optimum shaving angle and minimal blade exposure is designed for a mild shave and reducing shaving irritation. The AL13 is fabricated using AS9100 aerospace standards the same aerospace processes used to produce components for satellites, the Mars Rover, and the International Space station. The accurate blade exposure combined with the innovative head design, higher aggression blade gap, and shaving angle is what makes the Henson aluminum razor an excellent razor and a shaving experience unlike other safety razors, consistently offering a smooth shave, every time.
Henson shaving out of Ontario Canada went back to the drawing board to redefine the shaving business and the wet shaving experience seeking to create the best razor, not the best safety razor business. The AL13 reimagines the relationship between the razor head and the blade support dissecting the kinetics of the perfect shave to a science. The Henson al13 blade support creates the most accurate blade exposure known to humankind. A DE razor that simultaneously is aggressive in nature but at the same time a truly mild shave. Ideal for any grown man, woman, or beginner to wet shaving that is looking for performance out of the box without suffering from the side effects of DE razors shaving.
While the rest of the competition builds in allowance for casting and painting, Henson Shaving required and achieved a remarkable less than five ten-thousandth of an inch (0.0005) tolerance on critical dimensions through the machining and anodizing process of the Henson al13. This means the blade sits straight every single shave.
The Henson aircraft aluminum razor Al13 razor feels nimble, lightweight weighing only 37 grams, yet in full control with the unique staggered diamond pattern knurling. The blade Gap in the 3 piece design head is set to .68mm while the exposure of the blade is kept at .001" to an exact degree of tolerance. Normally this would yield a razor on the aggressive side, however, the substance of the Henson Al13 design mitigates the consequences of the unwanted aggression by the engineering of the head. This is how the Henson Al13 razor achieves good safety and futuristic high shaving performance simultaneously. This level of detail and quality machining control allows the Henson Al13 to perform, unlike any other safety razors, shearing facial or finer hair precisely at skin level rather than cutting beneath the skin.

It took a few shaving before I stopped cutting my face up, but once I got the hang of it, it's the most amazing shave , I will never go back
This razor is very light weight with proper angle for shaving. I had a fantastic shaving result with this razor. I placed the order with Grown man Shave, but forgot to add it to my previous order. Grown man shave company was offering free shipment over $75 and this was razor was costing around $70, so requested them to waive of the shipment fee which got approved. Also this company explained everything nicely. I will definitely buy from them again.
