Henson Shaving AL13 Aggressive Gray Safety Razor

12 reviews

The Henson Shaving AL13 gray machined aggressive DE razor is out of this world literally. Made from aerospace-grade aluminum with an optimum shaving angle and minimal blade exposure, it's designed for an aggressive 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 are what make 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 wet shaving experience unlike any other, reimagining the relationship between the razor head and the blade support by studying the kinetics of the perfect shave obsessively. The Henson al13 safety razor 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 comfortable 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 al13 safety 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 .98mm, while the exposure of the blade is kept at .0036" to an exact degree of tolerance. 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. 

Whether you are currently purchasing disposable razors and razor cartridges at the drug store or have signed up for a subscription program, investing in any Henson razor will have you seeing cost savings within the first year. On average, a daily wet shaver will get a month's worth of shaving with 5 blades that are included. Additional blades can be purchased here HK-compatible 100-piece bulk pack. With this bulk pack, you will enjoy 2 to 3 years' worth of cost savings!

    Great razor!

    I’ve been using this razor for over a week now and love it. The “aggressive” blade profile provides for a clean shave without irritation. So far, it seems like I can get 6 shaves from one blade before I notice the blade tugging a bit. I will not be going back to disposable razors.

    Love this

    Kinda weird shaving with a double edge blade like my dad did years ago but I love the feel after the shave & have used it every morning since I got it & the blades. By the way when do you change blades
