The Henson AL13 puts an end to shaving irritation and cuts, while also making your skin feel comfortable and smooth. Henson created this razor to give you a whole new shaving experience, unlike any other safety razor.

The MILD version has slightly less blade exposure and a smaller blade gap than most other safety razors. This allows for a very mild and smooth shave, even with sensitive skin.

We think it's best for :

  • Sensitive to Normal Skin
  • Lighter beard growth with finer hairs
  • Trimming Beard Line
  • Body Shaving
  • Smooth & comfortable shave with little blade feel

  • For 'Very Sensitive Skin' it's best to use some pre-shave products to have that extra layer of protection
    (pre-shave oil hydrates the skin & protects it from cuts, while pre-shave cream softens the beard)
  • Thicker Beards or shaving every few days requires a few extra strokes with the Mild AL13,
    the Medium or Aggressive version might be a better option if you like a close shave or have a coarse beard

  • All Henson safety razors are compatible with any standard double-edge (DE) razor blade
    Our suggestion for the Henson Mild is a sharper blade like Gillette Nacet, Gillette Platinum, Feather, Kai, Dovo, ...

Designed and manufactured with extreme precision in mind. Henson has applied aerospace processes to achieve remarkable low tolerances on critical dimensions through the machining and anodizing process.

The blade support creates the most accurate blade exposure on the market, which means you can be ensured that each razor holds the blade at the correct angle and gap to give you the perfect shave.

Manufactured in the same facility that produces components for the Mars Rover and the International Space Station, this razor is durable and should last for many years of worry-free shaves.

What this means for you is a noticeably better shave that just feels different. It truly is one of a kind.

About Henson: A Function First Approach To Shaving. These days, it feels like many product design choices (especially around shaving) are made from a profit-first position. However, at Henson, every aspect of our design was chosen because we felt it was the best for the function of shaving. Not for profit. We then leveraged our 20+ years of aerospace machining experience to make it.

Great product and shave

I've always shaved using Gilette cartridge razors (Fusion Power most recently) and liked how easy shaving was, but hated the cost of the blades and the plastic waste. I was nervous about switching to a safety razor as I thought shaving would be trickier and not as good finish. But it isn't, the shave is as good if not better and it is no harder (it does take a little longer but this may change with practise). What is more the AL13 is such a beautiful bit of engineering to hold and use.

I’ve always been a bit scared of safety razors given the amount of blade showing. I feel quite comfortable with this one and it was an easy transition from a cartridge razor. The shaving experience is easily better than a cartridge razor. I used to shave every other day because of razor burn, but it’s essentially gone. Could I have had the same results with a cheaper safety razor, possibly, but this purchase will still save me money within a year. They build quality is fantastic (as you would expect) and I really think it will last forever
