Well, its light, it looks good, and yes a close shave, however its very over priced for a piece of Aluminium. I found I could shave with it very quickly by standing under the shower, so no brush on shaving cream required. However I'm going back to electric shaving for the pure convenience, selling this online will more than pay for the electric shaver I bought for less. The FineShave website would not accept the discount code I had, only the Henson website itself would. Recommending only for the hardcore blade shavers, if you are on the fence, just get a new modern electric shaver.
I have arthritis in my hands so looking for shaver which is light and effective became my goal. After some research Henderson AL 13 seemed to fit that bill. Now that I own it, my research payed off - it does fit the bill. It's light, easy to use, simple to clean, and just a joy to use. For me not having extra pain in my hands and wrists after shaving has been an added bonus. I would recommend to anyone with or without arthritis.
My best razor so far. It's well worth a try. It's light and everything about it says precision.
This razor has been engineered superbly well. No nicks or rash whatsoever. Very happy with my purchase. Haven’t tried it with any other blades apart from the Derby’s. Highly recommended.
For a while I’ve been thinking of making the change from the supermarket throw away head razors to the double edge safety’s. Finally I’ve made the switch! I was concerned about cutting myself to shreds but this particular razor is great for this newbie. Great design, looks great. I have the medium and I think that’s a good start. I recommend thinking of how you’re going to dispose of the used razor blades. I bought a razor bank, which are cheap, worth it and safe. FineShave were awesome. Quick postage! Do it. Make the change!
I came to Frank around me wanting to look to going back to my grandfather's way of shaving, and I had already come across Henson Shaving's AL13. After a few questions around which would be the best style between Mild & Medium, decided to go the Medium path. Just got my kit arrive in time for my morning shave.
And can't stop raving about the finish at the end of the shave. Minimal irritation(which should soothe with more uses), Clean finish and super easy to use.
A BIG THUMBS UP from me. And Bye Bye Cartridge razors!
