The Henson AL13 is the DE razor that is taking the shaving world by storm, its unique head angles the inserted DE razor blade to the perfect angle for shaving leaving no room for blade overexposure and therefore causing no blade irritation when shaving.
The Blade angle is precisely CND machined to tolerances as tight as 0.000508 mm, the result is an absolutely smooth and pleasant shave.
The head is uniquely designed with exit channels designed to expel hair and lather to ensure that there is no clogging. Hair and lather are expelled during the rinsing of the head which should be completed several times whilst shaving.
Plastic free and made from aerospace grade aluminium and a piece of tungsten (the screw hole in the base plate), your Henson AL13 razor will last a lifetime.
It is estimated that once you have purchased your Henson razor that shaving will cost you around £5 a year in replacement blades, match that against popular subscription services and watch in your mirror as the smile appear on your lathered face.
Transitioning from cartridge razor systems to DE shaving has now been made very simple.
The AL13 Medium are CNC Engineered Aluminium Razors which come in Mild or Medium aggression versions in multiple colours.
Supplied with 5 Astra Green Blades.
Made in Canada from aerospace grade aluminium to the AS9100 aerospace standards, the same standard used to create satellite components.
AL13 - Mild - .68 mm Blade Gap .003302mm Blade Exposure
AL13 - Medium - .85 mm Blade Gap and .005842mm Blade Exposure
The .85 mm and .68 blade gap, would be considered on the aggressive side, respectively. However, the nature of the Henson design mitigates some of the effects of the unwanted aggression. This is why Henson chose a higher aggression blade gap. This allows more of the positive benefits of the aggressive blade gap while the unwanted by products are a bit tamed by the head design. This is one way the razor achieves good safety and high shaving performance simultaneously.
