THE HENSON AL13-M SAFETY RAZOR
Tthe Henson AL13-M is a medium razor and has slightly more blade exposure and a wider blade gap than the regular Henson AL13. This allows the medium to handle thicker and longer hair.
The AL13-M is able to handle thicker and longer hair better, whereas the AL13, is built for a milder shave for those with sensitive skin, prone to bumps, or having new stubble they get rid of more frequently.
The AL13-M is best for those that prefer a more aggressive, traditional safety razor shave.

DESIGNED WITHOUT COMPROMISE
Making parts that last is in the DNA of the Henson maker family. But beyond the longevity, every Henson razor is built with precision at its core. Why? Because when you can limit the movement of a blade, and present it to your skin at a consistent angle, the result is a remarkably safe and smooth shave.
This razor is only possible to produce because of the lessons learned from aerospace manufacturing the last 20 years.
Manufactured at The Henson family’s aerospace facility in Ontario, Canada, their razor is built with the same AS9100 aerospace standards required to create satellite components.
EXTREME PRECISION MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
The blade exposure and blade angle are precisely machined to tolerances as tight as +/-0.00025" to provide a close shave with little, if any, irritation.
At 1.3 oz., this razor is ultra-lightweight and extremely agile, yet completely proficient, and is a joy to use. It is economically machined and coated with Type II anodize, which gives this razor the look you want with the protection the metal needs.
SHAVING IS A GEOMETRY PROBLEM
Don't worry, we've done the math so you don't have to.
With a blade that only sticks out roughly 3/4 the thickness of a human hair (0.0023" or 58 microns), this razor eliminates all the unnecessary blade exposure. This razor also incorporates the optimum shaving angle into the head design. By focusing on repeatability, it virtually eliminates any learning curve associated with the AL13-mild razor. AL13-Medium is practically identical, but with more blade exposure. People used to using a multi-blade cartridge razor will be surprised how easy the transition is.
BUY ONCE, USE FOREVER
Henson razors are machined to last. Buy once, use forever, and pass it down from generation to generation.
This razor works with any standard double edge blade you can buy almost anywhere - local supermarkets, shaving shops or online. No subscriptions. No proprietary blades.
With blades that cost pennies, most people will spend $2-3 per year on blades. We sell blades we feel work the best in single boxes or a box of 100 blades. 100 blades at around $10 will last most people 2-3 years.
EASY TO RINSE
No clogging with this safety razor. Engineered with wide side flow openings, long hair rinses away preventing clogs and making cleaning much easier.
