    Today’s SOTD:


    Razor: Henson AL13
    Brush Turn N Shave Tuxedo
    Soap: Black Ship Black Beard
    AS Balm: Sudsy Soapery Pumpkin Spice
    Blade: Feather

    First shave with the Henson tonight and I wasn’t disappointed.

    I loaded it with a Feather and it mowed down my stubble with ease. This is not as mild a razor as I thought it would have been, based upon some reports I have read.

    I deliberately chose a Feather as this is the blade I prefer to use when testing razors for the first time.

    The razor has a very slightly blade forward feel to me and the characteristic drag of aluminium was present. It was really easy to find the correct angle and the result was a very enjoyable and close shave.

    It’s clear that a lot of thought and design has gone into this razor and the addition of a tungsten insert on the underside of the baseplate where the handle connects is an inspired choice.

    The fit of the razor is excellent with very tight tolerances and rigid blade clamping. The finish of the razor is very good (the only thing that lets it down slightly is some uneven anodising on the side of the baseplate).

    I have come away from this shave having the same feeling I had when I used my first Blackbird. Everything felt spot on in terms of the design and efficiency of the razor and it feels like a very cleverly designed piece of shaving equipment.

    Great pic and review Andy. I've been reading up on the Henson, but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    Thanks James.

    I’d definitely recommend giving one a try - I was surprised at how good a shave it gave for an aluminium razor.
