Our President/CEO Todd Greene sucked it up today for charity and took the Ice Bucket Challenge. In celebration we made donations to our favorite charities, the Arthritis Foundation, the St. Baldrick's Foundation and the ALS Association. If you are so inclined, we challenge you to support a charity that is special to you! Money, time and just spreading the word are all great. Every little bit helps!
Today’s video of the day comes to us from Team HeadBlade’s very own Mike “The Marine” Richman. Mike may like to rock hair and a beard during training, but he always shaves down when it’s fight week. Mike decided to make a little Instagram video showing his transformation…what a difference! Mike’s a true HeadBlader, as he was sure to use HeadShed first, then went to work with HeadSlick and the HeadBlade ATX.
Mike is fighting Goiti Yamauchi this Saturday in Bellator 120, live and free on Spike TV. Best of luck Mike!
April's letter of the month comes from Michael A.
I'm a Canadian living in Taipei, Taiwan. I heard about your product around Christmas when I was watching Inside MMA and Bas Rutten recommended the Headblade. I finally got around to ordering it for myself. I've ordered a lot of things online from North America recently as it's hard to find clothes etc. to fit me properly over here. I was very, very impressed and happy with how fast I received my order from Headblade.com. I'm extremely satisfied with the products I ordered (the ATX and the Head Slick shave cream)! Great products and great quality! I will be a customer for life! Has made my shaving easy and enjoyable, Thank you Headblade Team!
Thank you Michael! Whether it's "HeadBlade is the best thing since sliced coconuts" or "This thing couldn't shave a lemon", we value your feedback. HeadBladers around the world send us stories, product reviews, pictures and more…we value them all! If you want to send us your feedback, send us a message from our support page.

Football season is almost upon us, and that means bacon, beers and friendship (recipe for Mac's bacon wrapped Jalapenos below). It also means it's time for the 3rd Annual HeadBlade Survivor League Challenge! This is one of the easiest challenges we have, all you have to do is pick one winner each week, straight up. Once you pick a team they are off limits for the rest of the season. Choose wisely! 1st place will get $100 in HeadBlade.com store credit. 2nd and 3rd will receive $50 and $25, respectively.

That's it! Don't forget to make your pick each week. Now to the bacon! Make these, you won't be disappointed. This is our Operations Manager Mac's personal recipe, and was featured in Tony Caputo's "NO! I'm Watching Football: The Gridiron Grub Cookbook"
Mac's Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Peppers
30 Jalapeno peppers
5 packages cream cheese, softened
2 packs basil, chopped
2 heads garlic, chopped
30 strips bacon
With a knife, slice the peppers below the cap down the middle, lengthwise. Remove seeds (wear gloves for this…believe us.)
Mix together cream cheese, basil and garlic.
Fill peppers with mixture (again, gloves!). Wrap one strip of bacon around each pepper and secure with toothpick.
Grill or broil for about 40 minutes.
Enjoy your handiwork. Delicious!
Happy 4th of July! If you're reading this that means we're probably poolside with a margarita in one hand and a bacon-wrapped hot dog in the other (Do we want onions? Duh!). Our office will be closed on Thursday, July 4th for Independence Day. We will be back in the office bright and early Friday morning, *possibly* nursing a bit of a headache at 9AM PST.
We love you, America.
We are on Instagram at long last! If you would like to add us just search "HeadBlade". Those that don't have smartphones can check out our account at http://instagram.com/headblade.
