We love this review from Mark Rosengarten over at The Gadgeteer:
“Words cannot describe how much I detest my thin, sparse hair. […] So what do I do? I shave my head. This is not so easy to do by yourself and with a stick razor it’s fairly difficult. I searched for a different way to shave my pate and found this little beauty. The HeadBlade ATX is a cross between an ATV and Zamboni, with a rubber finger loop at the top and sporty wheels that glide the contraption on your head.
It’s possible to shave the head very quickly with this. The first time I tried it (this afternoon) it took my half the time it usually does. I will get faster as I get more used to this novel way of erasing my scalp.”
Welcome to the HeadBlade family Mark! It will only get easier (and faster) from here on out. Be sure to check out the full review at The Gadgeteer.
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!

Today we pay tribute to Kickboxer, Author and all-around Rad Dude Mark "FightShark" Miller. We met Mark shortly after he underwent open heart surgery back in 2007. From the start we had a great connection with him, not only because he sports a shaved head, but because his attitude and spirit are truly inspirational.
After his surgery Mark began on a tremendous journey with a singular singular focus: getting back in the ring to compete. In 2011, after years of rehab and training, Mark's hard work paid off when he earned a knockout win over Russian heavyweight Nikolaj Falin at United Glory 14 (the precursor to GLORY). Mark's KO win marked the first (and likely last) time any fighter has returned to fight professionally following open heart surgery. Inspirational to say the least!
Mark's life has been a rollercoaster since his triumph in 2011. Late last year Mark was hospitalized due to complications with his CHD and kidney failure. He is uninsurable due to his "pre-existing conditions" and facing a mountain of medical bills. One thing is for sure, you cannot keep FightShark down!
