Anyone familiar with HeadBlade knows that every standard HeadBlade model is the basis for a VERY special S4 Limited Edition. This week we are introducing two! They OFFICIALLY go on sale Monday, December 19th but will be pre-released via our newsletter! So sign up for the newsletter, which is located on the bottom of our homepage.
In November we brought you the all-new HeadBlade MOTO, featuring a free flowing ‘track ball’ and dual active suspension. It has lived up to the HeadBlade tradition of creating new and progressive designs that make headshaving even easier! The reviews have been amazing!
We are happy to introduce TWO specific Limited Edition S4 MOTO’s at this time; the S4 MOTO and the S4 MOTO Industrial. They are mechanically identical yet very different beasts.
The S4 MOTO, limited to a run of 3,000 units, fits with our traditional S4 variant of a standard HeadBlade; it is hand polished stainless steel and brings additional weight and torque for an extremely smooth shave. The S4 MOTO retails for $80.
The S4 MOTO Industrial is limited to ONLY 12 pieces and is unfinished, just as it came out of the wax cast. The back edge has been sanded and the unit has been quality tested to make sure there are no rough edges. But other than that, it is UNFINISHED.
Todd Greene, founder of HeadBlade and still lead designer, then used a hand-held engraver to sign his name and number each unit. Todd isn’t a professional engraver (by any means) but you will never see another S4 MOTO Industrial razor. Use it, display it, or save it as a collectors item; up to you! But 12 units will obviously sell out within a day or two. The S4 MOTO Industrial is $125.
Every few years we introduce a new Limited Edition HeadBlade and we’re proud to bring the S4 Lunar Eclipse to market in 2016!
We always include S4 in the nomenclature because it has significance; the “S4″ actually stands for “Signature Series Stainless Steel.” Back in the early 2000’s we had a list of athletes/actors/models/influencers who actively endorsed HeadBlade and we wanted to make a nice permanent ‘jewel’ type razor that elevated the HeadBlade brand and created something even more special. Even though we stopped using the “Signature Series” tag on endorsers (the number of Signature Series HeadBladers became very large!) we kept the S4 name and concept.
We created the first S4 in 2004, then followed in 2009 with the S4 Shadow, and again in 2012 we released the S4 Eclipse. When we introduced the all new ATX we had to make an S4 version of that and dubbed it the S4 Shark. So why would we follow up with a black version of the original design? Simply; demand.
Over the years we’ve had many ‘original’ HeadBladers, who love the Classic/Sport configuration of pushing, instead of pulling, ask us for one more Limited Edition of that model…as they missed their buying opportunity and want another!
Always set with a production run of 5,000 or less, every S4 Edition has sold out within two years. Each has been priced around $100.
The newest S4 Lunar Eclipse is set at a production run of 3,000 and we’ve lowered the price to $74.97 as we will not be offering it wholesale to any other accounts (hence we can lower the retail). It includes free shipping and a free HeadCase. This is for the loyal HeadBlader that prefers the ORIGINAL design over the ATX, and wants a razor handle that will last for many many years!
The S4 Lunar Eclipse comes with a free HeadCase and includes one HB3 blade.
HeadBlade is being featured on the premier episode of History Channel’s “Million Dollar Genius.” Follow the story of HeadBlade as it went from an idea to a product and created an all new niche known as “HeadCare!” The producers came out to HeadBlade facilities in Los Angeles on three separate occasions in 2015 and filmed HeadBlade owner Todd Greene, one of his best friends (and investor) Josh Borris, model maker extraordinaire Richard Jarel, and even went back to Maine to interview Todd’s father (and investor) Seth Greene. Tune in tonight at 10PM EST!!
