ok so I got my best ATX shave last night. I did NOT put it on like a ring but instead held it like a Hotwheels car. for some reason that worked way better! very nice shave. I do always use my Mach 3 to get the odd spots I missed and around the ears but there were few last night. for what its worth maybe go the Hotwheels approach?

I tried the ATX but preferred the Push aspect of the Sport

I found that the best way to use the headblade for me was to bin it! lol

Hello this is my first post, I'm 24 years old and I have been shaving my head since February 2014. I have been using the Head Blade from the very beginning and I shave my head either every other day or every day. Everything was fine until a couple months ago.

When I shave I always start from front to back with the grain and then I only need to shave against the grain the back of my head and the sides. I have been following the same technique and I always was able to get a perfect super smooth shave. I like to keep my head as smooth as humanely possible. Recently though when I go to shave against the grain starting from neck going up I can not get a smooth shave anymore even with a new blade!!!

It seems that when I shave against the grain with Head-blade now it leaves patches of fuzz and it's really hard to shave them of because I have to press hard and it irritates my skin.

I'm confused because I was able to get a great shave in 15 minutes but now it takes forever if I want to shave against the grain so I had to just shave with the grain but I don't like it because it's not super smooth all over :(

Anybody had the same problem?

Welcome to the board! What kind of shaving cream do you use and what's your shave prep method?

My experience is that the HB Sport gives a closer shave than the ATX.  Sport is still available online, but not in stores.  Both are the same price.  You can get a 20% discount if you shop via the HB ads on this site.  I'm told using those referral links also helps SBG.

Hello and thanks, I don't wanna sound cheap but right now I'musing Barbasol. In the past I have used the Gillette creams and Aveo but I did not really see any difference between the. My pre-shave prep consists of just washing my head under warm water for a couple of minutes and then rubbing the shave cream on to it.

I will probably get the sport to try it out since I had the ATX since the very begging but I don't think it's worn out or anything it should't be.

I've been using the HeadBlade for only a few weeks,(my first time using it),and I absolutely love it. Before,I was using clippers and shaving my head every two weeks or at the end of the month. When I decided to shave closer to the skin,I was looking at women's razors,and was pretty close to buying one when I came across HeadBlade on Facebook. I'm so glad I bought it,and I'm the proud owner of two HeadBlades,and planning to buy their Limited Editions pretty soon.
