Next: Blade Loading (Including Safe Handling)

With the shave setting selected and your X1 Razor assembled, you're ready to move on to the next step: blade loading. In the following lesson, you'll learn how to handle the blades safely and how to load them into your X1 Razor.


Blade Loading

Blade Loading

Loading a blade into the X1 Razor is a crucial step in ensuring a smooth and effective shave. An improperly installed blade can lead to uneven shaves or nicks. The X1 Razor offers two methods for blade loading: the Auto Way, which uses the injector blade magazine/dispenser, and the Manual Way, for those who prefer hands-on control. Both methods are designed for safety and convenience.

Method A: AUTO WAY

The Auto Way leverages the X1's design to function with most commercially available injector magazines. Follow these instructions to load a fresh blade without handling the blades with your bare hands:

  • STEP 01: Hold the razor in your left hand and the blade magazine in your right hand.

  • STEP 02: Insert the key of the blade magazine in the slot designed on the right side of the razor. (Image: Inserting blade magazine)

  • STEP 03: Pull the lever of the blade magazine to the extreme right, then push it to the left until the fresh blade is fully loaded into the razor.

  • STEP 04: If you are replacing an existing blade, the old blade will push out from the other end. You can safely dispose of it using the empty slot provided in the blade magazine. If you are loading an empty razor, your razor is ready to be used after step 3.

  • NOTE: Please ensure that the blade is fully inserted into the razor. If it's not positioned properly, you can manually push the blade all the way through to ensure the blade sits correctly.


While the X1 is designed to function flawlessly with an injector blade magazine, the design also allows for a simple and seamless manual process:

  • STEP 01: Push the bottom part of the shave setting with slight force and detach it from the razor body.

  • STEP 02: If the razor was without a blade to begin with, move on to step 3. If the razor contained an old blade, follow step 1 in a controlled manner to avoid accidental injury.

  • STEP 03: Take a fresh blade from the blade magazine by pulling and pushing the lever without inserting it into the razor.

  • STEP 04: Safely hold the new dispensed blade and place it on top of the shave setting. Make sure the cutting edge of the blade is facing the exposed side of the razor.

  • STEP 05: Align the shave setting with the razor body. The natural force of the magnets will immediately attach the razor body to the shave setting.

  • NOTE: The manual process is extremely safe as long as you do not rush and do it in a controlled manner.

  • 🌟 PRO TIP: The manual process is most effective when you may want to quickly clean the insides of your razor during or after the shave. This process allows you to reuse the existing blade.


Loading the blade into your X1 Razor is a simple process whether you choose the Auto Way or the Manual Way. Both methods are designed with safety and convenience in mind, so you can focus on the perfect shave.

Next: Tips for Safe Handling

Get ready to explore further safety tips and best practices for handling your X1 Razor in the next lesson.


Tips for Safe Handling

Tips for Safe Handling

Ensuring safety during every phase of shaving is crucial, not only for an effective shave but also to prevent injuries. With the X1 Razor's advanced design and features, users are equipped with a reliable tool. Still, it's essential to be aware of some general safety guidelines for an optimal shaving experience.

01 Handle with Care

  • Always grasp the X1 Razor by its handle, not by the blade or blade-loading mechanism.

  • While the X1 Razor is designed with user safety in mind, careless handling can still lead to nicks or cuts.

02 Storing the Razor
  • Store your X1 Razor in a dry place when not in use. Avoid keeping it in damp environments like directly in the shower area.

  • Ensure the razor is out of reach of children and pets.

03 Changing the Blade

  • Always change the blade over a counter or sink to ensure you have a secure grip and to prevent dropping.

  • Use the Auto Way for blade loading to avoid direct contact with the blade.

  • If using the Manual Way, always handle blades from their sides, not the sharp edges.

04 Maintenance and Cleaning
  • Clean your razor after every use to remove hair, soap, and other residues.

  • Disassemble the razor periodically for a thorough cleaning, ensuring all components are completely dry before reassembly.

  • Inspect the blade for any signs of damage or rust. If in doubt, replace it with a new blade.

05 Mind the Shave Setting
  • Ensure the shave setting is correctly aligned with the razor body before shaving.

  • Adjust the shave setting according to your hair type and comfort, but always make adjustments when the razor is not in contact with the skin.

06 Stay Alert
  • Never use the X1 Razor while distracted. Focus on the task at hand to prevent accidental injuries.

  • If the razor feels different or seems to tug at the hair, inspect the blade and replace if necessary.

Safe handling of the X1 Razor is straightforward with the proper precautions. By adhering to these guidelines, users can ensure a smooth, comfortable shave every time.

03 - Comprehensive Shaving Guide


Shaving Techniques for Different Needs

Shaving Techniques for Different Needs

Using the X1 Razor is a transformative experience due to its versatility. With three distinct shave settings, you have the flexibility to choose the technique that best suits your skin type and desired result. But before we delve into these techniques, let's discuss an essential aspect of shaving: the angle.

The Right Shaving Angle

  • Angle: Maintain an angle of about 30 degrees between the blade and your skin. This angle allows the blade to cut the hair efficiently without being too aggressive.

  • Guidance: Let the razor's head fully contact your skin. As you begin to shave, tilt the handle until you feel the blade engaging the hairs. This is your optimal angle.

01 Gentle Glide Technique
Recommended Shave Setting: Use the X1 Razor's "Sensitive" setting.
Ideal for: Those with delicate, easily irritated skin or for individuals prone to razor bumps.

  • Prep Your Skin: Always start with freshly washed and hydrated skin. Use a mild cleanser and warm water.

  • Shave WTG (With The Grain): This reduces the chances of nicks, cuts, and ingrown hairs.

  • Gentle Strokes: Use light, short strokes without pressing too hard. Let the weight of the X1 Razor do the work.

02 Balanced Finish Technique

Recommended Shave Setting: Adjust your X1 Razor to the "Comfort" setting.

Ideal for: Daily shavers seeking a balance between closeness and comfort.


  • Pre-Shave Routine: Apply a thick layer of quality shaving cream. Allow it to sit for a minute to soften the hair and lubricate the skin.

  • Mix the Directions: Start by shaving WTG. For a closer shave on the second pass, go XTG (Across The Grain).

  • Rinse Frequently: Regularly rinse the blade under running water to prevent clogging.

03 Precision Cut Technique
Recommended Shave Setting: Opt for the X1 Razor's "Ultra-Close" setting.
Ideal for: Achieving the smoothest possible finish for special occasions.


  • Thorough Preparation: Hydrate the skin with warm water. Apply a pre-shave oil followed by a rich lather of shaving cream.

  • Three-Pass Shave: Start by shaving WTG. For the second pass, go XTG. Conclude with a careful pass ATG (Against The Grain).

  • Taut Skin: Gently stretch the skin with your free hand, providing a flat surface for the razor.

  • Re-lubricate: Before each pass, ensure the skin is adequately lubricated.

Whether you're seeking a gentle touch, a balanced finish, or a precision cut, the X1 Razor is your tool of choice. It's essential to remember that while we've suggested specific shave settings for each technique, these are mere recommendations. The X1 Razor is designed with your unique needs in mind. Listen to your skin, understand the desired outcome, and feel free to use any technique with the shave setting that suits you best. By combining the knowledge of these techniques with the versatile settings, you'll truly elevate your shaving experience.

Up Next: The journey doesn't end post-shave. Dive into the essential steps of after-shave care in our next lesson!


After-Shave Care and Maintenance

After-Shave Care and Maintenance

Once you've mastered the art of shaving, maintaining your skin and your razor becomes essential. Proper after-shave care not only ensures healthy skin but also extends the lifespan and efficiency of your X1 Razor. This lesson covers the steps you should take post-shave to maintain optimal skin health and razor performance.

01 After-Shave Skincare

  • Cool Down: Start by rinsing your face with cold water. This helps to close pores and soothe the skin after the heat of a shave.

  • Apply an After-Shave Balm or Lotion: It’s essential to moisturize post-shave to hydrate and soothe the skin. Opt for a product that's alcohol-free to prevent stinging and drying out your skin.

  • Avoid Irritants: For the first few hours after shaving, avoid using products that contain alcohol or other skin irritants. This ensures that your freshly shaved skin remains free from redness or burning sensations.

02 Razor Maintenance

  • Rinse Thoroughly: Post-shave, rinse your X1 Razor under warm water. This helps to clear out any hair, skin, or soap remnants that might be trapped between the blades or within the razor's body.

  • Drying: Shake off any excess water and dry the razor gently with a soft cloth. Avoid using abrasive materials which could damage the finish of the razor.

  • Blade Replacement: Even though the X1 Razor is built for durability, blades will eventually dull with time. Depending on your shaving frequency and hair type, consider changing your blade after every 7-11 shaves for the best performance.

  • Safe Storage: Store your X1 Razor in a cool, dry place. Avoid leaving it in wet or humid environments like the shower, as this can expedite the dulling of the blade and promote bacterial growth.

03 Regular Razor Cleaning

While daily rinsing is essential, you should also periodically deep-clean your razor. Use warm water and a gentle soap or cleaning solution to clean every part. This ensures optimal performance and maximizes the lifespan of your razor.

Just as a painter cleans their brushes after each masterpiece, so should you tend to your skin and X1 Razor after every shave. Embracing proper after-shave care and maintenance rituals will ensure that every shave is as smooth as the first and will keep your skin in top condition.

Up Next: Every tool and technique has its quirks. Learn how to troubleshoot common issues in our next lesson!


Troubleshooting Common Issues

Troubleshooting Common Issues

Every tool can occasionally present challenges. The X1 Razor is a premium tool, but understanding potential issues ensures that every shave remains exceptional. Let's guide you through troubleshooting some of the most frequent challenges.


Uneven Shave or Tugging Sensation

Uneven Shave or Tugging Sensation

An uneven shave or the feeling that the razor is tugging at your skin can be both uncomfortable and unsatisfactory. This could be due to various reasons.

01 Damaged Blade

Blades can be damaged if not loaded correctly, especially if the blade drags along the blade stop during loading.
Solution: If you suspect a damaged blade, replace it. Ensure the blade edge doesn't drag along the blade stop during insertion. Using the Manual Way of blade loading can further prevent this issue.

02 Wrong Shaving Angle

An incorrect shaving angle can result in an uneven shave.
Solution: Ensure that the razor is at the right angle to your skin—typically around 30 degrees.

03 Dull or Clogged Blade:

A blade that's lost its sharpness or is obstructed can lead to tugging and uneven shaving.
Solution: Ensure your blade is sharp, clean, and free from obstructions. Rinse the razor more frequently during your shave.


Skin Irritation or Razor Burn

Skin Irritation or Razor Burn

Skin irritation after shaving is a common problem and can result from several factors, including skin type, shaving technique, or the condition of your blade.

Causes and Solutions:

01 Excessive Pressure

Applying too much pressure can irritate the skin.
Solution: Let the weight of the razor do the work. Avoid pressing too hard.

02 Using a Dull Blade

A dull blade requires more passes and pressure, leading to skin irritation.
Solution: Replace the blade regularly and ensure it's sharp and free from debris.


Nicks and Cuts

Nicks and Cuts

While small nicks and cuts can occasionally happen, frequent occurrences can be a sign that your shaving technique needs a bit of refining or your equipment needs a check.

Causes and Solutions:

01 Rushing the Shave

Shaving hastily can often lead to mistakes and accidents.
Solution: Take your time, especially around the tricky areas like the chin and upper lip.

02 Improper Skin Stretching

Not stretching the skin enough can cause the razor to catch.
Solution: Use your free hand to stretch the skin, ensuring a smooth surface for the razor to glide upon.


Razor Doesn't Glide Smoothly

Razor Doesn’t Glide Smoothly

A smooth glide is essential for a comfortable shave. If your razor is not moving smoothly across the skin, it can make for a challenging shave.

Causes and Solutions:

01 Inadequate Lubrication

Not using enough lubrication can cause the razor to skip or drag.
Solution: Always ensure that you use sufficient shaving cream or gel, and it’s well-lathered before application.

04 - Customizing your shave experience


Understanding Shave Settings in Detail

Understanding Shave Settings in Detail

Achieving the perfect shave is a balance between technique and technology. The X1 Razor incorporates advanced design elements that cater to your unique shaving needs. Among the standout features are the adjustable shave settings, which we’ll explore in detail, demystifying the science behind blade exposure and blade gap.

The Mechanics of Shave Settings

At the heart of the X1 Razor's versatility lies its ability to adjust both the blade exposure and the blade gap. To put it simply:

  • Blade Exposure: Refers to the amount of the blade that's exposed beyond the razor's safety bar. Greater exposure generally leads to a more aggressive shave, while less exposure offers a gentler touch.

  • Blade Gap: Refers to the space between the blade and the safety bar. A larger gap provides room for thicker facial hair to enter and be cut, while a smaller gap is more restrictive and provides a milder shave.

These adjustments are crucial in tailoring the shaving experience to your specific needs and preferences.

01 Sensitive Setting
Offers minimal blade exposure and a tight blade gap, ensuring a gentler contact with the skin.

  • Minimized risks of razor burns and irritations.

  • Light touch ensures a soothing experience.

Recommended for:
  • Those new to shaving.

  • Days when your skin feels particularly sensitive.

02 Comfort Setting

Strikes a balance with moderate blade exposure and gap, making it a go-to setting for regular shaving routines.

  • Ideal for daily shavers.

  • Achieves a close shave without feeling too aggressive.

Recommended for:
  • Those who shave daily or every other day.

  • People seeking consistent comfort.

03 Ultra-Close Setting
Maximizes blade exposure and features a more pronounced blade gap, targeting each hair with precision for a highly efficient shave.


  • Achieves a baby-smooth finish.

  • Best suited for thicker, coarser facial hair.

Recommended for:
  • Individuals with thicker beards.

  • When desiring the longest duration between shaves.

Understanding the delicate dance between blade exposure and blade gap is pivotal in making the most of your X1 Razor. These adjustable settings, deeply rooted in the mechanics of the razor, are more than just numbers; they're your key to a customized and unparalleled shaving experience.

Finding Your Perfect Shave Routine

Finding Your Perfect Shave Routine

A perfect shave is as much about the routine as it is about the razor. Each individual's skin type, facial hair density, and personal preferences play a role in defining that ideal regimen. This lesson offers guidance to help you determine your unique shaving routine using the X1 Razor.

Understanding Your Skin and Hair

Before setting up a shaving routine, it’s vital to understand your skin type and the nature of your facial hair.

  • Skin Type: Dry, oily, sensitive, or combination. Knowing this will help you choose suitable pre-shave, shaving, and post-shave products.

  • Facial Hair: Coarse or fine, dense or sparse, fast or slow-growing. This will determine the frequency of your shaves and the setting you might prefer.

Developing a Routine

  • Frequency

    • Daily Shavers: If you have fast-growing or dense facial hair, or simply prefer the feel of a fresh shave each morning, consider the 'Comfort' setting for a daily routine.

    • Alternate-Day Shavers: Those with moderately growing hair can opt for every other day, possibly using the 'Ultra-Close' setting for a prolonged smooth finish.

    • Weekly Shavers: For those who enjoy sporting a stubble look occasionally or have slow-growing hair, the 'Ultra-Close' setting once a week should suffice.

  • Preparation: Always start with clean and moist skin. A warm shower or a hot towel can soften the facial hair, making it easier to shave. Applying a quality pre-shave oil or lotion can further prep the skin.

  • Shaving Cream/Gel: Invest in a good quality shaving cream or gel that suits your skin type. It should offer a thick lather to provide a protective cushion between the blade and your skin.

  • Technique: As discussed in previous lessons, ensure you maintain the correct angle with the razor. Always start with the 'With The Grain' (WTG) technique, especially if you're new to shaving or using the X1 Razor.

  • Post-Shave: Rinse your face with cold water to close the pores. Apply an alcohol-free, moisturizing after-shave to soothe and hydrate the skin.

Experiment and Evolve

No two faces are the same, and neither are their perfect shave routines. Start with the guidelines provided, but feel free to tweak and adjust as you understand your skin and facial hair better. Remember, the best routine is the one that feels right to you.

Finding your perfect shave routine is a journey of understanding your unique facial features and experimenting with various techniques and settings. Embrace the process and relish the results each time you look in the mirror, feeling confident and refreshed.

Advanced Tips and Techniques

Advanced Tips and Techniques

Even seasoned shavers can benefit from learning a few advanced techniques, as there’s always room for improvement in the quest for the perfect shave. This lesson will arm you with expert tips and techniques, helping you make the most out of every shave with your X1 Razor.

Mastering The Three Passes

  • First Pass (WTG - With The Grain) - Your first pass should always be with the grain of your beard growth. This takes off the bulk of the hair without causing much irritation.

  • Second Pass (XTG - Across The Grain): This pass is generally perpendicular to the direction of your beard growth. It offers a closer shave than the WTG pass without the potential irritation of an ATG pass.

  • Third Pass (ATG - Against The Grain): For those seeking an ultra-close shave, the third pass against the grain can deliver that baby-smooth finish. However, if you have sensitive skin or are prone to ingrown hairs, it's advisable to skip this pass.

Optimal Blade Angle

While we touched upon the importance of maintaining the right angle in previous lessons, mastering it can substantially enhance your shaving experience. The optimal angle is approximately 30°.

Tip: Start with the top of the razor head touching your skin and the handle pointing straight out. Slowly tilt the handle downward until the blade just contacts the skin. This will be close to the optimal angle.

Stretching The Skin

By pulling your skin taut, you can provide a smoother surface for the blade, making it easier to achieve a close shave without nicks or irritation. Use your free hand to gently stretch the skin in the opposite direction you're shaving.

Mapping Your Beard Growth

Understanding the direction of your beard growth can significantly improve your shaving technique. Spend some time feeling your stubble with your fingers to determine the growth pattern. Remember, not all areas of your face will have hair growing in the same direction.

Changing The Blade

An advanced user knows when it's time to change the blade. If you start to feel tugging or if the blade doesn't glide as effortlessly, it's likely time to swap it out for a fresh one. Keep in mind our earlier advice about getting 7-11 shaves per blade for optimal performance.

Post-Shave Cool Down

After your shave, consider using an alum block or witch hazel as an astringent. These can help soothe the skin, prevent razor burn, and provide immediate feedback on your technique. If it stings a lot, you may have used too much pressure or had the wrong angle during your shave.

Shaving is as much an art as it is a science. By mastering these advanced techniques and understanding your face better, you can elevate your shaving experience to new heights. It's a journey of continuous learning and refining, making each shave better than the last.

05 - Blade and Essential Accessories


The Heart of the Shave: Injector Blades

The Heart of the Shave: Injector Blades

Before diving into the intricacies of the X1 Injector Blades, it's essential to appreciate the rich history and evolution behind this game-changing design. Your daily shave isn't merely an act but an experience steeped in history and innovation.

A Glimpse into History: The Birth of Injector Blades

The tale of the injector blade is deeply rooted in the ingenuity of one man, Col. Jacob Schick. In the early 20th century, Schick, a passionate innovator in the world of shaving, identified the need for a safer, more efficient blade-changing system. In 1926, he patented the design for the injector blade, forever revolutionizing the shaving industry. This wasn't just a new blade on the block, but a transformative approach to men's grooming. The design and mechanism, with its emphasis on safety and efficiency, quickly became a favorite. Over the decades, while many shaving technologies came and went, the injector blade's design and functionality have endured, bearing testament to Schick's vision and the blade's unmatched efficacy.

The Non-Proprietary Advantage and Cost Efficiency
When it comes to cost, the X1 Injector Blades stand head and shoulders above competitors, offering incredible value. Here's a simple breakdown:
  • Cost of one blade dispenser: $12

  • Number of blades per dispenser: 20

  • Cost per blade: $12/20 = $0.60

  • Assuming an average of 9 shaves per blade (taking the midpoint of 7-11 shaves), the cost per shave translates to: $0.60/9 = $0.067, or just under 7 cents per shave.

If you shave daily, annually, this amounts to a mere $24.55! Comparing this with the typical multi-blade cartridge refills, which can cost anywhere between $2 to $6 per cartridge (lasting about a week), you're looking at yearly costs ranging from $104 to $312. The savings with the X1 system are evident.

Why Opt for Injector Blades?

  • Ease of Loading

    The unique design of injector blades means you can eliminate the cumbersome and often unsafe task of manually handling and loading blades. The injector mechanism ensures a swift, safe, and precise loading process every time.

  • Consistency

    Forget about the surprises of uneven blade sharpness. Injector blades maintain a uniform sharpness across the blade, ensuring that each shave feels just as smooth and effective as the first.

  • Safety

    The injector system is designed with user safety at its core. By reducing direct contact with the blade, the chances of accidental nicks and cuts are significantly minimized.

  • Longevity and Smoothness

    One of the standout features of injector blades is their notable thickness. Being twice as thick as a standard double-edged (DE) blade, they offer double the shaves. This added thickness doesn’t just translate to longevity but also ensures each shave is smoother and more comfortable, resulting in a consistently close shave without irritations.

The X1 Injector Blades bring together a rich history, cutting-edge innovation, and unparalleled performance. Embracing the X1 system is not just choosing a shave but opting for a legacy of quality and the promise of an impeccable shaving experience every single time.


Blade Care, Storage, and Disposal

Blade Care, Storage, and Disposal

The Importance of Blade Care

A sharp and well-maintained blade is crucial not only for a close, smooth shave but also for ensuring your skin remains irritation-free. Proper blade care can extend the life of each blade, offering more consistent and comfortable shaves over time.

Storing Your Blade: Keep it Dry and Safe

  • Dry After Use: Always pat your blade dry with a soft cloth or tissue after use. This prevents any water or moisture build-up which can lead to rust or dulling of the blade edge.

  • Safe Storage: When not in use, store your razor in a dry place. An upright position, like in the Hype Razor Stand, allows the blade to air out and minimizes moisture retention.

  • Away from Humidity: Avoid keeping your blade in damp places like directly in the shower. Humidity can decrease the longevity of the blade.

Disposal: Safety First

  • Using the Injector Blade Magazine: Our provided injector blade magazine comes with a designated slot specifically designed for disposing of used blades safely. Always use this slot to ensure that no one accidentally gets cut, especially if you have kids or pets.

  • Recycle When Possible: Check local recycling rules. Some municipalities allow for the recycling of used blades, but they must be safely stored in a hard container.

  • Avoid Loose Disposal: Never throw away loose blades in the trash. This poses a risk to sanitation workers and others who might come in contact with your waste.

Blade care and proper disposal are not just about maintaining the quality of your shave but also about ensuring safety for yourself and others. With minimal effort, you can maximize the life of your blades and ensure that you're disposing of them responsibly.


Elevating Your Shave: The Stand and Its Benefits

Elevating Your Shave: The Stand and Its Benefits

Many overlook the importance of a razor stand, viewing it merely as a vanity accessory or luxury. However, the reality is that the razor stand is an integral part of ensuring a long-lasting, top-performing razor. This seemingly simple tool offers numerous benefits that will improve your shaving experience.

01 Aesthetically Pleasing

The first thing most people notice about a razor stand is how it elevates the look of their bathroom. An elegant stand not only showcases the beauty of the X1 Razor but also de-clutters your shaving area. It's a simple way to add a touch of class to your grooming routine.

02 Blade Longevity

A stand, especially one designed for the X1 Razor, ensures that your razor is stored upright. This position aids in drying the blade faster, reducing the risk of moisture-induced damage or rusting.

03 Safety

With the razor securely placed on a stand, there's a decreased risk of accidental cuts or nicks when reaching for other items on your counter. The stand ensures the blade isn't in direct contact with surfaces, reducing the potential for contamination.

04 Optimal Storage

Storing your razor upright on a stand protects the blade's edge from unnecessary wear and damage. This ensures that the blade remains sharp and ready for your next shave, prolonging the intervals between blade replacements.

05 Hygiene and Cleanliness

The stand's design allows for adequate airflow around the razor, preventing the build-up of moisture and bacteria. This contributes to a more hygienic shaving experience and ensures that your blade remains in optimal condition for longer.

06 Easily Accessible

With the razor in a stand, you can easily pick it up and place it back after every use, streamlining your shaving routine and making it hassle-free.

The razor stand is not just a piece of decor – it's a functional accessory that protects, showcases, and enhances the longevity of your X1 Razor. Investing in one is a step towards a more refined and efficient shaving experience.


Maximizing Your Shave: The Role of the Shave Brush

Maximizing Your Shave: The Role of the Shave Brush

More Than Just a Brush

To the uninitiated, a shave brush might seem like an unnecessary accessory. After all, can't you just apply the shaving cream or soap with your hands? The truth is, a shave brush does so much more than just help apply lather. It plays a pivotal role in elevating the entire shaving process.

Benefits of Using a Shave Brush

  • Exfoliation

    Using a shave brush helps in exfoliating the skin, removing dead skin cells, and ensuring a smoother shave. This also reduces the chances of ingrown hairs.

  • Richer Lather

    A shave brush helps in producing a thick and rich lather, ensuring better protection and lubrication during the shave. This leads to fewer nicks and cuts.

  • Even Application

    With a shave brush, you can ensure an even application of the shaving cream or soap, leading to a consistent shave.

  • Lifting Hair
    A brush helps lift the facial hair, making it easier for the razor to cut and leading to a closer shave.
  • Heat Retention

    A warm lather helps in opening up the pores and softening the hair. A shaving brush retains the heat from the hot water, ensuring a warm lather throughout the shave.

  • Economic

    Using a shave brush ensures you use just the right amount of shaving cream or soap, leading to savings in the long run.

06 - Troubleshooting the x1


My razor isn't cutting. What should I do?

! - My razor isn't cutting. What should I do?

If you find your X1 razor not cutting as it should, a variety of reasons could be behind this. We've put together a guide to help you identify and rectify the issue, ensuring a seamless shaving experience.

01 Blade Dullness

  • Cause: Extended use of the same blade might cause it to lose its sharpness.

  • Solution: Replace your blade after every 7-11 shaves or sooner if it doesn't feel sharp. Keep spare blades at the ready for such moments.

02 Blade Loading Concerns
  • Cause: Blades can sometimes be compromised during the loading process, especially if the blade edge drags along the blade stop. If your shave feels patchy or the blade tugs at your skin, this might be the underlying cause.

  • Solution: Consider inserting a fresh blade. While loading the new blade, ensure the blade edge doesn't drag along the blade stop. If you face challenges with the blade loading mechanism, we recommend trying the manual blade loading technique for a more controlled insertion. For detailed guidance on manual blade loading, please refer to Chapter 2, Lesson 2.3: Blade Loading.

03 Improper Shaving Technique

  • Cause: The razor's angle can impact the shave quality.

  • Solution: Try holding the razor at a 30-degree angle to your skin. With practice, you'll determine the best angle. Let the razor's weight guide the shave, avoiding unnecessary pressure.

04 Preparation of Skin

  • Cause: Dry skin or facial hair can hinder a smooth shave.

  • Solution: Ensure your skin is well moisturized. A shaving brush, used to apply shaving cream or soap, can elevate the hairs for an effective cut. Consider shaving post a hot shower or after using a warm towel on your face. Consider buying Hype's Shave Brush.

05 Regular Razor Maintenance

  • Cause: Over time and with regular use, any razor might have a build-up of product residue or dead skin, although the X1 razor's design minimizes this risk.

  • Solution: Make it a habit to rinse your razor during the shave. For optimal performance, disassemble and clean your razor periodically to keep it in pristine condition.

Different factors can influence the efficiency of your shave. If, after trying these solutions, you still face challenges, consider reaching out for more tailored assistance. Proper razor care is pivotal for a top-notch shave every time.


I'm having difficulty loading the blades.

! - I'm having difficulty loading the blades.

Blade loading, while designed to be seamless with the X1 Razor, may occasionally pose challenges for some users. We acknowledge that there can be a slight learning curve, but with a bit of guidance and practice, you’ll be changing blades with ease.

01 Misalignment of Blade and Mechanism

  • Cause: Not aligning the injector key and the razor’s slot properly.

  • Solution: Ensure that the key end of the injector is correctly fitted into the slot on the razor. Hold both the razor and the injector blade firmly while loading.

02 Compromised Blade During Loading
  • Cause: Sometimes, the blade edge can drag along the blade stop while loading, affecting its cutting quality.

  • Solution: While inserting the blade, ensure that its edge doesn't drag along the blade stop. If necessary, try the manual loading method, which offers more control. For detailed guidance, please refer to Chapter 2, Lesson 2.3: Blade Loading.

03 Forceful Loading

  • Cause: Pushing too hard can sometimes misalign the mechanism.

  • Solution: Gentle but firm pressure is the key. Allow the mechanism to smoothly slide in the blade without forcing it.

04 Presence of Debris or Residue

  • Cause: Build-up in the blade slot might cause obstructions.

  • Solution: Ensure the loading area of your razor is clean from any debris or old blade fragments. Consider rinsing and cleaning your razor periodically, especially the loading mechanism.

Loading a blade should become second nature with a bit of practice. If you consistently face challenges, revisit Chapter 2, Lesson 2.3 where we provide a detailed guide on blade loading. If you still encounter difficulties, don't hesitate to seek further guidance or watch our blade-loading tutorial for a visual guide.


Why isn't my razor providing a close shave?

! - Why isn't my razor providing a close shave?

A close, comfortable shave is the very reason many users switch to the X1 Razor. If you’re not achieving the smooth results you desire, various factors could be contributing. Let’s diagnose the potential issues.

01 Blade Sharpness

  • Cause: A dull blade is the most common culprit behind a shave that isn't close enough.

  • Solution: Make sure you replace blades regularly. Although the X1 Injector Blades are designed for longevity, they do wear out eventually. If your blade isn't sharp enough, it's time for a replacement. Typically, 7-11 shaves per blade is a good benchmark, though individual experiences might vary.

02 Incorrect Angle
  • Cause: Not holding the razor at the optimal angle to the skin.

  • Solution: Ensure that the razor’s head is flush against your skin and that you’re maintaining an angle of about 30 degrees. It might take some practice, but once you get the hang of it, this angle provides the closest shave.

03 Inadequate Prep

  • Cause: The skin and hair haven't been sufficiently softened and prepared for shaving.

  • Solution: Pre-shave preparation is crucial. Make sure to use warm water and a quality shaving cream or gel to soften the hair and hydrate the skin. Remember, softer hair cuts more easily.

04 Applying Too Much or Too Little Pressure

  • Cause: Exerting the wrong amount of pressure affects the closeness of the shave.

  • Solution: The X1 Razor, designed with a similar weight to multi-blade razors, is made of light aluminum. Thus, you should apply only slight pressure, akin to how you would with a multi-blade razor. Too much force can result in nicks and cuts, while too little might leave you with uneven shaves. Aim for a gentle, steady hand to get the most out of your shaving experience.

05 Multi-pass Shaving Technique

  • Cause: Trying to achieve a close shave in a single pass.

  • Solution: It's recommended to use multiple passes for an ultra-close shave. Start with a with-the-grain pass, followed by an across-the-grain, and finally an against-the-grain pass. Remember to reapply shaving cream or gel between passes.

Attaining that perfect, close shave might require a bit of patience and practice. Be mindful of your technique, and over time, you'll master the art of shaving with the X1 Razor. Should you need further guidance, don't hesitate to refer to our comprehensive shaving guide or reach out for assistance.


My razor feels too aggressive or too mild.

! - My razor feels too aggressive or too mild.

A comfortable shave is influenced by the aggressiveness of your razor setting. If your X1 Razor feels either too harsh or too gentle, there are ways to adjust and optimize your shaving experience.

01 Unfamiliarity with the Settings

  • Cause: The X1 Razor is designed with three customizable settings (Sensitive, Comfort, and Ultra-Close) to cater to every individual's shaving preference. If you're new to the razor or haven't changed settings in a while, it might not align with your current needs.

  • Solution: Familiarize yourself with the three settings. Start with the Comfort Shave Setting (C) as it's meant for everyday use. Depending on your preference, you can then switch between the other two for a more customized experience.

02 Improper Setting Selection
  • Cause: You might have chosen a setting that doesn't align with your skin type or facial hair density.

  • Solution: If your skin feels irritated or the shave too close, consider switching to the Sensitive setting. Conversely, if the shave feels too mild, try the Ultra-Close setting. Remember, it's about finding the sweet spot for your skin.

03 Incorrect Shaving Technique

  • Cause: The pressure and angle you use when shaving can influence the perceived aggressiveness of the razor.

  • Solution: Make sure you're not pressing too hard and let the razor's weight do the work. Hold the razor at a 30-degree angle to your skin for optimal results. Adjusting your technique can often make a significant difference.

04 Blade Quality

  • Cause: A dull or compromised blade might force you to apply extra pressure, making the shave feel more aggressive.

  • Solution: Ensure your blade is sharp and in good condition. A dull blade will not only provide an inferior shave but can also increase the risk of nicks and cuts. If you suspect blade dullness, consider replacing it. Our blades ensure 7-11 quality shaves per blade.

05 Skin Preparation

  • Cause: Dry skin or inadequately prepped facial hair can amplify the perceived aggressiveness of the razor.

  • Solution: Always moisturize your skin before a shave. Using a shaving brush can also help in prepping your hair, making it easier for the blade to cut through and providing a smoother experience.

How to Change Shaving Settings

Your X1 Razor's unique design allows easy adjustment of the blade exposure. For step-by-step instructions on changing the shaving settings, refer to the user guide provided. For a more detailed guide, please see Chapter 2,  Lesson 02: Selecting The Right Shave Setting.
Personalizing your shave is pivotal. It might take a few tries to determine the right setting and technique, but once you do, you'll experience a comfortable and close shave tailored to you.


I'm experiencing irritation or razor burn.

! - I'm experiencing irritation or razor burn.

Razor burn or irritation after a shave can be discomforting. It's often characterized by redness, small red bumps, itchiness, or a burning sensation post-shave. Understanding the cause can help you mitigate the problem.

01 Blade Quality

  • Cause: Using a dull or damaged blade can lead to tugging and pulling, causing discomfort.

  • Solution: Make sure you're changing your blade regularly. Our blades offer 7-11 quality shaves per blade. If you feel any tugging or dragging, it's time to replace the blade.

02 Blade Loading Concerns
  • Cause: Blades can sometimes be compromised during the loading process, especially if the blade edge drags along the blade stop. If your shave feels patchy or the blade tugs at your skin, this might be the underlying cause.

  • Solution: Consider inserting a fresh blade. While loading the new blade, ensure the blade edge doesn't drag along the blade stop. If you face challenges with the blade loading mechanism, we recommend trying the manual blade loading technique for a more controlled insertion. For detailed guidance on manual blade loading, please refer to Chapter 2, Lesson 2.3: Blade Loading.

03 Improper Shaving Technique

  • Cause: Applying excessive pressure, shaving against the grain, or using incorrect angles can cause irritation.

  • Solution: Use gentle strokes and apply only minimal pressure. Start by shaving with the grain, especially in sensitive areas. Adjust the angle of the razor to about 30 degrees for optimal results.

04 Inadequate Skin Preparation

  • Cause: Dry shaving or using subpar shaving creams/gels can result in razor burn.

  • Solution: Ensure your skin is well-hydrated before shaving. Use warm water and a quality shaving cream or gel. Using a shaving brush can also help in adequately preparing your skin by lifting facial hair and exfoliating dead skin cells.Consider buying Hype's Shave Brush.

05 After-Shave Care

  • Cause: Neglecting post-shave care can lead to skin irritation.

  • Solution: Always rinse your face with cool water post-shave and apply a moisturizing after-shave balm or lotion. This will soothe your skin and reduce any inflammation.

06 Allergic Reaction

  • Cause: Sometimes, irritation can be due to an allergic reaction to products used during the shaving process.

  • Solution: If you've recently switched to a new shaving cream, gel, or after-shave, consider going back to a product you've used before without issues. If irritation persists, consult a dermatologist.

Tips for a Comfortable Shave

  • Always shave after a shower or rinse your face with warm water to soften facial hair.

  • Invest in a good quality shaving brush to exfoliate and prepare the skin.

  • Consider using pre-shave oils or creams for an added layer of protection.

  • Always finish with a soothing post-shave product.

Razor burn or irritation can be a thing of the past by adjusting your technique, ensuring proper skin preparation, and using quality products. Always listen to your skin's needs and make adjustments accordingly.

For an optimal shaving experience, the sharpness and performance of your blade are paramount. A blade that is not up to the mark can result in an unsatisfactory shave and potential skin issues.

01 Exceeded Usage Life

  • Cause: Each blade is designed for a certain number of shaves. Over time, with repeated use, its performance might diminish.

  • Solution: Our blades are crafted to deliver 7-11 quality shaves. If you've been using the blade beyond this range, it might be time for a replacement.

02 Improper Storage
  • Cause: Storing blades in damp or humid environments can cause them to lose their sharpness quicker or even rust.

  • Solution: Always store your blades in a dry place. If your bathroom tends to get steamy, consider storing them outside of the bathroom or ensuring proper ventilation.

03 Blade Damage during Loading

  • Cause: If the blade edge gets damaged or nicked during the loading process, its performance will be compromised.

  • Solution: Carefully load a new blade, ensuring the edge does not scrape against any parts of the razor. For a refresher on the correct technique, you can refer to the above troubleshooting question: I'm having difficulty loading the blades.

04 External Contaminants

  • Cause: Accidental contamination, like dropping the blade or exposing it to harsh chemicals, can affect its sharpness.

  • Solution: If you suspect your blade might've been contaminated, it's safer to dispose of it and insert a new blade.

05 Too Frequent Usage

  • Cause: If you're shaving multiple times a day, the blade can wear out faster.

  • Solution: Depending on your shaving frequency, adjust how often you change your blade to maintain a consistently sharp edge.

Tips to Prolong Blade Life

  • Dry the blade gently after each use to prevent moisture-related issues.

  • Store the blades in their protective casing when not in use.

  • Avoid touching the sharp edges of the blade directly to minimize potential damage.

A well-maintained blade ensures a smooth and comfortable shave every time. It's essential to monitor your blade's performance, store it correctly, and replace it timely for the best shaving experience.

! - My handle or other parts feel loose or damaged.

Your X1 Razor is designed with precision and care to provide a smooth and comfortable shave each time. However, if you ever feel that the handle or the shave setting plate seems loose or damaged, it's essential to address the issue promptly to ensure safety and effectiveness.

01 Loose Shave Setting Plate

  • Cause: The X1 Razor's shave setting plate and handle are magnetically connected. If the plate feels wobbly or loose, it could be due to a tolerance issue which might have arisen from production variances or after dropping the razor.

    Unlike disposable razors, which largely consist of non-recyclable plastics, the X1 Razor uses no plastic, reducing the environmental footprint.

  • Eco-friendly Packaging

    Our packaging materials are consciously chosen to minimize waste and are recyclable, further diminishing plastic pollution.

03 Sustainable Blade Disposal

  • Recyclable Blades

    The stainless steel used in our blades is recyclable. By ensuring proper disposal, especially with our specially designed injector blade dispenser with a used blade slot, you’re helping to reduce unnecessary waste.

  • Longer Lifespan
    Our blades are designed to provide 7-11 shaves per blade, which reduces the frequency of replacements and, in turn, waste generation.

04 Minimalistic Design for Reduced Resource Use

  • Resource Efficiency

    The minimalistic design of the X1 Razor ensures that no excess materials are used in its production. This efficient use of resources means a smaller environmental footprint in its manufacturing.

  • Energy Efficiency
    A streamlined production process also translates to less energy consumption during manufacturing, thereby reducing carbon emissions.

05 Promotion of Conscious Consumerism

  • Informed Choices

    By choosing the X1 Razor, you're not just selecting a superior shaving tool; you're making an environmentally conscious decision that promotes sustainable living.

  • Educating Consumers
    We're dedicated to spreading the word about sustainable practices and the benefits of eco-friendly products. By supporting us, you're also championing a more sustainable and informed world.

Embracing the X1 Razor is more than just a choice for a premium shaving experience. It's a decision that aligns with a sustainable future and contributes to a healthier planet for generations to come.

01 Commitment to Excellence

At X1 Razor, we pride ourselves on the quality and craftsmanship of our products. That's why we're confident enough to offer a lifetime warranty on our razor. It’s a testament to our belief in the durability and performance of the X1 Razor.

The lifetime warranty covers any manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship. This includes issues like faulty parts or any other production-related problems that can affect the usability of the razor.

03 What It Doesn't Cover

Wear and tear from regular use, accidental damage, misuse, or modifications to the razor are not covered. It's also crucial to note that blades, due to their consumable nature, are not part of this warranty.

If you believe your razor has a defect covered by our lifetime warranty:

  • Document the issue with clear photographs.
  • Send these photos, along with a detailed description of the problem, to our customer support team at hey@hyperazor.co.
  • Our team will evaluate the issue and guide you through the next steps.

05 Replacement & Repairs

Should your claim be approved, we'll offer a repair or replacement, at our discretion. We aim to ensure you have a functioning X1 Razor, living up to our promised standards.

06 Proof of Purchase

It's important to keep your original purchase receipt or order confirmation. We may ask for it to verify the authenticity of your product and validate the warranty claim.

Remember, our lifetime warranty is our pledge to you, reflecting our commitment to excellence. While we stand by the quality of the X1 Razor, should any unexpected issues arise, know that we're here to make things right.
