We, William Rawson, Manufacturer, of 37 Burcot Road, Sheffield, and William Burnell, Manufacturer, of 2 Randall Street, Sheffield, do hereby declare the nature of this invention and in what manner the same is to be performed, to be particularly described and ascertained in and by the following statement:—
This invention relates to safety razors and has for its objects, first, in that type in which the guard comprises a rotatable roller or rollers, to provide improved means for securing the rollers detachably in position and secondly to arrange the rollers so as to facilitate the making of those sliding or sweeping saw-like strokes which experience shows to be the most efficient. A further feature of the invention relates to the position of the handle which is so arranged as to add to the ease with which these saw-like strokes may be made.

3. In a safety razor the combination with a holder and means for securing a razor blade thereto of a cranked handle extending longitudinally in relation to the razor edge with or without means for alternatively attaching the handle in a position approximately normal to the surface of the razor blade.
4. In a safety razor the combination with a holder and means for securing a razor blade thereto of a roller or its equivalent adjacent to the razor edge and a cranked handle extending longitudinally in relation to the razor edge substantially as described.
