We, William Wallis Twiggs, of Harpers Hill Works, Northwood Street, Birmingham, in the County of Warwick, Manufacturer, and Charles Neville Loeb, of 10, New Union Street, Moorfields, in the City of London, Merchant, do hereby declare the nature of our invention to be as follows:—
This invention relates to safety razors of the kind wherein two opposite edges of the blade are exposed and provided with combs ready for use.
According to the present invention, the frame bearing the razor-blade is pivotally mounted on the handle, so as to permit of its being rocked through a suitable angle in either direction, in order to enable the blade in use for the time being to be brought into the most convenient position for shaving.
For this purpose, the comb-plate, on which the blade is secured, may be provided with two legs which are pivoted to the corresponding legs on a bar preferably screwed to the handle. These legs may be advantageously arranged to form stops which abut, e.g., against the comb-plate or bar and limit the angle through which the frame can be turned.
The razor-blade may be advantageously secured to the comb-plate by means of one or more headed studs projecting from the surface of said plate and extending through holes in the blade and in a cover-plate resting on the top of said blade, the holes in the cover-plate being provided with lateral slots adapted to receive the stems of the studs beneath the heads thereof. By moving the cover-plate laterally so as to bring said slots into engagement with said stems, the cover-plate and razor-blade can be securely held in position. By moving the cover-plate in the opposite direction, so as to bring the heads of the studs into register with the holes in the cover-plate, the said plate and the blade can be readily removed.

We, Wlliam Wallis Twigg, of. Harpers Hill Works, Northwood Street, Birmingham, in the County of Warwick, Manufacturer, and Charles Neville Loeb, of 10, New Union Street, Moorfields, in the City of London, Merchant, 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 a safety razor comprising a double edged blade, of the kind wherein the blade is set at an angle other than a right angle relatively to the handle. In razors of this kind it has been proposed to provide universal or other joints in the handle.
According to the present invention the ends of a bar fixed to the handle are turned up to form brackets and, correspondingly, the ends of the comb-plate are turned down to form lugs which are pivotally joined to the said brackets.
There is thus provided a simple and inexpensive construction permitting the comb-plate and the blade to rock on the said bar.
The blade is secured to the comb-plate by a cover plate attached to the comb plate by means of headed studs extending through key-hole shaped slots. For this purpose the use of a single stud and slot has already become known but this necessitates the provision of supplementary means to prevent the blade from turning about the single stud. Such supplementary means for preventing turning are unnecessary when a plurality of studs are used.

Having now particularly described and ascertained the nature of our said invention and in what manner the same is to be performed, we declare that what we claim is:—
1. In a safety razor of the kind comprising a double edged blade the inclination of which relatively to the handle, can be adjusted, the provision of brackets on a bar carried by the handle and lugs on the comb-plate, respectively, the said brackets and lugs being pivotally joined together, in combination with the provision of a cover plate removably attached to the comb plate by a plurality of headed studs passing through key-hole shaped slots in the said cover plate.
2. A safety razor constructed substantially as described with reference to the accompanying drawing.
