We, Harry Reynolds, 10, Montgomery Road, Sheffield, Cutlery Manufacturer, and John Alfred Lloyd, 6, Montgomery Road, Sheffield, Silversmith, do hereby declare the nature of this invention to be as follows:—
A safety razor consists of four parts the blade, the grid, the cramp for holding blade on grid and the handle.
The cramp has two short projections which fit into corresponding holes in the blade to prevent it moving, it has also a centre pin passing through the grid.
The centre pin screws into the handle thus holding the blade in position.
In our improved safety razor, we place a ball & socket joint between the grid & the handle, by which the top part of the holder can be tilted over, thus enabling the user to place the blade at any angle for shaving.

We, Harry Reynolds, 10, Montgomery Road, Sheffield, Cutlery Manufacturer, and John Alfred Lloyd, 6, Montgomery Road, Sheffield, Silversmith, do hereby declare the nature of this invention and in what matter the same is to be performed, to be particularly described and ascertained in and by the following statement:—
This invention relates to the holder part of a safety razor and not to the blade
The object of this invention is to incline the blade to any required angle. In the accompanying drawings
A safety razor consists of four parts viz. the blade
Attached to the cramp
The centre pin screws into the handle
In an ordinary safety razor the cramp.— guard and handle are screwed together, the handle being at right angles to the guard, and rigid thus the blade is always at right angles to the handle.
In our improved safety razor we place a ball and socket joint between the guard
In makig our improved razor we make a ball part
In order to alter the inclination of the blade we slacken the screw a little, move the top part as required and then screw tightly up again.
Having now particularly described and ascertained the nature of our invention and in what manner the same is to be performed, we declare that what we claim is:—
An improved holder for safety razor blades, which can be inclined over so as to bring the edges of the blade to any convenient angle with the face, by means of a ball and socket joint placed between the handle and the guard, substantially as described with reference to the accompanying drawings.
