PATENT SPECIFICATION
Application Date : Sept. 14, 1925. No, 538/25. Complete Specification Accepted : Jan. 14, 1937.
COMPLETE SPECIFICATION. Improvement in and relating to Safety Razors.
265,525

I, Jacob Schick, a citizen of the United States of America, of 78, Harrison Street, East Orange, State of New Jersey, United States of America, do hereby declare the nature of this invention and in what manner the same is to he performed, to be particularly described and ascertained in and by the following statement:—

This invention relates to magazine safety razors of the kind that are adapted to contain a stack of wafer blades which are fed from the stack successively into the guard, which thus permits the easy replacement of a dull blade by a sharp one.

The invention is specifically directed to the provision of a package to contain the stack of blades, which package or holder containing the stack can be readily inserted into the razor and thus be placed in operative position to cooperate with the other parts thereof. This permits the sale and use of razor blades which need not be handled separately for insertion into the razor and which are also sanitary because they need not be handled or actually exposed until they are in shaving position.

The invention consists in a clip or holder for use in connection with a magazine safety razor which employs blades in stacked relation and is provided with means for feeding them successively to a shaving position, said clip being adapted to receive a stack of blades thus forming a unitary device for insertion into the razor.

I am aware that ribbon types of blades have been used in razors and also that blades have been fed from the handle into the guard of razors but the use of separately stacked blades supplied in a package and to be operatively projected into position within the guard one by one, is as far as I am aware, broadly novel.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which—

Figure 1 is a section through one form of magazine razor, and

Fig. 2 is a similar view of a second form of such a razor, showing the blade package in position;

Fig. 3 is a section on line 6—6 in Figure1;

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the clip used in the form of razor shown in Fig. 1 and of a blade above it;

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a clip used in the form of razor shown in Fig. 2;

Fig. 6 is a perspective view of one end of the clip shown in Fig. 5;

Fig. 7 shows the clip illustrated in Fig. 5 in a casing in which it may be marketed.

In the drawing the handle 1 has a guard 2 pivoted to the post 3, the guard being slotted so that it can be swung either into the longitudinal position shown in full line in Fig. 1, or into the laterally extending shaving position shown in dotted lines. The curved front edge 5 and the under face of the head portion of the guard flank the blade 8 which fits a slit in the guard, the blade being inserted endwise into the slit and being frictionally held by a spring which bears lightly on the blade.

The blades are carried in the handle which has a recess 10 to receive the stack of blades.

In the form shown in Fig. 1, the stack of blades is held in a holder 11 comprising an open-sided frame with a spring 12 to bear on the underside of the stack of blades. The holder is carried by a stem 13 which extends into recess 10.

I prefer to supply the blades stacked a clip ready for use in razors of the kind described so that when made by automatic machinery and inserted in the clips, the stack of blades will be safe from injury to their edges.

I place the blades in a clip preferably made as shown at 14 with the side wall 15, end walls 16 and an open bottom through which the spring 12 can project. Flanges 17 at the bottom support the blades along their ends while flanges 18 hold the blades at the corners of their sharpened edges so that the blades are fed through without injury to the cutting edges.

The clips 14 are preferably wrapped when sold to the user and when the wrapper is removed the clip can be inserted between the ends 19 and 20 of the holder 11. This provides for the clip and the holder being slid into the handle together, the clip being located in position by shoulders 28, on the stem 13.

In the form of razor shown in Fig. 2 the blade is fed from a stack as in the construction shown in Fig. 1, the stack being shown at 21, and a new blade is placed in shaving position by sliding the top plate to the rear of its normal shaving position and when the shoulder on the top plate and normally positioned at the back edge of the recess 22 passes over the top blade of the stack, the top blade is snapped into position by a pressure means underneath such as the spring 23. The spring 23 is placed within the holder 24, the holder, when divested of its casing 25 or other covering, being placed in the recess 26 and being slid endwise therein. The blades are held in the holder so that the sharpened edges are prevented from engaging the wall of the casing and in the form shown each blade has notches to fit over the fins 27 on the holder.

Having now particularly described and ascertained the nature of my said invention and in what manner the same is to be performed, I declare that what I claim is:—

1. A clip or holder for use in connection with a magazine safety razor which employs blades in stacked relation and is provided with means for feeding them successively to a shaving position, said clip being adapted to receive a stack of blades thus forming a unitary device for insertion into the razor.

2. A clip or holder as claimed in Claim 1 having an open side to permit removal of the blades when inserted into the razor.

3. A clip as claimed in Claim 1 or 2 provided with means for holding the blades in stacked relation with their cutting edges out of contact with the clip.

4. A clip or holder as claimed in Claim 2 or 3 having spring means, adapted to move the blades towards the open side thereof.

5. A clip as claimed in Claim 4 wherein the spring means is carried thereby.

6. A clip as claimed in Claims 2 and 4 having an opening opposite the open side thereof to permit the entry of the spring means, said means being carried by the holder.

7. A clip as claimed in any of the preceding claims wherein said clip comprises a side portion and end portions extending from opposite ends thereof, said side and end portions having along one edge of each thereof narrow inwardly extending flanges constituting a support for the stack of blades, and said end portions having at the edges thereof opposite and parallel to said side portion narrow inturned flanges adapted to engage the extreme corners of the cutting edges of the blades.

8. A form of construction for use in connection with a magazine safety razor which employs blades in stacked relation and is provided with means for feeding them successively to a shaving position, comprising a holder and a clip adapted to receive a stack of blades said clip being adapted to be inserted in the holder and the latter being adapted to be inserted into position in the razor.

9. The forms of clips or holders substantially as described or as illustrated in the accompanying drawings.
