I, Edward Charles Robert Marks, a British subject, of 57 & 58, Lincoln's Inn Fields, London, W.C. 2, do hereby declare the nature of this invention (a communication to me from abroad by Magazine Repeating Razor Company, a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of New Jersey, located at 2, Rector Street, City, County and State of New York, United States of America) and in what manner the same is to be performed, to be particularly described and ascertained in and by the following statement:—
The present invention is designed to provide a magazine safety razor which is economical to make and which provides a ready accessible means for inserting a stack of blades in the razor, these stacks being placed in the razor either by inserting the blades one at a time or by the preferred method of placing them in a clip, the clip being a cheap expandable device in which the blades can be sold and which can be thrown away when empty, such as described in Specification No. 264,203.
The razor is also designed to provide one which is substantially waterproof so that when the guard is washed or the razor is dipped in water, the magazine for the razor blades and its contents are kept dry.
The invention also resides in certain details of construction which will be hereinafter more fully described and finally embodied in the claims.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which
The guard is illustrated in full lines as it is disposed, when in position, to receive a new blade and eject the old one. The blade is shown at
A stack of blades is shown at
When the stack of blades has been depleted the leaf
The spring is normally held against sliding, when an end cap to be hereinafter described is removed, by suitable means such as a small projection
To eject the blade from the stack, I provide a slide
The slide can reciprocate in the handle and its forward end
To prevent the slide from being pulled out too far I limit its movement by a suitable means such as the pin
To hold the slide in its normal position, I arrange the sleeve
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 razor of the kind described having means acting to eject the blades from the handle formed as a slide longitudinally displaceable within said handle and carrying a forward extension serving to close a slit through which the blades are ejected from the handle.
2. A razor as claimed in Claim 1 in which the slide is adapted to be drawn out from the handle of the razor, the slide being formed to permit a stack of blades to be inserted in position.
3. A razor as claimed in Claims 1 and 2 in which the slide is arranged to be drawn out longitudinally of the handle by means of a part on the outside of the handle and adapted to retain the slide in normal position.
4. A razor as claimed in Claim 3 in which the part on the outside of the razor handle by which the slide is manipulated is formed as a cap fitting upon the end of the handle and provided with an aperture to enable a stock of blades to be inserted therethrough into the razor handle.
5. A razor as claimed in any of the preceding claims in which said cap member is provided with a closure member adapted to provide a moisture proof blade containing chamber when in closed position.
6. A razor as claimed in any of the preceding claims in which a spring acting to press the blades into position to be engaged by said slide is arranged within the handle, the spring being formed to hold the stack of blades in position in said handle so as to prevent longitudinal displacement thereof.
7. A razor as claimed in Claim 6 in which said spring is formed with a part acting both to feed the blades into position to be engaged by the slide, and also to engage a clip member to withdraw said clip member when the stack of blades therein has been depleted.
8. A razor as claimed in Claims 6 and 7 in which said spring is provided with 3 projecting portion enabling said spring to be withdrawn from the handle of the razor.
9. A razor as claimed in any of the preceding claims in which the blades are inserted as a stack within a clip member formed to closely fit a passage in said handle and open along one side to enable a spring member to bear against the blades stacked therein.
10. A razor as claimed in Claim 9 in which said clip member is provided with a projecting tongue adapted to overlie said slide member even when in its rearmost position.
11. A razor as claimed in any of the preceding claims substantially as described or as illustrated with reference to the accompanying drawings.
