Application Date : April 3, 1933. No. 9937/33. Complete Accepted: Sept. 21, 1933.

I, Josefine Kiesling, née Kuhlmann, of No. 17, Moserstrasse, Stuttgart, Germany, of German Nationality, 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 for ladies which serves for beautifying and is especially suitable for shaving the eyebrows and removing hair from the arm pits. The known safety razors, with right angular, flat head are only suitable for shaving the beard and are unsuitable for the above mentioned purposes.

According to the invention the razor ??? comprising in known manner two clamping plates holding the blade, and said blade is tapered towards one of the cutting edges so that opposite a wide cutting edge a very narrow cutting edge is formed suitable for shaving the eyebrows, especially on the under side adjacent the eyelid in the longitudinal direction. According to a further feature of the invention the opposite wide cutting side is flexed so as to fit in the arm pits. The fixed wide side enables at the same time the shaving of the eyebrow line transversely to the longitudinal direction. The advantage of the safety razor according to the invention consists primarily in that it is possible to shave oneself in a very simple manner instead of requiring the services of a second person.

An embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which:—

Fig. 1 shows the razor in perspective view.

Fig. 2 is an end view of the guard plate.

Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the guard plate

Fig. 4 is a section on line A-B of Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is a longitudinal section through the head of the razor.

The safety razor consists in known manner of a guard plate a having teeth along both cutting edges, a razor blade c, tightly pressed against the guard plate a by a top plate b. This top plate b secures against rotation the blade c by means of pins d extending through this blade and the guard and the top plate b is secured to the guard plate a by means of a screw threaded shank f screwed in a handle e (Fig. 5). The top plate b and the blade c may, however, be located on and secured to the guard plate a in any other suitable manner. The guard plate @ and correspondingly the top plate b and the blade c taper towards one cutting edge so as to form a narrow cutting edge g and a wide cutting edge h. The plates a and b on the wide side are further curved in a direction parallel to the cutting edges as shown in Fig. 4. The narrow cutting edge g is intended for shaving the eyebrows in the longitudinal direction thereof, whereas the wide cutting edge h which is longitudinally flexed corresponding to the shape of the arm pits serves for shaving the arm pits and for shaving the eyebrows transversely to their longitudinal direction.

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.—Safety razor for ladies, characterized in that the razor head, clamping the blade in known manner, and the blade are tapered towards one of the cutting edges so that opposite a wide cutting edge (h) a cutting edge (g) only very narrow is formed suitable for shaving the eyebrows.

2.—Safety razor as claimed in claim 1, characterized in that the wide cutting edge (h) is flexed corresponding to the shape of the arm pit.

Dated this 3rd day of April, 1933.
