PATENT SPECIFICATION
Application Date: Sept. 11, 1940. No. 109/42. (Divided out of No. 543,782). Complete Specification Left: Sept. 25, 1941. Complete Specification Accepted: March 12, 1942.
PROVISIONAL SPECIFICATION. Improvements in or relating to Safety Razors
543,801

I, Joe Edgar Bevis, Windy Ridge, 16, Middleton Road, Winton, Bournemouth, British subject, do hereby declare the nature of this invention to be as follows:—

This invention relates to safety razors of the type comprising a blade set in a blade holder and a handle connected to the centre of the back of the blade holder and extending therefrom in a direction perpendicular to the general plane of the holder. For example, and more especially the invention relates to razors of the well known Gillette (registered trade mark) type.

I have now found that enhanced results in the way of comfort, safety and efficiency are obtainable when the handle takes a new form which enables practically the whole weight of the head to be concentrated on the beard and providing a flexibility which absorbs human error. This object is obtained by having a hollow handle, the grip being slit from end to end in appropriate proportions thus forming a sensitive grip with a flexibility inwards, which absorbs human error and careless use. The handle itself will be made from a light composition of any known synthetic resin.

Dated the 1st day of January, 1942.

COMPLETE SPECIFICATION. Improvements in or relating to Safety Razors

I, Joe Edgar Bevis, Windy Ridge, 16, Middleton Road, Winton, Bournemouth, British subject, 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 safety Razors of the type comprising a blade set in a blade holder and a handle connected to the centre of the back of the blade holder and extending therefrom in a direction perpendicular to the general plane of the holder. For example, and more especially the invention relates to razors of the well known Gillette (registered trade mark) type.

I have now found that enhanced results in the way of comfort, safety and efficiency are obtainable when the handle takes a new form which enables practically the whole weight of the head to be concentrated on the beard and providing a flexibility which absorbs human error. This object is obtained by having a hollow handle, the grip being slit from end to end in appropriate proportions thus forming a sensitive grip with a flexibility inwards which absorbs human error and careless use. The handle itself will be made from a light composition of any known synthetic resin.

The invention will now be further described with reference to the accompanying drawings of which:—

Figure 1 is the razor holder in end elevation with handle slit as shown at 1.

Figure 2 is a portion of the razor handle, showing at 2, 3, 4 and 5, the slit sections.

Figure 3 is a cross section of the razor handle.

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 safety razor of a type hereinbefore referred to having a hollow handle the grip being slit from end to end to provide flexibility.

2. A safety razor handle as in claim 1 made from a light composition of any known synthetic resin.

3. A safety razor handle as herein described and illustrated in the accompanying drawings.


Dated this 29th day of January, 1942.
