To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Phillip H. Unsinger, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Fremont, in the county of Sandusky and State of Ohio, have invented a certain new and useful Safety-Razor; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
My invention relates to safety-razors, and it has for its object the provision of an improved and highly efficient razor of this character, which is simple, durable and inexpensive in its construction, is free from springs and corners which are hard to clean and insanitary, is capable of being easily and quickly cleaned, and does not require water pressure for cleaning but can be cleaned by rinsing it in a basin of water. The blade is also rigidly supported for its entire length and width to prevent a vibrating thereof during shaving, and is absolutely protected at the corners thereof.
Further objects of my invention as well as the operation, construction and arrangement of the parts thereof are fully described in the following specification, and while, in its broader aspect it is capable of embodiment in numerous forms, a preferred embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which—
Referring to the drawings,
It will be noted that the guard presents a smooth flat surface to the skin, which smooths the skin before the blade and prevents the blade from cutting the face. The form of guard shown is far superior in shaving to the toothed form of guard, as the opening between the guard and the blade edge, permits all hair and lather to pass freely therethrough to the underside of the blade and holder, where it can be easily removed by rinsing in water.
The form shown in
It is apparent that I have provided an exceedingly simple and strong form of instrument of the character described, which is easily cleaned, safe in use, and capable of being readily assembled or disassembled as desired, and that the instrument shown in
I wish it understood that my invention is not limited to any specific construction or arrangement of the parts except in so far as such limitations are specified in the claims.
Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is,—
1. A safety razor comprising a flat holder-plate having a handle projecting from one side thereof and having its rear edge turned upwardly to form a stop, a blade seating flat on said plate, and a flat clamping-plate superimposing said blade and having end ears which are bent to slidingly coöperate with the holder-plate to removably clamp the blade thereto, said clamping-plate having its forward edge bent downwardly to provide a guard and having an opening therein in register with the cutting edge of the blade to expose the same.
2. A safety razor comprising a holder-plate having its rear edge fashioned to form a stop, a blade seating flat upon said holder-plate with its rear edge in contact with said stop and its forward edge projecting beyond the forward edge of the holder-plate, a flat clamping-plate seating upon said blade and having end ears which bend downwardly and inwardly under the ends of the holder-plate to slidingly coöperate therewith to removably clamp the blade thereto, said clamping-plate having its forward edge bent downwardly in advance of the cutting edge of the blade to provide a guard therefor and having an opening throughout the greater portion of its length in register with the cutting edge of the blade to expose the same, the corners of the blade being guarded by the ends of the downwardly turned portion of the clamping plate.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Phillip H. Unsinger.
