To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Abraham Zilbersher, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Safety-Razor, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
My invention relates to a new and useful improvement in the art of safety razors and more particularly the invention involves a retainer or cap plate used on safety razors, the construction of which especially adapts it for use with blades which have been worn down more or less after honing or stropping.
The object of my invention is to provide a retainer or cap plate having the parts thereon which coact with the blade seat to hold it in position to one side of a central line through the cap plate whereby portions of the cap plate bear on the top surface of a blade for unequal distances, the wider portion of the cap plate being adapted for use with a new blade while the narrower portion thereof is especially adapted for use with a blade which has become lessened in width due to honing or stropping. The construction of the cap plate and the remaining parts with which it is used in combination will be more particularly described hereinafter and set forth in the claims.
Reference may be had to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which like reference characters denote corresponding parts in all the views, and in which—
The improved retainer or cap plate is set forth and described in connection with a particular form of holder although it is obvious that the cap plate may be used with any form of holder as my invention relates to the cap plate and not to the holder itself.
The safety razor in which I have illustrated my improvement preferably consists of a piece of sheet metal bent in the form of a tube and having extending therefrom a flaring portion
The improved feature of my invention and the one involving the novelty thereof lies in the relation between the threaded lug
The operation of the device will be readily understood when taken in connection with the above description. When it is desired to shave, a blade is placed on the holder
While I have shown one embodiment of my invention, I do not wish to be limited.to the specific details thereof but desire to be protected in the various changes, alterations, and modifications which I may make within the scope of the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
1. As a new article of manufacture a cap plate for safety razors having a plurality of lugs extending laterally thereof, the said lugs lying in the same vertical plane, the distance between the said plane and one edge of the cap plate being different than the distance between the said plane and the other edge of the said cap plate.
2. As a new article of manufacture, a cap plate for safety razors having means extending therefrom adapted for coöperation with a blade and a blade seat in order to position the blade thereon, the said means being intermediate of the edges of the cap plate, the distance from one edge to the said means being greater than the distance from the other edge to the said means.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
