To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Fernan Conill, a citizen of the Republic of Cuba, residing at New York city, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors; 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.
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in razors, and the principal object of the invention is to provide a razor in which the blade is given a rapid transverse movement in order that the edge of the blade will have a sawing action when the razor is in use.
Another object of the invention is to provide a razor of the ordinary safety razor type provided with a novel means for causing the blade to reciprocate and for holding the blade against movement in a direction other than that in which it is required to move.
Still another object of the invention is to provide a motor driven blade which may be readily removed and replaced in the ordinary manner.
A still further object of the invention is to provide a guard plate for the blade which carries suitable projections forming bearings on which the blade is movable.
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the novel combination and arrangement of parts which will be fully set forth in the following specification and accompanying drawing, in which :—
Referring to the drawing, the numeral

While in the foregoing there has been shown and described the preferred embodiment of this invention, it is to be understood that such changes may be made in the combination and arrangement of parts as will fall within the spirit and scope of the appended claim.
What is claimed is:
A safety razor comprising a handle, a transversely curved head at one end of the handle, said handle being provided with a bore, the head being provided with an opening near one end, a stem on the inner face of the head projecting in a plane parallel with the handle near the end opposite the opening, said stem being provided with a longitudinal bore, the rear end of the bore opening into an enlarged chamber, a transversely curved guard plate adapted for cooperation with the head, a stem on said guard plate extending into the bore in the handle, a lug on the guard plate extending through the opening in the head, means in the bore of the handle to hold the guard plate and stem in place, a longitudinally slidable blade positioned between the guard plate and the head, said blade having a central elongated slot and being provided with a similar opening near one end, said opening being disposed in a plane parallel with the longitudinal axis of the blade, the blade being provided with an elongated opening near its opposite end, the last-named opening being disposed in a plane at right angles to the longitudinal axis of the blade, an eccentric shaft mounted in the bore of the eccentric on the head, an eccentric at the outer end of the shaft positioned within the transverse opening of the blade, a sleeve surrounding the handle, a motor carried by the sleeve, a shaft for said motor, and a universal joint connecting the shaft with the eccentric shaft.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
