To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Charles R. Burke, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented a new and Improved Safety-Razor, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
My invention relates to safety razors of the reciprocating type. The object thereof is to provide a simple, inexpensive and efficient razor which is characterized by the provision of a top or cover plate which relieves pressure on the reciprocating blade when the razor is in use and also serves as an additional guide for the razor.
I attain the above and other objects of my invention by the structure conventionally disclosed in the accompanying drawings, wherein similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views.
Referring to the drawings,
A blade carrier
A safety razor comprising a frame, a handle associated therewith, a knurled roller revoluble in said frame and having a cam groove, a pair of parallelly-shaped bars in the frame disposed parallel to the roller, a blade carrier slidably mounted on said bars with means for engaging the groove of the roller, lateral arms on said carrier for receiving a blade in proper relation with the roller, and a cover plate secured to the frame by said rods to rest over the blade on the carrier, said plate having the edge nearest to the roller depressed toward the plate to form an additional guide for same.
