To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Henry Van den Berg, a subject of the Queen of the Netherlands, residing at Montreal, Province of Quebec, Canada, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors; and I do hereby declare that the following is 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.
The present invention relates to razors and more particularly to safety razors.
An object of the present invention is to provide a razor of this character whereby a blade may be readily applied thereto or detached therefrom and the blade having a plurality of cutting edges and each cutting edge being adapted to be presented for use without removing the blade from its holder.
A further object of the present invention is to provide a razor of this character having but comparatively few parts and each part can be readily removed and cleaned, and when assembled the blade will be rigidly retained in place.
With the above and other objects in view which will hereinafter appear as the description continues, the invention consists of the novel features of construction, combination and formation of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described and particularly pointed out in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawings has been shown a simple and preferred form of the invention, it being however, understood that no limitation is necessarily made to the precise structural details herein exhibited, but the right is hereby reserved to any changes, alterations or modifications to which recourse may be had that come within the scope of the claims without departing from the spirit of the invention or sacrificing the efficiency of the same.
In the accompanying drawings:
Referring now more particularly to the accompanying drawings wherein like and corresponding parts are designated by similar reference characters throughout the several views.
From this construction it is obvious that by pulling down on the knob
From the foregoing it is obvious that when the blade is secured in position the lower cutting edge as better shown in
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A safety razor comprising a handle, said handle having a dovetailed groove formed in the upper end thereof, a holder, said holder comprising a squared plate, a guard formed with each edge of said plate, a block projecting from the lower face of said plate, said block adapted to be seated within said dovetail-shaped groove, a locking member carried by the handle for retaining said block within said groove, a squared projection formed with the upper face of said plate, a cutting blade adapted to be seated upon said plate, said cutting blade having an opening therein for receiving said squared projection formed with the upper face of said plate, and a locking member detachably connected to said plate and said locking member having a plurality of arms adapted to rest upon the upper face of said plate substantially as and for the purpose specified.
2. A safety razor comprising a hollow handle, a block seated within the upper end of said handle, an inclined dovetail groove formed within the upper face of said block, said handle adapted to close one end of said groove, a slidable locking member arranged within said handle and adapted to project within one end of said groove, a squared guard plate, a double dovetailed projection formed with the lower face of said plate and adapted to be retained within said dovetailed groove, a guard formed with each edge of said plate, a projection formed with the upper face of said plate, a cutting blade adapted to rest upon the upper face of said plate, a detachable locking member secured to said plate and said locking member comprising a plurality of arms adapted to rest upon the upper face of said plate subsiantially as and for the purpose specified.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
HENRY VAN DEN BERG.
