To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Heinrich Besançon, a citizen of Germany, residing at Bienne, Canton of Berne, Switzerland, have invented new and useful Improvements in Razors, of which the following is a specification.
The subject of the present invention is a razor in which a steel lamina forming the razor blade is held between clamping jaws of a blade holder. The feature of the device is that the clamping jaws are formed by the ends of a folded resilient metal strip.
One embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which
In the embodiment shown the blade holder consists of the folded resilient metal strip
Having now particularly described and ascertained the nature of my said invention and in what manner the same is to be performed, I declare that what I claim is:
A razor comprising a resilient plate bent upon itself to form a pair of jaws, one of said jaws lying in a horizontal plane and having a plurality of openings therein, and the other jaw curved away therefrom and provided with a plurality of studs adapted to pass through said openings, a cylindrical portion immediately back of said jaws and out of symmetry therewith, a blade adapted to be clamped between said jaws and provided with a plurality of openings adapted to register with the openings in the horizontal jaw, one of said studs being threaded, and a nut adapted to fit said threaded stud for closing the jaws together and adjusting the horizontal jaw and the blade toward the curvature of the other jaw.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification.
