To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Raymond H. Wilhelm, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented new and useful Improvements in Safety Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to safety razors and an object of this invention is to provide a combined safety razor and flashlight which are arranged so that the rays from the light will project upon the face of the user of the razor so as to prevent the casting of a shadow over the face and permit the shaver to clearly see the portions of his face as they are engaged by the razor enabling him to make a clean shave.
Practically every shaver has experienced difficulty and annoyance at times owing to the improper position of light when shaving often resulting in leaving some of the beard on the face in spots, and it is an object of this invention to combine a battery lamp structure which is embodied in the handle of a safety razor and may be excited during shaving with the razor for clearly illuminating the shaver's face.
Another object of this invention is to provide a razor carrying head which is provided with a pair of light deflecting surfaces projecting at acute angles from the axis of the lamp bulb and towards the cutting edges of the razor blade so as to properly distribute the light from the bulb.
Other objects of the invention will appear in the following detailed description and in the accompanying drawing wherein:
Referring more particularly to the drawing the improved razor comprises a handle
If it is so desired, glass, preferably concave-convex, as shown at
It is, of course, to be understood that the invention may be constructed in various other manners and the parts associated in different relations and, therefore, I do not desire to be limited in any manner except as set forth in the claims hereunto appended.
Having thus described my invention what I claim is:
1. In combination a safety razor head having a threaded shank, illuminating means including a shell and a bulb, a reflector supporting the bulb and having a flange resting upon the end of the shell, a head having a threaded bore for receiving said shank and having cutout portions forming deflecting surfaces converging towards the center of the bulb, a cap secured to the head and adapted to have screw threaded engagement with the shell for binding said flange in position.
2. In combination a safety razor head having a threaded shank, illuminating means including a shell and a bulb, a reflector supporting the bulb and having a flange resting upon the end of the shell, a head having a threaded bore for receiving said shank and having cutout portions forming deflecting surfaces converging towards the center of the bulb, a cap secured to the head and adapted to have screw threaded engagement with the shell for binding said flange in position, and glass covers for said cutout portions.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
Raymond H. Wilhelm.
