To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, John H. D, Everett, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of Sault Ste. Marie, county of Chippewa, and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety Razors, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to new and useful improvements in safety razors, and has for its object to provide an improved construction of this class which is particularly adapted for shaving hollow portions of the body, such as the arm pit, and the like; and is durable in construction, highly efficient in use, and at the same time economical in manufacture.
Other objects will appear hereinafter.
The invention consists in the combinations and arrangements of parts hereinafter described and claimed.
The invention will be best understood by reference to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, and in which,
improved safety razor;
In manufacturing my improved safety razor the blade holding portion
The razor blade
In mounting the blade with its jacket on the blade holder the resilient arms
It is apparent from the above disclosure that this form of construction, with the use of the jacket and the raised tooth, retains the blade in its properly curved or bowed shape, and that the resilient arms with the lugs
While I have illustrated and described the preferred form of construction for carrying my invention into effect, this is capable of variation and modification without departing from the spirit of the invention. I, therefore, do not wish to be limited to the precise details of construction set forth, but desire to avail myself of such variations and modifications as come within the scope of the appended claims.
Having described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
1. In a safety razor, the combination with a bowed cutting blade having a notch provided in each end, of a holder for said blade and comprising a handle with means for engaging in said notches to hold the blade in position, and a serrated member under said blade and containing an elevated serration engaging the under face of said bowed blade to prevent it bending onto the other serrations.
2. In a safety razor, the combination with an outwardly bowed cutting blade having a notch provided in each end intermediate the corners, of a holder for said blade and comprising a handle with diverging members containing jaws with means for engaging said notches to hold said blade in position, and a serrated member joining said jaws and containing serrations located slighlty
3. In combination, a safety razor comprising a bowed blade, a reinforcing jacket doubled over an edge of said bowed blade and engaging both faces thereof to retain said blade in curved shape, means on said jacket to hold said blade therein, a notch formed on each end of said blade between said means, and a handle with means engaging in said notches to hold said blade in position.
4. In combination, a safety razor comprising an outwardly bowed blade, a reinforcing jacket doubled over the back edge of said blade and engaging both faces thereof to retain it in its bowed shape, lugs on said jacket bent over the ends of said blade, a notch formed between said lugs, and a handle having side members with a serrated portion extending beneath said blade and having side lugs engaged in said notches to hold said blade in position.
5. A safety razor holder formed of an integral connected blank, comprising at one end a handle portion doubled centrally upon itself and at the other end a transverse upwardly bowed guard portion, the ends of the guard portion being connected with the handle portion by curved separate arms, said arms being bent up at the ends of said guard to form spring clamping jaws to yieldingly clamp the bowed ends of a razor blade therebetween, and a tooth on said bowed guard portion for engaging the inner faces of said razor blade.
6. In combination, a safety razor comprising a blade holder formed from a blank punched from a single piece of material, said blank being folded centrally to form a handle portion and to form separated arms with jaws thereon, an outwardly bowed serrated guard portion connecting said jaws, a bowed safety razor blade having notches in its ends, a reinforcing jacket mounted over said blade to retain it in its curved position, lugs on each side of said jaw for engaging said notches to hold the blade in position, said arms being resilient to permit convenient insertion and removal of said blade, and an elongated tooth on said bowed serrated portion engaging under the inner side of said blade to retain it in its bowed position.
7. In a safety razor, the combination with an outwardly bowed cutting blade, of a holder for said blade and comprising a handle with resilient means for engaging the ends of said blade to hold it in position, and a serrated guard member connecting said blade engaging means and spaced slightly beneath said blade, said member being curved to correspond to the curvature of said blade, and elevated means on said serrated member for engaging the under face of said bowed blade to prevent it bending onto the other serrations.
8. In combination, a safety razor comprising an outwardly bowed blade, reinforcing means mounted on said blade, and bowed to correspond to the curvature of said blade for retaining said blade in its bowed shape, means on said reinforcing means to retain said blade firmly in position therein, and a handle with means for mounting and retaining said blade and its reinforcing means in bowed position therein but permitting convenient removal thereof from said handle.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
John H. D. Everett.
