This invention relates to an improved razor that is adapted to be folded to form a compact elongated form for easy packing and for convenient carrying if need be, in the pocket. The razor has a folding guard that when folded is substantially within the limits of the handle and when extended forms a support for a blade.
The invention is also directed to a razor in which the blades can be held in reserve in the form of a stack, the handle having means for successively ejecting the blades, as needed, from the end of the handle and each blade after being so ejected is transferred by hand to the guard.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which
The razor comprises a handle
The wings are provided with slits
To make it possible to carry a stack of blades in protected condition I provide a recess
The slide or feeder
When the razor is to be used it is preferably held horizontal and the slide
The blade is then picked up and slid into the groove in the wings
The preferred way of putting the blade in the guard is to slide it in edgewise and when the blade is to be ejected it can be slid by means of a pin or any other slender article out of the slot of the guard. The blades used in this razor can be extremely narrow and of such cost that if necessary a new blade can be used for each shave but a blade can be repeatedly used and the razor need be folded only when carried in the pocket or when its use is discontinued for sometime.
Various modifications of the size and form of the parts can be used without departing from the scope of the invention.
I claim: A razor comprising a handle, a guard comprising two wings adapted to be folded alongside the handle or extended laterally therefrom, the wings having slits which form a, continuous groove for receiving a blade, when the wings are extended.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
