This invention relates to an improved safety razor of the type that utilizes a stack of blades and feeds them one at a time from the stack, but the razor is designed to require the interposition of a human agency by transferring the blade by hand to the guard. This placing of the blade in shaving position in the guard is possible by reason of the blades being projected, one at a time, when desired so that they can be grasped and withdrawn entirely from the magazine that contains them.
The invention therefor embodies a razor with means for positively feeding a blade at a time from the stack, then withdrawing the blade so fed and placing it in the holder.
The razor is simple to operate, is cheap to manufacture, and keeps the blades secure and in a water-proof compartment.
The invention also relates to certain details of construction which will be hereinafter more fully described and finally embodied in the clauses of the claims.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which
The razor comprises a handle and a guard, the guard being preferably mounted on a post. In the drawing I show a handle
On the wall of the recess opposite the top of the stack I provide means for engaging the top blade and in the drawing I illustrate a shoulder or projection
It will be evident that when the magazine is withdrawn to the position shown in
This construction is an example of the razor and it will be evident that other means may be employed for placing the blades successively in exposed position from which position they can be readily withdrawn.
The blade is carried by hand after it is withdrawn from the handle and is then placed in the guard. The guard can be constructed to receive the blade edgewise or laterally but I illustrate one form of guard in which the guard
1. A razor comprising a handle, a magazine containing a stack of blades, a holder for the magazine and which with the magazine is slidable in the handle, a projection to engage and feed a blade from the stack when the holder and the magazine are reciprocated, the blade so projected being placed so as to be grasped by the hand, a cap adapted to fit over and close the handle, the cap having a marginal flange, a lip on the holder disposed so that when the holder is in place in the handle the flange of the cap, when removed from the handle, can be used as a tool for engaging and withdrawing the holder.
2. A razor comprising a casing, a holder slidable in the casing and adapted to be partially withdrawn therefrom, the holder including a lip at its outer end, and a flanged cap for closing the end of the casing and adapted for engagement with the lip for withdrawing the holder.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
