This invention relates to a safety razor of the magazine type which is adapted to feed blades from a stack of blades and is of a construction that enables a quick and easy refilling of the magazine, the latter being done by inserting a clip which holds the blades in a stack and is withdrawn when the blades are all expended.
The invention relates particularly to the construction of the parts as will provide, first, a razor of substantially square form in cross-section; second, one that can be easily operated to expel a blade from the magazine into the shaving head; third, providing for a simple and effective means for holding the clip in position and combining therewith a spring to keep the blades in the stack compact and to force them in engagement with the feeding means; fourth, to provide a detachable means for holding the clip-holding means in position and which normally keeps in secure engagement with an abutment but which is quickly released when uncovered by a rearward movement or partial withdrawal of the blade-feeding slide; fifth, to provide a construction that is possible of economical construction as it is easily assembled, all the parts in themselves extremely simple. The rectangular form of the various parts, nesting one within the other, provide for the necessary accuracy and precision when feeding the blades into shaving position.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which
The razor comprises a handle
These parts in the shaving head, with the exception of the spring
Inside the square tube is arranged the stack of blades and means for holding it and also means for propelling a blade at a time from the stack. Inside of the handle I place a guide which is formed of sheet metal, this guide being shown at
To manipulate the spring it is secured to a grip or handle consisting of a block
In the form shown the spring is provided with a hole
There are no parts to be unscrewed for opening the end of the handle to receive the clip, therefore, saving time and furthermore the parts fit accurately and they are easily assembled and easily fitted into the inside of a square tube and a square handle, in turn, forms an article that does not turn in the hand when it is being used.
It will be evident that various modifications can be made in construction of the parts without departing from the scope of the invention.
1. A magazine razor comprising a handle with a shaving head to receive blades from the handle, the handle being recessed to receive a clip of blades, a blade ejecting slide in the handle and having its end open and forming a grip, a clip spring and remover within the slide and having a grip within the grip of the slide, and manually operable holding means on the grip of the spring and the handle, the slide having an open end to allow the passage of the grip of the clip spring and having its grip arranged to conceal the holding means when the slide is in normal position.
2. A magazine razor comprising a recessed handle for receiving a clip of blades, a slide for ejecting blades and having a grip for its manipulation, a removable clip seating and holding means, and a catch for said means, the grip of the slide surrounding and concealing the catch when the slide is in normal position.
3. A safety razor comprising a handle rectangular in cross section, a three-sided slide fitting in the handle and adapted to eject a blade from a stack of blades, a clip holder fitting in the slide and adapted to hold a clip of stacked blades in the path of the slide, a shaving head to receive a blade ejected by the slide, the slide being freely slidable in the handle, a spring and clip seating means insertible through the end of the slide, and a spring catch for holding the said spring in place.
