This invention relates to an improved article which forms a shaving unit and consists of a combined blade package and razor, the blade package being in the form of a sales package so that the article can be supplied filled with blades and has an opening through which the blades can be fed, one at a time. It is preferably made so that it will be difficult to refill it all this in view of the fact that a large supply of blades can be furnished with the package and the whole device is so cheap that when the supply of blades is exhausted the article can be thrown away.
This invention is an improvement over my previous invention fully described and illustrated in an application filed by me on May 19, 1926, Serial No. 110,109. By this improvement the construction can be more cheaply manufactured, the removal of the blade from the package is easier and the insertion and removal of the blade in and from the guard is more rapid and convenient and the proportions of the parts provide an article of greater utility. Furthermore, there are no prominent projections as the parts of the guard that hold the blade in shaving position do not extend beyond the dimensions of the sales package or blade reservoir, so that when a cover is put on one end of the razor when it is not being used the article is substantially rectangular and is easily carried in the vest pocket.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which
The casing is usually made of metal and I find that aluminum is well adapted for the purpose, the body portion or package consisting of a casing
The top of the casing
It will be noted that this construction keeps all the parts of the guard within the limits of the dimensions of the package. The plate
It will be evident, therefore, that the body portion of the device is made of two pieces, the casing
1. An article of the kind described comprising a casing with a recess for blades and a guard for a blade, and a plate on the casing and extending across the bottom as a support for the blades in the recess and extending across the top as a spring means for holding a blade on the guard.
2. An article of the kind described comprising a casing with a recess for blades and a guard for a blade, and a plate on the casing and extending across the bottom as a support for the blades in the recess and extending across the top as a spring means for holding a blade on the guard, the plate being spaced from the casing in order that it can be flexed and will thereby release a blade held on the guard.
3. An article of the kind described comprising a package of blades having a guard on one end and a plate secured to the back of the package and extending across the bottom to inclose the blades and spaced to provide a passage through which a blade can be ejected, the plate extending at the other end to form a spring means for holding a blade in position on the guard, the body portion of the package being recessed near the top so that pressure on the back of the plate will spring the plate so as to release the blade.
4. An article of the kind described comprising a casing with a guard on one end thereof and a plate on the back of the casing and having one end formed to provide a spring plate for the guard, the plate at the other end being bent across the end of the casing and spaced therefrom to provide a narrow slit on three sides to permit a blade to be moved longitudinally and then swung forward.
5. In a device of the kind described a sales package containing a stack of blades, means for forcing said stack toward the end of the package, said end of the package being open on three sides to permit the dispensing of a blade at a time.
6. An article of the kind described comprising a substantially rectangular casing having a recess for a stack of blades and a guard including a platform for a blade and a fender on the front end thereof, the casing, the guard and the fender being made of one piece of material, means for closing the end of the recess to the extent of permitting the dispensing of a blade at a time an means for maintaining a blade in position on the guard.
7. In a device of the kind described comprising a box-like casing having a recess for a supply of blades and having a blade platform and a fender forming a guard and constituting the top end of the casing and lying within the limits of the dimensions of the casing.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
