Similar letters indicate corresponding parts.
This invention consists in the combination of a cutting-blade with a comb, said blade being secured to one side of the comb, so that the teeth of the latter project a certain distance beyond the cutting-edge of the blade, and that, by passing the teeth of the comb through the hair, the hairs are cut off at a uniform distance from their roots.
In the drawing, the letter
When the cutting-blade is secured on the comb in the required position, and the comb is passed through the hair of a man or of an animal, all the hairs are cut off at a uniform distance from their roots, and an implement is obtained by which each person is enabled to cut his or her own hair without difficulty, and which can also be used with advantage for cutting the hair of animals, such as horses, or the wool of sheep.
In some instances I find it desirable to combine with the cutting-blade and comb a suitable guard,
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. The combination, with a flat comb,
2. The combination, with a comb,
This specification signed by me this 24th day of July, 1876.
