This invention relates to an improved magazine for razors which magazines are adapted for co-operation with the razor for supplying blades from the magazine to the razor. The invention is of the type illustrated and described in the application for Letters-Patent, Serial No. 681,259, filed July 20, 1933 and issued August 14, 1934, No. 1,969,945, and which type contemplates the edge-wise feeding of blades from a stack into the razor and thus ejecting the used blade at the same time.
This present form of device includes a clip for a stack of blades which clip is enclosed in a magazine that supports the stack in a position to make the blades successively available for ejection from the magazine. The magazine is provided with a slide that not only serves to seal the top of the magazine but also acts as a means for propelling a blade completely from the magazine. The magazine also includes a closure in the form of a bottom which acts as a support for a spring which in turn supports the stack and which bottom seals the clip and its stack against removal.
This structure results in a non-refillable magazine that is so cheaply constructed that it is expendable, in other words, it is thrown away when empty. This enables a user to purchase a stack of blades sealed in the container which forms the magazine thus insuring blades that have not been handled, that need no handling by the purchaser and that carries an assurance that the blades are genuine.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which
The magazine comprises a body portion or receiver which is provided with a suitable means for aligning the device to a razor. Such means is shown as a lip
The magazine comprises a tubular body portion having side walls
The stack of blades is shown at
The bottom plate
The bottom plate is provided with a leaf spring
When the stack of blades has been placed in the clip the clip is placed in the magazine, the slide having been previously inserted in the magazine. The bottom is then caught over the front edge of the flanges
The lock strip material and the lip
The magazine is made up of three main parts, the tubular magazine, the ejector and the bottom plate with the spring for holding the stack up. The parts are made of light metal, particularly the ejector and the bottom plate. The slide or ejector is doubled to give it rigidity for feeding the blades and to form a tight closure.

In this form the front end of the bottom plate
1. A separate magazine to be used with razors of the magazine type, said magazine comprising a casing, of tubular form, a holder for a stack of blades, an ejector slide for successively removing blades from the stack and ejecting them from the casing and a bottom plate having a spring on its inner face for engagement with the stack, the bottom plate and the casing having co-acting means for securing the bottom plate in position and requiring distortion of the bottom plate to accomplish its removal.
2. A separate magazine to be used with razors of the magazine type, said magazine comprising a casing, a stack of blades in the casing, an ejector slide for successively feeding blades from the stack, said magazine having its parts secured in place in a manner to prevent opening of the magazine without destruction.
3. A magazine for razor blades comprising a tubular casing having its top wall slotted and its front wall provided with a slit, a sheet metal ejector slide extending under the top wall and bent over at the back and extending over the top wall, means for fastening the two reaches of ejector together, said means extending through the slot to form a stop, and a bottom plate on said casing for supporting a stack of blades against the ejector.
4. A magazine for razor blades comprising a tubular casing having its top wall slotted and its front wall provided with a slit, a sheet metal ejector slide extending under the top wall and bent over at the back and extending over the top wall, a lip extending from one reach of the ejector through the slot and through the other reach and bent over and to act as a stop in the slot, and a bottom plate for supporting a stack of blades against the ejector.
5. A magazine for razor blades comprising a casing, means at the top of the casing for ejecting blades from the casing, the casing having an open bottom with a connecting strip at the back, a bottom plate hooked into the casing at the front, said bottom plate including a stop plate extending upwardly through the bottom of the casing, and also including an end bent over the rear strip and inside the casing to form a locking strip.
6. A magazine for use with razors of the magazine type, said magazine comprising a casing having a lip projecting from one end for engagement with a razor, a stack of blades inside the casing, a slide for ejecting blades from the stack, and a bottom plate on the casing for confining the blades and secured in position against removal without distortion whereby the casing is insured against refilling.
7. A magazine for use with razors of the magazine type, said magazine comprising a casing having a lip projecting from one end for engagement with a razor, a clip fitting in the casing, a stack of blades in the clip, an ejector slide movable along the top of the clip for ejecting blades from the stack, a bottom plate supporting the clip and secured permanently in place whereby the supply of blades can not be renewed.
