2,089,486 Nasal Razor Charles Kuhn, Oakland, Calif. Application July 12, 1934. Serial No. 734,754. 1 Claim. (Cl. 30—33)

This invention relates to an improved construction of a crescent, longitudinally shaped safety razor for shaving hair within the nostrils or ear, comprising in combination a handle and blade clamping member, said clamping member comprising a pair of bars pivoted together at one end, means for securing the opposite ends of said bars together and detachably connecting the same to said handle, each of said bars being longitudinally curved and relatively narrow as compared to its length, whereby the clamping member is adapted to be inserted within the nostrils or ears, blade aligning means carried by said bars, a rigid longitudinally curved blade having a concave cutting edge adapted to be clamped between the curved portions of said bars and held in position by said aligning means, and one of said bars being provided with guard means underlying the concave cutting edge of the blade.

Referring to the accompanying drawing.

Figure 1 shows the crescent, longitudinally shaped device, side view, open.

Figure 2 illustrates a longitudinally curved steel razor blade.

Figure 3 shows the device, crescent, longitudinally shaped, side view closed, ready to use.

Figure 4 illustrates the hinged clamping bars enlarged, inside view and open.

Figure 5 shows the crescent, longitudinally shaped hinged clamping bars from the side, open.

Figure 6 represents an enlarged cross-sectional detail, through the device, as same would appear if viewed when cut through boss 13.

To operate the device, the curved razor blade 11, is inserted over the boss 13, in order to retain same in its proper position within the crescent longitudinally shaped holder bars 10. The slot 12 and boss 13 are here shown as rectangular, but it is of course to be understood that any desirable shape may be employed or in fact any conventional means will serve to retain the curved razor blade between the hinged portions of the support 10.

When the curved steel razor blade 11 is in position, the hinged support 10 is closed, to clamp the curved steel razor blade in the manner illustrated in Figure 3, and the ends of the hinged bars come together and are threaded to provide a trunnion 14 receivable by the interiorly threaded end of a conventional handle 15. The innermost section is shown as provided with prongs 16 which are in a position to be adjacent to the cutting edge of the curved steel razor blade 11, and thus guard this edge much in the same manner as the prongs on an ordinary safety razor.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

A crescent-shaped nasal safety razor for shaving hair within the nostrils or ears comprising in combination a handle and a blade clamping member, said clamping member comprising a pair of bars pivoted together at one end, means for securing the opposite ends of said bars together and detachably connecting the same to said handle, each of said bars being longitudinally curved and relatively narrow as compared to its length whereby the clamping member is adapted to be inserted within the nostrils or ears, blade aligning means carried by said bars, a rigid longitudinally curved blade having a concave cutting edge adapted to be clamped between the curved portions of said bars and held in position by said aligning means, and one of said bars being provided with guard means underlying the concave cutting edge of the blade.
