The present invention relates to razor construction particularly designed to be used in shaving the eyebrows. Heretofore razors have been designed for special purposes as, for example, for shaving the armpits, nostrils, etc. Also, a multiplicity of different razor constructions have been proposed for shaving the face and neck. I have found, however, that in shaving the eyebrows, razors now on the market are not suitable for the reason that their construction is such that a person can not shave their own eyebrows with the aid of a mirror with any degree of uniformity of contour.
I have found that an effective eyebrow razor must be relatively small when compared with the conventional razor and without a safety guard so as to avoid obstructing the vision of the user. Also, that the blade should preferably be disposed in a plane with an unguarded cutting edge extending entirely around its periphery with rounded cutting end portions and straight cutting edge portions between the rounded ends. With such a razor the user is able to shave the eyebrows upon opposite sides of the unshaven portion of the eyebrows and to provide the unshaven portion, which is usually arcuate as dictated by present styling, with the desired contour.
Accordingly the object of the present invention is to provide a novel eyebrow razor of the aforesaid construction and possessing the aforesaid advantages.
In the drawing wherein the preferred form of the invention is illustrated
It is to be noted that the blade
It should be readily appreciated that razors for general shaving purposes are only designed for removing hair from a relatively large area without particular regard as to contouring an unshaven area. My razor is not to be confused with safety razors of standard dimension and capable of general use. The razor herein disclosed is not suitable for general use as it has no safety guard. It has been especially designed for use in connection with the shaving of eyebrows and I wish to limit the appended claims accordingly.
Having thus described my invention what I desire to protect by Letters Patent and claim is:
1. A miniature eyebrow razor dimensioned to be lightly held between the thumb and finger and used without obstructing the vision of the user, comprising relatively flat upper and lower clamping plates of similar size and contour, a relatively flat cutting blade similar in contour to said plates and disposed therebetween, said blade being of slightly larger size than said plates so as to project beyond the edges of said plates, a handle, means for holding said plates and blade to said handle, said handle being disposed substantially at right angles to the plane of said blade, said blade in one dimension being sufficiently narrow to enable shaving between the eyebrow and the eye without obstructing the user's vision, said blade being unguarded and projecting sufficiently beyond said plates as to avoid obstructing from the vision the cutting edge portion of the blade when the razor is being used.
2. A miniature eyebrow razor dimensioned to be lightly held and without obstructing the vision of the user, comprising a handle, a cutting blade having keen straight and rounded edge portions, clamping plates disposed upon opposite sides of said blade, means assembling said plates and blade to said handle so as to dispose said handle substantially perpendicular to the plane of said blade, the keen straight and rounded portions of said blade projecting beyond said plates and being entirely unguarded, said plates being relatively rigid yet relatively thin at their edges so as to avoid obstructing from the vision the cutting edge portions of said blade when the razor is being used for the purpose described.
