My invention relates generally to safety razors, and more particularly to a miniature safety razor particularly intended for use in cutting hairs from the nostrils and ears.
The principal object of my invention is to provide a relatively simple, practical and inexpensive miniature safety razor that is very compact, and which includes a holder, a blade, and a guard, which, when properly assembled, provides simple and effective means for conveniently cutting hairs from the nostrils and ears, and the construction of the razor being such that the guard that overlies the blade, while the latter is positioned on the holder, is provided at its rear end with a resilient clip that engages the rear portion of the holder in order to firmly retain the blade in proper position upon said holder.
A further object of my invention is to provide a miniature razor of the character referred to, wherein the holder, blade and guard are provided with curved forward edges in order to enable the razor to be more conveniently used in the nostrils and ears.
With the foregoing and other objects in view, my invention consists in certain novel features of construction and arrangement of parts that will be hereinafter more fully described and claimed and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:
Referring by numerals to the accompanying drawing which illustrates a preferred embodiment of my invention,
Formed integral with the underside of plate
Formed on top of the plate
The razor blade
Formed in the sides of blade
Thus the engagement of the studs
When the blade is positioned on the holder, the sharp forward edge
A combined guard and blade holder comprises a plate
This arrangement provides a guard to prevent the sharp edge of the blade from cutting the skin while the razor is in use.
The rear end of the guard plate
In assembling the parts of the razor for use, the blade
Thus the blade is held against movement in all directions upon the plate
Thus the parts of the razor are firmly retained in assembled relation and said razor may be conveniently used for cutting hairs from the nostrils and from the ears.
In order to be effectively used, the parts
The forward edges of the plates
Thus it will be seen that I have provided a miniature safety razor that is relatively simple in construction, inexpensive of manufacture, and very effective in performing the functions for which it is intended.
It will be understood that minor changes in the size, form and construction of the various parts of my improved miniature safety razor may be made and substituted for those herein shown and described without departing from the spirit of the invention, the scope of which is set forth in the appended claim.
I claim as my invention:
A miniature safety razor comprising a handle, a plate detachably applied to said handle and occupying a position immediately adjacent the end thereof, said plate being inclined with respect to the axis of the handle, the front lower edge of which plate is semi-circular in form and provided with substantially parallel teeth, a lug projecting upwardly from the center of the top of said plate, lugs formed on top of the plate adjacent the sides thereof, a blade removably positioned on top of said inclined plate, the sharpened edge of which blade is semi-circular in shape and overlies the teeth on said plate, said blade being provided with an aperture and notches for the reception of the lugs on the upper surface of said plate, a guard plate overlying the blade, the front edge of which guard plate is semi-circular in form and occupies a position adjacent the sharp edge of the blade, a depending hook projecting inwardly from the rear edge of said guard plate and there being a transversely disposed groove formed in the under side of said inclined plate for the reception of the free end of said hook.
