To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, John Heitner, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Shaving Implements, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to that class of devices embodying a cutting-blade and a guard-plate, a portion of which forms a handle for manipulating the implement.
This invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which
Similar letters indicate corresponding parts.

What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. The combination, with the cutting-blade, of a guard-plate constructed in sections which are hinged to fold on each other, one adapted to support the cutting-blade and the remainder forming a handle, interstices at the junction of the blade-section with the handle-sections, and means for holding the blade-section substantially at a right angle to the handle-sections, and holding the latter substantially flush with each other, the whole constructed and adapted for use, substantially as described.
2. The combination, with the cutting-blade, of a guard-plate constructed in sections which are hinged together and constructed with the stops f for regulating the positions of the sections, one section adapted to support the cutting-blade and the remainder forming a handle, interstices at the junction of the blade-section with the handle-sections, and the spring
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
