To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Paul Zamett, of Glen Cove, in the county of Queens and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Razor-Guards; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, that will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

The guard can be slipped on and off the razor-blade so easily and readily that it can be reversed in position, and thereby affords a guard and protection while operating the razor in either hand.
I do not claim, broadly, a guard constructed with the springs for fastening it on the back of the razor-blade.
