The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in safety razors and more particularly to an inexpensively constructed razor which may be discarded and disposed of after a single use or after the blade has served its usefulness,
An important object of the invention is to provide a safety razor having an integrally constructed head and handle and forming the head with a recess in which the rear edge of a guard and blade are permanently secured to support the front of the guard and blade in a forwardly projecting shaving position.
Another object is to construct the head and handle of plastic material to simplify assembling the guard and blade in the recess thereof by fusing, cementing or pressing the walls of the recess in friction gripping engagement with the guard and blade in a permanently anchored position in the head.
A further object is to provide a disposable safety razor of simple and practical construction, which is efficient, safe and dependable in use, relatively inexpensive to manufacture and otherwise well adapted for the purpose for which the same is intended.
These together with other objects and advantages which will become subsequently apparent reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which:
Referring now to the drawings in detail, wherein for the purpose of illustration, we have disclosed a preferred embodiment of our invention, the numeral
A wire guard
The side bars
The assembled guard and blade may be permanently secured in the recess in any suitable manner, such as by fusing the front edge of the head to seal the recess, or by cementing the guard and blade in the recess, or by pressing the top and bottom of the head together to frictionally clamp the guard and blade in the recess.
The razor may be used for a single shaving or for the life of the blade and may then be disposed of.
From the foregoing, the construction and operation of the device will be readily understood and further explanation is believed to be unnecessary. However, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction shown and described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the appended claim.
What is claimed as new is as follows:
A safety razor comprising a handle having a flat head projecting laterally in front of the handle, said head having a recess in its front edge and formed with a pair of grooves each parallel to an adjacent side edge of the head, and a guard composed of a pair of
