This invention relates to a safety razor and more particularly to a novel razor blade holder and handle therefor.
An object of this invention is to provide a razor blade holder which can be so economically manufactured that it can be sold at a very low cost with or without a supply of razor blades, and which can be readily discarded or thrown away upon the exhaustion of the initial supply of blades.
As a result, the present invention supplies the need for an economical razor to take the place of one forgotten or lost in transit or while traveling or when needed, particularly when unexpectedly called away from home or for use in guest rooms, hotels, motels or the like.
Another object is to provide an improved, simplified razor blade holder utilizing injector type blades which are currently available and sold in injector blade dispensers, and which according to this invention the blade dispenser may be readily used in conjunction with the improved holder to provide a handle means therefor. As the improved holder of this invention can be economically manufactured, each injector blade dispenser may be provided with a novel holder of this invention so that a user may be provided with a fresh, clean razor with every purchase cf such blades, and thereafter the holder may be discarded along with the blade dispenser upon exhaustion of the blade supply.
A further object of this invention is to render the improved holder of this invention readily adaptable for use with a half section of a double edge razor blade in the event a preference of blades is desired.
The objects of this invention are accomplished by an improved, ruggedly constructed, razor blade holder consisting of a backing plate for supporting either an injector type blade or a half section of a double edge blade, depending on one’s preference, and a clamping plate having resilient spring clips for releasably securing the two plates together to clamp therebetween the blade. The backing member is further provided with means for locating and properly maintaining the blade in position as the clamping plate is fixed in place and a skin guard adjacent the cutting edge of the blade. According to this invention, the holder further includes a novel handle-receiving means which is readily adapted for receiving the end finger or tongue of an injected blade dispenser which forms the handle therefor.
A feature of this invention resides in the provision of an improved safety razor which is inexpensively produced, rugged in construction and positive in operation.
Another feature of this invention resides in the provision of an improved razor blade holder having a novel means whereby said holder can be readily assembled or connected to the finger of an injector blade dispenser to form the handle means therefor.
Other features and advantages will be apparent from the specification and claim when considered with the drawings in which;
Fig. 7 is a detail view of a double edge razor illustrating the manner in which the blade may be fractured for use in the improved holder of this invention.
The safety razor of this invention as illustrated in
Heretofore, the injector blade dispenser
Since the injector type razor blades are commonly sold in dispensers independently of the particular razor blade holder with which they are adapted to be used, it is my intention to provide a relatively simple, improved razor blade holder
According to this invention, the rib portion
Integrally connected to the flat portion
According to this invention, the razor blade
As illustrated, the front plate
According to this invention, a double edge blade may be utilized in the holder of this invention if a preference of blades is desired or in the event an injector blade
As shown in
Therefore, according to this invention, the improved holder is constructed of relatively few parts which can be readily manufactured by a relatively simple stamping operation. As a result, the improved holder may be readily sold together with a razor blade dispenser without materially increasing the cost of the blades so retailed. Consequently a purchaser is insured of a fresh, clean razor with each supply of blades. Since the improved holder can be so economically produced, it can be readily thrown away or expended upon the exhaustion of the entire supply of razor blades.
Variations and modifications may be made within the scope of the claim and portions of the improvements may be used without others.
An improved, inexpensively constructed, throw-away safety razor comprising a sheet metal, backing plate having a flat portion provided with opposed inwardly bent tabs on the ends thereof, said flat portion adapted to support a razor blade in face to face contact therewith and slidably received between said inwardly bent tabs, said backing plate having integral therewith a half round transverse rib providing a skin guard, said rib extending substantially coextensive with said flat portion and stiffening the same against warping or bending, projecting tabs at the ends of the rib providing stops for determinately positioning the cutting edge of the blade with respect to the rib to shield the corners of the blade and prevent cutting and scratching of the skin of the user, a front clamping plate having a pair of reversely bent spring clips for releasably securing said clamping plate on said backing plate, said plates adapted to firmly wedge said blade therebetween to prevent relative movement of the blade and a handle-receiving means integrally formed with said backing plate and angularly disposed relative thereto, said means including an elongate flat portion having a flange substantially coextensive along one marginal portion and a pair of spaced clip tabs positioned along the opposite margin thereof for receiving therebetween a handle means.
