To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, James P. Tryner, of Denver, Arapahoe county, Colorado, have invented a new and Improved Razor-Guard, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The object of my invention is to provide a new and improved razor-guard for preventing the cutting-edge of the razor from cutting the person using the razor.
The invention consists in a razor-guard formed of a strip having a forked arm at each end, in the ends of the prongs of which forks rollers are journaled, one of which will be slightly above and the other slightly below the cutting-edge of the blade. On one of the prongs a check-plate is fastened, and on the upper surface of the strip a spring is fastened for pressing the blade upward.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
A metal strip,
The operation is as follows: The razor-blade
The above-described device can easily be placed in any razor-blade or removed from the same.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent—
1. A razor-guard constructed of a strip having a forked arm at each end, two rollers being journaled in the ends of the corresponding prongs of the forks, substantially as herein shown and described, and for the purpose set forth.
2. In a razor-guard, the combination, with a strip having a forked arm at each end, of a spring attached to the upper surface of the strip, substantially as herein shown and described, and for the purpose set forth.
3. A razor-guard constructed of a strip,
James P. Tryner.
