The present invention relates to safety razors and more particularly to an improved safety razor which may be easily disposed after use.
There is need for a safety razor which is inexpensive to manufacture and which can be disposed after use. Such disposable safety razors may be stored in cabinets in washrooms on trains, airport terminals, etc., so that a person may buy one, use it in the washroom and dispose of it immediately.
In addition, such razors may be used in surgical shaving so that they may be packaged in a sterile condition, used only once and then disposed, thereby eliminating the necessity of re-sterilization.
One object of the present invention is the provision of an improved disposable razor which is adapted to be disposed after use.
Another object of the present invention is the provision of an improved disposable razor which is inexpensive to manufacture.
Another object of the present invention is the provision of an improved disposable safety razor which is molded in one piece from the same material.
Another object of the present invention is the provision of an improved disposable safety razor which may be easily stored.
Other and further objects of the invention will be obvious upon an understanding of the illustrative embodiment about to be described, or will be indicated in the appended claim, and various advantages not referred to herein will occur to one skilled in the art upon employment of the invention in practice.
A preferred embodiment of the invention has been chosen for purposes of illustration and description and is shown in the accompanying drawings, forming a part of the specification, wherein:
Referring more particularly to the drawings, the present invention comprises a single-piece safety razor
The rear edge of the head
When the razor is to be used, the blade is inserted beneath the head, and the side tongues
In use, the user merely removes the package and uses the razor for shaving purposes. After use, the razor can easily be disposed. If, for some reason, it is desired to remove the blade
It will be seen that the present invention provides an improved razor which is easily disposable after use, which can be manufactured inexpensively, and which can be molded in one piece and easily stored.
As various changes may be made in the form, construction and arrangement of the parts herein without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention and without sacrificing any of its advantages, it is to be understood that all matter herein is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.
Having thus described our invention, we claim:
A one piece disposable razor comprising a head having a rear edge and a front edge, said rear edge being recessed intermediate with its sides and including a downwardly extending flange, a toothed front guard having upstanding teeth and side plates extending rearwardly therefrom including curved upper edges adapted to cooperate with said downwardly extending flange to hold a blade therebetween, said toothed front guard being spaced below the front edge of the head to define a blade-exposing opening, a flat, thin, handle depending from the center of said toothed front guard, the plane of said handle being at right angles to the plane of said toothed front guard, said handle having a front and a rear edge, the front edge of the handle being aligned with and merging into the plane of the front edge of the toothed front guard and the rear edge of the handle being spaced from the toothed front guard.
