To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Leo Ehrlich, of the city of St. Louis, in the State of Missouri, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, and in which—
My invention consists partly in application to a razor of a roller acting as a guard to prevent the wounding of the skin in the use of the razor, and partly in certain details of construction pointed out in the claims.
The case consists of a hollow handle,
To allow the clip to be pushed into the handle, or to permit strapping the razor, the guard is removed from the blade. The razor can of course be used with or without the guard.
In the modification shown in
The purpose of making the clip to slide within the handle is to allow the device being put into small compass when not in use.
It will be seen that the guard, substantially as shown in
I claim as my invention—
1. The combination of the handle and clip for a razor-blade telescoped together, substantially as set forth.
2. The combination of handle
In presence of—
