To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Richard Kampfe, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
The object of my invention is to provide an improved safety-razor.
My invention embraces certain new and useful features in the frame, pertaining to the means by which the lather and cuttings are caught and retained.
My invention is fully illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in the several figures of which like letters indicate like parts.
My invention is put together as follows: The blank
It will be seen that the portion
The advantage of my improved frame is, that it affords perfect facility for the lather to escape from the edge of the cutting-blade, and does not permit it to become lodged under the cutting-blade, and at the same time affords a convenient receptacle to catch and retain the lather and prevent the same from dropping off or coming into contact with the hand.
Another advantage is, that the improved shape of my frame permits the handle and stropping-handle to be packed within the folds of the frame, so that the whole shall occupy but a small compass.
Having fully described my invention, what I claim is—
1. An improved frame for a safety-razor, consisting of a flat portion adapted to serve as a blade-holder, and another hollow portion adapted to receive and retain the lather and cuttings, the two connected by a straight portion provided with large openings, to permit the escape of the lather, &c., into said hollow portion.
2. The improved frame consisting of the portion
