To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, Frederick Kampfe, Otto Kampfe, and Richard Kampfe, of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in that class of razors known as “safety-razors.”
The object of our invention is to provide a safety-razor in which the blade and guard can be easily and rapidly adjusted in relation to each other, and which razor has a handle which can be folded over the guard and holder for the purpose of forming a casing.
The invention consists in the combination, with the blade, of an adjustable guard-holder and two curved handle-sections pivoted to the opposite edges of the plate and adapted to be used as handles, or folded over the guard and blade-holder to form a casing, all as will be fully described hereinafter, and finally pointed out in the claims.

Having thus described our invention, we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent—
1. In a safety-razor, the combination, with a plate on which the razor and guard-holder are held, of a cover formed of two curved sections hinged to the edges of the plate, which curved sections also serve as a handle when swung down, substantially as shown and described.
2. In a safety-razor, the combination, with a plate and guard-holders on the same, of two curved plates hinged to the said edges of said plate, one of the curved plates being provided with a pin and the other with an aperture, substantially as shown and described.
3. In a safety-razor, the combination, with a plate, of a blade-holder pivoted on the same, a sliding plate below the pivoted blade-holder, and a guard on said sliding plate, substantially as shown and described.
4. In a safety-razor, the combination, with a plate, of a blade-holder pivoted on the same, a spring acting on the blade-holder, and a screw screwed into the blade-holder, substantially as shown and described.
5. In a safety-razor, the combination, with a plate, of a blade-holder pivoted on the same, a sliding plate below the blade-holder, a guard on the sliding plate, a screw passing through the sliding plate and through the plate on which said plate slides, and a nut on said screw, substantially as shown and described.
6. In a safety-razor, the combination, with a plate, of a blade-holder pivoted on the same, a pivoted latch on the blade-holder, a rod in the blade-holder, the ends of which rod project beyond the sides of the blade-holder and form a support for the latch, substantially as shown and described.
7. A safety-razor provided with a guard composed of wire bent alternately in opposite directions, substantially as shown and described.
In testimony that we claim the foregoing as our invention we have signed our names in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
