To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Andrew Partridge, a citizen of the United States, residing at Springfield, Hampden county, Massachusetts, have invented certain newand useful Improvements in Adjustable Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a class of razors in which the danger of cutting the person is sought to be avoided by mechanical contrivances; and my object is to provide a means of adjusting the blade employed and in a simple and novel construction and arrangement of parts.
I am aware that devices for the holding of a blade in juxtaposition to a guard for the above purpose have been employed in safety-razors, and that holders therefor of more or less complexity have been constructed; but in my present device I have adopted a form of construction and arrangement of parts entirely different from any other heretofore known to me, by means of which I am able to apply to a holder my novel means of adjusting the blade with reference to the guard, whereby the closeness of the cut can be varied, all of which is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which—

As above stated, the slots or channels
Having now fully described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. In a safety-razor, the frame
2. In a safety-razor, a guard having diagonal channels or slots, as
3. In a safety-razor, the combination, with the blade, of a clamp, as
4. In a safety-razor, the combination, with the blade, of a clamp provided with a screw, as
