To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Charles H. Shaw, of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Razors, of which the following is a specification.
My improvement relates to the class of razors termed “safety-razors.”
I will describe in detail a razor embodying my improvement, and then point out the novel features in a claim.
In the accompanying drawings,
Similar letters of reference designate corresponding parts in both figures.
When the razor is used, the roller
The frame in which the roller-guard is supported and the receptacle for the hair and lather are made in one integral piece, the construction being such that the aforesaid receptacle has closed ends. This is very advantageous, because it can be made quickly and cheaply, and the hair and lather will be effectually retained in the receptacle.
What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
The combination, with a frame comprising a receptacle for hair and lather, made integral therewith and having closed ends, of a roller-guard for the razor-blade, mounted in said frame above the receptacle, and a resilient retaining device for the razor-blade, rigidly secured to the frame, substantially as specified.
Charles H. Shaw.
