To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Henry B. Leach, a citizen of the United States, residing at Boston, in the county of Suffolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Safety-Razors, of which the following, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, is a specification.
The object of my invention is to provide a safety-razor with a sliding front or blade-holding plate, to which is attached a guard, said guard being made integral with or rigidly attached to the front or blade-holding plate.
Another object of my invention is to provide a handle that can be easily attached to or detached from the razor-frame.
I attain these objects by the mechanism shown in the accompanying drawings, in which—
Similar letters refer to similar parts throughout the several views.
Referring to the drawings,
E is the sliding front or blade resting plate and guard with upper part bent at right angles with said plate.
The second part of my invention relates to my improved handle
1. In a safety-razor, the combination, with a razor-blade and its frame or holder, of a sliding front plate and guard, against which the blade is held in a fixed position by end clips, and a suitable clamping device, substantially as described, and for the purpose set forth.
2. In a safety-razor, the combination of the razor-blade, its frame or holder, having clips
3. In a safety-razor, the combination, with a frame or blade-holder, of a removable handle provided with a rod having an angular part and an actuating-screw, said angular part arranged and adapted to be inserted endwise into an aperture of the same diameter as the rod and angular part in the back plate of the frame or blade-holder, one end of the handle bearing against the outside of the back plate of the frame or blade-holder and the angular part of the rod bearing against the inside of said back plate, substantially as described, and for the purpose set forth.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification, in the presence of two subscribing witnesses, on this the 29th day of April, A. D. 1890.
Henry B. Leach.
