To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, Frederick Kampfe, Richard Kampfe, and Otto Kampfe, citizens of the United States, and residents of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Razor-Blade Carriers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a new and improved carrier or holder for razor blades, into which the blades are placed when they are to be shipped by mail or otherwise.
The object of our invention is to provide a new and improved carrier for safety razor blades which is so constructed that the blades are held firmly and securely and cannot become displaced during shipment or by handling the package containing them and cannot become damaged or defaced while being inserted into or removed from the carrier.
The invention consists in a blade carrier composed of a piece of sheet metal provided with a longitudinal flange and a longitudinal rib and spring tongues extending from the flange over the face of said sheet metal piece.
The invention also consists in details of construction as will be fully described hereinafter and finally pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, and in which similar letters of reference indicate like parts in all the views,
The carrier is composed of a piece
After the blades have been placed upon the carrier in the manner shown the said carrier with the blades is placed into a metal or other box
One or two blades can be placed in a carrier as may be desired.
Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. A razor blade carrier, composed of a piece of sheet metal, provided on each longitudinal edge with a flange which flanges extend in opposite directions, spring tongues on said flanges extending over the faces of the said piece and a rib projecting from each face of the said piece, substantially as herein shown and described.
2. A razor blade carrier composed of a piece of sheet metal having a flange on each longitudinal edge, said flange extending in opposite directions, spring tongues extending from said flanges over the faces of the sheet metal piece and a longitudinal rib projecting from each face of the piece, adjacent to that edge of the piece opposite the one from which the flange projects in the same direction as said rib, substantially as herein shown and described.
In testimony that we claim the foregoing as our invention we have signed our names, in presence of two witnesses, this 4th day of September, 1894.
