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 Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in safety-razors.
The object of our invention is to provide a new and improved safety-razor which is so constructed that the lather can easily be removed and the razor thoroughly cleaned with great facility, and a further object of our invention is to provide a skin-stretching attachment which can readily be applied for stretching the skin in advance of the cutting-edge of the blade.
The invention consists in a safety-razor having its blade-holding casing or frame constructed with a hinged top provided at its front edge with a guard.
The invention further consists in the combination, with said casing, of a detachable skin-stretcher which can be held on the casing in advance of the front of the same.
The invention also consists in the construction and combination of parts and details, 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 like letters of reference indicate like parts in all the views,
The shell frame or casing
When the blade
After the razor has been used and the blade removed the hinged top can be swung up and easily wiped clean, thus facilitating the cleaning of the casing.
The skin-stretcher consists of an angle-plate
To the upturned front edge of the angle-plate
In case the skin-stretcher is not required it can easily be detached and the razor used without the same.
Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. In a safety-razor, the combination with a blade-holding casing, having two end cross-pieces on its top, of a hinged top between said cross-pieces, which hinged top rests loosely and entirety disconnected upon lugs of the side pieces, to adapt it to be swung up for removing the lather and which hinged top has a guard at its free edge, substantially as herein shown and described.
2. In a safety-razor, the combination with a blade-holding casing, having a cross-piece at each end of its top, each cross-piece being provided with a downwardly-bent lug, an adjustable stop in each lug, a top hinged to said casing between the end cross-pieces to rest loosely on said adjustable stops and in such a manner that it can be readily lifted, said hinged top being provided with a guard at its front edge, 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 17th day of September, 1895.
