To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Eugene J. Fuchs, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of Few 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; and the object of my invention is to provide a new and improved safety-razor which is simple in construction and which can easily be cleaned.
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 safety-razor is constructed with a casing
On the upper edge of each end wall of the casing
For the purpose of holding the blade-support in normal position for shaving, two flat friction-springs
On my improved razor the guard is rigid and always retains its position in relation to the casing.
As the blade-support can easily be raised the inner surfaces of the guard-teeth and the interior of the casing can easily be cleaned and wiped thoroughly dry.
Having now described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. In a safety-razor, the combination with a casing, having a guard at its front, of a blade-support, pivoted at its front edge to the front part of the casing to swing upward and outward, over the guard, so as to entirely open up the top of the casing and to give free access to the guard for cleaning the same, substantially as herein shown and described.
2. In a safety-razor, the combination with a casing, having fixed guard-teeth on its front, and angle-lugs projecting toward each other from the upper edges of the end walls of the casing, of a blade-support pivoted at the front of the casing to swing up and toward the front over the guard and having notches in its ends for the passage of the end lugs, a screw on which the support rests and a screw for holding the blade on the support, substantially as herein shown and described.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention I have signed my name, in presence of two witnesses, this 10th day of March, 1896.
Eugene J. Fuchs.
