To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, John A. Butler, of Southington, in the county of Hartford and State of Connecticut, have invented a new Improvement in Safety-Razors; and I do hereby declare the following, when taken in connection with the accompanying drawings and the letters of reference marked thereon, to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, and which said drawings constitute part of this specification, and represent, in—
This invention relates to an improvement in safety-razors, the object being a simple arrangement which permits the ready adjustment of the blade and convenience in separating the parts for packing; and it consists in the construction as hereinafter described, and particularly recited in the claims.
As herein shown, I employ a blade-holder comprising a plate
Instead of forming the blade with a threaded opening for engagement with the threaded stud on the handle the blade may be formed with a slot
By the term “extending into the blade,” as hereinafter used, I wish to be understood as including a blade having a threaded opening for engagement with the threaded stud on the handle or a solid blade through which the said stud extends.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. A safety-razor, comprising a plate having rear and side flanges and forwardly-extending teeth, a blade adapted to rest upon the upper face of said plate, and a handle having a stud projecting upward through the plate and the blade whereby the blade may be clamped to the plate, substantially as described.
2. A safety-razor comprising a plate having teeth at its forward end, and a centrally-arranged slot and blade adapted to rest upon the upper face of said plate and formed with a threaded opening, and a handle provided at its upper end with a threaded stud adapted to pass through said plate and into engagement with the blade, substantially as described.
3. A safety-razor, comprising a plate provided at its rear and sides with upwardly-extending flanges, and at its forward edge with teeth, and having a centrally-arranged slot, a blade adapted to rest upon the upper face of said plate, and having a threaded opening registering with the slot in the plate, and a handle formed at its upper end with a threaded stud, adapted to pass through said slot and into engagement with the said blade, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
John A. Butler.
