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 and useful 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, and particularly to that class in which the blade is clamped to the guard-plate through the medium of the handle, the object being a simple arrangement of parts, whereby the blade may be easily clamped in position and adjusted, as desired.
As herein shown, the guard-plate
Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. A safety-razor, comprising a plate formed at one edge with teeth, and with a centrally-arranged slot, a blade-holder adapted to receive a blade, said holder provided with a hub having a shoulder adapted to extend through the slot in the said plate, and a handle adapted for engagement with said hub whereby the blade-holder is clamped to said plate, substantially as described.
2. A safety-razor, comprising a plate having a slot, a blade-holder adapted to receive a blade, and formed at one side with a hub, a shoulder on said hub adapted to extend through said slot, and a handle having a screw-threaded stem adapted to enter said hub, whereby the blade-holder is clamped to the plate by the end of the handle, substantially as described.
3. A safety-razor comprising a plate formed at one edge with teeth, and with a centrally-arranged opening, a blade-holder adapted to receive a blade, said holder provided with a hub, and a handle adapted for engagement with said hub through the opening in a plate whereby the blade-holder is clamped to said plate substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
John A. Butler.
