United States Patent Office.

Franz J. Halbekann, of Solingen, Germany, assignor to to the firm of C. Friedr. Kratz & Co. of Wald, Solingen, Germany. Shaving Apparatus
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 731,562, dated June 23, 1903. Application filed December 26, 1901. Serial No. 87,292. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Franz Joseph Halbekann, a subject of the Emperor of Germany, and a resident of Solingen, Rhenish Province, Prussia, Germany, have invented a new and useful Shaving Apparatus, of which the following is a specification.

The present invention relates to improvements in shaving apparatus represented in the accompanying drawings, in which—

Figure 1 shows the apparatus with closed, and Fig. 2 with open, rear stop. Fig. 3 is a side elevation, partly in section.

The handle a supports a box b with two laterally-fixed jaws f f′, preferably overlapping the blade or so arranged as to firmly grip the edge of the blade and inclined toward each other. The blade e, of a suitable form, is clamped between them and is inclined toward the front. The rear stop of the blade consists of two levers g g′, fulcrumed at h and forced into the position Fig. 1 by a superposed spring i.

d is an adjustable plate in the nature of a guard, having the front edge parallel to the edge of the knife-blade. It can be adjusted by the screw c c′ to expose more or less of the edge of the blade e.

If it is desired to remove the blade e from the apparatus, the levers g g′ are pressed down into the position shown in Fig. 2, and then the blade may be pulled out rearwardly.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is—

1. A shaving apparatus provided with a clamping device for the blade consisting of two laterally-fixed jaws, and a rear stop in the form of spring-actuated levers and which may be withdrawn by turning the levers, substantially as described.

2. A shaving apparatus provided with a clamping device for the blade consisting of two laterally-fixed jaws, and a rear stop in the form of spring-actuated levers which may be withdrawn by turning the levers, in combination with an adjustable plate having its front edge parallel with the edge of the blade, substantially as described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention I have signed my name in presence of two subscribing witnesses.

F. J. Halbekann.
