To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, August Müller, a citizen of Germany, residing at Merscheid, Germany, have invented new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a safety-razor distinguished by the simplicity of its construction and the material of which its constituent parts, with the exception of the blade, are made. Its object is to provide a shaving instrument which has all the advantages of other safety-razors and is made of a cheap and at the same time durable material, avoiding an oxidation of the several parts and facilitating their cleaning.
Another object is to give it a construction rendering the setting and adjusting of the blade in the instrument very easy and simple.
In the accompanying drawings,
The several constituent parts of the razor, with the exception of the blade, are made of a non-oxidizing material, such as hard rubber or any other suitable substance possessing elasticity and durability and easy to clean and not liable to rust or otherwise oxidize, even when the cleaning and wiping off has not been done with proper care. Moreover, such material is cheap and permits the manufacture of the instrument at a low cost.
When the parts are connected, the socket
What I claim as my invention, and desire to protect by Letters Patent, is—
In a safety-razor, the combination of a head with a squared plug having a rearwardly-extending tapped socket, a slotted guard adapted to be engaged by the plug, and a handle having a cup adapted to bear against the guard, a screw centered within the cup and adapted to engage the socket, and an annular recess around the screw adapted to receive said socket, substantially as specified.
Signed by me at Düsseldorf, Germany, this 20th day of January, 1904.
