To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, William R. Christie, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented anew and Improved Razor, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The purpose of the invention is to provide a razor of the ordinary type which is furnished with an exceedingly thin removable blade and to so construct the razor that the blade can be quickly and conveniently introduced in its holder and securely fastened to place, the blade when not needed being inclosed in the handle in the customary manner.
The invention consists in the novel construction and combination of the several parts, as will be hereinafter fully set forth, and pointed out in the claims.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
The razor practically consists of a handle
Under the foregoing construction it will be observed that a convenient razor is obtained, but one wherein the blade is very thin and is removable and replaceable, enabling the operator at any time to conveniently and quickly substitute a perfect blade for a damaged one.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent—
1. In razors, a holder provided with parallel arms, a thin blade removably located between the arms, means for supporting the blade between the arms, and a locking-sleeve constructed to slide over the arms and the back section of the blade.
2. In razors, a holder provided with parallel arms and a recess at the inner end portion of the arms, a thin blade removably located between the arms and having a nose at its rear end adapted to fit in said recess, and a locking-sleeve mounted to slide upon and having clamping relation to the said holder.
3. In a razor, a handle, a holder pivotally mounted in the handle, the said holder comprising a shank and parallel arms extending from the shank, separated throughout their length, said arms having straight inner faces and convexed outer faces, the shank being provided with an angular recess where it meets the said arms, one arm being provided with a lug upon its inner face and the other arm with a corresponding recess to receive the lug, a blade located between the said arms, which blade is of thin metal and is provided with an aperture to receive the said lug and with an angular nose at one end to enter the said recess, and a locking-sleeve adapted to slide upon and have clamping relation to the said arms and back section of the said blade, as described.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
William R. Christie.
