To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Leonard B. Gaylor, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Newton Center, county of Middlesex, State of Massachusetts, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which—
The most perfected form of safety-razor as heretofore put upon the market has been found useful for the purpose intended. Nevertheless they embody certain defects which it is the purpose of this present invention to obviate. There are also certain additional features present not heretofore contemplated.
A shearing cut, as is well known, is as desirable in razors as in other cutting instruments. Also simplicity in construction, ease in cleansing, and ease in assembling the parts are desirable, and under this present invention I accomplish all of these desired results and in addition improve the appearance of the article and reduce its cost.
Referring to the drawings,
All of the parts are preferably made of metal, although other suitable material may be substituted, if desired. This is particularly true of the handle and terminal finishing device
In operation the apparatus will be use
It will be noted that under my construction the blade is perfectly flat. Thus its primary cost is reduced to the minimum and more easily handled and transported than if curved, and there is also no possibility of its being cracked by reason of its having to
Having described my invention, I claim—
1. In a safety-razor a handle and a blade-holder pivotally connected together, whereby the holder may be tilted into different angled positions relative to the handle and means to clamp and positively hold the holder in an angled position relative to the handle, the cutting edge of the blade lying obliquely to the direction of movement of the device when in use.
2. In a safety-razor a handle and a guard-plate of rhomboidal form pivotally connected together, the guard-plate having guard-teeth parallel to its shorter sides and the axis of the pivot lying obliquely to the edges of the plate having the guard-teeth.
3. In a safety-razor a handle and a guard-plate pivotally connected together, a blade-confining plate and means to clamp the two plates together with the blade between them, a stud upon the guard-plate having angular surfaces and a threaded spindle within the handle adapted to engage with said surfaces for clamping the guard-plate relative to the handle.
4. In a safety-razor a handle, a guard-plate, a blade-confining plate and a blade all of rhomboidal form, means to clamp the two plates together with the blade between them, the guard-plate having guard-teeth parallel with its shorter sides, a stud upon the guard-plate, whereby the handle is pivotally connected therewith, means upon the stud and other means within the handle, whereby the guard-plate and handle may be clamped and positively held at any desired angle relative to each other.
5. In a safety-razor a blade-holder comprising a guard-plate provided with teeth lying parallel to its ends, a blade-confining plate and a blade all of rhomboidal form, a handle pivotally connected to the guard-plate, the axis of the pivot lying at an angle to the edges of the guard-plate having the guard-teeth, a threaded spindle within the handle and means upon or connected with the guard-plate which engage with the end of the spindle to clamp and hold the guard-plate in any desired position relative to the handle.
6. In a safety-razor a blade-holder embodying a guard-plate provided with teeth parallel to the line of movement of the device when in use, a blade-confining plate, threaded studs or pins upon the confining-plate which pass through openings made in the guard-plate, thumb-screws to engage with said threaded pins, a stud upon the back of the guard-plate having a pivot for the handle therein arranged at an angle relative to the cutting edge of the blade, a handle pivoted by said pivot to the guard-plate and means within the handle for clamping it relative to the guard-plate in any desired tilting position.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Leonard B. Gaylor.
