Be it known that I, John W. Offutt, of Ellwood City, Lawrence county, Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Razor, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which—
My invention relates to the class of ordinary razors having a blade which may be connected either rigidly or pivotally to a handle at the end.
The object of the invention is to provide a new and improved construction whereby removable blades, either single-edged or double-edged, may be employed in connection with a clamping-back.
In the drawings,
At one end the back or holder is provided with any suitable extension
The advantages of my invention result from the use of the resilient back with the clamping-plates, which are held against the blade by spring-pressure, also from the use of the elliptical back, which enables the key to be used.
Variations may be made in the form and arrangement of the parts without departing from my invention.
1. In a razor, a hollow back of resilient material, having extended clamping-plates arranged to hold a removable blade by spring-pressure, said back being open at the end and above the blade to receive a spreading or releasing key above the blade; substantially as described.
2. In a razor, a hollow back of resilient material, having extended substantially parallel clamping-plates, and a removable blade held between the said plates, said blades and plates having coacting projections and recesses, and the back being open to receive a spreading-tool above the blade; substantially as described.
3. In a razor, a hollow back of spring material forming a substantially complete ellipse, and having its free edges extended to form clamping-plates for holding a removable blade, said back having a shank extension; substantially as described.
4. In a razor, a tubular back of elliptical form having clamping-plates arranged to hold the blade by spring-pressure, and a turning-key arranged to spread the blades; substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
John W. Offutt.
