To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, William J. Moore, of Washington, in the District of Columbia, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Safety-Razors; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which—
The object of my invention has been to provide a safety-razor which shall have the advantages of being exceedingly simple in construction and in operation, of permitting the blade to be removed and the holder cleaned with the greatest facility, and of permitting the blade to be readily adjusted relative to the holder; and to such ends my invention consists in the safety-razor hereinafter specified.
In carrying my invention into practice I provide a holder consisting of a bottom plate
It will be observed that the construction and operation of my razor are of the greatest simplicity. To clamp or remove or adjust the blade, it is only necessary to give a partial turn to the handle relative to the holder. The only part projecting over the blade is the lip
It is obvious that changes can be made in the above-illustrated construction within the spirit of my invention.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is—
1. In a safety-razor, the combination of a blade, a holder consisting of a base-plate forming a guard for the blade and a lip or projection extending over said blade, the blade having a lip-engaging edge or corner, and a clamping device that impinges on the side of the blade next the base-plate, at a point that rocks the blade on its lip-engaging edge or corner to press the cutting edge of the blade against the base-plate.
2. In a safety-razor, the combination of a blade, a holder consisting of a base-plate forming a guard for the blade and a lip or projection extending over the blade, the blade being thickened where it lies between said lip and said base-plate, and a screw engaging the thickened portion of the blade next the base-plate, the blade having an edge or corner that engages the lip at a point, between the cutting edge of the blade and the point of contact of the screw with the blade.
3. In a safety-razor, the combination of a blade, a holder consisting of a base-plate forming a guard for the blade and a lip or projection extending over said blade, the blade having a lip-engaging edge or corner, and a screw secured to or forming part of a handle passing through the base-plate and impinging upon the surface of the blade adjacent thereto at a point to cause the blade to rock or tilt on its lip-engaging edge or shoulder and press its cutting edge agai
In testimony that I claim the foregoing
William J. Moore.
