To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, James J. Fetzer, a citizen of the United States, residing at Columbiana, in the county of Columbiana and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to razors of the “safety” type, and has for its object the production of an implement which is at once most convenient and effective in its operation, durable and extremely simple in its construction, and as a consequence of the latter characteristic easily cleaned and kept in order.
The invention will be hereinafter described, and particularly pointed out in the claim.
In the accompanying drawings, which form part of this specification,
Reference being had to the drawings and letters thereon,
The use of this type of razors is too well understood to require description here, and it is thought the method of assembling has been hereinbefore sufficiently set forth.
Having therefore described my invention in its preferred form of embodiment, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
In a safety-razor the combination with a blade, of a guard having blade-retaining guides to prevent lateral displacement of the blade, a clearance-space in said guard between said guides, a supporting-handle threaded through said guard above the blade, and a jam-nut for securing said blade, guard and handle together in adjusted position, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
James J. Fetzer.
