To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Ridner P. Cafferty, Jr., a citizen of the United States, residing at Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Handles for Safety-Razor Blades, of which the following is a specification, such as will enable those skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to safety-razor blades of the class known as “Gillette” razors; and the object thereof is to provide a handle for the blades of razors of this class with which the blade may be securely connected at any time for the purpose of honing or sharpening said blade.
The invention is fully disclosed in the following specification, of which the accompanying drawings form a part, in which the separate parts or my improvement are designated by suitable reference characters in each of the views, and in which—
In the practice of my improvement, as shown in
When the handle is made in the manner shown in
In the construction shown in
In both forms of construction shown the handle is hollow or tubular in form and the separate parts thereof are segmental in cross-section; but the separate parts of the handle need not necessarily be segmental in cross-section, and other forms may be adopted, if desired, and any suitable form of a spring may be employed to separate the parts of the handle in the construction shown in
This device is simple in construction and comparatively inexpensive and may be used as a handle for all safety-razor blades of the class described.
Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
A handle for razor-blades, said handle being tubular in form and larger at one end than at the other and composed of two parts, which are concavo-convex in cross-section, said parts being connected at one end and flattened at the other end to form parallel flat jaws, one of said jaws being provided at intervals with holes or apertures and the other with lugs adapted to pass through said holes or apertures, a spring placed between the handle members for forcing them apart and a sleeve mounted on said handle and adapted when moved in one direction to force the separate parts thereof and the said jaws together.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention I have signed my name, in presence of the subscribing witnesses, this 3d day of February, 1906.
