To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Rhinehardt H. Brown, a citizen of the United States, residing at Fremont, in the county of Sandusky and State of Ohio, have invented new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention is a razor of that class known as “safety-razors,” having a removable blade and a guard-plate, the blade being sharpened on both edges, so that either edge can be used.
The object of the invention is to form an improved device of the kind characterized particularly by an improved base-plate and guard and by improved means for holding the blade thereto. Another special feature is a detachable handle which may be secured to the base-plate for packing in small space and will also hold the blade while it is being stropped.
In the accompanying drawings,
Referring specifically to the drawings,
One end of the handle
On the rear or under side of the base-plate
The blade is alike on both sides or edges, so that either cutting edge may be used. In use the edge next to the guard
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. A razor comprising a plate provided with a handle and having spaced spring-clips at its ends, and a blade held on the plate by said clips which take over the ends of the blade and having lugs projecting into the spaces between the clips.
2. In a razor, a blade-holding plate having a tongue bent over backwardly at one end thereof to form a clip, and a handle extending parallel to the plate and detachably engaged with the clip.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Rhinehardt H. Brown.
