To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Frederick H. Arnold, a citizen of the United States, residing at Reading, in the county of Berks and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in safety-razors of the class in which the blade is arranged to lie on the same plane and in line with the handle.
The object of the invention is to provide a razor of simple and cheap construction having but few parts and capable of being used with either hand, provision being made for cutting from both sides of the guard-plate.
The invention consists of a single-piece holder comprising a handle and guard and a slotted double-edge blade capable of being quickly and accurately placed in position thereon.
The invention is more fully described in the following specification and clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which—
The entire holder comprises a handle
The guard is formed with a stationary leg
The outer end of the guard is formed with a slot
When it is desired to place the blade in position, the legs are closed by pressing the movable leg
The blade may be reversed, if desired, as the legs and slots are centrally disposed.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
In a safety-razor a holder having a guard formed integral therewith, a stationary leg on said guard projecting from both faces thereof, a foot formed on the lower end of said leg, a movable leg in the opposite end of said guard, a foot on the lower end of said leg, a rod formed integral with said movable leg and a coiled spring located on said rod between said legs in combination with a blade of thin metal having two cutting edges and elongated slots adapted to engage said feet.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Frederick H. Arnold.
