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 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 perforated double-edge blade capable of being quickly and accurately placed in position, the principal object being the ease and rapidity with which the blade may be placed or removed.
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 rectangular slot
When it is desired to place the blade in position, the ends of the-spring
The blade may of course, be reversed, as the perforations are central and located the same distance from either end.
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 and having a rectangular slot near either end, a spring secured to the upper face of said guard, depending legs formed on the extremities of said spring, said legs passing through said slots, feet formed on the lower ends of said legs in combination with a blade of thin sheet metal having rectangular openings adapted to register with said feet.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Frederick H. Arnold.
