2. A safety-razor comprising a casing having an integral guard, a curved carrier secured at one end to the casing adjacent to the said guard, a blade-holder for carrying the blade mounted to swing on the free end of the carrier, and means for varying the curve of the carrier whereby to adjust the blade with respect to the guard..
3. A safety-razor comprising a casing having an integral guard, a curved spring-carrier secured at one end to the casing adjacent to the said guard, a blade-holder for carrying the blade mounted to swing on the free end of the carrier, and set-screws on the casing engaging the free end of the carrier for varying the curve of the same whereby to adjust the blade relative to the guard.
4. A safety-razor comprising a casing for supporting the razor-blade, a handle fulcrumed on the said casing and having a plurality of bearing-faces at its heel, and a spring on the said casing adapted to engage the said heel-bearing faces of the said handle.
