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 with a minimum number of 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 handle and a guard and blade, each of which latter two are provided with a tapered shank adapted to be engaged and held in the handle by friction, the principal object of the invention being its simplicity and the ease with which it can be assembled.
The invention is more fully described in the following specifications and clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which—
The entire device consists of a handle
The handle is formed with a tapered central opening
The guard is formed with the usual teeth
To assemble the parts, the blade is placed against the guard, the hooks
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
In a safety-razor a handle having a tapered central opening in one end and a guard having an angled projection near either end and a tapered shank one of whose faces is flush with the surface of the guard, in combination with a blade having a corresponding shank and a rectangular perforation near either end adapted to engage said projections, said shanks being held together by pressing said handle thereon.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Frederick H. Arnold.
