To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Frank X. George, Jr., a citizen of the United States, residing at Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, 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, and has for its principal object the production of a safety-razor or shaving device in which the blade may have a motion simulating that of the razor-blade in an ordinary hand-razor—that is, a motion oblique to the general direction of the razor.
Another object of the invention is the automatic production of this oblique movement of the blade as the razor is moved over the face.
With these and other objects in view the invention consists in the structure and in the combination of parts substantially as hereinafter described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification,
This idea of producing automatically a movement, of the razor-blade oblique to the general direction of the razor may be embodied in variously-formed structures. The one conceived as best adapted for the purpose consists of a suitable casing in which is journaled a roller to be rolled over the face and to which roller the blade is connected through gearing suitable for giving thereto the desired oblique movement. This casing is indicated in the drawings by
Any suitable handle may be provided for this shaving device, the one represented at
In drawing the razor over the face sufficient pressure is applied so that the roller
The invention claimed is—
1. In a safety-razor, the combination with the blade and casing of means for giving the blade a cutting stroke in a direction oblique to the line of travel of the razor.
2. In a safety-razor, the combination with the blade and casing of means for giving to the blade a reciprocating motion longitudinally and transversely. .
3. In a safety-razor, the combination with the casing, of a roller, a reciprocating blade and gearing connecting the blade with the roller.
4. In a safety-razor, the combination with a casing, of a clamp for holding a razor-blade, rotary crank-disks, to which said clamp is connected at its ends, a roller journaled in said casing and gearing for transmitting motion from the roller to said crank-disks.
5. In a safety-razor, the combination with a casing, of a razor-blade clamp, a roller journaled to said casing, gearing connecting said roller with said clamp for giving to the latter a longitudinal and transverse reciprocating motion and a guard on said casing opposite to said roller.
In testimony whereof T have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
