To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Franz Josef Halbekann, a citizen of the German Empire, residing at Solingen, in the Province of Rhenish Prussia and Kingdom of Prussia, Germany, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such us will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to a safety-razor having a thin steel-plate blade, for example, the peculiarity of said razor being that for the purpose of clamping the blade in position it is provided with a snap-piece which in a manner similar to that in which the snap-pieces are mounted on clasps for braces, is pivoted or revolubly mounted on the frame or plate serving for supporting the blade, and in its closed position presses resiliently against the blade, and thereby holds it firmly in position.
This razor has the advantage that with extreme quickness the blades can be inserted in position on the razor, interchanged, and, in the case of double-edged blades, reversed.
One embodiment of a razor according to the present invention is illustrated by way of example in the accompanying drawings, in which—
The razor consists of a frame or plate
What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. A razor comprising in combination a handle, a plate
2. A razor comprising in combination a handle, a plate
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Franz Josef Halbekann.
