To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Terence F. Curley, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, (borough of Manhattan,) in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Blade-Holder for Razor-Blades, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The object of the invention is to provide a new and improved blade holder for razor blades used in ordinary and safety razors, and to be held in strapping and honing machines and other devices, the blade holder being arranged to hold a blade securely in position during the use of the razor, machine or other device, and to allow an interchange of blades of different thicknesses.
The invention consists of novel features and parts and combinations of the same, which will be more fully described hereinafter and then pointed out in the claims.
A practical embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views.
The blade holder
The blade holder
In making and using thin razor blades
As illustrated in
The blade holder shown and described is very simple in construction and can be readily used in razors, honing or strapping machines and other devices for holding very thin blades, concave or other blades.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
1. A blade holder for holding razor blades in position, and comprising an exterior tubular shell cylindrical in shape and a removable tubular inner lining cylindrical in shape and closely fitting the shell, the lining and shell having registering longitudinal slots for the passage of the razor blade, the said external shell being provided at the walls of its slot with outwardly extending clamping flanges adapted to engage opposite faces of the razor blade.
2. A blade holder for holding razor blades in position, and comprising an exterior hollow metal shell formed of resilient material, the said shell being cylindrical in shape and having a longitudinal slot, the shell being provided at the walls of said slot with outwardly extending clamping members, and a removable hollow cylindrical lining for said shell formed of a metal different from that of the shell, the said lining fitting closely within the shell and having a longitudinal slot registering with the slot in the shell.
3. The combination with a razor blade having a cylindrical back, of a blade holder comprising an exterior hollow cylindrical shell slotted in the direction of its length and provided at the walls of its slot with integral clamping arms adapted to engage opposite faces of the razor blade, and an interior cylindrical lining fitting within the said shell, the cylindrical back of the razor blade snugly fitting into the lining of the shell.
4. The combination with a razor blade having a cylindrical back provided with an exterior covering, of a blade holder comprising an exterior tubular shell cylindrical in shape, the said shell being slotted in the direction of its length and provided with integral clamping arms, and a removable interior cylindrical lining for the said shell having a registering slot, the covered back of the blade fitting closely within the said lining.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Terence F. Curley.
