To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Albert Grah, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cincinnati, in the county of Hamilton and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Razors, of which the following is a specification.
The object of my invention is to maintain the razor blade and handle in such relation to each other that the blade will remain in any position to which it may be moved for the purpose of holding the blade central of the handle slot, thereby protecting the edge from striking either side of the handle and preventing the blade from moving or dropping from one position to another relative to the handle whereby injury to the user or to the blade might result.
My invention consists in providing constant frictional, yielding or spring contact between the handle and shank of the blade, in the construction, combination and arrangement of parts and in the same as an article of manufacture as herein set forth.
In the drawing which serves to illustrate my invention:
The construction of my invention is preferably substantially as follows: The shank
The split or bifurcated spring shank allows the razor to be easily opened or closed to the desired positions without permitting the edge of the blade to strike against either side of the handle because the frictional engagement between the handle and shank will always hold the edge of the blade in a position centrally of the slot
As an article of manufacture, a razor comprising a slotted handle
