To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Adolph Werner, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Milwaukee, in the county of Milwaukee and State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Razors; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof.
The improvements consist in what is herein shown, described and claimed; the object of the invention being to provide efficient safety type razors of such simple construction as will permit of the same being furnished the trade more economically than those of common knowledge.
Referring by letter to the drawings,
It is preferable, as herein shown, to utilize a two-edge blade, the guard being correspondingly toothed, and the construction and arrangement of parts is such that stiff, high tempered interchangeable blades may be employed, such blades being preferred for the reason that they are hard enough to hold their edges longer than softer thin flexible blades.
1. A razor comprising a backing having inwardly extending longitudinally slotted ears at its ends, the slot of one ear being longer than that of the other ear, a blade and guard having end lugs engageable with said slots, and a lever handle fulcrumed in connection with said ears to clamp against the guard in working position.
2. A razor comprising a backing having inwardly extending hook-ears at its ends, a blade and guard centeres in connection with the backing, and a continuous suitably bent wire handle having fulcrum engagement with the backing ears to clamp at its ends against said guard when in working position.
3. A razor comprising a backing having inwardly extending hook-ears at its ends, a blade and guard centered in connection with the backing, the guard-being provided with outer indentations, and a continuous suitably bent wire handle having fulcrum engagement with the backing ears and engageable at its ends with the indentations of said guard against which it clamps when in working position.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand at Milwaukee in the county of Milwaukee and State of Wisconsin in the presence of two witnesses.
