To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Allison H. Fleming, a citizen of the United States, residing at Fairmont, in the county of Marion and State of West Virginia, have invented a new and useful Razor-Blade Holder, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to razor blade holders and especially to devices of that general class employed for holding razor blades in stropping or honing devices.
The invention aims more particularly to provide a novel and effective holder for razor blades of that general class known as Gillette blades, where the blade is provided with a number of openings for the reception of supporting pins.
A further object of the invention is to provide a holder in the nature of a spring metal clip which may be effectively clamped on the blade, and which is of such construction as to frictionally bind within the receiving socket of the stropping or honing device.
With these and other objects in view, as will more fully hereinafter appear, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction and arrangement of parts, hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and particularly pointed out in the appended claims, it being understood that various changes in the form, proportions, size and minor details of the structure may be made without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the accompanying drawings:—
Similar numerals of reference are employed to indicate corresponding parts throughout the several figures of the drawings.
The holder comprises a sheet of spring steel or similar metal, which is bent to form two leaves
It has been found difficult in holders of this general type to prevent endwise movement of the holder and blade in the socket and to prevent movement of the holder without the employment of some auxiliary clamping means.
In the present instance this objection is overcome by slitting the back of the holder as indicated at
1. A razor blade holder comprising a spring clip having a curved back and integral leaves, the back having solid ends and being split between said ends to form outwardly bent spring tongues for frictional engagement with the walls of a socket or similar support.
2. A razor blade holder comprising a pair of leaves and an integral spring back connecting them, the back and adjacent portions of the leaves being transversely slit and the metal of the back between the two slits being cut away to form a pair of spring tongues.
3. A razor blade holder comprising a spring clip having a pair of outwardly bent socket wall binding tongues, said tongues terminating short of both ends of the holder.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto affixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
Allison H. Fleming.
