To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Joseph J. Steinharter, a citizen of the United States, residing at Newark, in the county of Essex and State of New Jersey, 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 as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
This invention relates to a safety razor that is designed to provide a casing to hold a razor blade or blades, and is designed to provide, adjacent to the cutting edges of the blade or blades, a roller which acts both as a guard, and also tends to rotate and to draw back, from the edge of the blade, the lather and the hairs that at present accumulate adjacent to the cutting edges, and tends to keep the cutting edge of the blade cleaner and less apt to have its efficiency interfered with by the accumulation aforesaid.
The invention is designed to provide a roller of this kind in conjunction also with a pair of blades set at angles to one another, these blades acting as a guard for each other when either is being used, this form of razor being described and illustrated, at length, in my application filed on March 9, 1907, Ser. No. 361,536.
Another object of the invention is to provide the blades, forming this improved razor, with means for limiting the movement of the blades into the casing holding them, and another new feature of the device is a razor of this kind, the side pieces of which are swiveled so that the casing can be folded to be packed in a small space.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which
In the form of razor shown in
Close up to the cutting edges, and underneath them, is arranged a roller
If desired, I can make the side frames as shown in
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is:—
1. A razor comprising a casing, a pair of blades arranged in the casing at an angle to one another and with their cutting edges close together, and a roller arranged in the casing and adapted to rotate between the blades and in close proximity to their cutting edges.
2. A safety razor comprising a casing formed of a pair of members on each end, the members being arranged in hinged relation, blades in the casing, one being arranged in each member, and a roller arranged between the members and arranged to rotate between the blades and in-close proximity to their cutting edges.
3. A safety razor comprising a pair of hinged members, and blades in the members with their cutting edges adjacent to the axis of the hinges.
4. A safety razor comprising a pair of hinged members, blades in the members with their cutting edges adjacent to the axis of the hinges, and one adapted to act as a guard for the other when the hinged members are swung apart.
5. A safety razor comprising a pair of hinged members, blades in the members with their cutting edges adjacent to the axis of the hinges, and one adapted to act as a guard for the other when the hinged members are swung apart, and a roller between the members and adapted to roll adjacent to the cutting edges of the blades.
6. A safety razor comprising hinged members, blades in the members with their cuting edges adjacent to the axis of the hinges, a roller journaled in the hinged members and adapted to rotate between the cutting edges of the blades.
In testimony, that I claim the foregoing, I have hereunto set my hand this 15th day of March 1907.
Joseph J. Steinharter.
