To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, George Johnson and Frederick James McLaren, both subjects of the King of Great Britain, residing at Fremantle, in the State of Western Australia, Commonwealth of Australia, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Removable Safety-Guards for Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention has been designed to render existing razors to be safety in their action by providing them with a removable, safety guard attachment which will prevent the razor from cutting or injuring the flesh and irrespective of the angle at which the razor may be held.
A further advantage of our invention consists in that the razor if held at the non-correct angle will not shave, but will only slide harmlessly over the face by reason of the guard.
In order to clearly explain the use and construction of the appliance reference will now be made to the attached drawings in which:—
In these figures
The guard is constructed of a saddle back form as shown and having the double or twin sides
The guard is slipped on and along the razor from the end
In order to obtain a more delicate adjustment of the guard and to regulate the exposure of the razor edge
What we claim as our invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:—
1. A safety guard for razors comprising a rear portion, convergent sides connected to said rear portion, and a guide extending upwardly and outwardly from one of the sides.
2. A safety guard for razors comprising the rear portion
In testimony whereof we have hereunto set our hands in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Frederick James McLaren.
