To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Frederick H. Arnold, citizen of the United States, residing at Reading, in the county of Berks and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in safety razors and the object of the invention is to provide a novel means of securing a cutting blade between a pair of clamping plates.
The invention is intended more particularly as an improvement on the device shown and described in my pending application Serial No. 275,514.
In the device referred to I employ two clamping plates hooked together at their outer ends and held together at their inner ends by means of a handle screwed onto shanks formed on said plates.
In my present device I secure the plates at their outer ends permanently and provide a simple snap or catch for securing them at their inner ends, thus securing the plates together by means other than the screwing on of the handle.
The invention is more fully described in the following specifications and clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:—
Having thus fully described my invention what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:—
1. A safety razor comprising a guard plate, a clamping plate pivoted thereto for edgewise movement only, a blade lying between said plates, and means for holding the free ends of the plates together.
2. A safety razor comprising a guard plate, a clamping plate pivoted thereto for edgewise movement only, a blade lying between said plates, said guard plate having an indentation and the clamping plate having a lug which is adapted to snap into engagement with said indentation.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Frederick H. Arnold.
