To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Gerhard Tittmann, a citizen of Germany, and resident of Foche, near Solingen, Germany, have invented new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification. This invention relates to a safety razor in which the blade is removably held against the guard by means of a clamping plate which is tilted with its lower edge against the lower end of the blade. In this way the blade is securely clamped in position, while the guard may be entirely exposed if the razor is to be cleaned.
In the accompanying drawings:
A safety razor provided with a guard, a clamp plate, laterally extending fulcrums on one of said parts, slotted wings on the other part removably engaged by said fulcrums, a perforation in the guard above the fulcrums, and tilting means passing through said perforation and adapted to engage the clamp plate, substantially as described.
Signed by me at Dusseldorf, Germany, this tenth day of April 1907.
