To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Thomas Owens, a citizen of United States, residing at Wilkes-Barre, in the county of Luzerne, State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Razor-Guards; 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.
It is the object of this invention to provide a razor guard that shall embrace a common comb, so that the razor may be employed not only for shaving purposes but also as a hair clipper.
The nature of the invention may be clearly ascertained from the device portrayed in the annexed drawing, forming a part of this specification, in view of which it will first be described with respect to its construction and mode of operation, and then be distinctly pointed out in the subjoined claims.
Of the said drawing:
Similar numerals of reference designate similar parts or features, as the case may be, wherever they occur.
In the drawing,
It will be noted that by moving the spacing blocks
By the means described the comb may act as a guard in shaving and the blade of the razor may be adjusted so as to shave quite close or less close as may be desired and again it may be employed as a hair clipper so as to shave the hair on the neck quite closely or leaving it to project at some length from the surface passed over. The razor may be released from the comb by pressing on the upper part of the clamping plate and it will be held in place after once being put in position by the action of the spring between the two plates.
Under the construction and arrangement shown, it will be noted that a very simple and highly efficient razor guard or hair plane may be produced.
What is claimed is:
A razor guard having in combination, a perforated comb, a plate having lateral arms, the ends of which are projected through said perforations said plate being provided with two perforated ears, a second plate having two perforated ears registering with the ears of said first mentioned plate, a pin connecting said ears, a coil spring wound about said pin having projecting ends pressing against said plates, and shank provided blocks adapted to be adjustably held between the teeth of said comb, and bear against one side of a razor blade, all arranged substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof, I affix my signature, in presence of two witnesses.
