To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Jules Emile Leresche, a citizen of the Republic of France, and a resident of St. Julien-du-Sault, France, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Razors, of which the following is a specification.
The invention relates to that class of razors having removable blades, and one of the objects thereof is to so construct a razor that the removable blade may be clamped firmly and securely in place for shaving, and may be quickly and easily removed when it becomes dull, or when for any other reason it is necessary to change the blade. Other objects will appear from the hereinafter description.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in the different views of which the same reference character indicates the same part.
Referring to the drawing,

In the construction shown by
Having now described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. In a razor, a blade, a blade holder consisting of a pair of jaws and a shank to which the jaws are connected at one end, a movable clamp to force the jaws together to secure a blade in place, and means to limit the spread of the jaws when the clamp is moved.
2. In a razor, a blade, a blade holder consisting of a pair of jaws and a shank to which the jaws are integrally connected, said jaws having screw-threaded openings therein, and screws in said openings to limit the movement of the jaws, and a movable clamp to hold the jaws together.
3. In a razor, a blade holder consisting of a pair of tapered jaws, said jaws having holes therein, screws in said holes to limit the movement of the jaws, a removable blade between the jaws, and a clamp consisting of a strip of metal having downturned edges, said clamp adapted to be placed longitudinally on the jaws, the said jaws and clamp being so shaped as to permit a wedge action to draw the jaws tightly together.
4. In a razor, a blade holder consisting of a pair of jaws, said jaws being secured together at one end to form a shank and being provided with openings, screws in said openings to limit the movement of the jaws, a removable blade between the jaws, and a clamp having downturned ends secured to the back of the jaws and adapted to be moved longitudinally thereof, said jaws and clamp being so shaped that when the clamp is inserted the jaws are forced tightly together to hold the blade in place.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand at Paris, France this 16th day of June, 1906.
Jules Emile Leresche.
