To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, Thomas Addison Bell and Ellis Jerome Uhle, citizens of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York, State of New York, have invented a new and useful Safety-Razor, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to safety razors.
The object of the invention is to provide a novel form of razor of this character that shall, when drawn in straight lines over the face, secure a smooth shearing cut, whereby the operation of shaving will materially be facilitated, and the labor and care exercised in the act be measurably decreased.
In the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, and in which like characters of reference indicate corresponding parts,
As shown in
In forming the blank, shown in
It will be observed by reference to
The supporting handle is preferably formed of a plurality of tapered telescopic sections
The handle sections are held in operative or extended position by frictional contact with each other, there being a slot
In inserting the blade within the holder, its back is pressed against the inner wall of the keeper
It will be seen from the foregoing description that although the improvements herein defined are simple in character, that they will mutually coöperate in the production of a thoroughly effective article and one that will reduce to a minimum the labor of securing a clean and painless shave.
1. A safety razor blade holder having its guard fingers disposed obliquely to its back, one end of the holder being open and the other end thereof provided with a stop forming a closure therefor.
2. A safety razor blade holder having guard fingers arranged at an angle to its back and provided with oppositely disposed keepers, and a blade stop forming a closure for both keepers at one end of the holder.
3. A safety razor blade holder having oppositely disposed blade keepers arranged at an angle to each other and that operate by friction to retain a blade in position.
4. As a new article of manufacture, a blade holder for safety razors embodying, a shank, an arm projecting therefrom and constituting a closure for one end of the shank, a keeper disposed at right angles to the length of the shank, a second keeper disposed obliquely to the length of the shank and embodying guard fingers, and a blade stop at one end of the holder.
In testimony that we claim the foregoing as ow own, we have hereto affixed our signatures in the presence of two witnesses.
