To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Franz Josef Halbekann, mechanist, a citizen of the German Empire, and resident of Solingen,
In the known safety razors with an interchangeable blade capable of being used on both edges and carried by a toothed protecting plate the position of the blade on the protecting plate is determined by a covering plate connected therewith by screws. Such a securing device for the razor blade makes the interchanging of the same rather difficult. This disadvantage is overcome by the present invention in that in this case the blade is held on the protecting plate by a sliding piece which can be slid under a knob attached to the plate by a lateral slot.
In the accompanying drawing which illustrates one embodiment of the invention
As shown, the handle

For securing the blade
What I claim as my invention and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is—
In a safety razor, the combination of a handle, a protecting plate jointed to the handle and having a stud provided with a stem and a head, a blade, a sliding plate for securing the blade on the protecting plate and having a perforation through which the head of the stud can pass and a slot adjacent to said perforation for receiving the stem of the stud, and means for securing the protecting plate at any desired inclination to the handle.
In testimony whereof T have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Franz Josef Halbekann.
