To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Edwell V. Edwards, a citizen of the United States, residing at Camden, in the county of Camden and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to razors and more particularly to safety razors, and has for an object to provide a device of this character whereby two edges of a blade may be available for cutting purposes.
A further object of this invention is to provide means whereby the blade may be readily attached to or detached from the handle of the razor.
Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following description and it will be understood that changes in the specific structure shown and described may be made within the scope of the claims without departing from the spirit of the invention.
In the drawings forming a portion of this specification, and in which like numerals of reference indicate similar parts in the several views,
Referring now more particularly to the drawings, there is shown a safety razor
The elongated body is offset laterally as shown at
At the upper end, the body is provided with an outwardly extending pin
Disposed near the offset portion
A flat blade
It will thus be seen that a simple and inexpensive safety razor is provided, and it is obvious that the construction, as shown, is such that both cutting edges of the blade may be used without changing the blade. When it is desired to remove a blade it will of course be understood that the member
What is claimed is:
1. A safety razor comprising an elongated body having a portion between its ends offset in a lateral direction, a headed pin carried by said body at the upper end thereof, a pin carried by said body and located above said offset portion, a removable blade having recessed portions at its upper and lower edges for engagement with said pins, guards carried by said body and disposed adjacent to the cutting edges of said blade, and a swinging, blade clamping member carried by said body.
2. A safety razor comprising an elongated body offset between its ends to bring portions into different planes, the portion at one side of the offset having guards at its edges, a pin carried by said portion adjacent to the offset, said body having a finger stamped therefrom oppositely to the offset, a retaining plate pivoted to the body, and lying normally with a portion beneath the finger, said plate being movable out of such a position, and a blade engaged between the plate and the body.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature, in-presence of two witnesses.
Elwell V. Edwards.
