To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Philip H. Unsinger, a citizen of the United States, residing at Fremont, in the county of Sandusky and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
The purpose and object of my improvement is to provide a razor of the class named, which has fewer parts; is less complicated; and easier to set together and take apart, than other razors of that kind; and furthermore in my improvement the blade is so held as to stiffen it throughout its length.
Referring now to the drawings:
Coming to a more specific description of my invention: Generally speaking the blade
The two end teeth
Having now fully described my invention, what I claim is:
1. An improvement in safety razors, comprising a razor blade, clamped and held between a combed guard-plate upon the one side thereof, and a retaining plate upon the other; in combination with said plates, and screwless means for clamping and holding said blade therebetween, a part of which means, performs the further function of alining the knife edge of said blade with reference to the guard edge of said guard plate, the back edge of said guard plate being provided with a rearwardly curved, and handle-connecting shank, made integral therewith, substantially as set forth.
2. An improvement in safety razors comprising: a razor blade, clamped and held between a shanked guard-plate upon the one side thereof, and a retaining plate upon the other; in combination with said plates, and means for clamping and holding said blade therebetween, which comprises: a flanged end, and latchkeeper, for each of the ends of said retaining plate, together with a coöperating latch, one for each such keeper, and which is pivoted to the rear side of said guard plate; and a finger which rises from the upper edge of said retaining plate, which said finger curves rearward and is made to enter an aperture in said shank, and when in position, to have the back thereof engaged by said shank; substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
Philip H. Unsinger.
