To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Ellsworth D. Becker, a citizen of the United States, residing at Reading, in the county of Berks and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in safety razors and the object of the invention is to construct a device that may be easily and rapidly secured to an ordinary pocket comb in such manner that it will hold a razor blade in close proximity to the comb teeth, said teeth acting as a guard therefor.
A further object is to provide a simple means for stropping or honing the blades.
The invention consists in the parts and improvements hereinafter described and set forth in the appended claims.
To assemble the parts, the blade is placed in the holder with the lugs
It is evident that the device may be secured to the comb at any point along its surface and that it may be secured to either side thereof, thus facilitating its use as a razor with either hand.
In the top edge of the comb I form a slot
It is evident that my blade holder may be secured to any ordinary pocket comb of the proper width as the lugs
Having thus fully described my invention what I claim is:—
1. A safety razor and blade stropping device comprising a comb having a longitudinal slot in its upper edge and a perforation therein, a spring plate formed with a tooth secured to said comb in such manner that its tooth will lie normally in said perforation, a removable blade holder adapted to snap over the edges of said comb and a cutting blade held between said holder and comb.
2. In a razor, the combination of a comb, a clamping piece provided with hooked arms which engage both the edges of the comb and a flat blade inserted between the two, the hooked arms engaging the teeth being bent around the edge of said teeth, the clamping piece and the hooked arms lying close to the comb and teeth, whereby said comb serves as a guard for said razor.
3. In a razor, the combination of a comb, a flat blade, and a clamping piece for uniting the blade with the comb, provided with a hooked extension upon its lower edge, capable of embracing the toothed edge of the comb with the clamping piece and hooked extension lying close to the comb and teeth, and a hooked arm on its upper edge capable of embracing the back of the comb.
4. A clamping piece for the purpose of securing a flat jade to the side of a comb, provided with hooked extensions, whereby the said clamping piece may be secured both to the toothed edge and the back of the comb, and having a slot whereby distortion of the main portion of the clamp due to the strain of clamping is prevented.
5. A razor comprising a clamping piece for securing a notched flat blade to the comb, comprising means for attaching the clamp to the comb and a lug passing through the notches in the blade and between the teeth of the comb to prevent lateral movement between the clamp and the comb.
6. A razor comprising a comb, a notched flat blade, and a clamping piece for securing the blade to the comb provided with means for attaching the clamp to the comb, and means to engage the notched blade.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature, in presence of two witnesses.
