To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Edward Weck, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Brooklyn, county of Kings, and state of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Razors, of which the following is a specification.
The object of this invention is to provide an article of this class with a removable blade so that whenever a blade becomes dull, it may be removed and a new one substituted therefor. This object is accomplished by my invention, one embodiment of which is described below.
For a more particular description of my invention, reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, in which,
Throughout the various views of the drawings similar reference characters designate similar parts.
My improved razor consists of a handle
While I have shown and described one embodiment of my invention, it is obvious that it is not restricted thereto, but is broad enough to cover all structures that come within the scope of the annexed claim.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is,
In a device of the class described, a handle, a holder pivoted thereto formed of one integral piece of stamped metal, said holder comprising a tang with four opposed sides adjacent to the pivot, a thumb recess, a curved back with parallel sides adapted to retain a blade, and a projection on the inner surface of the back about midway for arresting the sliding movement of the blade, a blade with backing folded over one edge of said blade and adapted to be slidably engaged by the parallel sides of the holder.
