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, county of Kings, and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Razor-Blades, of which the following is a specification.
The object of my invention is to provide a cheap, simple, durable and efficient razor blade which may be inserted in any suitable handle and which may be removed and replaced by another of identical construction whenever, for any cause, the blade becomes unsuited for use. This object is accomplished by my invention, one embodiment of which is hereinafter set forth.
For a more particular description of my invention reference is to be bad 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 blade
Having thus described my invention what I claim is.
In a device of the class described, a razor blade composed of a thin center strip with a cutting edge with a bevel ground thereon, a thin reinforce extending around the back and sides of said center strip leaving exposed the bevel adjacent to the cutting edge and a like space opposed to the bevel, a second heavy reinforce folded around the back and adjacent portions of the sides of the first reinforce, all forming one fixed composite blade.
