To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I , Philip H. Unsinger, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Fremont, in the county of Sandusky and State of Ohio, have invented, a certain new and useful Safety-Razor; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
My invention relates to safety-razors, and has for its object the provision of an improved simple, durable and highly efficient razor of this class, which is composed of a minimum number of parts, is cheap of manufacture, and is capable of being easily and quickly assembled or taken apart for the purpose of cleaning or the removal of its blade.
The operation, construction and arrangement of the parts of the invention are fully described in the following specification, and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which,—
Referring to the drawings,
The means employed for firmly securing a blade to the holder comprises a clamp-bar
In the use of my invention, a blade
I desire it to be understood that my invention is not limited to any specific form or arrangement of parts except in so far as such limitations are specified in the claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is,—
1. A safety-razor, comprising a holder stamped from sheet-metal and having its rear edge bent up to form a blade-stop, its ends provided with integral tongues which are bent down at right angles to the holder face and have their lower edges tapered relative to the plane of the holder face, said holder also having its forward portion provided with an elongated opening, the outer rim of said opening being stamped to provide a guard-bar having sinuous edges and a smooth face contacting surface, a handle attached to the holder, a blade carried by the holder and a clamp-bar in removable sliding engagement with the holder and, adapted to bear against the blade and having its ends turned downwardly and inwardly to embrace the ends of the holder and slidingly cooperate with the tapered edges of said tongue to cause the clamp to hold the blade firmly to the holder.
2. A safety-razor, comprising a holder stamped from sheet-metal and provided at its rear edge with a blade-stop, at its ends with integral tongues which project downwardly at right-angles to the holder-face and have their lower edges tapered relative to the plane of the holder face, and having its forward edge curved inwardly and provided with an elongated opening and its forward corners, provided with integral lugs, which latter are bent upon the body of the holder to form guards for the points of the blade, the outer rim of said opening being stamped to form a sinuous guard-bar having a smooth face contacting surface, a handle attached to the holder, a blade carried by the holder with its cutting edge disposed over said opening, and a clamp having its ends bent to engage the tapered edge of said tongues and adapted to cooperate with the holder to clamp the blade thereto.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Philip H. Unsinger.
