I, Jacob Schick, a citizen of the United States of America, of 78, Harrison Street, East Orange, State of New Jersey, United States of America, do hereby declare the nature of this invention and in what manner the same is to be performed, to be particularly described and ascertained in and by the following statement:—
This invention relates to magazine safety razors of the kind that are adapted to contain a stack of wafer blades which are fed from the stack successively into the guard, which thus permits the easy replacement of a dull blade by a sharp one.
The invention is specifically directed to the provision of a package to contain the stack of blades, which package or holder containing the stack can be readily inserted into the razor and thus be placed in operative position to cooperate with the other parts thereof. This permits the sale and use of razor blades which need not be handled separately for insertion into the razor and which are also sanitary because they need not be handled or actually exposed until they are in shaving position.
The invention consists in a clip or holder for use in connection with a magazine safety razor which employs blades in stacked relation and is provided with means for feeding them successively to a shaving position, said clip being adapted to receive a stack of blades thus forming a unitary device for insertion into the razor.
I am aware that ribbon types of blades have been used in razors and also that blades have been fed from the handle into the guard of razors but the use of separately stacked blades supplied in a package and to be operatively projected into position within the guard one by one, is as far as I am aware, broadly novel.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which—

The blades are carried in the handle which has a recess
In the form shown in
I prefer to supply the blades stacked a clip ready for use in razors of the kind described so that when made by automatic machinery and inserted in the clips, the stack of blades will be safe from injury to their edges.
I place the blades in a clip preferably made as shown at
In the form of razor shown in
Having now particularly described and ascertained the nature of my said invention and in what manner the same is to be performed, I declare that what I claim is:—
1. A clip or holder for use in connection with a magazine safety razor which employs blades in stacked relation and is provided with means for feeding them successively to a shaving position, said clip being adapted to receive a stack of blades thus forming a unitary device for insertion into the razor.
2. A clip or holder as claimed in Claim 1 having an open side to permit removal of the blades when inserted into the razor.
3. A clip as claimed in Claim 1 or 2 provided with means for holding the blades in stacked relation with their cutting edges out of contact with the clip.
4. A clip or holder as claimed in Claim 2 or 3 having spring means, adapted to move the blades towards the open side thereof.
5. A clip as claimed in Claim 4 wherein the spring means is carried thereby.
6. A clip as claimed in Claims 2 and 4 having an opening opposite the open side thereof to permit the entry of the spring means, said means being carried by the holder.
7. A clip as claimed in any of the preceding claims wherein said clip comprises a side portion and end portions extending from opposite ends thereof, said side and end portions having along one edge of each thereof narrow inwardly extending flanges constituting a support for the stack of blades, and said end portions having at the edges thereof opposite and parallel to said side portion narrow inturned flanges adapted to engage the extreme corners of the cutting edges of the blades.
8. A form of construction for use in connection with a magazine safety razor which employs blades in stacked relation and is provided with means for feeding them successively to a shaving position, comprising a holder and a clip adapted to receive a stack of blades said clip being adapted to be inserted in the holder and the latter being adapted to be inserted into position in the razor.
9. The forms of clips or holders substantially as described or as illustrated in the accompanying drawings.
