To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Morris S. Jacobson, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Razor Attachments, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
This invention relates to safety-guards for razors, and the object thereof is to provide a device of this class which is simple in construction and operation and which may be connected with any ordinary razor-blade; and with this and other objects in view the invention consists in the construction, combination, and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and claimed.
The invention is fully disclosed in the following specification, of which the accompanying drawings form a part, in which—
In the drawings forming part of this specification,
The inner end of the guard-bar
By means of the connection of the guard-bar with the clamp
The guard is movable and swings or turns from side to side in front of the edge of the razor-blade by mere pressure of the blade on the face. The movement of the guard is sufficient to permit the blade to shave but not to cut the face. When one side of the blade is placed against the face, the guard swings past the edge and to the opposite side of blade. The same movement of guard takes place when strapping or honing the razor, and this movement allows the razor to be cleaned or sharpened without removal of guard, a feature impossible and unknown to all other razor appliances.
Having fully described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent—
The combination with the blade of a razor of the herein-described guard adapted to be detachably connected therewith, and consisting of a guard-bar
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention I have signed my name, in presence of the subscribing witnesses, this 6th day of April, 1896.
Morris S. Jacobson.
