To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, George Washington Anderson, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Hinton, county of Summers, and State of West Virginia, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Combination Hair Cutting and Combing Devices, 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 an improved combination hair cutting and combing device, the object thereof being to provide an article of this class which is adaptable for alternative use as a means for shaving and cutting hair, a further object being to provide a device adaptable for constant use as a comb. It is simple in construction, durable, and inexpensive, and its several parts are so constructed as to enable a user to readily disconnect and assemble them for purposes of cleaning, sharpening, &c.
My invention consists in a short razor-blade and a comb much longer than the blade, combined with a clamp which passes over the outer edges of the blade and the comb and clamps the two together, the clamp being provided with lugs for catching between the teeth of the comb and set-screws which are passed through the clamp and securely fasten the comb and blade together, as will be more fully described hereinafter.
In the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification,
In the practice of my invention I employ an ordinary razor
As a means for connecting the comb and razor-blade together I employ clamps
In the operation and use of my device a barber or other user can comb a person's hair with the extended end portion
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. As a hair cutting and combing device, the combination of a razor-blade and a comb of greater length than the blade, metallic clamps with lugs engaging between the teeth of the comb, adjusting-screws to adjust the razor-blade vertically and clamping-screws with flexible caps on their ends to maintain secure connection between the comb and razor-blade, substantially as shown and described.
2. As a hair cutting and combing device, the combination of the razor-blade
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention I have signed my name, in presence of two witnesses, this 30th day of August, 1899.
George Washington Anderson.
