To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, August Wm. Scheuber, a citizen of the United States, residing at Manhattan borough, New York city, in the county and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a safety-razor in which various operations—such as adjusting the blade, cleansing, and drying—can be readily or satisfactorily accomplished; and the invention resides in certain features of construction set forth in the following specification and claims and illustrated in the annexed drawings, in which—
The casing is shown comprising the two parts
When the blade is to be removed, the spring
In the construction in which blade-retaining clips were fixed to or remained in proximity with the top of the case or the blade-support such clips would be apt to catch a towel or interfere with the wiping or drying of the blade-support, and as such clips were apt to catch or retain more or less moisture, especially at the corners or angles, rusting of the blade was liable to be thus started or caused. By having the clip swing entirely back or clear of the case top easy access is given for wiping or drying the entire blade-support, as also the clip. In other words, the clips which extend from the casing and which are objectionable as interfering with cleaning and drying are here obviated or done away with.
The clip, as noted, is shown as comprising the swinging arms, with cross-bar
In the modification shown in
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. A safety-razor casing or frame having a blade-supporting portion and a clip made to swing clear of the blade-support to leave the latter accessible for cleaning and drying and a spring arranged to normally hold the clip in engagement with the blade substantially as described.
2. A safety-razor casing comprising hinged or opening sections, a clip made to hold the blade in place and to lock the sections in closed position, and a spring arranged to normally hold the clip in engagement with the blade and the sections closed, substantially as described.
3. A safety-razor casing or frame comprising opening or pivoted sections, one of the sections forming a blade-support, and the other section having a clip made to engage the blade and to lock the sections, and a spring attached to the clip-carrying section and arranged to normally hold the clip in engagement with the blade and the sections locked, substantially as described.
4. A safety-razor casing or frame having a blade-supporting portion and a clip connected by a spring-hinge to the rear of the casing so as to be capable of being swung or snapped back clear of the blade and also of pressing or being swung onto the blade and to automatically move or adjust itself to vary the blade-receiving space or contact with the blade for holding the latter in place substantially as described.
5. A safety-razor casing or frame having a blade-supporting portion and a spring-hinged clip said spring being made to act directly on the hinge so as to allow the clip to be swung away from the case substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
August Wm. Scheuber.
