To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Peter Antonio Benet, a citizen of the Republic of Cuba, and a resident of Boston, in the county of Suffolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented a new and Improved Pocket Safety-Razor, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
This invention relates to safety-razors; and the object of the invention is to provide a razor of this class which can be conveniently carried in one's pocket and readily adapted for immediate use.
A special object of the invention is to provide a device of such construction that it will have little tendency to wear the lining of a pocket and which will also occupy a small space.
The invention consists in the construction and combination of parts to be more fully described hereinafter and definitely set forth in the claims.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Referring more particularly to the parts,
Within the chamber
I provide a guard-plate
In using the device the guard-plate, together with the blade and wedge-plate assembled together, will be normally carried within the chamber
The handle of the device would have any shape desired. It would be constructed so as to be very light.
The device is evidently very simple in construction and admirably fulfils its purpose.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent—
1. A pocket-razor comprising a handle, a stud normally depressed within said handle, means for extending said stud from said handle, and means for supporting a blade on said stud.
2. A pocket-razor having a handle with an opening in the extremity thereof, a depressible stud mounted in said opening, a member engaging said stud and affording means for projecting the same from said handle, a blade, and means for supporting said blade on said stud.
3. A pocket-razor comprising a handle having an opening in the extremity thereof, a threaded stud mounted in said opening, a spring constraining said stud inwardly, a cap rotatably mounted on the extremity of said handle and engaging the threads of said stud, a guard-plate detachably connected to the said stud and a blade carried by said guard-plate.
4. A pocket safety-razor comprising a handle having an angular opening in the extremity thereof, a stud having an angular neck mounted in said opening and having a threaded shank projecting therebeyond, a spring under the head of said stud and tending to force the same inwardly, a cap rotatably mounted on the extremity of said handle and engaging the threads of said stud, and a guard-plate having a threaded opening adapted to receive the extremity of said stud and adapted to carry the blade.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Peter Antonio Benet.
