To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Frederick H. Arnold, a citizen of the United States, residing at Reading, in the county of Berks and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in safety-razors; and the object of the invention is to provide a novel means of securing the cutting-blade to the guard-plate.
The invention is intended more particularly as an improvement on the device shown and described in my pending application, Serial No. 275,514. In the device referred to I employ two clamping-plates hooked together at their outer ends and held together at their inner ends by means of a handle screwed onto shanks formed on said plates.
In my present device I use but a single plate and provide simple means for securing the blade thereto.
The invention is more fully described in the following specification, and clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which—
When it is desired to place the blade in position in the guard, the extension
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
In a safety-razor the combination of a guard-plate provided with a hook at its outer end, a reduced stem-like portion at its inner end, a tapered plug formed on the extremity of said stem portion, ears formed on said stem portion, a cam pivotally mounted between said ears, positioning-lugs formed on said guard-plate, a blade formed with a recess at its outer end and a reduced portion at its inner end adapted to be clamped to said plate by said cam, a tubular handle adapted to engage either end of said plug while lying on the same plane with said blade.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Frederick H. Arnold.
