To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, Daniel Wm. Odell and Edward H. Odell, of Utica, in the county of Oneida and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors; and we do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, which will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the characters of reference marked thereon, which form part of this specification.
The object of our invention is to provide a safety-razor, in which the blades are readily removable and interchangeable and effectively held, in which the handle is angularly adjustable with reference to the blade-holder, and which is simple in construction and cheaply manufactured.
The holder consists of two sheet-metal members
It will be noted that by simply removing the two screws
It will be noted that the blades are very effectively held between the members of the holder free from all looseness or tendency to vibration and are of such simple form of construction that they can be very easily and cheaply manufactured, also that the head is, in the main, adapted to be manufactured out of sheet metal and at a minimum cost.
What we claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. The combination in a safety-razor of a holder, consisting of elastic members having an angular bend therein, and a blade having a turned edge adapted to be received between the free edges of the elastic members, substantially as set forth.
2. The combination in a safety-razor of a holder, consisting of elastic members having free edges and an angular bend, and one of the members having a serrated edge, and a blade having a turned edge adapted to be placed between the said members, substantially as set forth.
3. The combination in a safety-razor of a holder composed of two trough-shaped nesting spring members, a head to which said members are secured, removable blades adapted to be placed between the free edges of said members, and an angularly-adjustable handle on said head and projecting from the holder between the blade-holding edges, substantially as set forth.
4. The combination in a safety-razor of a holder composed of two trough-shaped nesting spring members, same being secured together at their backs and providing free spring edges, blades adapted to be placed between the free spring edges of said members, a segmental handle-base secured in the trough between the free edges and an angularly-adjustable handle mounted on said segmental handle-base, substantially as set forth.
5. The combination in a safety-razor of a holder composed of two trough-shaped nesting spring parts, having a segmental-notch handle-base secured in the bottom of the trough, a screw-threaded handle-shank pivotally secured to said segmental base, and a tubular handle screw-threaded onto said shank, and removable blades adapted to be placed between the spring edges of said holder, substantially as set forth.
In witness whereof we have affixed our signatures in presence of two witnesses, this 3rd day of February, 1906.
Daniel Wm. Odell.
