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 of the class in which the blade is arranged to lie on the same plane and in line with the handle.
The object of the present invention is to provide a razor of simple and cheap construction, having but few parts, and capable of being used with either hand, provision being made for cutting from both sides of the guard-plate.
The invention consists of a single-piece holder comprising a handle and guard and a slotted double-edge blade capable of being quickly and accurately placed in position.
The invention is more fully described in the following specification and clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which—
The entire holder comprises a handle
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
In a safety-razor a holder having a guard formed with positioning-pins, a pin loosely mounted in the center thereof, a spring secured to and moving with said pin, a thumb-piece secured to the upper end of said pin in combination with a blade of thin metal having two cutting edges and a central elongated slot adapted to engage said spring and perforations adapted to engage said positioning-pins.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Frederick H. Arnold.
