SAFETY-RAZOR.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Oct. 14 1913.

Application filed August 7, 1911. Serial No. 642,755.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Vroroa W. Srrns, a citizen of the United States, residing at Pittsburgh, in the county of Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Safety-Razors, of which improvement the following is a specification.

My invention relates to safety razors, and has for its objects to provide a razor in which the blade thereof may be stropped without removing the same from the holder, and in which the blade and holder may be adjusted or turned in various positions with respect to the handle, thus permitting the operator to hold the razor handle in the most convenient position and at the same time adjust the blade so as to either operate the same with a shearing motion, or with the usual scraping motion.

With the above objects in view, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, and in certain parts, improvements, and combinations as will be hereinafter fully described and particularly pointed out in the appended claim.

The specification includes the accompanying drawings, in which is shown the invention, and in describing the same in detail and operation, each of said detail parts is given and referred to by its individual reference numeral, said drawings representing the following views:

'Figure 1 is a side elevation of the razor with the blade turned parallel with and locked to the handle for stropping. Fig. 2 is a view of the reverse side. Fig. 3 is a side elevation, showing the blade and its holder turned at right angles to the handle. Fig. i is a plan elevation of Fig. 3.

The device here shown, comprises a handle 1, the shank portion 2 thereof being provided with a slidable or adjustable sleeve 2',

and has a reduced flattened surface portion 3 formed upon its underside leaving a shoulder at the handle end thereof and terminating in a lug 4:. A blade holding bar 5, having a projection at one end, is also provided with a flattened reduced portion 6 extending part way along its upper side to and beneath a lug 6 of the holder, the lug at the end of the handle shank projecting beneath the lug of the holder, a pivoting screw 7 be ing passed through said lugs into and piv- 'otally securing the holder to the handle, so that it may be adjusted thereon and held in its adjusted position by a slight frictional engagement between 'the said bar and handle shank. The blade holder is further provided with a longitudinally disposed slot, suitably inclined, to receive the blade 8, a set screw 9 being carried by the holder to clamp the blade firmly thereto, said blade being provided with a guard 10 slidably fitted over one side thereof and secured thereto by the turned over lugs 1111.

In practice, the razor may be used, as shown by Fig. 4, with the blade and its holder adjusted upon the pivot screw 7 and so held at any desired angle with respect to the position of the handle, as for instance, to the angles shown by the dotted lines XX, to suit the convenience of the operator, thus permitting a shearing action during cutting, or, if preferred, it may be used in the ordinary manner, as shown by the full lines. for straight cutting.

The sleeve 2', forming the locking means, during st-ropping, is to be adjusted so as to cover the projection 5 of the holder, as shown on Figs. 1 and 2, thus holding the blade rigid and preventing turning thereof out of alinementwith the handle. It is also apparent that the razor may be employed in its locked form, if desired.

Variations or modifications in the structure shown may be made at will and be within the limits of the appended claim.

Having shown and described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

In a safety razor, the combination with a uniformly flat and thin blade having a guard slidably applied thereto, of a blade holder, and a handle pivotally attached thereto, said blade holder comprising a bar having a longitudinally disposed slit formed in the under side thereof and within which one edge of the blade is fitted, the upper side of said bar having its surface flattened from one end to and terminating beneath an overprojecting lug formed upon the holder at about midway its length, and said handle comprising a handle portion proper and an integral shank, said shank portion being flattened upon its blade holder connecting side and terminating in a lug projecting beneath and by which the same is adjustably attached by a pivot to said over-projecting signed my name in the presence of two sub lug of the holder bar said holder, during scribing Witnesses. use, adapted to be ad usted upon its pivot and so retained by frictional engagement VICTOR SIPES' 5 with the handle shank to suit the conven- In the presence of ience of the operator. R. M. SIPEs,

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto R. S. HARRISON.
