Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. `7, 1915.
Application led May 13, 1915. Serial N0. 27,759.
To all whom z'zmag/ concern.'
Be it known that I, HERMAN BnLDooH,
a citizen of the United States, and a resident of New York, borough of Brooklyn, in
the county of Kings and State of New York, f
have made and invented certain. new and useful Improvements 1n Razor-Blade Holders, of which the following 1s a specification.
This invention relates to a razor blade holder, and has vfor its object to provide an articleI which will most rigidly and securely grip raf/.or blades, allowing them to be conveniently stropped and sharpened, the device being so formed that it may be used for hold ing and stropping a variety of different types of razor blades.
A further object is to provide an article of this class which is of simple and neat construction, and one that can be economically manufactured.
A further object of the invention is to so form the device that the blades may be easily and quickly inserted' in place in the holder and so clamped, the procedure being such that the danger of being cut by the edge of the razor blade is reduced toa minimum and practically eliminated.
A further object is to provide a holder, for razor blades, employing but few parts and so constructed that the device will withstand considerable and hard usage, and will not be materially affected by water, t0 which it is necessarily exposed from time to time during its ordinary use.
Other objects and advantages will appear as the description proceeds, wherein it is to be understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention can be made within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spiritthereof.
The preferred embodiment of my inven- -tion is disclosed in the accompanying draw* ings, wherein z- Figure l is a view in perspective of the razor blade holder embodying the character# istie features of my invention, the holder being illustrated in its opened position prior to the Securement cfa razor blade therein. Fig. 2 is a view in plan of a Gillette razor blade, the same being one type of blade which my holder is particularly adapted to -ner in which a razor engage or clamp. Fig. 3 is a view in plan lofthe holder with a Gillette razor blade in position therein, illustrating the convenient manner 1n which bothl edges of the blade may be stropped, and the manner in which the blade is secured and locked in position. F ig. 4 is a view in longitudinal' section, taken on the line of Fig. 3. Fig..5 is an en-l larged View of the up er portion of the holder and illustrating t e manner in which one end of the Gillette blade is held inplace. Fig. 6 1s a view in cross-section taken on the line 6-6 of Fig. 5. Fig. 7 is a detail view 1n perspective of the locking ring by means of which the separable portions of the holder are forcibly moved together for the clamping o f a razor blade. Fig. 8 is a fragmental view in plan of the device', showing the manblade of the Durham- Duplex type is held. v Fig. 9 is a 'view in cross-section taken on theline 9 -9Q0f Fig. 8. Fig. 10 is a detail View in plan of this type of razor blade. Fig. 11 is a similar v1ew,sh ow1ng the manner in which a somewhat different type of blade is held; the
blade inthis instance being provided with spring metal, such as German silver, and
struck from a single length, which is bent upon itself at its central portion, which latter forms the lower or handle end 16 of the device. The clamping members arevof thin but wide material, and'of such length as to be conveniently held inthe hand, so that a blade which is secured between the" free ends of' the' clamping member may be conveniently stropped. A The free ends 17-18 of the clamping members are each provided allow they holder to engage, and properly clamp, razor blades of that type which are provided with one edge thickened and "reiniwith the longitudinal extending recesses 19-19 which forced, the thickened and reinforce-l edgel opening 22 in the razor blade, such as, for
example, one of that type manufactured by the Gillette Razor Company, and illustrated in Fig. 2. The locking ring 24 is slidably mounted upon the clamping members 15-15 and is prevented from traveling or moving beyond the connected ends thereof bya knob or projection 25. The knob or projection y,
may ybe soldered to one' of the clamping members, but is preferably formed as dis- :closed in Fig. 4, by placing the device between suitable dies and ysoforming the projection` or lug 25 therein, the lug in this case being accompanied by a corresponding depression.v A
The locking ringlis preferably formed fromr a single Ipiece of material and is of such size thatl the clamping members are forcibly driven together as the ring is moved therealong. In order to prevent the ring from passing beyondV the free ends of the 'clamping members, they are widened somewhat at their upper extremities, as at 26. The lockingring is provided at its upper andside edges with the notches 27, which are/adapted to receive therein the lower edge of/a razor blade, and hold the same against '.fshfting, this action being clearly illustrated in F ig. 5. The yupper or end opening 22 of the blade is placedover the lug 20, and the clamping member moved into forcible contact with the lower and curved edge of thev blade 28, it being noted that the lower edge of the blade is formed as an arc of a circle materially greater "than, an arc described about the 11:33.20 as the center. The holding action for lblades of "the 'above-mentioned type thus depends on' a positive engagement with the upper opening of the blade, a frictional engagement' with the lower edge thereof by the locking ring, and the general frictional engagement of the blade by the clamping members caused by their' forcible contact therewith on account of the position lof thelocking ring, all of which result in the'most/rigid-securement of the blade.
The clampingmembers are so formed that as the flocking ring is moved to its position at thejoined ends ofthe clamping' members, their free ends will. spring apart, as illustrated 'in Fig. l, allowing the blade to immediately drop therefrom, thus minimizing thela'mountf of handling of the blade.
ltype manufactured by the Dlli'liaiii-l)uplex Company, and illustrated in Fig. 10, the lougitudinal slot 29 is placed over the holding lug or member 20 and the locking ring moved toward the same, this type of blade .being of such length and Ythickness that the locking ring 24 docs not ordinarily Contact with the lower edge of the blade but moves the clamping members into such forced contact therewith as to hold the blade rigidly in position, allowing it to be conveniently stropped and Without danger of it shifting during such procedure.
The recesses 19 which are provided in the clamping members are adapted to receive the reinforced edges SO of that type of blade, which is illustrated in Figs. 11 to 13, this being similar to the blades as manufactured by the Gem Safety Razor Company, and others. As the locking ring 24, is moved to the position as illustrated in Fig. 11, the clamping members are brought into forcible contact with the razor blade and rigidly lock it in position within the holder and allow it to be conveniently stropped and sharpened.
.The device as thus constructed is adapted for use with a variety of different types of ,safety razor blades, is of neat and attractive appearance, and may be economically manu- -faetured, involving but few operations and forms a convenient, as well as effective,
means for holdingr razor blades for stropping.
