Description

SAMUEL GRISWOLD, OF CAMP POINT, ILLINOIS.
PENHOLDER.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 29, 1916.
Application filed October 30, 1913. Serial No. 798,241.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, SAMUEL GRISWOLD,-l citizen of the United States, and a resident of Camp Point, in the county of Adams and State of Illinois, have invented a new and Improved Penholder, of which the folalso a novel absorbent cushion covering the sheath, the covering consisting of corn pith in tubular form suitably united to the exterior of the sheath.
It is well known that blotting paper, while readily absorbent of ink, soon becomes useless owing to the pores becoming filled with the dried ink, and therefore blotting paper, after short use, must be discarded. Similarly, cork, when it has taken up any appreciable quantity of ink, will not absorb, or at least will not readily absorb additional ink after the first ink has dried. This characteristic is materially less, if not wholly absent from the corn pith, in which the ink runs so readily from the disposing point that the pores are maintained substantially open, and repeated applications of ink are possible at the same surface of the ith. p The invention will be more particularly explained in the specific description hereinafter to be given.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views.
Figure 1 is a longitudinal elevation of a penholder embodying my invention; Fig. 2 is a side elevation, the pen case or sheath and the pens being omitted; and Fig. 3 is V a cross section on an enlarged scale, on the line 33 of Fig. 1.
In forming a penholder and appurtenances in accordance with my invention, the holder 10 has formed thereon or secured thereto, a forwardly extending section 11 of reduced diameter, the front end of which terminates short of the extreme front end of the holder. A case or sheath 12 in the form of a sleeve is removably fitted over the front end of the holder, the rear end of the sleeve overlapping the holder at the back of the reduced forward extension 11, as at 13, and fitting friction tight. The front end of the handle beyond the reduced portion 11 has a head 14, preferably cylindrical, of a diameter sufficiently less than the internal diameter of the sleeve to accommodate the shank 15 of a pen 16, between the said head and the sheath, to hold the pen tightly in position for writing.
"Rearward of the front end of the handle provision is made for housing a pen or pens within the sheath, and between the same and the reduced portion 11 of the handle. For the purpose I form the handle with an enlargement 17, which defines the forward end of an annular chamber 18 surrounding the reduced portion 11. The enlargement 17 is approximately the same in diameter as the internal diameter of the sheath, so as to constitute a closure for the annular chamber 18.
WVithin the chamber 18, I provide means to retain a pen or pens 16 in the present instance said means consists of a band 19 concentric with the reduced portion 11, and adapted to slide longitudinally thereof in the chamber 18. The said band is adapted to be moved to the position indicated in full lines in Fig. 1, to encircle the pen or pens 16* and tightly hold the same against the reduced portion 11 of the holder, or said band may be slid to a rearward position, as indicated by dotted lines, so that the pens 16 may be removed or replaced, it being understood that the sheath 12 is removed in placing a pen in the chamber 18 or removing it therefrom.
Forward of the enlargement 17 the holder is preferably made tapering, as at 20, so that the head 14 will not engage the shank 15 of the pen 16 along the whole length of the latter, the head more effectively gripping the pen when there is a free portion of the shank 15 at the rear of the head.
By the described construction it will be obvious that a pen may be placed in the holder to project from the front of the sheath in position for writing, as at 16 in Fig. 1, and that the said pen and the sheath claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters may be removed and the pen housed similarly to the pen 16*; thus provision is made for protecting the pen when not in use, as when being carried in the pocket, or when being placed in a desk.
The sheath or case 12 has a cylindrical covering 12 of resilient, absorbent corn pith, which forms a cushion to the fingers of the user, and moreover serves to absorb and take up any ink that may result from too deep a dipping of the pen in the ink well, or any ink that may accidentally adhere to the finger tips. The corn pith cushion I have found possesses special absorbent properties as applied to a penholder, in that any ink coming in contact therewith at the front end will be instantly absorbed and does not appreciably harden the corn pith, or destroy its resiliency.
Having thus described my invention, I
