CIGAR-CUTTER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

' Patented Oct. 3, 1916.

Application filed August 26, 1914. Serial No. 858,589.

. To all whom it may concern:

' pressing the same so as to crack it; to provide a blade only a portion of which cuts the cigar; to provide means for using other portions of the blade; to provide improved means for opening and closing the cutter; to secure simplicity of construction and operation, and to obtain other advantages and results as may be brought out in the following description. 7

Referring to the accompanying drawings in which like numerals of reference indicate the same parts throughout the several views, Figure 1 is an elevation of a cigar cutter embodying my invention looking 'at the side carrying the rotary blade; Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the device in position after a out has been made; Fig. 3 is a sectional view on line AA of Fig.1; Fig. 4 is an elevation similar to Fig. 1 looking at the device from the opposite direction, and Fig. 5 is a view similar to Fig. 4 showing a modified construction.

In the specific embodiment of the invention illustrated more particularly in Figs. 1 to 4 of said drawings, 1, 2 indicate plates or members slidable with respect to each other. One of these members, as 1, provides at its opposite edges flanges 3, 3 between which the other member 2 may be guided so as to slide in a given direction, which is preferably longitudinally of the device. The outer ends of these plates or members may be suitably formed to be readily operated by the user, and to'this end I have shown finger holes 4, 4 thereat. By this means the user may insert two of his fingers and cause the plates to slide back and forth as desired. On theface of the plate 2 upon the opposite side thereof from the wider plate 1 is a knife or blade 5 here shown to be a disk, although I do not restrict myself to any particular shape. Furthermore this blade is pivotally secured upon the adjacent plate or member 2 so-as to be rotatable about its center. Preferably a rivet 6 is used for this purpose extending through both of said plates and the blade, a slot? being formed longitudinally of the plate farthest from the blade whereby the plates are held together but free to slide longitudinally of each other. farthest from the blade is inserted a screw In the plate 8 projecting through the other plate 2 and the blade 5, with its head overlying the blade at a distance from the center thereof, said screw being held securely upon the plate 1 by a lock-nut 9. The member 2 adjacent the blade is slotted longitudinally where the f screw 8 passes therethrough as at 19, so as to allow the plates to slide longitudinally. Also where the screw passes through the blade, the blade is slotted radially as at 10.

The plate 1 farthest from the blade 5 provides preferably a plurality of holes'll, 12

of different size adapted to receive the end of a cigar or the like which is to be cut, thus giving the user a choice according to the amount which he desires to cut or the size of the cigar or theliketo be cut. The margins of these holes are bent outwardly as at 13 toward the planeof the knife blade, and terminate in said plane so that the passage of the knife across the same will shear anything inserted through the hole. 7

In operation, it will be seen that as the plates are slid back and forth, the rivet 6 upon which the knife blade is pivoted has a relative movement in one direction and the screw 8 near the periphery of the blade has a relative movement in' the other direction, so that the blade is given a partial rotation. At the same time that. the blade is rotated, the plates are slid together as in Fig. 2 so that the blade covers up the holes 11, 12 and at the same time is given a slicing movement by virtue of the rotation thereof. As only a portion of the blade is used to effect this cut I'preferably slot the blade radially at other points as 14,14, similar to the slot 10 so dull the blade may be again changed.

It will be seen that the construction as described provides that the plates be drawn apart in order to allow the end of the cigar to be inserted in one of the holes 11, 12, and,

if desired means may be provided for resiliently maintaining said plates in this drawn-apart position, and with this end in view I have shown in Fig. 5 a leaf spring 15 secured upon the screw 8 and bearing against the rivet 6, although other means may be employed for returning the plates to their outward positions, without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention. Furthermore when such means is used, the finger holes 4, 4 may be omitted since it is not necessary for the user to draw the two plates apart, and the outer ends 16, 16 of the plates may therefore form sufficient finger pieces for the user to press the plates slidably together.

It will be noted that the other member, 2 in the drawings, is cut away as at 17 to expose the apertures 11, 12 to the blade 5, said cutting away being upon any suitable line to effect such purpose and yet not interfere with the sliding of the members in alinement. The inner adjacent ends of the finger apertures 4 are furthermore preferably bent over to form rounded flanges 18, said flanges serving to make it easier for the fingers to press the members .together. Preferably the range of movement of the two members with respect to each other is limited by the slots 7, 19, or either of them, but if desired movement of the members toward each other in closing the cutter could be limited by engagement of the line 17 of cutting away the member 2 with the bosses or outwardly bent margins 14 of the holes 11, 12,0r by engagement of the ends of the two members away from their finger holes with the flanges l8, 18

at the inner edges of said finger holes. Furthermore, instead of the removable screw 8, a rivet similar to the rivet 6 could be employed and the additional slots 14, 14 dispensed with, for cheapness. Any suitable andwell-known equivalents of either rivets or screws could of course be used, and I have employed in the claims the generic term tie means to cover anything of the sort.

Obviously various detail modifications may be made in manufacturing my improved cigar cutter without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention, and I do not wish to be understood as limiting myself except as required by the following claims when construed in the light of the prior art.

Having thus described the invention, what I claim is.
