' and held in a desired position and of means I whereby the device may be engaged and the blade controlled by a inger of the user, when in use. Y i

Considerable danger as well as difficulty is encountered in shaving with the old style razor on account of the. tendency of the blade to continually :move with reference to its angle to the handle and with reference to its angle to the face, while being used.

l am aware that it is old in the zart to f provide securing means for;- holding the blade at a certain angle to the handle during the operation or" shaving, and I do not *Claim* this broadly, but only the specific auxiliary' means in combination therewith for guiding and controlling the blade as hereinafter set forth, and more particularly with reference to the angle of the blade to the faces: In my improved combination means are provided whereby thc razor may be held by the hand ina natural Yposition and' the blade secured or locked at the desired angle with reference to the handle and whereby the finger of the user utilized (through members of the combination provided) in facilitating the control of the blade with reference to Iits angle to the Jface during the operation of shaving, in such a VYmanner that any part of the tace may be shaved easily and safely.

These objectsI accomplish byV means of such structure and relative arrangement of parts as will appear by a perusal ofthe specification and claims, and by reference to theY accompanying drawings, which ilustrate one adaptation or embodiment of my invention, iii-which:

Application led March 30, 1917. Serial No. 158,507.

memlberrS pivot-ally secured thereto by the rivet or 'bearing 7. The arm f8 is provided with a. gripping jaw 1Q and an extension 13 with its inward projection 9, which projection 9 is adapted to register with and engage the slots L and 6 of the plate'. 11 designates theend ofathe tang of the blade, it being engaged by the gripping jaw 10, as more particularly shown in Fig. 1.

-, The extension 13 of the arm 8 isslightly raised or convex, thereby forming a resilient bearing having a spring eit'ect with reterence to its inward projection 9, so that the projection 9 is pushed inwardly onto the plate 3 over which it travels. It will thus be seenrthat when the inward projection 9 is directly opposite either of the slots 4 or (S it will register with or engage the slot. The

` gripping jaw 10 at the opposite end of the arm 8 is thereby held in engagement with the tang end 11, in a fixed and controlied manner, when the projection 9 registers with the slot 6,7as shown in Fig. 1. Similarly, when the projection 9 registers with and engages the Vcorresponding slot i thc arn 8 with its gripping jaw lQris heldin a disengaged andY contrqlled position, as when not inuse, as'shown in Fig. Q. Y.

It is obvious that the resiliency ot' the extension 13 provides sutficient spring to lock or hold the arnri'S in position, yet the member 13 is: sufficiently resilient to permit the projection 9 to be moved out of slot engagement when pressure isapplied'to the opposite end of the arm. 8f, as simply pushing :sharplywith the finger. 1t will be seen that the end of the tang 11 is engaged by the gripping jaw 10 when the extension 13 with its 4projection 9 has traveled over the surface ofthe plate 3 until the projection 9 regis-ters with orrengages the slot 6, whereby said' traveling of the projection 9 over the plate 3 being easily efl'ected by pulling on the arm 8 or gripping jaw l() with the tlnnnb and linger.

The approximately triangular space 14: now formed provides a space for a finger, as the third finger of the hand, which finger engaging the boundaries of the approximately trangular space 14, viz: the handle of the razor, 4the tang of the blade, and the arm of the device, assists very materially in holding, controlling and operating the razor, especially at the desired angle with reference to the face, making the operation of shaving easier and of practically no danger, as it has been found with the linger in this engagement the user easily prevents the blade cut-ting the face, and has a verjv much finer control of the cutting edge. j

When it is desired to disengage the jaw 10 from the end of the tang 11, all that is necessary is to pull outwardly on the arm 8 or the jaw 10. Simultaneously, the projection 9 of the extension 13 is forced out of its slot 6, the tang1 is released from its engagement with the aw 10, and the blade may be closed. By now pushing the arm S the opposite way,

21.6., inwardly, the projection 9 is caused to again drop into and out of its slot 6 and follow its path across the plate 3 until it registers with and engages the slot. i, where by the device is held in a normal disengaged and closed or folded position, as shown in Fig. 2. v

The plate 2 may be constructed slightly convex. to augment the engaging of its slots 4 and (i with the projection 9; and the actuating, controlling and securing device for the blade in combination with its handle may be attachable and detachable to and from its operative co-action in each case so that it nia v be combined and removed in its employment with an)7 razor of ordinarytype in an attac-hable and detachable manner.

The engaging jaw may be located at any suitable point or points, and may comprise a single or plurality of engagement means, so thatl the angle of the shaving blade member may be adjusted and controlled at various suitable angles, the illustration showing only one gripping jaw for simplicity and to avoid confusion in the conception of the invention.

The device may be constructed of any snitable kind of material and may be made in any size or shape Ydesired to suit different sizes and styles of razors, so long as the various members of the combination co-act and coperate to perform the functions and produce the results desired, without departing from the spirit of the invention.

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

l. In a device of the class described, the combination With a razor, of an arm pivoted to the handle of said razor, and a gripping jaw formed at the free end of said arm adapted to engage with the tang of the blade of said razor when extended, said arm, tang and handle forming a triangle adapted to receive one of the fingers of an operator.

2. In a device of the class described, the combination with a razor, of a spring arm pivoted to the handle thereof, said arm being adapted to fold closely against said handle or be extended at an angle thereto at the front, ay gripping means formed at the free end of said arm adapted to engage the tang of the razor-blade, and means for securing said arm in either of its adjusted positions.

3. In a device of the class described, the

combination with a razor, of an arm pivoted to the. handle of' said razor, said arm being bent so that its free end is normally in register with the center of said razor, a gripping jaw formed with the free end of said arm adapted to engage with the end of the tang of the blade of said azor when in an extended position, said arm, tang and handle forming the sides of a hollow triangle disposed on the front side of said razor, and means for securing said arm in either an operative or inoperative position.

' L In. a device of the class described, the combination with a. razor comprised of a handle, a blade pivoted therebetween and a tang extending opposite to said blade, of a: plate secured on the exterior of said handle, an arm pivoted in said plate, an extension formed with said arm adapted to engage in either of two openings in said plate, and an offset gripping jaw formed at the opposite, free end of said arm engageable with the end of said talig, said arm when extended forming in combination with said handlel and tang, a hollow triangle, and being foldable closely adjacent to said handle when said razor blade is folded.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto subscribed my name in the presence of two witnesses, this 20th day of March, 1917.
