RAZOR;-

Applieation mea october 1o, 192'4. ser1a1 No. 742,759.

This invention relates to en impro-ved razor of the safety type Whlch 1s compact and Well balanced' and which is' so con-1 s tructed as to'permit the ejection of a blade and the insertion of another by means of a 1 manually operated device sothat the blades can be inserted without their being handled separately, as they are fed in succession from a stack. Y

The invention comprises a razor that 1s constructed so that the blades are fed end- Wise from the stack into the guard and the blade that is being inserted expels the blade sively feeding the blades ceive and retain a in the guard.

' The invention also relates to a razor of'` the safety type which has a handle and a r guard connected together so that when the guard is swung to extend longitudinally from the handle it is in position to receive a blade from the stack; the handle actin when desired, as a receptacle or holder or the stack, and the guard when supplied with a blade being swungto shaving position on the handle. l

The invention is 'also designed to provide a .compact razor in which the handle as a. reservoir for the blades, the guard, and the means for feeding the blades from the stack to the guard are placed Within a structure the size ouf the usual safety razor and in which the blade may be held when in use at an angle relative tothe handle.

The invention also relates to a holder for a stack of blades which is detachable from the handle .for reloading and`which co-operates with a slide on the handle for succes- A from the stack. Another object of the invention resides in providing a blade supporting head comprislng a solid block provided with a slit of approximately the dimensions necessary to reblade; the block on one side of the slit being formedor provided with a curved' safety guard and the entire block being designed to bring the slit into registry with the feeding opening from the handle or ma azine for reserve blades.

Another ob]ect,`of the invention is to provide a clampfol" locking the blade 'in the guard which clamp is operated when the guard is swung to shaving position but which is eased oi enough to allow smooth passage of the blade when the guard 1s moved to the position in which it receives a blade. The of the guard is about the individual a cam projection on a supporting post which, in addition to serving the purpose of clamping the blade in the guard when thel guard is swung to a `shaving position also has the purpose of coacting with the clamp `or spring to hold the head of the razor at any desired angle with the handle to suit` user.

The adjustment isdesigned to permit a. firm positioning of the shaving edge at a. variety of angles in relation to the longitudinal axis of the handle without independ-v entmanipulation of any clamping means.

1e invention also providesva struct-ure which prevents the entrance of water to the stack vof blades or other elements within the handle.

AThe invention further embodies'a clip in which the stack of blades is held and which clip carries the stack bodily into the handle and is installed so as to permit the feeding means to move the blades successively from the stack and which is also expendable in that it can be thrown away, it being the intention to sell blades in the c lip ready for insertion in the razor.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which Figure 1 isa side view of a razor as it appears when closed and assumes the compactform in which it is made. V Figure 2 is a section of therazor with theguard and the post shown in elevat1on. Figure 3 `is a fragmentary sectional view of the upper right hand part of Figure 2 but with a blade fed into the guard. Figure 4 is a side view of the construction shown in Figure handle shown in section. Figure 5Vis a top View of the construction shown V in Figure 1 with the cover removed. Figure 6 is a section on line 6-6 in Figure-2. Figure -7 is a perspective view of the trigger for feeding the blade forward and Figure 8 is a perspective view of a' form of clip for holding a stack of blades showing one blade ready for insertion in the clip. Figure 9 is 'a detail section showing how in the guardwhen the guard is in shaving positie J. The handle 10`is provided with the guard 11, these being secured together so that the swung to' `shaving position or extended longitudinally relative to the handle. The constructiel Alimrn embodies a post 12 on the end of the handle which reguard can 1 be 2 with the sleeve on the a blade-is 'locked angle and receives and holds a blade 18 which'fits snugly in the slit 17. The blade 18 s inserted endwise into the slit and I provide means for receiving and holding the blade with an easyfriction bymeans of a spring 19 which projects up through an opening in the bottom of the slot 13 and bears on the blade.

When the guard i's'swung away from its longitudinal position or to horizontal position, which is the shaving position (illusrated in dotted outline in Figure 2) the blade is tightly clamped as the spring is pressed upward by the end 20 of the post 12, which end is raised or made eccentric to the pivot 14` and acts as a cam to bind the blade in place.l Of course, the spring 19 can be dispensed with but I prefer to use it to prevent the blade sliding in the slit when the guard is folded or swung against the post. This'clamping, of course, also holds the guard in its adjusted positions for shaving as most convenient for the user. y The blades arepreferably carried in the handle, and for this purpose I provide the handle with a recess which receives the stack of blades and also parts associated with the handle to insure the blades being in position-to be fed into the guard. In the form shown the holder 22 is an open-sided frame having a spring 23 secured thereto so as to bear on the underside of the stack. The holder 22 is on a stem 24 which is rectangular s o that it fits in the-'recess 21 and cannot turn and the head 25 which screws on the end of the handle is swivelled on the stem 24. In thdrawing this is shown as a disc 26 fitting in a recess 27 in the head 25. This swivellin is also desirable as the stem 24 and the older are eccentrically placed in the handle as will be seen from Figures 2, 4

and 6 andV for reasons to be stated hereinafter. l

To feed a blade from the stackV to the guard I provide a slide which in the form shown. comprises a sleeve 28 with -a 'rm sliding t onthe handle and which carries a triggeror lfinger 29 which has a rounded outer face 30 bearing' against the inside ofV the sleeve to which it 1s secured, as by a screw 31. The finger or trig 'r 29 is set'in on theouter face of the hand e, the faces 32 sliding on the faces 33. of the flattened partof the handle flanking 'the slot 34 through recessie?l is just inside the slot and is so proportioned that vwhen the slide is pulled back it catches just under the outermost or what might be termed the-topmost blade of the stack as in Figure 2.

The projection 35 is of slightly less thickness than a blade so that it only picks one up and slides it forward when the sleeve 28 is pushed forward. The blade passes through'the slit 36 and into the slit 17 of the guard, the sleeve being halted when the blade is positioned, as the trigger 29 engages the end 37 of the slot 34 and the projection 35 is long enough to reach the end of the slit 36 which is also the edge of the guard as the parts are soproportioned that the guard rests against the top face of the handle when the guard is in extension or arslit 36.

While'the'blades can be directly stacked in the holder, I intend to supply them al- `4ready stacked in a clip 41 which has a side wall 42'and end' walls 43 and an open bottom 44 through which the spring 23 can project. The a'nges 44 hold the blades rom dropping through the bottom and the very short flanges 45 just engage the very corners of the sharpened edges of the blades so that the blade is fed through without any injury to the cutting edge except possibly at the tip on each end. vThe clips 41 are wrapped and form the package of blades as sold to the user and when the wrapper is removed the clip can be inserted between the ends 46 and 47 of the holder 22 into which space .it ts. The holder with the clip isthen slid into the handle and the cap 25 screwed on. r The clip cannot project to interfere with the feeding of the top blade as it is held slightly retreated by the shoulder 48 (see. Figure 6.)

The major portion of the guard is rounded to coincide with. the c ur of the handle, and the handle 10 projects abovethe s1eeve'28 enou h to provide anvedge 49 to frictionally ho d acap 5 0- which is placed over the guard and forms a symmetrical and .which lthe finger slides. The projection 35 i' lll well balanced razor as will be seen from Figlre 1.'

stated before, therecess for-the stack of blades lis not centrally located in the handle. It is placed to one side Vof the centre so that it can be fed into the'forward guard is thus heldA with its slit 17 justabove and in line with end of the guard. .The

*l of the blade i 25 the scope of "vice asy will be seen from Figure 5. To brin the guard to horizontal position with lits lade inclined to the proper shaving angle, I incline the post 12 relative to the centre of the handle and to the ing slits, the result being that, the guard swings in a plane at anangle to the path when it is fed into the guard. This 'disposition of the parts causes the guard whenin shaving position to be so placed that the blade is inclined to the proper shaving angle as in Figure 4 instead l5- of horizontal' which would be the cas'e if the guard 'was to swing in a plane parallel to the feeding movement of the blade.

The amount of cant of Vtheb'lade is revulated by the inclination of the post or rather the pivot ofthe guard relative to the feeding plane of vthe blade. It will v and changes can .be made in the form and sizes of the parts Without departing from -the invention. I claim:
