HAIR CUTTING IMPLEMENT Filed-Apri1 11, 1934 ESheets-Sheet 2 F/ y. 8 A; 5 Inventor W. J. MOZZey B Q m f1 llomey Patented Get. 9, 1934 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFHE.
1 Claim.
This invention relates to an ingenious safety device or implement which may be used by an individual so that with the aid of mirrors properly located he may cut his own hair.
' Briefiy stated, the device is in the nature of this ingenious properly guarded double edged blade device the user can cut his own hair without difiiculty and accomplish the task in a practical and satisfactory manner.
The particular structural details which go to make up the complete assemblage of parts will become more readily apparent from the follow ing description and drawings.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is an elevational View, that is, an outside elevational View illustrating the preferred embodiment of the invention and showing it in its approximate full size form assembled and ready for use.
Figure 2 is a view like Figure 1 with the detachable gauge forming shield removed.
Figure 3 is an elevational view of the handle equipped toothed blade accommodation guard.
Figures 4 and 5 are sections at right angles r to each other taken approximately on the planes of the lines 4-4 and 55 respectively of Figure 1.
Figure 6 is an elevational or plan view, depending upon the manner in which it is served, looking at the opposite side of the assemblage shown in Figure 1.
Figure 7 is a detail edge elevational view of the stabilizing and stud equipped clamping plate for the blade.
45 Considering now the details or parts in their disassembled manner I call attention first to Figure 3 which shows the salient part of the invention, that is, the operating handle 8, of appropriate shape and proportion, provided with a head in the nature of a plate 9 having its longitudinal edges serrated to provide guard teeth 10 similar to the teeth or fingers provided on the guard of a safety razor of a typical or conventional type. At its longitudinal central portion this plate or head is provided with alined holes differentiated by the numerals l1 and 12 respectively, that is, a pair of end holes 11 and a central screw or bolt accommodating hole 12. This head or plate 9 is shaped and proportioned to accommodate the double edged flexible razor or cutting blade 13 50 and this is provided with holes to correspond with the holes 11 and 12. It is of course of appropriate proportions to allow the free ends of the guard fingers or teeth 10 to project beyond the cutting edges thereof as shown, for example in Figure 2.
The next part to which attention is called is the clamping and stabilizing or holder plate 14. This is of rectangular form and of appropriate proportion and provided with a pair of end lugs 11a to fit removably into the holes 11 in the carrier plate or guard 9. At the center is a screw threaded hole 15 to accommodate the threaded end of the fastening or assembling screw 16.
Although these three essential parts may be utilized with a reasonable degree of satisfaction, for hair cutting purposes as is evident from an examination of Figure 2, I have found that more satisfactory results can be attained by the adoption and use of an additional shield or guard which serves as a cutting edge gauge for cooperation with the edges of the blade and the aforementioned teeth lO. This shield 17, sometimes referred to as the cover is really in the nature of a cover plate fashioned to function somewhat as a slip-over sheath. That is, it is properly shaped 85 and proportioned to slip over the assemblage of parts as shown in Figure 2 to provide additional gauging and safety guard means. Through its use this shield 1'? serves to regulate the cutting action of the hair. That is to say it cooperates with the teeth 10 and cutting edges of the blade 13 to restrict the amount of hair cut on of the ends. It will be observed that it embodies a pair of spaced parallel flanges 18 (see Figure 6) and joined to the body portion by way of substantially V-shaped jointing or connective webs 19. Stated otherwise this web connection between the body and the flanges forms an openwork grid or guard construction supplementary to the aforementioned guard teeth 10 so that 100 when the complete or assembled device is used in connection with a comb (not shown) the cutting action can be regulated to sever about oneeighth of an inch or less of the hair-ends being cut at the time.
It is evident that by clamping the blade on the guard 9 by way of the plate 14 and screw 16 as shown in Figure 2 and then slipping the sheathlike shield 17 in place as shown in Figures 1 and 6 the implement is ready for use and when em- 110 sov I ployed in conjunction with suitably arranged mirrors with or without a comb it may be used, somewhat in the nature of a safety razor, for clipping or cutting hair.
Novelty is predicated upon the part shown in Figure 3 comprising the toothed guard plate 9 having the suitably shaped elongated handle 8 arranged in a plane even or flush with respect to said plate, together with a double edged blade 13 and the stud equipped clamping plate 14. (As shown in Figure 2). Additional novelty is predicated upon the arrangement shown in Figure 2 plus the sheath-like detachable shield 1'7 with'its flanges l8 and connecting Webs l9 cooperating with the assembly shown in Figure 2 to render more efficient the cutting action.
It is thought that persons skilled in the art to which the invention relates will be able to obtain a clear understanding of the invention after considering the description in connection with the drawings. Therefore, a more lengthy description is regarded as unnecessary.
Minor changes in shape, size, and rearrangement of details coming within the field of invention claimed may be resorted to in actual practice, if desired.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new is:
A hair cutting device of the class described comprising a substantially flat rectangular gauge plate provided along opposite longitudinal edges withguard teeth and having an integral operating handle disposed in a plane with said plate, a double-edged flexible blade of an area less than said plate, and assembling and retaining means for said blade serving to hold the cutting edges thereof in proper cutting relationship with respect to the guard means for effecting cutting action, and a slip-over sheath-like shield embodying oppositely disposed spaced parallel toothed flanges on the longitudinal sides thereof for operating with the guard teeth and with the cutting edges of the blades.
