Description

Oct. 8, 1935. A. R. FRITZ SAFETY RAZOR BLADE HOLDER Filed Feb. 4, 1935 R. ZVENTOR BY 1% /wumn ATTORN EY WITNESS Patented Oct. 8, 1935 narrsn STATES PATENT OFFICE Application February 1 Claim.

The invention relates to a blade holder and more especially to a safety razor blade holder.

The primary object of the invention is the provision of a holder of this character, wherein a double cutting edge safety ,razor blade can be conveniently held, for the purposes of the honing or stropping of both cutting edges of said blade, the blade being readily placed within and removed from the holder without liability of injury resultant from contact of the fingers of the hand with the cutting edges as opposite ends of the blade will be exposed for the engagement of the fingers therewith free of the holder.

Another object of the invention is the provision of a holder of this character, wherein the hinge for the clamping plates is of a construction to permit the convenient and easy introduction into a handle part which functions to hold the clamping plates in position for the clamping of the safety razor blade which may be properly angled for honing and stropping purposes.

A further object of the invention is the provision of a holder of this character, wherein the safety razor blade will be firmly and securely held so that both cutting edges thereof may be singly exposed for the honing and stropping of the same without liability of the slipping of the blade during this operation, the cutting edge being cleared of the clamping plates to avoid damage to such edge when honing or stropping the same.

A still further object of the invention is the provision of a holder of this character, wherein a safety razor blade of the double cutting edge type when held within the clamping plates will be firmly gripped between such cutting edges so that these edges will not be damaged from contact with the clamping plates and especially during honing or stropping.

A still further object of the invention is the provision of a holder of this character, which is simple in construction, thoroughly reliable and efiicient in its purpose, conveniently handled, enabling a safety razor blade to be readily mounted within and removed from the said holder, strong, durable, and inexpensive to manufacture.

With these and other objects in view the invention consists in the features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described in detail, illustrated in the accompanying drawing disclosing the preferred embodiment of the invention and pointed out in the claim hereunto appended.

In the accompanying drawing:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of a handle con- 4, 1935, Serial No. 4,929

structed in accordance with the invention showing a safety razor blade held thereby.

Figure 2 is an enlarged sectional view on the line 2--2 of Figure 1 looking in the direction of the arrows.

Figure 3 is an enlarged perspective view of the clamping plates of the holder.

Figure 4 is a vertical transverse sectional view through the plates showing the same in open position.

Figure 5 is a plan view of one of the plates.

Figure 6 is a plan view of the other plate.

Similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views in the drawing.

Referring to the drawing in detail, the holder comprises a pair of clamping plates l0 and II, respectively, these being flat and of substantially rectangular shape, the plate I I being of a greater length than the plate It). The plate I0 is pro- 20 vided with a pair of spaced holes l2 while the plate I l is provided with a companion pair of spaced embossed studs or lugs 13, these being of less size than the holes l2 but are adapted to be received within the latter. The lugs serve to 25 engage matched holes within a safety razor blade I4 of the double cutting edge type, it being understood, of course, that the plate H is of a length less than the length of the blade l4 so that the ends of the latter will be exposed for gripping engagement by the hand when the blade is clamped between the plates.

The plate It) at its rearmost edge is formed with a substantially U-shaped outwardly angled web portion l5 having the outwardly arched bridge l6 bent at an angle thereto and terminating in pivot ears ll, these being received in pivot eyes I8 cut and formed from the offset web portion IQ of the plate II and in this manner'these plates l0 and II are hinged together for the clamping of the razor blade I 4 therebetween. The web portion IQ of the plate l l is formed with a stop tongue 20 for engaging the bridge I6 to limit the swinging of the plates Ill and II when moved to open relation'with respectv to each other and in this position the blade I4 is readily removable from between the said plates. The pivot eyes l8 are tubular in shape andpermit easy introduction into a tubular head 2| of a handle 22, the head 2| being longitudinally slotted and formed with opposed resilient gripping cheeks 23, these being spaced to accommodate therebetween the webs l5 and IQ of the plates Ill and l I when brought together in clamping relation to each other and in this manner the head when embracing the 55 eyes I8 and the web portions I5 and I9 of the plates I and II will hold the same in position for clamping the blade I4 as is clearly shown in Figure 1 of the drawing.

The cheeks 23 of the head 2I are of a width to overlie the web portions I5 and I9 of the plates 7 I0 and II, with the latter protruded therefrom.

The plates I0 and II at their outer longer edges are beveled at 24 to permit of the proper angular lay of the blade I4 when clamped by the cheeks and held within the head 2| of the handle 22 when positioned for honing or stropping.

It will be obvious from Figures 1, 2 and 4 of the drawing that when the blade I4 is clamped between the plates IO and II the double cutting edges thereof will be clear of contact with metal or the plates I0 and and the webs I5 and I9 of the same so that no damage can result to the said cutting edges of the blade when clamped by the plates I3 and II and during the stropping or honing period.

The handle 22 is of considerable length for convenience in the manipulation of the holder during stropping or honing of the blade I4, it being obvious from Figures 3 and 4 of the drawing that when the hinge plates are released from the head 2!, these plates can be swung to open position and the blade I 8 freely removed by gripping the exposed ends of the plates by the fingers of a hand of the user of the holder without injury from cuts by the cutting edges of said blade.

The web portion I5 has the relatively large slot or opening 25 as formed thereby so that when the blade I4 becomes arched by pressure from the thumb and index finger against opposite ends thereof on removing such blade the innermost 5 cutting edge of the blade will not come in contact with the plate II] when the blade is held between the plates I0 and II.

The outward angle of the portions I5 and I9 which is also present with the plates I0 and II 10 enables the gripping of the blade at the outer portion thereof and next to the lugs I3, this being apparent from Figure 2 of the drawing.

What is claimed is:

A holder of the character described comprising a pair of plates forming clamping cheeks, pivot eyes formed on one of said plates, a web portion on the other plate and angled outwardly therefrom, an outwardly arched bridge bent at an angle from said web portion and having terminal pivot-ears engaged in said eyes for swingingly connecting the plates with each other, a leaf spring extension formed on the plate having the eyes and engageable with the arched bridge for sustaining the plates together or separated from each other, studs struck from one of said plates and seated in the other plate when both plates are together for the holdingof a safety razor blade between the latter and means for fitting with the eyes and constituting a handle.
