www y@ Patented Dec. 29, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE COMBINATION RAZOR BLADE CONTAINER AND DESPENSER Application October 23, 1935, Serial No. 46,260

8 Claims.

The present invention relates to a combination razor blade holder and dispenser and has particular reference to an original package for new razor blades that may be sold to the public and be utilized as a receptacle for old' blades and thrown away when the new blades are all used.

Razor blades today are normally sold in small packages of iive or ten blades each with every blade contained in a separate sheath or envelope. After a blade has been used a few times it becomes dulled for shaving purposes and is ready for disposal. Care must be taken in the disposal of these blades since severe injuries can be suffered from these used blades. Heretofore containers have been provided for this purpose made from earthenware or metal and sold separately to the purchaser for receiving the old blades. When the container is iilled it is thrown away and danger of injury to persons from these blades is greatly lessened.

While these separate containers are helpful, they are expensive, and, as they are bought only when needed, the user of the blades often finds himself without a receptacle and must use utmost care in disposing of the used blade or store them some place until another receptacle can be purchased.

A principal object of this invention is to pro- Vide a razor blade dispenser that is easy to operate, and inexpensive and simple to manufacture.

Another object of this invention is to provide an original package for dispensing new blades and receiving old blades.

A further object of this invention is to provide with every package of blades sold an easy and safe means for the disposal of said blades when used.

Still other and further objects of my invention will be pointed out or indicated hereinafter or will be apparent to one skilled in the art upon an understanding of the invention orl its employment in practice.

One embodiment of my invention is set forth in the drawing for the purpose of exemplication. It is to be understood that the invention is not limited to the exact form shown but may be embodied in other and similar structural forms coming equally within the scope of the appended claims.

In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a view of the combination dispenser and receptacle in elevation.

Fig. 2 is a View in elevation of the inner container member of said dispenser and receptacle.

(Cl. 20G-16) Fig. 3 is a sectional view through the same taken on line 3 3 of Fig. 4 showing the inner member telescopically or slidably received within the outer cover.

Fig. 4 is a front View of said receptacle. 5

In a preferred embodiment of my invention, such as shown in the drawing, is shown an outer substantially cubical box member open at one end. Into this open-ended box member is slid a second substantially cubical member having an 10 inclined new razor blade holder and guideway sloping downwardly towards one face of said box member. A slot and thumb groove in the outer box member corresponding to the lower end of the guideway of the inner member permits the 15 manual withdrawal of a single blade at a time from said dispenser.

rIhe inclined guideway terminates short of the rear end of the inner member leaving a passageway for the reception of used blades and both 20 the inner and outer box members are slotted at the upper end of this passageway so that used blades may be dropped therein. The whole space lying below the guideway is thus given over to the used blades. used and dropped into the used blade compartment, the entire box may be safely disposed of as easily as waste products about the house.

With reference to the drawing, the invention may be embodied in an inner box-like member l0 30 having a body member formed substantially in the shape of a hollow cube. A razor blade guideof the inner box member and the blades are preferably positioned vertically to the base of said member or stacked parallel to the front face of 35 the same. way or article holder I2 is disposed within this inner box-like member and arranged diagonally there-across to form a downwardly slanting holder for new blades. This guideway or chute 40 is of sufficient height to permit a plurality of blades inserted or stacked therein to move forwardly and downwardly along the guideway by the force of gravity toward the ejector end i4. To accomplish this end the iioor and the ceiling of the chute should preferably be parallel. The` height of the chute may be less than the maximum width of the blades since the chute is slanted downwardly at an angle to the base l5 The chute I2 does not extend to the rear side 50 of the inner box-likemember Ill but is enclosed by a backing member or blade supporting piece i6 which is attached to the upper face of the inner member. The chute I2 is supported from the upper face of the inner member at the junc- When the new blades have been 25 tion of the backing piece I6 with the ceiling of the chute leaving, between the backing piece I6 and the rear face of the inner member a passageway I8 leading to a disposal chamber 20' below the chute I2. The upper face of the inner member IIJ is slotted as at 2| to form an entrance to said passageway.

At one side of the forward end I4 of the chute I2 is mounted a guide member or deflector strip 22 causing the downwardly moving series of blades to be deflected toward the opposite side of the chute as they near the forward end. thereof. The side of the chute opposite the guide mem- 'ber is left open so the blades are free to pass therefrom.

An outerv box-like member 24 similar to the inner member I0 in shape and open on its rearward face is provided to slidably receive the inner member therewithin. The lower forward face 25 of the outer member 24, corresponding to the open side of the forward end of the chute I2, is cut away to form a thumb grip opening 26 and the side face 21 of the outer member is slotted to form an ejector slot 23. A blade II may be pressed sideways from the lower end or the chute I2 in the inner member I0 through the slot 28 when needed lby the thumb.

The inner member I0 is telescoped within. the outer member 24 with thelower end of the chute I2 forward. The open end of the chute I2 corresponds with the thumb grip opening 25 which is not large enough to permit blades within the chute to fall therethrough but only of such size as to admit the pad of the thumb or finger for f applying a sideways sliding pressure on the blade to press it through the slot 28.

The upper face 29 of the outer member 24 is slotted as at 30. to correspond to the slot 2I in the upper face of the inner member I0 forming a continuous slot through both the Vinner and outer members to the passageway I8 and the disposal cham-ber 20.

The inner package may be made from a continuous piece of metal or cardboard which is stamped or scored and folded to make the top and face walls, the chute member I 2 and the base and back of the inner member I0 in an inexpensive and simple manner.

In-assembling this device, the inner member is laid upon its rear face and the chute I2 is loaded with the desired number of blades II. The open end of. the outer member 24 is then slid over the inner container so that the slot 30 therein corresponds to the slot 28 in the inner member and the package is completed and ready for sale. A years supply of blades may be sold in this way and disposed of one after another in a simple, safe and inexpensive manner.
