CUT ICLE TRIMMER Filed Oct. 21, 1939 FIG] ' INVENTORS ANDRE TELLI ER ELIE PAUL MAR UIE @ZQA'TQRNE Patented Jan. 21, 1941 PATENT OFFICE CUTICLE. TRIMMER Andre Tellier and Elie Paul Marqui, New York, N. Y.
Application October 21, 1939, Serial No. 300,518
2 Claims.
This invention relates to manicuring devices and more particularly to devices for manicuring or trimming the cuticles of the finger nails.
An object of the invention is to provide a de vice that will trim the cuticle of the nail quickly and shapely,
Another object is to provide such a device that is easily slipped over the finger nail.
A further object is to provide a device of this kind that is easily manipulated and needs no skill to use.
A still further object is to provide a device of this kind that is attractive in appearance.
Yet another object is to provide a device of this kind that is simple in construction and economical to manufacture.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the description to follow taken in connection with the accompanying drawing in which- Fig. 1 is a top plan of a finger with the improved cuticle trimmer in position on the finger nail.
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the improved cuticle trimmer.
Fig. 3 is an enlarged front view of the device.
Fig. 4 is an enlarged top plan view of the device.
Fig. 5 is an enlarged sectional view through the top central portion of the device.
The improved cuticle trimmer is in the form of a split ring I0 formed of metal or other suitable material. The ring is split to make the device more flexible and resilient so that it can more readily be slipped over the finger nail II when placing it on or taking it oif the nail..
The upper central portion of the ring is formed with an arcuate shaped flange portion I 2, the radius of the are being substantially the same as the radius of the arc of the cuticle of the nail II. This flange portion l2 bulges outwardly or laterally of the plane of the ring body. The
flange portion I2 is also slightly curved or tapered downwardly as indicated at l3. The tapered portion I3 terminates at its outermost end in a reduced portion l4 forming a shoulder I5. The extreme outer edge of the reduced portion l4 terminates in a knife edge [6.
In using the improved cuticle trimmer, it is slipped over the finger nail with the bulged out portion l2 positioned forward as it is slipped on the nail. The ring is then pushed toward the cuticle l6 of the finger nail until the shoulder portion l5 engages the cuticle. Because of the downward curved portion I3, the ring will slide over the nail and the knife edge I6 will scrape or cut away any flesh adhering to the finger nail, and may be used to remove any excrescences and ragged edges. The shoulder l5 following this trimming action of the knife edge l6 presses the cut flesh or skin and the cuticle into a shapely curve of natural curvature and if left on the finger nail the device will keep it in shaped condition.
We claim:
1. A cuticle trimmer comprising a split ring member having an arcuate shaped flange portion disposed in a plane laterally of the plane of the body of the ring, integral means for cutting the skin off the finger nail and a shoulder portion on said flange portion shaped to conform to the shapev of the cuticle of the nail of a finger for shaping said cuticle.
2. A cuticle trimmer comprising a split ring member having an arcuate shaped flange portion disposed in a plane laterally of the plane of the ring body and being curved downwardly, the outermost end of said flange portion being formed with a knife edge and a shoulder formed on said flange portion rearwardly of the knife edge and shaped to conform to the shape of the curvature of the cuticle of the finger nail.
