COMB George Harold Kemmcr, Arlington, Va. Application January 31, 1945, Serial No. 575,382

6 Claims.

The invention illustrated and hereinafter described has reference to an improvement in combs and its purpose is to provide a comb through use of which straight hair may be curled or waved and curled or kinky hair straightened.

Another object of the invention is to provide a comb so constructed that in its use the hair strands will be drawn angularly against substantially knife edges of the teeth of the comb whereby, if straight the hair will be curled or waved depending upon the speed or angular manner in which it is drawn through the hair, or if the ,hair is curled the action of the teeth upon the hair will be to straighten the curly strands.

A further object of this invention is to provide a comb in which the teeth are angularly dis-' posed relative to the back of the comb and twisted in such a manner as to draw the hair strands tightly against knife edges provided on the outer sides of the teeth.

Other features and advantages will become more readily apparent from th following deout its body portion [8, except adjacent to their free ends 19, and except the parting tooth IT. The opposing vertical edges 20 and 2|, of all of the teeth are beveled to form knife edges 22 and 23, against which strands of hair 25, will be forced through the action of the curvatures of said body portions ofadjoining teeth.

In Figures 6 to 11 a variation of the invention is illustrated in which the comb 26, has its teeth 21, inclined relative to the back 28, whereby the body portion of the teeth overlie one another in spaced relation except at their lower ends 30,

I where they are in straight spaced alignment, as

scription and the accompanying illustrative drawings in which:

Figure 1 is an elevational view of a comb formed in accordance with my invention,

Figure 2 is a sectional view taken on line 22 of Figure 1,

Figure 3 is a sectional view taken on line 3-4 v of Figure 1,

Figure 4 is a broken away portion of the comb illustrating the curvature of the teeth,

Figure 5 is a view similar to Figure 2, indicating the course of strands of hair passing between the teeth of the comb,

Figure 6 is a view similar to Figure 1, showing a modification of the comb,

Figur '7 is a, section on line 1-1 thereof,

Figure 8 is a section on line 88 of Figure 6,

Figurefi is a broken off perspective view of a single tooth of Figure 6,

Figure 10 is a similar view of a pair of adjoining teeth showing the course of hair strands passing there-between,

' Figure 11 is a view similar to Figure 8, illustrating a modification, and

Figure 12 is a sectional view of the lower end of a tooth, showing another modification.

In the accompanying drawings as above enumerated and in the following specification, like characters of reference indicate like parts throughout and in which I-5, indicates a comb formed in accordance with my invention. Projecting from the back 15, of the comb are a series of teeth 11, each of which is twisted throughclearly illustrated in Figure 8 of the drawings.

The modification of Figure 11, is to illustrate a curved comb, of the ornamental type, the figure being a view similar to Figure 8, that is a section along the lower edge of the comb, The curving of the teeth in a comb of this character is of especial value in that such an arrangement locks the comb to the hair, especially in that one half of the teeth are curved in one direction and the other, half in an opposite direction.

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 isregarded as unnecessary.

Minor changes in shape, size and rearrangement of details and parts such as come within the purview of the invention claimed may be resorted to, in actual practice, if desired.

Having now described my invention that which I claim as new and desire to procure by Letters Patent is:

1. A comb comprising a series of teeth joined to aback, said teeth being twisted transversely. throughout the greater part of their body, and terminating straight across at their lower ends, the edges of said body portions being beveled, a parting tooth centrally separating certain groups of said teeth, said tooth being rectangular throughout itslength, and said groups being inclined in opposing directions.

2. A comb comprising a series of teeth joined to a back, said teeth being twisted transversely, throughout the greater part of their body, and terminating straight across at their lower ends, the edges of said body portions being beveled, a parting tooth centrally separating certain groups of said teeth, and said tooth being rectangular throughout its length.

3. A comb comprising a series of teeth joined to a back, said teeth being twisted transversely, throughout the greater part of theirbody, and terminating straight across at their lower ends, the edges of said body portions being beveled, and a parting tooth centrally separating certain groups of said teeth.

4. A comb comprising a series of teeth joined to a back, said teeth being twisted transversely, throughout the greater part of their body, and

terminating straight-across attheir lower ends, 10

and the edges of said body portions being beveled.
