FOLDABLE SAFETY RAZOR WITH NONREPLACEABLE BLADE Original Filed June 25, 1938 ATTORNEY rlhis invention relates to Asafety razors. v f'f The main object of the invention resides in an 'f inexpensive safety razor having a non-remova- Ible razor blade whereby the entire razor must Abe disposed of after the blade becomes too dull for "shaving purposes.
Patented Dec. 19, 1950 FOLDABLE SAFETY RAZOR WITH NONREFLACEABLE BLADEv Anestis Foltis, .l'ackson Heights, N. Y., assignor of one-fourth to Allan Panzer, New York, N. Y.
substituted for abandoned application Serial No. 215355, June 25, 1938. This application May 21, 1946, Serial No. @1,281
3 Claims.
'i This application is a substitute application for my application, Serial No. 215,755, filed June 25, 1938 now abandoned. v
improvements in Another feature of the invention is to provide "asafety razor wherein the blade and its holder constitute a single unit which is simple land inexpensive of construction to enable its user to economically dispose ofl the entire unit after a 'limited number of shaves, thus eliminating the usual practice and annoyance of removing a usedblade from its holder and replacing the same with a new one.
Si? -AY further object oi the invention is the pro- '.vision of a safety razor unit in which the razor .Wardly and brought intoconfronting relation to handle forming position when the razor is to be used for shaving.
Other novel features of construction will be apparent as the following specieation is read in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, in which:
Figure l is a perspective View of my invention.
Figure 2 is an end elevational view.
Figure 3 is a side elevational view.
Figure 4 is a top plan view.
Figure 5 is a bottom plan View.
Figure 6 is an enlarged vertical transverse sectional view on the line E- of Figure 3.
Figure 7 is an enlarged vertical longitudinal sectional view on the line l-l of Figure 2.
Figure 8 is a transverse sectional View on the line 8 8 of Figure '7.
Figure 9 is a plan View of the blank from which the holder is constructed.
Figure 9a is a plan view of a modied form of blade.
Referring to the drawings by reference characters, the numeral I designates my safety razor unit in its entirety, the blade holder being constructed from a single blank of thin metal A shown in Figure 9 and the material from which the blank is formed being preferably of thin sheet steel or aluminum. The blank A is elongated in plan and is cut to provide a central rectangular shaped clamping plate I l having spaced vslots I2 arranged in longitudinal alinernent. Co-
extensive with the ends of the clamping plate lI are guard plate sections I3-I3, the same being foldable against the underside of the clamping plate il on the transverse fold lines Ill-I4. Slots i5 are provided along the fold lines lll-,44, the slots extending further into the guard plate sections I3 than they do into the clamping plate il. The guard plate sections I3 are wider than the clamping plate I l and arranged adjacent and parallel to the longitudinal sides of the guard plate sections I3, are rows of equidistantly spaced slots It and extending longitudinally through the slots are dot and dash lines Il indicating lines of fold on which the side edges of thev guard plate sections are folded. Struck out from the guard plate sections I3 and arranged in longitudinal alinment with the slots I2 are tongues or prongs I8. Coextensive with the guard plate sections I3 are Wing like finger grip elements l-I9, the same being bendable on the perforated lines 2li-2li.
Having described the blank A, I shall now describe the manner in which a double edge cutting blade 2| of the Gillette type iis-associated with the holder formed from the blank. The razor blade 2 I is placed flat against the clamping plate I I with the longitudinal slot 22 of the blade in registration with the slots I2 of the clamping plate, while the reduced ends 23 of the blade projects over the slots l5-I5. The longitudinal side edges of the guard plate sections I3-I3 are folded under on the lines I'I which form spaced guard lingers 24 along the longitudinal sides of the guard plate sections. The guard plate sections I3 are next folded inwardly over the blade on the clamping plate II on the fold lines Ill-I4 which causes the reduced ends 23 of the blade to project through the slots I 5. The prongs I8 are bent outwardly and inserted through the slots 22 in the blade and through the respective slots l2-I2 in the clamping plate I I, after which the prongs are bent over the outer side of the clamping plate as clearly illustrated in Figure 'I which elfects a tight clamping of the blade 2l between the clamping plate il and the guard plate sections l3-I 3. By reason of the prongs passing through the slot 22 of the blade and the extension of the reduced ends 23 of the blade passing through the slots Iii-I5, the blade is properly positioned with respect to the guard edges of the guard plate formed by the sections I3-I3. When the sections i3-l3 are folded inwardly, they meet to provide a continuous row of guard fingers 24 along the longitudinal sides of the razor head. The linger elements lil-I9 are bent into shelllike shape in cross section as best seen in Figure 7, and each is formed with a concavity 25 to accommodate the index finger and thumb to effeet gripping of the razor for use. For packing purposes, the finger elements i9 are folded flat against the under side of the razor head on the weakencd fold lines 2;'3-29 as illustrated in dotted lines in Figure of the drawings.
From the foregoing description, it 'will beseen that I have provided a safety razor unit which is inexpensive of construction and relatively light in weight, and which may be used in the manner of an ordinary safety razor with the exception that the handle formed by the nger elements I B-l 9 is relatively short but is sufficient to enable the thumb and index nger of the hand to firmly grip and hold the razor when in use. Due to the inexpensive construction, the entire razor may be disposed 0f after the edges of the blade 2| become dull, thus eliminating the annoyance and loss of time in changing blades.
In Figure 9a I have illustrated a modied form of double edge blade 2|' which may be used instead of the Gillette type blade 2| hereinbefore referred to. The blade 2l is provided with a relatively large slot 22', the end walls of which are centrally notched as at 23 to receive prongs similar to those designated I\8-I8. With this type of blade, the slots |5-I5 may be dispensed with for the ends of the blade 2| t within the confines of the ends of the head of the holder.
While I have shown and described what I consider` to be the preferred embodiment of my ine `thereunder into end to end relation, .said guard plate sections having guard teeth on the side edges thereof which extend beyond the plane of the side edges of the clamping plate, said clamping plate and guard plate sections being adapted to have a double edge razor blade interposed therebetween, bendable tongue and slot connections between said guard plate sections and said `clamping plate for securing the same in clamping relation, and a pair of finger grip elements connected to the adjacent inner ends of the guard plate sections along lines of fold, whereby said nger grip elements may be folded at against the respective guard plate sections for compact packaging purposes, and subsequently unfolded by bending them to a position at right angles to said guard plate sections into contacting engagement with each other when the razor is intended for use and by which the razor may be grasped and held by the thumb and forenger of the user.
2. A` safety razor as set forth in claim 1, in which the finger grip elements are provided with concavities which open outwardly when the finger grip elements are in finger grasping position.
3. A safety razor of the non-replaceable blade type comprising a clamping plate, a pair of guard plates underlying said clamping plate and having their respective outer ends integral with the ends of the clamping plate, a double edge razor blade interposed between said clamping plate andthe `guard plate sections, -bendable tongue and `slot fastening connections between said clamping plate and the guard 'plate sections, the tongues of the tongue and slot fastening connections passing through slots inthe razor blade and bent against the clamping plate, and a pair of finger grip elements integral with and fiexibly connected to the innerends of said guard plate sections for compact folding thereagainst for packaging purposes, and for unfolding to a position at right angle to the guard plate sections when the razor is to be used for shaving purposes.
