2,979,029 EYEBROW PENCIL AND SHARPENER THEREFOR Zachary Melnikolf, Beverly Hills, Calif. (351 S. Fuller Ave., Los Angeles 36, Calif.)

Filed on. 28, 1957, Ser. No. 692,885 2 Claims. (Cl.120- -1) This invention relates to a cosmetic device and particularly to an eyebrow pencil having a built-in sharpener.

Eyebrow pencils of several types are well known, one type being shown in my Patent No. 2,565,715, of April 28, 1951. In this prior patent, a fixed lead screw propels and repels an eyebrow crayon into a multi-blade sharpener, the crayon being under the tension of a spring during the sharpening operation. The present invention is an improvement over prior pencils from the standpoints of construction and the sharpening operation which prevents breakage of the crayon and improves the sharpening technique of the crayon itself. With the present construction, the crayon is fed into the sharpener at a predetermined rate providing the optimum of smooth sharpening action. Since the crayon is not under spring pressure during sharpening, the crayon maintains its same position after the sharpener is removed. Because the crayon is not pressed into the sharpener at any time except during the sharpening operation, sticking or adhering action of the crayon to the sharpener is eliminated. Further more, the assembling operation has been simplified'by the use of an expandable fiat spring ring mounted between two shoulders of the crayon holder to maintain the holder in the body portion of the pencil. Furthermore, a spring permits the propelling and repelling screw to always thread itself in the crayon holder.

The principal object of the invention, therefore, is to facilitate the construction of an eyebrow pencil and builtin sharpener and the sharpening action of the crayon thereof.

Another object of the invention is to provide an improved propelling and repelling mechanism for the crayon of an eyebrow pencil in association with a sharpener for the crayon.

A further object of the invention is to provide a mechanism having an improved connecting and feeding mech anism for the crayon of an eyebrow pencil and a sharpener therefor.

A better understanding of this invention may be had from the following detailed description when read in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which:

Fig. 1 is a cross-sectional view of an eyebrow pencil and sharpener therefor embodying the invention.

Fig. 2 is a cross-sectional view taken along the line 22 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a cross-sectional view taken along the line 3-3 of Fig. 1; and

Fig. 4 is an elevational view having a portion broken away to show the sharpening action of the pencil shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3-.

Referring, now, to the drawings in which the same reference numerals identify the same elements, the pencil includes a hollow body portion 5 having a coil spring 6 at the closed end thereof with one end in contact with the end of a propelling and repelling screw 7. The lower end 8 of the screw 7 is hexagonal and is adapted to be accommodated in a hexagonal portion of the body 5 so that rotation of the body 5 will rotate the screw 7.

Patented Apr. 11-, rea

Extending into the upper portion of the body 5 is a step tapered crayon holder 11, the lower end 12 of'which is interiorly threaded to accommodate the threads of the screw 7, these threads being fine to the inch), the purpose of which will be explained hereinafter.

The crayon holder 11 has two annular shoulders 14 and 15 between which is a split expandable fiat spring ring 16. The friction of this ring against the inner surface of the upper end of the body portion 5 firmly maintains the crayon holder within the body 5. This form of construction not only satisfactorily holds holder 11 within the body 5 'but also permits rapid assembly of'the two elements.

At the upper end of the screw 7 there is a post 18 hav-. ing a portion 19 thereof threaded and to which is threaded a cylindrical crayon socket 20. A crayon 22 is supplied with the socket 20 thereon, it only being necessary to thread the socket on the post 18 to replace a crayon. Shown mounted on a large diameter portion 24 and a small diameter portion 25 of the holder 11 is a crayon sharpener 27 having two blades 28. Over the small diameter portion of the sharpener, a cap 30 may be positioned providing a smooth over-all exterior to the pencil.

There are three important features embodied in the above-described eyebrow pencil construction and sharpener combination. First, the fine threads of the screw 7 provide the optimum speed of advancement of a crayon with respect to the sharpening action by the blades 28 so that a well defined and clean wide shaving 31 is always produced and easily disposed of. Furthermore, at the conclusion of the sharpening operation, the crayon 22 remains at its fixed position, there being no spring pressure applied to the crayon during the sharpening operation. After the pencil has been used, the sharpener may be replaced on the crayon holder 11 and there will be no pressure on the crayon into the sharpener blades. This prevents any adhesion between the soft crayon and the blades 28 which would cause breakage of the crayon at the next sharpening operation. Secondly, the use of the wide split spring ring 16 permits rapid assembly of the elements of the pencil to'reduce the manufacturing cost. Third, if during the repelling action, the end of screw 7 is removed from the threads at the lower end 12 of the holder 11, and it is desired to reconnect the screw to the holder, the spring 6 provides sufficient pressure of the screw 7 against the holder 12 for the threads to engage. Thus, there is no occasion to remove the holder 11 from the body 5 in the event the screw '7 is removed from the holder. The above features provide satisfactory operation at all times.

I claim:

1. An eyebrow pencil holder and sharpener therefor comprising a hollow body section, a crayon holder section for holding a crayon and adapted to be accommodated within a portion of said body section, a crayon sharpener mounted on said holder section, a cap mounted on said sharpener, a rotatable screw within said body section and threaded into One end of said holder section for rotating said crayon and moving said crayon axially into said sharpener, means surroundinga portion of said holder section and adapted to contact a portion of the inner surface of said body section, and means for exerting axial pressure on said screw when said screw is in a predetermined position in said body section, said holder section being step tapered, said sharpener being mounted on the larger diameter portion of said holder section, said diameter being less than the outside diameter of said body section, a portion of said sharpener forming a portion of the exterior surface of said pencil.

2. An eyebrow pencil holder and sharpener therefor comprising a hollow body section, a crayon holder sec- 7 apropos tion having two portions of difierent outside diameters for holding a crayon and adapted to be accommodated with-' in a portion of said body section, a crayon sharpener mounted, on saidholder section, a cap mounted on said sharpener, a rotatable screw within said body section and threaded into one end of said holder section for rotating said crayon and moving said crayon axially into said sharpener, means surrounding a portion of said holder section and adapted to contact a portion of the inner surface of said body section, and means for exerting axial pressure on said screw when said screw is in a predetermined position in said body section, said holder section being tapered, said sharpener being mounted on the larger diameter portion of said holder section, said larger diameter being less than the outside diameter of said body section,
