GEORGE E. GRIER, OF POMONA, CALIFORNIA.'
PEELING AND GOUGING KNIFE.
SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 658,774, dated October 2., 1900. Application led March 3, 1900. Serial No. 7,218. (No model.)
T0 all whom, it may concern:
Beit known that I, GEORGE E. GRIER, a citizen of the United States, with residence and post-ofce address at 397 East Libby street, in the city of Pomona, county of Los Angeles, and State of California, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Peeling and Gouging Knives, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification.
My invention relates to an improved form of knife for peeling fruit, vegetables, &c., and for gouging out or cutting away imperfect parts, eyes, knots, &c. and my invention consists in certain features of novelty hereinafter described and claimed.
Figure I is a perspective view of my improved knife. Fig. II is a side elevation. Fig. III is a longitudinal section taken on line III III, Fig. II. Fig. IV is a transverse section taken on line IV IV, Fig. II. Fig. V is a transverse section taken on line V V, Fig. II. Fig. VI is a side elevation of the knife detached from the guard.
Referring to the drawings, 1 represents a handle of rany approved construction.
2 represents a bow-shaped guard, having a shank 3 extending into the handle l and preferably secured therein by means of a pin 4 passing through the handle and shank.
5 represents ears, which are an integral part of the guard 2 and which extend at right angles with the length of the guard, said ears being provided with screw-holes 6, in which are inserted screws '7 for holding the knifeblade 8 in its connection with the guard. The body of the knife-blade 8 is curved upwardly, as shown at 9, to conform with the curvature of the bow-shaped guard 2.
l0 represents slots in the fiat parts 8, adjacent to the body of the knife-blade 8, extending lengthwise of the blade and in which the screws 7 are inserted in securing the knifeblade to the guard, said slots 10 permitting of endwise movement or play of the knifeblade in its adjustment to and from the guard, it being obvious that the nearer the blade is set to the face of the guard the thinner the peeling will be.
In setting the knife-blade so as to form a greater or less space between the same and the face of the guard the knife-blade is pressed upwardly bythe thumb, (see Fig. I and dotted lines, Fig. IIL) the knife-blade moving on the ears toward the cen ter, and when the knife-blade has been pressed sufficiently close to take off the desired thickness of the peeling the screws 7 are turned uponv the knifeblade, thus rrnly setting the knife-blade at the desired position without having to move it laterally. The guard 2 is provided with an inner and lower rounded face ll, which facilitates its movement smoothly over the article being peeled, and it is also provided with an inner upper rounded face 12 adjacent to the cutting edge I3 of the knife-blade, said oval or rounded face forming a free clearance-way for the peeling as it passes between the knifeblade and the guard. The knife-blade is also provided with a point 14, having a cutting edge 17 and extending beyond the outer end of the guard 2, said point being curved in cross-section, as shown at 15, in order that in cutting out objectionable spots, eyes, blossom ends, &c., of the article being peeled the same may be done in a smooth manner, giving the article a smoother appearance when peeled and at the same time forming aconsiderable saving in not cut-ting away good portions of the fruit or vegetable, that would be done with a dat knife-blade.
The outer end of the point 14 preferably bends upwardly from the outer end of the guard, as shown at 16, thus permitting the inner end of the point to descend into the hollows in the fruit or vegetable without the point cutting into the good portions of the article being peeled.
I claim as my inventionl. In a device of the kind described, the combination of a suitable handle, a bowshaped guard and a bow-shaped knife-blade having iiat parts adjacent to the bow formed with slots running parallel with its length and means for securing the knife-blade by means of its flat parts adjustably to the guard, substantially as set forth.
2. In a device of the kind described, the combination of a suitable handle, a bowshaped guard having ears extending at right blade is secured by means of its flat parts, angles with the body of the guard, screw-holes substantially as set forth. iu the ears, a [iexible bow-shaped knife-blade having fiat parts adjacent to the bow formed GEORGE E GRIER with slots running parallel with its length and Witnesses:
screws adapted to be inserted in said slots and H. E. WOLCOTT,
screwed fast to the guard whereby the knife- C. F. SCHWERER.
