YPATENTEDAUGJIIQQQ I COMBINED PENCIL HOLDBRAND SHARPENERV'.
APPLICATION FILED PBB.5, 1908.
IN V N TOR ELLWOOD 51101 111116, I
v To all whoni. it may concern;-
Be it known that I,- ELLWOOD E. Hor- KINS, of Philadelphia, in the county of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania,
1 have invented certain new and useful 1111- prove'ments in a Combined Pencil Holder and Sharpener, whereof thefollowing is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings.
This invention relates to improvements in compound implements used mainly in preparing and protecting the points of pen cils and its ObjQCiS are: First, to provide an implementadapted to be retained at all times in connection with a pencil, as when not in use on the pencil point it may be disposed on the other'end. Second, to provide an implement including an integral shar ening means, effective in reducing the woo surrounding the lead core in ordinary pencils and combinedwith means whereby the chips and fragments removed are retained and prevented from soiling either the person or premises.- Third, to provide an implement, comprising an eraser, an
'efficient point protector and a sharpener fully described and shown in the accompanying drawings, forming part of this spec fication, and 1n wlnch:-
l 'igure I, is a side elevation of the rubber tip eraser and its holder, drawn to an enlarged scale and partially in section. Fig. ll, 18 a similar view of the sharpener. Ilg.
' III, is a side elevation of the sharpener,
showing the manicuring devices. Fig. IV, is a side elevation of the sleeve, connecting the sharpener to a pencil and actin as a protector- Fig. Y, is a greatly en la'rged cross section of the sharpener. Fig. VI, is
' a similar cross section, indicating a modified form of sharpener, having a detachable blade. Fig. VII, is a side elevation of the combined implement- .The invention comprises a hollow steel cone 1, having a short cylindrical sleeve 2, in-
tegral with it anda slotway 3, passing lon itudinally through both parts; one of t e Specification of Letters Patent. Application filed February 5, 190a. sexism. 414,342; a

while the other side similarlysrnoothly finished through the sleeve portion, but the edge is pressed. inwardl forming in effect, a knife blade or cutter 4,
the edge of which is disposed in such manner as to en age with whatever may be inserted tal withdrawal, but'not enough to hinder removal when desired, or impede the 0 ra-' tion of revolving the pencil within the s eeve in the rocess of sharpening it. The opposite end of the sleeve 5, is enlarged, as at 7 and is so made as to receive the cylindrica end of the sharpener 2, which is adapted. to
be ti htly sprung into it and thereby r etained normally, the slotway 3, being compressed by being forced into the sleeve therey causing a tensional contact; a depressed portion 13, of the sleeve 7, also acts as a key within the slotwa ,preventing the sharpener so I from turning in t e sleeve; the outer surface of the enlarged part 7, of the sleeve is also.
referably corrugated for convenience in smiling and operating the implement with reference to a pencil.
A rubber ti eraser 8, is removably securedjn the ho der 9, which is provided with an elongated slot 10, allowing the sleeve to pass over and be retained upon the cylindrical ortion 2, of the shar ener extending from t e sleeve 7, when the s iarpener is connected therein; the body 2, is of proper diameter so as to closel fit the sharpener, but may be enlarged w iere' it surrounds the knife to allow the chips to readil fall therefrom and be retained in said l)0( y.
In operation a. pencil is inserted within the sleeve 5,. pushed forward until it .c'ontacts with the knife blade 4, and then revolved in the proper direction by the fingers; this a(:- 100 tion causes a shaving to be removed from the pencil and if continued the woodcovering will be removed from the lead to the extent desired, leaving a conical oint. It is noticeable that the lead itse in the interior of the sharpener, so that it is not easily broken by the'action of: the knife. It\i s also noticeable that the chips are retained in the holder until such time as it throughout the conical portion and shape into a sharp bevel,
has a bearing 105 slot sides is finished smoothly throughout, may be-cpnvenient to dispose of the same, 110
. HI i thus prevgxing the'annoyance of chips and dirt in-shar f p ng pencils. l From an inspection of the drawings it will i be evident that: all parts are made readily ini terchangeable,'- articularly the sharpener, whiclrwhen dull or worn by repeated use, l maybediscarded nd a new sharpener easily inserted and thatthis can be done by inexperienced persons ata-trifling ex ense.
In the modification shown in Fig. VI, is indicated a form ofi'sliarpener having aknife 15, inserted in a rentrantly turned portion 16, of the sharpener 2,; said blade being held securely but solelv by; the clamp frictionof the contacting si es andreadily removable when desired. The absence of all screzvs, solder or other holdin ,means is evident from inspection, the blades beig merely slip ed into position, the sharpenem bei made in both cases from drawn sheet stee and formed -from a single pieceby the use of suitably constructed dies and zproper power pres'ses.
' Referring to the manicure features of the implement, the sharply cut recess 11, transverse of the sharpener and formed close to the sleeve 7, when the same is positioned on the sharpener, provides a cutter for trim-s ming the nails, which can be used with perfect safety, no danger from inadvertent cuts being possible, while an efi'ective trimming device is attained, leaving the nails in a smooth and satisfactory condition; not only I can any preferred shape be obtained but the edges .of the nails are rounded and smoothed in a manner not possible to attain. vvith a knife. 4
At the extreme-front end of the sharpener is formed a projection 12, of the proper sizeand she )e to remove accumulations from be- 5 Death t 10 nails andlwithout injury to the cuticle. A nail file is also provided on a flattened portion 17, onthe conical portion 1, of the sharpener 2.
The convenience of the combination is 5 thought to be manifest.
Having thus described my invention, what 1 I claim as new and desire to secure by Leti ters Patent of the United States, is:-
1. In a combined pencil holder and sharpener, the combination of a sleeve; a cutter formed of a split tube having a slotvvay and 1 frictio'n'ally retained in said sleeve; and a projection on said sleeve entering the slotvvay of a said split tube to prevent relative rotation of said tube and sleeve.
' 2. In a combined pencil holder and sharpsaid tube and sleeve; and an eraser holder] frictionally secured to the exterior of said cutter and forminga chip retaining recept'acle.
3. In an instrument of the class described the combination of a sleeve; a cutterformed of a split tube which is conical at amend and provided with an integral pro'ection at its apex, the outer surface of sai conical portion being provided with transverse cuts forming a file, said cutter being frictionally retained in said sleeve.
'4. In an instrument of the class described, the combination of a sleeve and a removable cutter formed of a split tube which is frictionally retained in said sleeve and is conical at oneend and provided with an integral projecti0- at its :1 ex. 5 P
he combination of a pencil cutter having a tubular and a conical port-ion formed integrally of a single piece of metal and slotted along one side from point to base, one edge of the slot being shar )ened throughout the ex tent of the conical ortion of the cutter; a sleeve provided with a seat adapted to receive the tubular lpart of the cutter and retain it therein unt er com ression; and a lug Within the sleeve adapte to engage the slot in said tubular )OItiOII, whereby the cutter is removably held within the sleeve, the engagement of the lug preventing rotative movement.
6. In an instrument of the class described, the combination with a sleeve; of a removable cutter formed of a tube which is conical at one end, split throughout its entire length and frictionally and detach'ably retained in said slecve;said tube being provided with an aperture having its periphery a cutting edge.
