Application February 18, 1935, Serial No. 7,038 8 Claims. (01. 30-35) My invention relates to razors and has for its object to provide anew and e?icient safety razor with the head adapted to be partially rotated and tiltedto adapt it to be stropped on any suitable . strop. A further object is to provide a razor which may be‘used with thewguard either a flat type or with the guard toothed. A still further object is to provide a razor which 10 will give longer life and a greater number of shaves per blade than those now commonly used. A‘still further object is to provide a razor which when the’guard is drawn away from the blade; may'have the seat tilted side ways to be 15 come parallel with and in alignment with the handle and which has the guard then in a tilt able position so that both edges of the blade may be‘st'ropp’ed by an action similar to stropping a‘ straight edge razor of‘ the old type. 20 A still further object is to provide a razor head, guard, and blade, with the guard and blade slid able in the head and adapted to beslightly with drawn to a distance that‘ the edge of the blade, the guard, and head,’ will be on a proper angle for stropping' the blade. ’ A still further object is to provide a reversable guard adapted to be used for either a bar guide for shaving, or a toothed guide for shaving with the‘bla'de and guard pivotally connected, and the blade and guard to be drawn slightly from the head; and the guard to move from side to side of ’ the blade when it is being stropped, in a motion‘ similar to that‘ used for stropping the usual straight edged razor. 35 Theseobjects I accomplish with the device illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which similar numerals and letters, of reference indicate like parts throughout the several views and as described in‘the speci?cation forming a part of this application and pointed out in the appended claims. In the drawing, Figure 1 is a face view of the razor as used for shaving with the ?at guard against the face. 45 Figure 2 is a side elevation of Figure 1. Figure 3 is a. side elevation of Figure 2 with theihandle extended ready to turn the head'and with the guard withdrawn from looking position with the'blade and head. 50' Figure 4 is a side elevation of the handle with the guard and head removed.

Figure 13 is a view of the razor head like Fig ure 12 with the strop shown stropping the op posite side of the blade. 1 Figure 14 is a section on line I 4-H! of Figure 10 1 showing the locking lugs holding the head and blade in the locked position for shaving. In the drawing I have shown my razor as a head A, to which a handle B is pivotally secured by a pivot pin I. The head A has a slot 2 along the under side 3 of the head and the top side It is made as a solid plate. The handle is in serted into the head and secured thereto by the pivot pin and the slotnallows the head to be tilt ed to a position parallel to the handle for strop lJlng- . , The head A consists of the top side 4 and the _ bottom. side 3 formed with a box like back por tion 5 joining them together with the sides 3 h‘, and [3 parallel or substantially so, and with these “ two sides the blade engaging portions of the head. The blade C is inserted between the two sides 3 and ii and extends beyond a short dis— tance for proper shaving. The outer sides of each side 3 and ll of the head are chamfered to make a smooth shaving line. Slots 6 and 1 are cut away from each end of, the two sides in align ment with each other and provide the space in which the locking lugs of the guard are free to move when stropping the blade. The blade C consists of a single edged blade having the sharpened edge 8 beveled in the proper angles for shaving and with a semi-circular sec tion removed from the medial portion of the back of the razor to miss the handle when the blade and head are locked in shaving position. The ends of the blade are each provided with extended stub shafts or lugs 9 to be used in en gaging the guard and blade together. The guard for the blade consists of a U-shaped guard plate i?whaving the legs} H extended back at right an gles thereto with the face it of the guard plate wide and with one edge notched as at I3 and the other edge Hi smooth to provide either type of 0 shaving guard desired. The ends of the legs H are formed into semi extended and head turned ready for stropping the circular perforated bearings l5 adapted to ?t when strapping with dotted lines to indicate the position of the guard when stropping the opposite onto the stub shafts or lugs 9 of the blade C thus, securing the guard and blade in ?xed distance relation to each other, but with the guard pivot ally attached so that it may be partially rotated on the stub shafts. This makes all of the parts, blade. 55 Figure 6 is an end view of the head and guard side “of the blade edge. Figure 7 is a side view of the guard. Figures is a face‘ view of Figure 7. of my razor rheadrand the head is assembled by ?rst securing the handle in the head by the pivot 2 2,105,535 pin and when the handle is secured thereto the blade is inserted into the head between the top guard having lugs on each leg thereof to lock the guard, blade and head in fixed relation when and bottom sides 3 and 1i with the stub shafts slid into the back portion 5 of the head. The shaving. guard is then passed over the head‘ of the razor ably mounted to a handle; a blade to ?t into and the two legs ll passed up each end of the head until the bearings l5 engage the stub shafts 9 of the blade. The two legs are then slightly sprung apart until the bearings pass over the ends IO of the shafts 9 and the razor is then assembled. The handle for the razor consists of the tele scoping bar 25 to telescope into the handle proper 21 with a locking spring 22 secured in the handle and with the turned end 24 adapted to ?t into either of the notches 25 of the bar Zii to either the head having each end of tie blade formed with stub shafts; a reversible guard for said blade having one edge smooth and the other edge notched said guard to be pivotally secured to said blade on'the stub shafts at each end of the blade said blade and guard to be drawn from the head slightly to allow‘ for stropping the blade on both sides thereof. .lock the handle extended as in Figure 3 or folded as in Figure l. The bar 2i) is made narrower at the razor en gaging end 27 to pass through the slot '2 of the .head A and a spring 28 is formed parallel to ‘the end 2? to normally hold tension of the head and to lock the head and handle in temporary position when they are turned for sharpening. The handle proper 2! is provided with the top end provided with two extended flat bosses 29 and 30 with the boss 29 shortened and adapted to engage the slanting face SI of the box-like por tion of the head A, and with the longer boss 35 to engage the back side of the slanting face 32 of the 30 head A, and these two bosses hold the head rigid to the handle when the handle is locked in the telescoped or folded position, shown in "Figure 1 of the drawing. Further, as. a locking means for the guard plate to hold the blade and guard in ?xed position to the razor when in ?xed position, ;each leg i I of the guard i ll is provided with spaced apart inwardly bent lugs 34 and 35 on one leg, and 36 and 3'? on the other leg, and these lugs are adapted to move in the slots i5 and ‘i when sharp 40 ening the blade but, the lug 34 on one leg l l and it, the like lug 36 on the other leg I I, are adapted to engage the slanting face 35 when the blade and guard are pressed back into the head to lock the guard and blade in ?xed relation to the head for shaving. The other two lugs 35 and 37 are to en gage the same slanting face when the opposite 1i. In a razor, the combination of a head tilt 5.
