HAIR CUTTING DEVICE

6 Claims.
(01. so-so)
My invention more particularly relates to ya
hereinafter described, is shaped to engage and
device for thinning the hair, although it will, of
be secured to the back of the comb and is gen
erally U-shaped in form as best indicated in
Fig. 5. V The legs BI and I32 of the clamping
element frictionally engage opposite sides of the
course, be understood that it may be used for
other hair cutting operations. “
_
One of the objects of my invention ‘is the pro
vision of a device of the foregoing character
- which in its preferred form, comprises two“ mem
bers only; a‘clamping element which is adapted
to be secured to the back of a comb and fric
10 tionally secured thereon and which is provided
with a socket in which a cutting element is dis
posed and also frictionally ‘secured. The device
is therefore simple and cheap‘ to manufacture
and I have found that the same is very effective
in
operation.

A ‘further object“ of ‘my invention is‘ the ‘provi
comb and as the legs are so shaped as to be un
der tension when in position on the comb, the
clamping element is frictionally secured on the
comb.
The free edge of the leg I3! is provided with
a plurality of tongues l4 some of which are'bent
in one ‘direction away from the comb when the
clamping element is positioned thereon and
others of which are bent away from the comb in
the opposite direction thereby forming a socket 15

ing element is ‘readily secured to'and detached
bent in opposite direction to form the socket as
from the back of a comb, and in which the cut
20 ting element is readily secured within and de
tachable from the clamping ‘element.
A'still further object of my invention is a novel
form‘of cutting blade which,'while particularly
‘useful in a device‘ of the‘ foregoing character,
25 may also be. used as a razor bladevor for other
purposes.‘

Other objects of my invention will appear‘in
the speci?cation and the novel features thereof
will be particularly pointed out in the claims.

My invention will best be understood by refer
_ ence to the accompanying drawing in which I
have illustrated a preferred embodiment thereof
and in which
Fig. 1 is a plan view of a comb on which is
35 secured a cutting device embodying my inven
tion;
' Fig. 2 is a plan view of the clamping element
which is secured to the comb;
Fig. 3 is a plan view of the cutting blade em
bodying my invention;
Fig.4.- is an enlarged fragmentary view of a
portion of the clamping element and the cutting
blade secured therein, and
illustrated.
‘
The bases of the tongues are preferably offset, 20
those which are bent in one direction away from
the comb being offset in a given direction while
those which are bent in the opposite direction
are offset in the opposite direction thereby form
ing a ledge 10 at the bottom of the socket against ‘
which the inner edge of the cutting blade l3
may rest. The upper curved portion I33 of the
clamping element is preferably provided ‘with a
plurality of reinforcing ribs I‘! as best indicated
in Fig. 2. It will, of course, be understood that
the clamping element may be formed with suit
able dies as are the ribs which are formed there
on. The reinforcing ribs I‘! impart to the clamp
ing element sufficient strength to prevent the
same from opening up when it is subjected to 35
the tension under which it is placed when the
clamping element is placed under tension by
forcing it over the back of the comb.
The cutting blade I3 is preferably formed at
its ends with projections which extend outward 40
ly beyond the clamping element when in posi
tion on the comb thereby providing a means by
which the cutting blade may be manipulated in

throughout the drawing.
'
Referring to the drawing, I 0 is a comb to which
the hair cutting device embodying my invention
50 may be secured. The cutting device, indicated
generally at il in Fig. 4, comprises a clamp
ing element 52 and a cutting element l3. The
clamping element I2, which is formed of a ma
terial such as semi-hard, cold, rolled steel and
55 which has su?icient resiliency for the purpose
of the clamping element, thereby enabling the 45
which might otherwise occur. The free ends of
the tongues I 4 are preferably flared outwardly
at their ends as at I4! thereby facilitating the
easy insertion of the blades within the socket.
Preparatory to use, a blade is inserted in the
socket of the clamping element in the manner
heretofore indicated by the user grasping the
projections l8 on the blade and then forcing
the same between the oppositely directed tongues 55

into the socket. The clamping element is then
forced over the end of the comb where it is fric
tionally held due to the pressure exerted against
the sides of said comb by the tongues I4 and
the legs I32 which are under tension. For a
thinning operation for which the device is par
ticularly suited, the user passes the comb through
a suitable amount of hair, and the cutting blade
which is placed on the side of the comb facing
10 the direction of movement thereof, severs a por
tion of the hair, the amount of which depends
upon whether the blade is placed over the coarse
or the ?ne portion of the comb and upon the
distance of the cutting edge of the blade from >
15 the ends of the teeth of the comb.
While I have described my invention in its
preferred embodiment, it is to be understood that
the words which I have used are words of de- y
scription and not of limitation and that changes

in position thereon and o?set at their bases in
alternate directions thereby forming a socket in
which a cutting blade may be received and a ledge
against which an edge of said blade may rest.
4. In a hair cutting device, a clamping element
generally U-shaped in form and shaped to engage
the back of a comb and the legs of which are 10
engageablejwith the opposite sides of a comb, said
element being composed of resilient material, the
free edge of one of said legs being provided with
tongues some of which are bent away from said
comb in one direction and others of which are 15
bent away therefrom in the opposite direction
when "said element is in position on said comb.
thereby forming a socket for the reception of a
cutting blade, the free ends of said tongues being
?ared outwardly away from said comb when the 20
latter is in position within said socket thereby
facilitating the insertion of said blade therein.
5. In combination, a comb, a hair cutting device
secured thereto and comprising a clamping ele
be made without departing from the true scope
and spirit of my invention in its broader aspects.
What I claim is:
1. In a hair cutting device, a clamping element
generally U-shaped in form and’shap'ed to engage
the back of a comb and the legs of which are
engageablelwith the opposite sides of said comb,
said element being composed of resilient material,
the free edge of one of said legs being provided
position thereon and said element being composed
with tongues some of which are bent in one direc
tion from the comb and others of which are bent
legs being provided with tongues alternately bent

engage the back of a comb and be secured there~
to and the legs of which are engageable with
opposite sides of said comb when secured in
of resilient material, the free edge of one of said 30
away from said'comb in opposite direction when
in position thereon and forming a socket in which
a cutting blade is receivable, and a cutting blade
in the opposite direction therefrom when in po
sition thereon, thereby forming a socket in which
a cutting blade may be received.
2. In a hair cutting device, a clamping element
