To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, CHARLES W. RUSSELL, of Milford, in the county of Worcester and State of Massachusetts, have invented a new 'andvalnable Compound Pencil-Holder and Twine-Cutter; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the construction and operation of the same, reference being had to the annexed drawin g making a part of this specification, and to the letters and figures of reference marked thereon.
Figure 1 of the drawing is a representation of a side view of my invention. Fig. 2 is a view of the blank before bent into shape, and Fig. 3 is a cross-section of Fig. 1.
This invention has relation to lead-pencil holders; and consists in the novel construction and arrangement of a cord or twinecutter and a pin, by which to attach the device to the clothes of the user, substantially as hereinatterdescribed.
In the drawing, A represents the pencilholder, which is constructed from a T-shaped sheet of metal bent to a cylindrical form. Lengthwise of the metal sheet tongues a are cut, and are bent inwardly, so as as to clasp the pencil as springs and hold it inplace. At a a tongue is formed, and at e, a pair of correand the holder.
sponding ears. The latter are perforated, and, when the holder is being shaped, are bent outwardly, and have pivoted to them the pin f. The tongue 6 is curved to a hook form, and is used to secure the point-en'd of the pin. The ears h are bent outwardly, as shown, and have secured between them a tapering knife, i, hav' ing its inner edge sharpened.
This knife is designed for use in cutting cord or twilie, which is pressed between said edge The lower part of the edge enters the crevice between the two adjacent edges of the holder, and thereby tends to more easily sever the cord or twine. The device is designed especiall y for the use of salesmen.
What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
' The compound implement, consisting of the pencil-holder A, springs a, pin f, and cordcutter i, all constructed and arranged substantially as shown and specified. 1
In testimony that I clainrthe above I have hereunto subscribed my name in the presence of two witnesses.
