Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed February 9, 1918. Serial No. 216,375.
' To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, CONRAD M. GEnLAcH, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Brooklinc, in the county of Norfolk and State of lVIassachusetts, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Safety- Razor Kits, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to safety-razor kits and its object is to provide a container of flexible material such as rain coating, khaki, leather and the like for multi-part safety razors which shall be cheaper to manufac-' ture than the boxes or hinged cases now commonly employed for this purpose.
An illustrative embodiment of my invention is shown in the accompanying drawings in which,
Figure 1 is a front view of my improved kit in open position. Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal section, and Figs. 3, 4 and 5 are edge views illustrating several steps that may be employed in making said kit.
In the particular drawings selected for illustrating my invention 1 represents a transverse strip of suitable flexible material, which is somewhat longer than the width of the piece to which it is attached, the upper side of said strip being hemmed as shown at 2. The transverse strip is then secured to a facing piece 3 by means of two rows of longitudinal stitches 4 to form' a shallow longitudinally extending pocket 5. The ends of said strip .are then stitched to the facing piece at the sides of the latter as shown at 6, 6 to form the somewhat deeper longitudinal pockets 7, 7 said strip being box-plaited as indicated at 6 for this purpose. The lower side of the transverse strip is now stitched to the lower end of the facing piece as indicated at 8.
One end of a backing strip is now stitched to the facing piece and transverse strip as indicated at 9, the backing strip folded over the stitches and bent reversely on itself as shown at 10, 11 and 12 to form the transverse pocket 13. A row of stitches 14 is now formed through the fold of the back strip, the transverse strip and the facing piece, and the backing strip is then turned up behind said facing piece as indicated at 15, the last mentioned row of stitches not passing that portion of the back strip which lies behind the facing piece, as will be obvious. The ends of the transversetpocket may be closed by any suitable means and the facing piece and back strip secured together in any suitable manner. I prefer as indicated in Figs. 1 and 2 to employ a binding 16, preferably of tape for this purpose, said binding being stitched around the edgesand upper end of the kit as indicated and thereby sccuring the backing strip and facing piece together at their sides and upper ends. A snap fastener 17 may be provided to close the transverse pocket.
Each of the pockets is arranged to receive one of the parts of a safety razor or its accessories. For example, the razor head and a box of blades will fit into the pockets 7 7 respectively and the handle into the pocket 5 while stropper which accompanies various makes of safety razor will be received in the longitudinal pocket 13.
After the parts have been placed in their respective pockets the transverse pocket will be folded up over the longitudinal pockets and the upper portion of the kit formed by the facing piece and back strip which constitutes a flap will be folded down over the transverse pocket, and the several portions of the kit secured in such folded position by any suitable means such as the cord 18 which is knotted through the eyelet 19 in the flap portion of the kit.
Having thus described an illustrative embodiment of my invention without however limiting the same thereto what I claim as new and desire to secure Letters Patent is:
1. A safety-razor kit comprising a facing piece, a transverse strip box-plaited thereto and forming therewith a plurality of longitudinal pockets located intermediate the ends of said kit, a backing strip secured at one end to the lower end of said facing piece, said backing strip being folded upon itself to form a transverse pocket and then turned up behind said facing piece, and
means closing the ends of said transverse pocket and securing said backing strip and facing piece together at their sides and up per ends. l
2. A safety-razor kit comprising a facing piece, a transverse strip box-plaited thereto and forming therewith a plurality of longitudinal pockets located intermediate the ends of said kit, the lower side of said trans verse strip being stitched to the lower end of said facing piece, a backing strip, a row of stitches passing through one end of said backing strip, said facing piece and said transverse strip, said backing strip being folded back over said row of stitches and then reversely folded on itself to form a transverse pocketand finally turned up behind said facing piece, a row of stitches passing through the fold of said backing strip, said facing piece and said transverse strip but not through that portion of said backing strip which lies behind said facing piece, and rows of stitches closing the ends of saidtransverse pocket and securing said backing strip and facing piece together at ti f the backing strip upon itself, said' their sides .and upper ends.
3. A safety-razor kit comprising a facing piece and a backing strip secured together at their sides and upperends, a plurality of longitudinal pockets formed on said facing piece intermediate the ends of .-said kit, a
' transverse pocket at the lowerend of said kit, said pocket formed by folding the lower '0 to the backing strip at its wlth the facing strip terminating adjacent facing strip being unsecured to the backing strip except at its sides and ends the securin means for the lower end being attached olded end ranged to be folded down oversaid longitudinal pockets, and means for securing the several portionsof said kit in position.

In testimony whereofv I have hereunto subscribed my name this 6th day of Febru- CONRAD M. GERLACH.
