Application filed February as, 191s. Serial No. 219,214.

' and has for an object the provision of an part of the holder,

improved construction whereby any part of the paper may be quickly and easily cut out. a

Another object in view is to provide an improved construction which may be asso ciated with a pencil in-order to be convenient at all times.

A further object, more specifically, is the provision of a clipper forming an attachment for a pencil which may be caused to out along a given line and may start at any point on the paper.

In the accompanying drawing Figure 1 is a side view of a pencil and holder, together with a device embodying the invention.

Fig. 2 is a view similar to Fig. 1 with the shown reversed and stored in the holder.

Fig.3 is a perspective in operation. r

Fig. 4 is a sectional view' through the clipper and part of the holder shown in Fig. 1.

Fig. 5 is shown in Fig. 1, the same being on an enlarged scale.

Fig. 6 is a plan view. of the device view of the clipper and the clipper disclosing another form of the invention to that shown in Fig.1. a

Referring to the accompanying drawing by numerals, 1 indicates desired or preferred kind for holding a pencil 2, said holder carrying at its upper end a clipper 3 disclosing an embodiment of the invention. The clipper 3 is formed withra shell 4 carrying a rubber 5 at one' end so that the rubber may be arranged as shown in Fig. 2, if desired, when the pencil 2 is in use. The shell 4 is provided with an enlargement 6 fitting against the end 7 of Specification of Letters yatent.

the holder 1 so as to limit the inward movement of the shell 4.

When the clipper is in position for use it is arranged as shown in Figs. 1 and 4, whereby the rubber 5 will be located within the holder 1 and the cutter 8 will extend outwardly, said cutter being covered by a protecting and guiding member 9 arc-shaped in cross section. It will be observed that the cutter 8 is provided with an-edge 10, preferably slightlycurved at 11, extending from the point for a short distance toward the rear, whilethe point for an appreciable distance, preferably back to the point where the cutter emerges from a retaining block 13 held in the shell 4. The block 13 may be of wood, rubber or other material without departing from the spirit of the invention, said block firmly holding the cutter 8 and also the guard 9 in position.

In Fig. 6 will be seen, another form of the invention in which the guard 9 is provided with a notch or depressed portion 16 'whereby the point 14 of the cutter 8 may be seen and the operator may more easily followa given line when cutting out an article from a newspaper or other paper.

When the device is in use as shown in Fig. 3 it is grasped by the hand in any convenient mannerand point'14 forced into the paper, after which it is positioned at approximately 9. 30 angle and forced along the line or in the direction desired so as to remove a section of the paper without injuring the section removed or the paper left remain ng. When the device is not in use it may be left When it is desired to place the pencil in a pocketpreferably the parts are arranged,

Fig. 2, though this is not necessary as far as the clipper is concerned, as the guard 9 will prevent the cutter 8 from cutting the pocket. needed the clipper may be arranged as shown in Fig.2 and the pencil positioned as shown in Fig. 1 so that the entire structure will look like a pencil and holder with a rubber at one end.

What I claim is:

1. A clipper for cutting sections from newspapers and the like comprising a body, a pointed cutter having one edge sharp, and

back; 12 is curved from the pencil used from When the clipper is not a guard arc-shaped in cross-section arranged is at an appreciable angle to newspaper sec-- apart for permitting the cutter to be forced into a piece of flat paper When the device the paper.

2. A clipper for cutting tions and the like, comprising a shell, a cutfrom said shell having a shell, and a guard arc-shaped in cross sec 116 tion secured in said shell by said block and partially surrounding the cutter, the center of the guard being opposite the edge of the cutter and spaced therefrom.

3. A clipper for removing sections from 20 newspapers and the like, comprising a body,

and a cutting edge, arc-shaped in cross section spaced a short distance away guard being provided With a notch at the endso as to depress the point of said cutter.
