` JACOB F. KAYIioia, or PEKIN, ILLINOIS.
WATER-CARRYING ATTACHMENT Fon Bezons.
To alt whom t may concern i Be it known that I, JACOB F. KAYLOR, citizen ofthev United States, residing at Pekin, in the county of Tazewellfand State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Water-Carrying Attachments for Razors; and'I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, which will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same. g
This invention vrelates to improvements in razors.`
Said invention relates to a water-holding attachment for a razor ofthe safety type, or for the ordinary form, being particularly adaptedfor the former because of its extreme conveniencel for the purpose `of keeping th`e lather moist upon the face.
Another object is to provide an attachment for a razor which, before therazor is made use of upon the face, may be charged with waterso that the lather previously ap- 'plied to the face will be kept moist during the entire shaving' operation.
Still another'obyect is to provide an attachment for arazor that can be charged with water from which, from time 'to vtime, l
during the shaving operation, the water can be discharged upon the lather upon the face.
To the end that the invention may be understood, I have provided the accompanying drawing, in which,
Figure I is a longitudinal section of a' common type of safety razor showing my invention in connection therewith in one of its forms.
Fig. Q- is a somewhat similar view to that shown in Fig. 1, but in part section only, showing still another modification of the invention.
Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the razor showing parts in longitudinal section a slight modification of the water carrying specification of Letters Patent.'
There extends through the `portion and the stem D, longitudinally, a Very smalliboreA indicated by M, M', Mzrespectively, each .of which' terminates within'the tubular sereplaced will prevent the water escaping since sufficient air cannotv enter "through the very smallbore Mkto release it.\ However, when the razor is in use on the face vthe screw on being turned down little by'little into the threads of the/part Gr forcesfthe y Patented Aplt, 1920. y

waterthrough the said bore Mont upon the'portion E and thence-upon-the'face. `In Fig.- 2 the bore M is preferably enlargedl at its inner end atl) and receivesthe tip Q of a tube It of glass or'other suitable materialwhich at its outer end is providedwith a collapsible container S of rubber,ffor example, both thetube and container being filled with water when desired to be discharged through 'sai'd passage M byp'ressure of the linger upon Asaid container.
In Fig. 3 the body 'A and the part G are cut away at one side to form a recess T, while av collapsible container U lies in the bore of the part Gr, this also havingv a stein V to enter the enlarged bore P of the bore h 2. The recess T admits of placing the linger upon the said collapsible container U so that the water contained therein may be forced out through said bore M2. The containers R and U can be readily inserted and withdrawn from the open end of the handle. In all of the forms described the portion E may be used to work the water into the lather to keep the skin softened so that easy shaving is possible without the use of the lin ers or a brush for the purpose.
7hile I have shown these several forms of water-holding devices for a safety razor,
other forms will readily suggest themselves to the practical person and other type .of safety-razors may be as readily fitted by certain adaptations of the ideas shown.
I am aware of the fact that a safety razor has been patented wherein a collapsible font has been employed which is designed to deliver water near the working edge of the razor blade but not upon the blade itself.
In my device, as explained, the water is delivered upon the blade itself remote from its' Working edge so that it Will bc distributed along said edge. It thereby keeps the lather thoroughly moistened sothat .it cann not dry upon or build up upon the razor blade or upon the parts of the razor body. Furthermore, the surface to be shaved is thoroughly moistcned at the Sametime, the
lather Working up upon the blade and the body ofV 'theimplementfbeing thus utilized tofkeeptheface in perfect condition for clean, easy sha-v1 g.
. My invention, is of .practical Value as applied to safety razors and may be constructyed linanyfdesired`manner to be accmmodated to the particular `style or type of the many forms `novv on the market.
Having thus described my invention, lclalm: f
f1. The combination with a safety razor `com-prising'in its construction tvvol portions anda blade clamped between them, of a receptacle on oneof the portions for containing Water, there, being a passage communi- ,cati1'1gWith andfextending from said receptacle throughone of the clamping portions,
said passage terminating at a point between the ,Working yedges of the blade, lthe Water ,therefromA being deposited through said 'passage upon thef'structure in position to run down to and upon the Working edge of said blade.
12.The combination with a safety razor including a handle portioniand a clamping portion., and a blade clamped between them, of a lreceptacle for Water carried bythe handle portion, one of the parts having ay passage communicating With andextending from the receptacle through one of the parts and terminating adjacent and opposite the blade between its cutting edges for the delivery of Water from the receptacle upon said blade.v i
3. A razor including in its construction twoclamping'portions for a blade to beheld between them,4 and a handle extending from one of them, part of said handle being h0lloW and havinga rpassage communicating with the cavityiv thus provided, the-Same eX- tending through thestructureto one ofthe exposed` surfacesy of one of said clamping portions whereby Water containedin the cavity Will` flow upon said surface, and means to\go vern the ioW of Water through said passage.; l L 4f.. A razor including in itsconstruction a pair of clamping portions for receiving and clamping a blade between them,.one of the portions havingl a handle extending therefrom including a passage extending through the structure to one of the surfaces of lone of the portions, a receptacle for containing Water cbmmunicating Withthepassage, and means to governthe flow of Water through said passage. f Y
