LOWER BLADE FOR BARBER CLIPPBRS Filed March 12. 1929 n n w? t q :Qx: c

I IIIII l l I l gwwmtoz flan??- 71201504451? latented Feb. 3, 1931 UNITED STATES ALBERT 'r. scHEIwnn, or ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA LOWER BLADE FOR, BARBER (IJLIETPIPERS Application filed March 12, 1929. Serial No. 346,441.

This invention relates to a lower blade for a barbers clipper, and it is an object of the invention to provide a blade of this kind which eliminates the liability of a bowl effect 6 upon clipping the hair.

It is also an object of the invention to provide a blade of this kind embodying a curved extensionwhich serves to lead the hair down to the cutting edge of the clipper thus eliminating an unfinished clipper line and which also permits use of the clipper without chattering as the clipper may lie firm on the scalp from the nose to the heel of the clipper, thus assuring a perfect tapering hair cut.

An additional object of the invention is to provide a blade of this kindwherein the use of a comb during a hair cutting operation is minimized The invention consists in the details of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts of my improved lower blade for a barbers clipper whereby certain important advantages are attained and the device rendered simpler, less 5 expensive and otherwise more convenient and advantageous for use, as will be hereinafter more fully set forth. l

The novel features of my'invention will hereinafter be definitely claimed.- 7 In orderthat my invention may be the better understood, I will now proceed to describe the same with reference to the accompanying drawing, wherein Figure 1 is a view in side elevation of a lower blade for hair clippers constructed in accordance with an embodiment of my invention, associated parts of the clipper being indicated by broken lines;

Figure2 is a view in topplan of the blade as herein disclosed;

Figure 3 is a view in front elevation of the blade as illustrated in Figure 2.

As disclosed in the accompanying drawing, l3 denotes the body portion of a lower 45 blade for hair clippers constructed in accordance with an embodiment of my invention and wherein the under surface of said blade in cross section is curved. The forward F or working edge portion of the blade is straight and has projecting therefrom longi- 'tudinally spaced teeth :1. Substantially every other tooth 1 is provided with" a forwardly disposed and upwardly curved extension 2. The working ends of. the blade are also provided with ithe forwardly disposed and upwardly curved extensions 3 complemental to the extensions 2, said extensions 3 being. relatively broad. It is also to be understood that the extensions 2 and 3 are positioned substantially entirely above a barber. This is of advantageespeciallywhen the barber is unskilled andfails to cut out the clipper line with the fine part of the comb and scissors which would result in giving the hair cut a bowl effect. With my improved lower blade this bowl efiect cut is eliminated as the extensions 2 and 3 prevent theclipper leaving an unfinished clipper line. The rolling action which the extensions per- .1 mit the clipper to have prevents the clipper from chattering as it lies firm on the scalp moving, from the nose to the heel of the clipper, thus assuring a perfect tapering hair cut.

The extensions 2 and 3 also permit the clipper to be used with the cutting edge close to the scalp at allftimes, thus substantially eliminating the liability of the hair cut having knicks which are very difficult to cut out with the fine part of a comb and scissors and Igvhich work is extremely tedious for the bar- From the foregoing description it is thought to be obvious that a lower blade for v a barbers clipper constructed in accordance with my invention is particularly well adapted for use by reason of the convenience and facility with which it may be assembled and operated, and it will also be'obvious that my be invention is susceptible of some change and modification without departing from the principles and spirit thereof and for this reason I do not wish to be understood as limiting myself to the precise arrangement and {)9 formation of the several parts herein shown in carrying out my invention in practice eX- cept as hereinafter claimed.

I claim A lower blade for barber clippers comprising a body having a relatively flat upper surface adapted for engagement With a flat reciprocatory cutter blade, a plurality of cutter teeth on the forward edge of said body, and a plurality of upwardly and forwardly curved comb teeth integrally formed with certain of said cutter teeth and adapted to hold the hair therebetween for engagement with the cutter teeth, said body having a curved lower face portion the curved portion of the body terminating rearwardly of the forward ends of the cutter teeth.

In testimony whereof I hereunto aifix my signature.
