My invention relates to improvements inv safety razors and particularly to safety razors of small and complact form adapted to be readily carried in t e pocket.

The object of m invention 1s to construct a safety razor in w ich the arts may bereadily assembled and detache a further ob3ect is to provide means for rigidly holding the head in different positions u on the handle; a further object is to provi e a novel form of clamping means for holding the cuttmg blade upon the head, said clampmgmeans havin a linger grip for readiy detachmg the same rom the head; a still further object 1s to providearazorhaving a handle forcontaming shaving soap, or cream, and rov1de novel means upon the handle for fillmg the same from a standard tube, or container, and also handle; and a still further object is provide a rod which may be carried withln the handle and adapted for discharging the shaving material from the handle. These together with various other novel features of construction and arrangement of the parts, which will be hereinafter more fully described and claimed, constitute my invention.

Referring to the accompanying drawing; Fig. l is a longitudinal central sectional view of my improved safety razor; Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view of the head as on hne 2 2, Fig. l, showing the shank of the handle attached at a different angle from that shown in Fig. 1;.Fig. 3 is an end view of the head as shown in Fig. 2, also showing the shank attached to the thread end of the handle; Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the clamp for holding the blade upon the head; Fig. 5 is a sectional view of the handle showing the head inside elevation and illustrating a different form for carrying the rod and the vmanner in which the latter is used for discharging the material from the handle.

Fig. 6 is a sectional view of the handle, shown attached to the neck of a standard shaving cream tube and illustrating how the handle may be filled from the tube.

vIn the accompanying drawing in which like reference characters refer to like arts; 5 10 represents the head of the razor whic is of means for discharging the material from the elon ated formation having at the ends upstan ng ribs 12 for holding a blade 15 upon the lat surface 16 of the head. Said head is provided with a guard 18 located adjacent to the cuttin edge of the blade 15. The ends of 55 said nar are mounted in the end ribs 12 and may e either rigidly or rotatably mounted in said ribs. The head 10 is provided with a boss 20, which is located upon the opposite surface of the head 'from the surface 16 for 5 carrying the blade 15. Said boss 20 is provided with apertures 21, 22, and 23, which are threaded and adapted to receive a shank 25 havlng a threaded end 26. Said shank forms part of a handle upon which the head may be secured, Said apertures 21 and 22 are in ali ent with each other and extend longitu inally in a line parallel with the surface 16 of the head on which the cutting blade is mounted. The shank 25 may be inserted in 7 either the aperture 21 or 22, thus making the head reversible so that the cutting edge of the blade will be suitable for either right or left hand shaving. The aperture 23, formed in Said 11055.20, is positioned with as longitudinal axis extending at right angles to the axes of the apertures 21 and 22, so that the shank 25 may be attached at right angles to the length of the head, as shown in Figs. 2, 3, and 5. By this construction the shank may be s rigidly attached to the head in diierentpositions suitable for shaving, and the shank also may be attached for carrying the head upon the shank in such a position that the ca 24. may be placed over the head, as shown in ig. 85 1, or carrying the razor in a compact form.

A U-shaped spring metal clamp-plate 27 'is provided for holding the cutting blade 15 upon the holding surface 16 of the head. Said clamp-plate embraces the blade and the 9 head and tightly holds the blade Yupon the surface 16, between the end ribs 12- of the head. One member of the clamp-plate 27 is cut in two places to form a tongue or finger grip 28 and also to form a recess-29 in the 95 plate 27, which recess may be occupied by the boss 20 of the head. The tongue 28 of, the plate 27 is bent at approximately right angles to the clamping surface of the plate 27,

to form a handle or finger grip which projects 10 slightly away from the boss so that it will be accessible for removing the clam plate 27 from the head, and from the bla e when it is desired to detach the parts.

The shank is rovided at its lower end with an enlar ed p ug 30 which is provided with a screw t read 31. A handle 32, which is of tubular formation and provided with a screw thread 33, shown detached in Fig. 5, is ada ted to receive the plug 30 within the threa ed end portion 33, as shown in Figs. 1 and 3, thus providing a handle for carryin the head which consists of the shank 25 an the tubular handle 32. The screw thread 33 formed u on the handle 32 is of the standard size and ormation found upon the standard size tubes 35, in which the shaving cream, or material, ma be purchased upon the market. The tuize 35, shown in Fig. 6, is

rovided with a threaded neck 36 which may he secured in the threaded portion 33 of the handle 32, as shown in Fig. 6, thus tightly attaching the tube 35 to the handle 32 so that the contents of the tube may be forced into the handle for filling the latter. The handle 32 is provided with a piston 38 which is slidably mounted within the handle.

Said handle 32 is provided at one end with an inwardly projecting flange 40, which is provided with a central opening 41 forming an air vent and allowing the piston 38 to be readil moved when the material is forced into t e handle from a tube 35, as shown in Fig. 6. Said aperture 41 also provides -means for the insertion of a rod for moving the piston 38, for forcing the material out of the threaded end portion 33 when it is desi/red to use the material. A rod 45, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2 is provided for moving the piston 38 and is adapted to be carried within the handle 32.

The plug 30 is provided with an aperture 46 which extends approximately parallel with the axis of the shank 25. Said aperture is provided in the plug 30 for the purpose of carrying the rod 45, as shown in Fig. 1, and also providing a passageway for the dis- Y charging of the material from the handle 32,

when the rod is removed. By inserting the rod in the o ning 41 of the handle, the piston 38 may moved for forcing the material from the handle. The aperture 46 is located in the plu 30 so that the material will be discharge at a oint adjacent to the shank 25 immediately helow the head of the razor so that the material may be conveniently removed by the finger for using the same in the usual manner. The rod 45 may be replaced in the handle 32 by inserting the rod into the aperture 46 and forcing the pis'- ton 38V to the lower end of the handle against the flange 40, thus closing the opening 41 to revent leaka of any material from vthe ower end of t e handle.

Fig. 5 illustrates a rod 50, which is rigidly carried upon the lug 30 of the shank instead of being detacha ly mounted upon the plug, as shown in Fi 1.

In the form s own in Fig. 5 the head and shank are removed from the body 32, so that the rod may be inserted through the opening 41, of the handle, for forcing the iston 1n a direction to dischar e the materi from the end 33, of the han e.

M improved razor provides a construction in W ich the head may be ri 'dly attached in different positions upon t e handle; the cla-mp plate may be readily attached and detached for holding or removing the blade from the'head; the construction of the handle and rod carrying means, forms a convenient means for carryin the rod for dischar the material from t e handle, and the dugg ed end portion of the handle forms a convenient means for injecting the material into the handle from a standard tub or container.

Various other changes may be made in the construction and the arrangement of the parts, without departing from my invention.

1. A dispensing device comprising a handle of tubular Vformation having end openings forming a receiving and discharging opening at one end thereof and a vent opening at its opposite end, a iston slidably mounted in the handle, a rod or moving the piston within the handle, said handle having said end openings located in axial ment for the free entrance of the rod or engaging and moving the piston in either direction, a sha-nk, a plug on said shank, means for detachably securin the lug in the` discharge end of the hand e, and) means for mounting the rod upon said plug with the body of the rod extending within the handle when the piston is positioned adjacent to the vent opening of the handle.

2. A dispensing device comprising a handle of tubular formation having end openings forming a receiving and discharging opening at one end thereof and a vent opening at its o posite end, a iston slidably mounted in the A andle, a rod or moving the piston within the handle, said handle having said openings located in axial alignment for the free entrance of the rod for en ging and moving the piston in either direction, a shank, a plug on said shank, means-for detachably securing the plug in the discharge end of the handle, an said plug having a discharge aperture formed therein through which the rod may be passed into the handle and occupy the interior of the latter between the plug and the piston.

3. A dispensing device comprising a handle of tubular formation having end openings forming a receiving and discharging opening at one end thereof and a vent opening at its opposite end, a piston slidably mounted in the handle, a rod for moving the piston within the handle, said handle having said end openings located in axial alignment for the free entrance of the rod for engaging and moving the piston in either direction, said handle having a screw thread formed at said receiving and discharging end to receive the threaded neck of a container from which the handle may be filled, and a plug having a screw thread formed thereon arranged to occupy said thread upon the handle.

In testimony whereof I ax my signature.
