FOLDG SCISSORS liled Dec. 12. 1932 INVENTOR: Wdhlam Fredercck moody.
Patented Nov. 21, 1933 PATENT OFFICE FOLDING SCISSORS William Frederick Moody, Romsey, England Application December 12, 1932, Serial No. 646,899, and in Great Britain February 1, 1932 3 Claims.
This invention relates to folding scissors its object being to combine a knife sheath with a pair of double bow scissors adapted to automatically open into working position by raising points 5 of scissors with the thumb nail, or to close into the sheath at one single operation, the scissors thus constructed giving a good purchase which enables them to be used for all purposes.
Known pocket knives usually have a straight shank joined directly to the knife sheath and the other shank is straight without bow and pressed by the thumb or finger thus making such scissors veryA inconvenient to handle and not very useful.
The accompanying drawing illustrates the general principle of the invention. Figure 1 is a vertical elevation in the working position for the scissors. Fig. 2 is a corresponding rear elevation.
Fig. 3 is a section taken on line III- III of Fig.
2 but with the scissors in closed position. Fig. 4 shows a modied construction in elevation. Fig. 5 shows a View corresponding to Fig. 4 with the top plate removed and the scissors in the closed position.
In the drawing, the sheath A which advantageously is shaped as at B at one side (Fig. 4) or as at B on both sides to entirely enclose the bows of the scissors, may be provided with one or more knife blades F, pickers G, tweezers H ory other implements usually carried in a knife and which per se form no part of the invention.
The scissors themselves are formed with a xed bow C on one shank, while the other shank D is secured in the sheath on the same pivot D which carries the pivotal bow E therefor. VThe shank D carries a pin, rivet or the like K which bears against the movable bow E for the purpose of moving the same into open or closed position automatically as the scissors are moved out of 40 or into the sheath A, as will be easily understood, by raising points at nail mark A*.
The back of the sheath consists of a piece of steel or the like slit longitudinally as at L to form spring blades to the number required to suit the number of blades and so on carried by the sheath.
The sheath may be made from any appropriate material, ornamented or not as desired and may have a rule M marked thereon if desired.
1. The combination of a knife sheath with a double bow scissors comprising Shanks to the scissors, a xed bow carried by one shank, a pivot carried by the sheath, the other shank being connected to the sheath by said pivot, a pivotal 7e bow mounted on said pivot, and means for bringing the pivoted bow into working or closed position by the movement of the xed bow.
2. The combination of a knife sheath with a pair of double bow scissors comprising Shanks to the scissors, a fixed bow carried by one shank,
a pivot carried by the sheath the other shank being connected to the sheath by said pivot, a pivotal bow mounted on said pivot, and a stud carried by the pivotal shank, said stud being adapted to bear against the pivotal bow so as to bring the same automatically into open or closed position.
3. The combination of a knife sheath with a pair of double bow scissors comprising a slotted back to the sheath, Shanks to the scissors, a xed bow carried by one shank, a pivot carried by the f sheath, the other shank being connected to the sheath by said pivot, a pivotal bow mounted on said pivot, and a stud carried by said pivotal shank, said stud being adapted to bear against the pivotal bow to bring the same automatically into open or closed position.
