RAZOR Filed Feb. 21, 1935 INVEN TOR. .lzzgcaa /J in y! a/rai' ATTORNEYS.

Patented New. 5, 1935 UNITED ,STATES" PATENT I OFFICE August I. nngfi ifevmenee, a. 1. Application February 21, 1935, Serial No. 1,539 1': Claims. (01. 30-30) This invention relates to a shaving equipment; and has for one of its objects the provision of a complete shaving unit. for limited use, consisting not only of the razor but also of sufficient shaving cream for at least one shave.

' Another object of the invention is the provi- F sion of a razor constructed in a very inexpensive manner so that the same may be cheaply sold and discarded after a single use and having sufilcie'nt shaving cream available in the handle thereof for a single shave.

Another object or the invention is the pro-- vision of a shaving unit the construction of p which will be such that it will be very efilclent in use and yet one which may be dispensed in an automatic vending machine at a price suffl ciently low so that after a single use the same may be discarded in the same manner as a paper drinking cup.

Another object of the invention is to form the blade holding portion and the shaving paste hold-' ing portion all in a single piece, pressed and cut out so that these portions. will perform the desired functions.

Another object of the invention is the hold-- ing of the blade in place by a simple and yet eflective construction by the deflecting'of the Fig. 1 is a plan view looking ,at one side of the unit; Fig. 2 is a side elevation thereof;

- Fig. 3 is a central sectionon line 3-3 of Fig urel; I

Fig. 4 is a plan view of the blank which is formed with the deflected portions therein;

Fig. 5 is a sectional view on line 55 of Figure 4;

Fig. 6 is a similar section alsothrough a blade mounted in position;

' Fig. 7 is a sectional view through the handle at the location designated 1-1 of Figure 4;

Fig. 8 is a sectional view on line 8-8 of Fig- 1 1 3. T

Fig. 9 is a perspective view of the unit with a cover' partly detached, :which cover seals the shaving paste in the handle;

Fig. 10 is a perspective view of the unit showing the first finger of the hand as in a position 5 about to remove the cream for use.

easily forgotten by one traveling; and in order to fill a want such as indicated above, I have provided a very cheap razor which may be sold by means of an automatic vending machine; and

. I have equipped the razor with a sufficient quantity of paste or shaving cream for a single shave, the entire unit being so designed that it may be sold at a price so cheap that the razor may be discarded after it is once used, a blade being permanently mounted therein and not intended for removal for drying; and I have accomplished these results by forming this holder for the blade and the cream out of paper or some compressible material which can be stiffened by suitable treatment and preserved by waxing or the like; and the following is a more detailed description of the present embodiment of this invention, illustrating the preferred means by which these advantageous results may be accomplished:

With reference to the drawing, I have shown in Figure 4 a sheet of material of the general outline or configuration which I blank out from some heavy paper. This blank is then pressed in dies to deflect it into a trough-shaped handle i5 with-edge flanges as at H and ribs I 6 which are cut out at their ends to form fingers Ill. The marginal edges are also raised and extended to provide the fingers ii! at a projection beyond the end of the blade holder portion 23 of the blank at the edges thereof. 'This blade holder portion is bent-at an acute angle along line. 35, as shown in Figure 2, prior to hardening so thatthe ribs extending across this bend stiffen the bend materially. v I

The trough-shaped handle is of a conflguration as'illustrated at 20 in Figure'i, with generally diverging side walls 2| from a base 22 along a portion adjacent the blade holder part 23, while the end portion of the handle is half round as at 24 with its bottom wall extending upwardly at 25 at the end thereof. The flange I! is carried 5 inwardly and downwardly as at a between the portions which change shape so that when the.

shaving paste orcream ll is positioned in the handle. along the semi-cylindrical portion, a transparent cover of Cellophane" or some such substance designated ll may be laid over the top of the paste it, to engage the fiang'e i1 and extend downwardly along the incline I to the fiat A surface 22 at the bottom of the trough. The .shapingof this portion 24 of the trough which holds the paste is such that a. finger ofthe user's hand designated 32 in Figure 10,. may convenicome stifi when cold. and the trough-shaped for-.

outwardly away from the base portion 23 so as to.

receive and grip the blade and the fingers it which extend along the same surface of the blade as do the fingers l8 and are also bent as at 40 before they become set about the cutting edge 4| thereof. These fingers II also serve as a guard to prevent the corners of the blade from digging into the flesh of the user. In this manner, the

blade is secured in place when the holder finally cools or sets in position, thus firmly securing the blade without use of adhesive or staples or'other separate devices.

a tab 4: on the end of the cover extends ps2.

yond the end of the handle, as shown in Figure 1, for convenient access to be grasped by the fingers and pull the cover from its position, leaving a complete exposure of the paste andeasy access thereto for use. This cover is sealed in position by parafiine wax along itsperipheral edges, and in fact the entire device is dipped in paraifine wax so as to repel moisture maintaining the entirestructure stiff and in the form it is desired the same shall remain for its most effective usefulness. The dipping into paramne wax also serves to preserve the blade against rust, and the same is easily melted or washed off by hot water when it is desired to use the razor.

Further, the structure is made of paper and is combustible except for the metal blade which being relatively small permits the entire structure to be safely deposited in the waste paper basket for disposal. K

The foregoing description is directed solely towards the construction illustrated, but I desire it to be understood that I reserve the privilege of resorting to all the mechanical changes to which the device is susceptible, the inventionbeing defined and limited only by the terms of the appended claims.

I claim:
