JULIUS EWALD, OF FAIRGHILD, WISCONSIN.
COMBINED PENVCIL AND PEN HOLDER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 637,103, dated November 14, 1899.
Application filed March 17, 189 9.
To all whom it may concern:
Beit known that I, JULIUS EWALD, a citizen of the United States, residing at Fairchild, in the county of Eau Claire and State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Combined Pencil and Pen Holder; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same. I
My invention relates to an improvement in a combined pencil and pen holder.
It has for its object primarily to combine with a pencil or a stick a means adapted to efiect the ready convertibility of the same into a pen, thus providing for writing in pencil orin ink; also, to permit of its being readily slipped over the edge of the pocket for greater convenience in carrying the same.
It consists of the detailed construction and combination of the parts, substantially as hereinafter more fully disclosed, and specifically pointed out in the claim.
In the accompanying drawings, illustrating the preferred embodiment of my invention, Figure 1 is a perspective view with pen in position and a pencil used as a handle. Fig. 2 is a detached perspective view of the holder or attachment. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section thereof.
It will be understood that latitude is allowed herein as to details, as they may be changed without departing from the spirit of my invention and the same yet remain intact and be protected.
In carrying out myinvention I provide a tubular clasp or socket 1, adapted to be slipped, say, upon the butt-end of a pencil or stick to serve as a handle or other convenient grasping means. The forward end portion of said clasp or socket is split or slitted segmentally, the slit passing longitudinally through opposite points thereof a suitable distance, producing or forming an integral sub clasp or Serial No. 709,516. (No model.)
clamp 2, suitably offset or raised at its inner end, as at 2 also at its outer or forward end, as at 2", and preferably slightly depressed intermediarily of said ends to permit the ready insertion and clasping or holding of the pen therein, as will be readily understood. Said tube or socket has formed or stamped up therewith at .its inner end an elongation or finger-piece 3, preferably offset therefrom, with its extreme inner end bent outward or laterally to permit its convenient insertion and slipping down over the edge of the pocket for greater convenience in carrying the pencil, &c. It will be observed that the outstanding or offset finger-piece of said socket or clasp can be further utilized to eject the pen by pressing with the finger endwise thereon,
thus dislodging the pen, the endwise movement of said socket or clasp removing the forward end thereof with the pen away from the pencil or stick. 'Also this offset or outstanding finger-piece serves as a stop against the tendency of the pencil to roll when placed on the desk and to fall to the floor or otherwise becoming displaced.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-- As a new article of manufacture, a com bined pencil-holder and pen-holder, consisting of a socket or tube, with a segment of its wall or shell severed from the major portion thereof a short distance in the direction of its JULIUS EWAIJD.
