SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent NO. 661,694, dated November 13, 1900.

Application filed September 14:, 1900. Serial No. 29,987. (No model.)

To (ZZZ whom it may aoneern:

Be it known that I, JOHN H. HEMMERDINGER, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of New York, (Brooklyn,) county of Kings, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Razor- Strops, of which the following is a specification.

This invent-ion relates to a razor-strop provided with a swivel-clutch of novel construction, by means of which it may be readily suspended from supports of different forms and dimensions.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation, partly cut away, of my improved razor-strop, showing the clutch entirely closed. Fig. 2 is a side View of the upper part of the strop, showing the clutch partly closed. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section through the upper part of the strop; Fig. 4, a plan of the clutch with the tongs removed, and Fig. 5 a plan of the tongs.

The letters a b represent the two sections of a duplex razor-strop, composed, respectively, of leather and webbing and provided at their lower ends with the usual handle a. At its upper end the strop embraces one bar of a frame d, to which is swiveled by pivot e a ring f, having at its upper side an elongated opening f, Fig. 4. Into this opening project the lower crossed or diverging ends g of a pair of tongs g, pivotally connected at 9 so that the tongs are locked to the ring, but are free to open and close. The tongs g have reduced upper ends 9 Fig. 5, which are adapted to overlap and which are provided with downwardly-projectiug spurs or jaws 9 In use the tongs may be made to close entirely around an object-such as a post, nail, ring, &c.when they will assume the position indicated in Fig. l, or they may be made to grasp a flat or other object A, introduced between them, Fig. 2, and to which they will become attached by means of their jaws 9 Thus it will be seen that the strop can be suspended froin objects of different forms and configurations and that when so suspended it is always free to be turned on its swivel.

What I claim is- A razor-strop provided with a frame, a slotred ring swiveled thereto, a pair of pivoted tongs having diverging lower ends that enter said slot, and jaws at their upper ends, substantially as specified.

Signed by me at New York city, county and State of New York, this 13th day of September, 1900.
