weeg @s faire' attlt WILLIAM 4I-IADDON 'MARRIQT'IL OF BALTIMORE, MARYLAND. Letters Patent No. 86,769, (lated February 9, 1869.

IIVEPROVEMENT IN NEEDLES.

The Schedule referred to in these Letters Patent and making part of the same.

To all whom @t may concern Be it known that I, WILLIAM HADDON MARRIOTT,

of Baltimore, in the county of Baltimore, and State of Maryland, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Packing-Needles; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will enable others skilled in the art to make and use the same, lreference being-had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification.

` This 'invention relates to a new and useful improvement in needles for sewing canvas and other heavy and thick material, which needles are known as packingneedles 5 and The invention consists in forming a onttingeedge in the eye of the needle, for cutting the thread when desired, without resorting to a knife for that purpose, thus saving much time, and greatly facilitating the work.

In the accompanying plate of drawings- Figure l is a longitudinal sidev view of the needle, showing the curved end or blade.

Figure 2 is a longitudinal top view, -showing the eye, and the cutting-edge within the eye.

Figure 3 is across-section of the cutting-edge through the line a: :z: of g. 2.

Similar letters'of reference indicate corresponding parts.

My object in this invention is to provide a needle for sewing thick s'acking for packages, and for other purposes, with a knife or cutting-edge attached in such a manner as not to be in the way of the thread, and so as not to injure the hand of the person using the same. l

a represents the eye of the needle, and c is a slot tends the whole length of the eutting-edge d.

The edge of this knife al (or cutting-edge) is ush with the side of the needle, as seen in fig. 3, and the blade e oi" the needle is of the same width as the other, or eye-end, so that the passage of the needle through any material which admits of sewing cannot be obstructed.

The shoulder at the end ofthe cutting-blade prevents the thread from leavin-g the eye proper, when using the needle, and the form of the knil'e,'the edge being i'lush with the side, allows the edge to `be sharpcned by simply grinding or liling the side of the needle.

Needles thus constructed are of great use in sewing heavy canvas, or similar' material, when the thread is too large or strong to be readily broken when it is desired to part it, as it is always necessary to have a knife at hand for parting the thread.

By having a knife or cutting-edge in the eye of the needle, as represented, much valuable time is saved, and lunch trouble and annoyance in hunting for a knife are avoided. i

Having thus described my invention,

I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patentother purposes, the cutting-edge (l, arranged substantially as and for the purposes herein shown and described.

- WM. HADDON MARRIOTT.
