DESIGN FOR A KNIFE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 28,925, dated June 28, 1898. Application filed May 18,1898. Serial No. 681,085. Term of patent 3% years.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, EUGENE I). IECK, a citizen of the United States, residing at Bridge port, in the county of Fairfield and State of Connecticut, have invented and produced a new and original Design for a Knife; 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.
Referring to the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is an elevation of my newly-designed knife, and Fig. 2 a section at the line :1' of Fig. 1.
Similar numbers denote like parts in both figures of the drawings.
The essential features of my design are the continuous convex curve which bounds the frontedge of the blade from heel to point, the eonvexo-eoneavccurve which bounds the back edge of the blade, both of which edges gradually approach each other from the heel to the point of the blade, while the concave portion of said rear edge meets the convex curved front edge of the blade in a hookshaped point which extends backward from a line drawn from the center of the handle-butt longitudinally through the handle and blade.
A further essential feature of my design is the bevel of the blade on both sides from a convexly-eurved line extending about midway of the blade from point to heel, so that these bevels meet throughout both the front and back edges of the blade,whereby the latter when viewed in cross-section, as at Fig. 2, presents the general appearance of a diamond.
is the convexly-curved front edge of the knife.
2 3 are respectively the convex and concave portions of the back edge.
4 is the handle, and 5 is the hook-shaped point formed by the meeting of the convex edgel with the concave portion 3 and extending backward from a line 'i drawn from the center of thehandle-butt lengthwise through the handle and blade.
'7 is the convexly-curved line extending about midway of the blade from point to heel. S 9 are the beveled surfaces which extend from said line on opposite sides of the blade and meet to form the rear edge of the latter, and 10 11 are the beveled surfaces which extend from said line on opposite sides of the blade and meet to form the front edge thereof.
I claim- The design for a knife, substantially as shown in the accompanying drawings.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
EUGENE li. IEUK.
