    I have been looking at straight razors for a bit and found this for $10 while mall hoping in the Mojave Desert/Victorville/Hesperia area.
    It is not exactly mint. The Larkin name is almost completely obscured by corrosion. The plus side to rust/corrosion is that it means carbon steel. It holds a much better edge than stainless steel. But it does rust when wet.
    I believe this is from Larkin made in Sheffield, England. One source says Larkin Soap but I am going with Larkin in Sheffield.
    Not sure on the date for this but will just say 1900-1950. It is just a guestimate.
    It is a bit over 9" long when fully opened.

      Pretty cool! Do you have a razor stop to sharpen it with?

      Cool razor, Fort. If you haven't already, will you be posting the other blades in pic #4? The folding pocket knife looks particularly interesting. [;>)
