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.
