Hi,I'm new to DE shaving never tried straight razor shaving
After watching tons of shaving videos on YouTube, some of them using straight razors, I was kinda curious how is it to shave with a straight
I found this for $5 at a flea market and I thought I will buy it, send it to be honed by somebody and then have a go with it
If anyone can tell me anything about this razor and also if you can recommend someone that does honing
There's some markings on the blade

Looks to be is pretty good shape.  What part of the country are you in?  We have several members that provide excellent honing services.

I live in Chicago
The blade does look pretty good.
There is one or two really small spots on it, of rust I think

looks like it could just be waterspots. can take out very easily with some polishing. 

as for the company info, this is what i got from another website. 
 The Henkel Co.*, Fremont O. This firm was founded in 1906. In 1919, Henkle(Henkel) purchased the Clauss Shear Company, and merged the two firms forming Henkel-Clauss. They are still in business.
