According to what information I could find on this razor, L.M.Taylor was in business from 1905 to 1925 they were a Barber supply company. The model name "oh you kid" came up as being made by Struth & Clottu Co. from Chicago, Illinois and they were in business from 1921 to 1922. So I would place this straight razor being made about 1921-1922. This is a very unusual shaped straight razor. In fine print on the Tang is marked made in Germany.
