My Grand Father used to use a souplex Razor Blade Holder.

he had a Farmstead & used the Blade Holder & Blade to Castrate Pigs, horrid I know but I still have the one my Grand Father used, I was present many a time & remember the event clearly.

Bit gory I know but I thought I would comment all the same.

Regards, Stewart.
