Let me guess. You a swine specialist? :lol:

Coulda, woulda, shoulda... after we had the farrowing shed built it turned out our operator was not a swine specialist at all. A 'crop farmer', not a 'stock farmer'. Lesson learned, long ago.

So the hog population on the place plummeted down to one or two raised up annually for the family freezers. I did not go down the livestock path. Corn and beans, send 'em straight to the co-op these days. Late harvest this year. The ham and pork hocks in my freezer are what is left of someone's 4-H project.
 
DecemBOAR 3, 2023

I experienced a shockingly rough yet efficient shave tonight. I am almost ashamed to admit that when cleaning the razor during post-shave, I did not realize there was already a blade in the razor. So tonight was a "Trac II" shave with a Feather Pro and Feather Super stacked.

Razor: Fatip Open Comb Il Piccolo Nickel Original
Blade: Gillette Silver Blue New (1)
Brush: Zenith 502BC Se Bleached Boar
Preshave: PAA The Cube
Soap: Razorock XXX
Aftershave: Old Spice Original, Hawkins and Brimble

My first time using the Zenith 502 BC Se and it was great! Lather hog, yes indeed! Did I break it in enough to where the tips were soft (maybe even a bit too much but I did presoak for a good amount of time) with very good backbone? Yes. It was quite enjoyable to use. Really enjoyed it, have not used boar in such a long time and am really happy with this brush.

This week's set up.

Unnamed boar trying to get to 3000+ shaves on it, Rigarazor (looks suspiciously similar to the one posted by @GNR above), Captain's Choice 45th Parallel cream. I should have just enough cream to see out the week, then I'll start on other partially used creams and soap.

4th of Decemboar
The little Omega 40033 travel size brush.
I have 4 boar brushes….3 Omegas and a Semogue in a drawer that is still in its box. Will get soaking it for a Decemboar trial run.
English silver flare tip and a Suneko blade today. Arko lather and Thayer’s splash.
D.R.Harris Windsor EDT to finish off.
Nice smooth shave.
These Suneko blades seem to be quite sharp….couple of weepers on the chin. Nothing serious….perhaps will mellow after a couple of shaves.

I'm late to the party (as usual), but I'm ready to rock!
