Today's SOTD lineup marked the end of bottle #5 of my aftershave splash. Moved on to bottle 6 beginning tomorrow. It'll last 6 months.

Sunday AM 2018-07-08

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney 3/2 Ebony Finest (24/54)
Hemingway Accoutrements shaving cream
Charcoal Goods Brass Level 1/Triad Aristocrat Copper
Wilkinson Light Brigade (12)
Hemingway Accoutrements aftershave + balm

The cream made excellent lather, and the aftershave and balm were very soothing. The fragrance is subtle but complex and intoxicating. Overall I'm quite pleased with the products.

John, where would someone find the Hemingway line of shaving products?
Another question for you --- in the event your DE blade lasts longer than 12 shaves, do you have a dice-related way to show 13 and above? :)
