I bought this brush on recommendation to replace my trusty 20 year old model which finally disappeared to almost nothing. My new brush is hopeless. It shed its bristles immediately and has continued to do so. After every shave I have to remove bristles from the sink drain and, in passing, incur my wife's wrath. After only a couple of months it is half its original girth and is about to go in the bin. It's far and away the worst brush I have ever bought and I feel a bit sore about it, especially as I have lost the receipt. I may have been unlucky with a one-off failure, but I'm not going to buy another.
