This is only the second brush I've ever used. The first one came with my Merkur Vision Razor as part of a set. It lasted about two years before all the bristles fell out. I now believe this was due to cleaning it with water that was too hot. I bought this brush as a replacement. It is not as big as my first one. However, I think it builds a better lather. The bristles are fantastic! They feel just right and they hold water easily. I expect this brush to last a lot longer than the first one did now that I know how to take care of it.
