I wish I could exchange mine -

First, the bristles had an odor of a wet animal for about 3-4 weeks. Thankfully, the odor gradually dissipated from repeated use.
During that time, and for about a month longer, the bristles (which were always soft) did a good job distributing the shaving cream. I was pleased.
After about 2 months of daily use, the bristles were coming out of the handle. This was a pain as I'd find bristles all over my beard and underneath the shaving cream. I was not rough with this brush at all, and I am very disappointed that a product from The Art of Shaving performed this poorly.
If there's a way for me to exchange it for another one I would do it in case there was a problem with that production lot.
