Has anyone else had this problem? I bought a Shavemac 163 from vintagebladesllc for 40% off about 1.5 months ago and it has been shedding since day one. It usually looses between 5-10 hairs per shave, but the last 2 out of 3 shaves have been really bad. I am talking over 20 hairs. I was really worried the whole knot would just fall out or something.
Obviously this brush is faulty...I mean if I have lost over 80 hairs in the last month, then this thing has a defect, right? I have only used the brush approximate 20 times. At this rate the 26mm knot will be very thin in a few months time.
I emailed vintageblades describing the problem. Hopefully I can get a replacement or have the handle re-knotted.
