Juha, that's really strange. Kent makes very nice brushes; they're more on the high end. What's weird is that it looks like your brush hairs are breaking; they should be a smoother, more uniform length around the shape. I'm guessing you're a face (rather than a bowl) latherer? Do you lather with circular strokes? That could be the problem. Either that, or too much pressure.
Indeed, was quite surprising to me as well. I usually lather in a bowl, but then do tend to continue lathering on face in circular motion. So mixed martial arts for me!
So it might be the combination of circular face lathering and my rough beard. My face is like a hedgehog after a day or so.. give it a week and it turns into porcupine!
Was thinking maybe I should try and pay more attention to softening the beard with hot water in advance. At least in theory that ought to help with it.
