Send a PM to our fellow member "SLB04". He is a portuguese member that lives in germany, and he owns a similar brush (Da Vinci 293).

Thanks, Emanuel, I just might do that.
Found a review and its backbone and density seem to be much better than expected of a tall loft. Inching closer!

Edit: nevermind, I guess they're both "Uomo".
Keep an eye on Amazon. Right after Christmas they had the whole series of Da Vinci Uomos for $70-$80.

Purportedly, they make their own knots in house. Search for the video.
Logistically, they're a makeup brush company and the process is the same for both brushes. Wherever their makeup brushes are from is probably where the knot is made. Same with the handles.

They are making them in house. da Vinci brushes are made by a company named Defet, and that is Germany's biggest brush manufacturer. Shaving brushes is a very small segment they serve, they are making 80% of their business with high classed paint brushes (for artists, not for painting walls), the rest are cosmetic brushes and so on.
Located in Nuremberg, which is the center of brush manufacturers in Germany. Smaller companies like Thäter and shavemac are located near Nuremberg.
SPIEGEL Online had an article on brush manufacturing and Defet:
On Youtube is a video clip showing the production of shaving brushes.
