After reading some information on RazoRock’s new brushes from Italy, I pulled the plug on one. I got the Chubby Extra Silvertip: 27.5mmx51mm. It is extra stuffed and hand tied in Italy. The handle is hand turned resin. I cleaned and bloomed it out to shave with this morning. This is a big knot and is a great face latherer. And, the price is right!

Nice! The black resin looks classy. I've been enjoying mine in rotation since it arrived. Mine's the ivory, short handle version. How does that barber style handle feel?

Too large bloom for such a thin handle IMHO

But RazoRock always have great prices, even though they are the copycat brand Numero Uno currently, I still respect what Joe and RR is doing.

The backbone is good for such a large bloomed knot.

I am guessing they are from Zenith?

"Zenith is a brand of shaving brushes made by Pennellificio Pandolfo in Palermo, Italy. Since 1902, this family run business has produced quality brushes not just for shaving needs,but also for paint, artists, and cosmetics. Their shaving brushes and knots are hand made by skilled artisans the old fashioned way. 

They have three lines of badger brushes, their Black Badger, Best Badger, and Silvertip."

Yes they are made by Zenith and Joe has them for a really great price.
