Joe at the Italian Barber has started to import some brushes from Zenith re-branded under the RazoRock name. He's got some black handled ones and some ivory handled ones for a great price. The white handled one is the same as the large silvertip that I have for sale. Here is says about these Zenith brushes:

In my humble opinion, this is one of the best face lathering brushes, if not THE BEST, south of $150, in the market. There, I got that off my chest. This RazoRock Silvertip brush is extra stuffed and hand tied in Italy. The solid, build to last, resin handle is lathe turned by hand in Italy. I have been searching for over four years for a brush like this, I kid you not. There are a lot of superb face lathering brush in the market but most if not all in the Silvertip Badger category are selling for north of $150. You will probably look at the price of this brush and think it's too good to be true, that is why we laser etched the RazoRock logo into the bottom, because RazoRock is all about excellent quality at a price that's affordable. The knot diameter of this RazoRock Chubby is 28mm and the loft is 51mm. The brush tips are very soft but because of the 51mm loft and the fact it's extra stuffed it acts like a two band badger brush on the face. The brush weighs in at 84 grams on our postal heavy. If you face lather with Italian soft soaps (croaps), like I do, you will want to add this brush to your collection because it elevated the shaving experience to luxury heaven! I believe the price point of this brush also makes for the perfect affordable luxury man gift; they won't stop thanking you if you give them this brush.
