I've been on the lookout for a razor strand that will hold my Blackland Blackbird.  I initially reached out to Toby @ Triad razors, but Toby decided to go a different route with this side hobby/job and our vision was never realized.  No hard feelings!



In conversation with Aldo @ The Varlet regarding some of the brushes he produces he offhandedly mentioned that he sometimes has waste handles due to various mishaps in the hand turning process.  Aldo is a true one stop shop for brushes from hand tying knots to hand turning handles; all done in the UNITED STATES.  Another great American Manufacturer of shaving brushes and the only one I am aware of that also ties knots.  

YES HE TIES HIS OWN KNOTS!!!

At anyrate, I inquired if those 'waste' handles could be refashioned into razor stands and he agreed to take on my side project despite being backlogged in brush manufacturing.  The base and 'insides' are made of Alumilite resin and the wood is made of uberdense  Lignum Vitae. This is the real deal my friends!

Enjoy!

Please tell me this is not one of those I-will-do-this-once-but-don't-ask-me-to-do-it-again moments in life.  Those stands are too cool not to produce in volume.

to be honest, I don't think Aldo does anything in bulk......

This is an awesome razor stand. very nice to see Aldo enjoying himself with small projects like this. Hopefully when things get stable for him he'll start venturing into other things like this stand.
