I was hoping some of you fellows might have some suggestions on where to get a DE razor stand that is made in the U.S. or Europe that costs, say, under $30?  This stand would be for a wooden handle double edge razor from Creations by Will (great razors, by the way =)  ), so the handle is thicker than typical metal handle razors would be.  So a design that lets the razor handle hang down freely with no tubes or rings to sit in or fit through would probably be required. I have seen several such razor stands, but they all seem to be at least $50-$60+ and I'm not looking for anything that high-end at this time.  But I want it made in the U.S. or Europe and am willing to pay for that.  Something that won't rust, such as brass, stainless steel, or wood is fine, and even a heavily chrome plated steel would probably be ok.  Thanks very much for any recommendations, links, etc. on where to look. =)

Turtleship shaving has nice ones. They're more like pucks. They hold larger razors.

Do you know the diameter you need?

How about a pipe stand? You can find a variety of them for dirt cheap on EBAY.

bakerbarber: Thickness on the handle looks to be a bit less than 3/4 of an inch.

Phil:  A clever idea.  =)

The pipe stand seems like a good way to go. There's room for more than 1 razor.

As mentioned before, TurtleShip makes a great $20 razor stand in various colors.  Ideal fit for the bigger Wolfman Guerrilla handle. Website says razors is no larger than 5/8".

Charcoal Goods makes a nice Brass razor sand for $40.  Stand uses a removable brass insert and fits the CG Magnum larger handle.

The pipe stand that I use at home holds 10 razors.  They come in a variety of sizes.

Another stand can be made with a 2 x 2 piece of wood or larger depending on space and drill proper size holes and then sand and stain to your taste.

Bed Bath and Beyond sells a variety of toothbrush holders that double nicely as razor stands. They’re well within your price range.

Vapor stands (e cigarette) work well for razors.  I like my clear acrylic multi-"razor" stand.  
Test tube holders probably would work.

Numerous options and depends on # of razors and space.

Thanks for all the helpful suggestions. =)  I ended up going with a vapor stand (used for holding e-cigarettes for those who want to quit smoking, as SCOV mentioned) from VaporStands (link below), and it turns out they work perfectly for DE razors.  These are artisan made by American hands right here in the good ol USA and worth every penny.  The quality of the craftsmanship is excellent, they look and feel even better in person than the photos suggest, and they have a variety of sizes and styles to suit your need and taste.  And the prices are very reasonable.  I highly recommend checking them out.  =)

Matt, I have one similar to yours and it's served me well for a long time.  I think I picked it up on another BST.  Yours looks great!

Thanks, Billy! Would love to see a picture of your stand!

Yes, quite possibly the best!
Rockwell and BB might be equally as good as each other in terms of shave quality.
But add in the aesthetics of BB and it's the clear winner.
