I occasionally get the question of which brush stand do I recommend. Since I don't actually use any, I can't really give an answer other than "the one that suits your fancy".

Do you guys have any recommendations for good quality stands?

Of course it all depends upon the buyer's preference for material and style, but just for dollar value, I don't think you can beat the high quality acrylic stands at Cutting Edge (http://www.cuttingedgerazors.com/). I've gotten several there, with my initials engraved, and I really like them a lot. Shane, the owner, will always work with you to make sure you get exactly what you want. For instance, he individually re-sized the holes on a double brush stand for me so that it would hold my largest old Manchurian brushes. And when an early model stand developed a couple cracks, he replaced it free of charge.

I agree with John on this one. While I haven't purchased from them as I decided I didn't want a stand I did look into their product carefully & I was quite impressed with their offerings.

These are very good and reasonably priced!

I have a triple razor stand from Cutting Edge. Shane is awesome, and he makes a quality product. I saw those on Razor Emporium as well and I'm torn between trying the ones offered on Razor Emporium, or going back to Shane where I know I'm gonna get a quality stand.

I remember when Shane quit making stands it was like the end of the world across the street. I swear the guy probably has orders for the rest of his life they're so popular.

For larger collections, I suggest a pipe rack. I have one that holds ten razors and amother with an open front that I use for razors with larger diameter handles.

I bought 6 stands in chrome from Shavemac and 2 from Kent, so I have all my brush sizes covered.

I usually only use a stand for my natural handles brushes, since I see no benefits to using a stand for a brush with a synthetic handle.
Simpson recommend that you dry their brush standing on their base.....

But for my horn and natural wood handled brushes, I do see a benefit of using a stand for the first 48-72 hours after the shave, then after that I just stand it on its base Smile
