Good for knots smaller than 24mm and straight razors. I can��t use it, but it��s a good stand.
The short version of this review is: Dear Triton Chicago, please make a shorter version of this w/ a wider brush opening and a side opening for safey razors. The long version: So the steel work on this is great and thoughtful. The bottom of the base has rubber ���feet' for sturdiness, has nice weight to it, sleek design, and the edges are all beveled so there are no sharp steel corners pinching into your brush's fibers or scratching resin handles. For me however, I couldn't use it. I have 7 shaving brushes between 24 and 26mm knots and the measurements should have made this stand fit the 24mm knots - but they'll only fit if the entire handle sits on top of the stand and you pinch the knot into the opening, which I'm just not comfortable doing. The brush opening is 24mm, the diameter is about 28mm. The other thing, EVEN if my brushes could go on it, this is really designed for straight razors (the hole at the bottom is great for anchoring the strait razor tail and keep it from slipping. But it's not fore double edge safety razors. The hole for the razor is 30mm x 18mm but is a hole, it doesn't open to the side like other similar designs, which means you're picking up a safety razor with your fingers right by the blade (which is not safe). So for these reasons begrudgingly I cannot use this other wise real sexy piece of shaving accessory.
