What is the purpose of a metal stand that holds a single DE razor upright on a counter or other surface? Is it just for appearance, or is it somehow beneficial for the razor? I think some of the stands look pretty nice, but I think most razors look quite good just lying on their side.

Just a thought, John, but besides some of the round base type stands looking sharp, for someone who has quite a few razors, being able to stand them upright may take up less storage space, such as in a medicine cabinet in the bathroom.

Plenty of handles have flat ends and can stand up without a dedicated stand but the matching stand secures the razor and complements it from an artistic perspective. It’s purely for aesthetic purposes - it looks good and appears high end. When you are paying over $100 for a razor the matching stand sets it apart from the mass produced $30 razor. Your razor will dry and/or patina in any position. Now for rounded bottom handles you would need a stand to have it upright as it’s a function of geometry.

IMHO stands are cosmetic.
I like wild west razor stands. they are unique but resin

He doesn't make or sell them very often. But you might be able to custom order one.

For me, it's purely cosmetic. I only have one stand and although it fits my Rex very nicely, I'm more than happy displaying some of my favorite razors in an old 5-pipe stand.
