Thos beautifully designed and stable tool holders makes the most its weight and is water-resistant being made of the brass material. Having a low center of gravity, it won't fall even when lots of tall tools like ladles, cutlery, chopsticks, etc. are placed within it.
The inner surface is lined with tin. The bottom part is lined with silicone so that it won't damage the surface on which the tool holder is placed. Also it can be used as a flower vase or a pen holder.
