    Gentlemen-
    To those that have this razor, could you please answer two questions:

    -How is the overall weight? Being aluminum, my concern would be that it is too light for me - I like heavier DEs.

    -From the pictures it appears that there is no knurling on the handle - any problems with slippage?

    Thanks alot - hope you guys continue to enjoy this razor.

    I think you will be very impressed with how it shaves. It's become one of my favorite razors. Let us know what you think.

    Thank you, Jerry. I will. One reason I ordered the razor was on your recommendation. I am sure I will be impressed with the razor, as you say. I should have it in the next day or so.

    Guys, I'm on my 4/5 Head shave with the "Standard Razor" using a Personna blade, feels like velvet - and I think I noted before that it's a very noisy razor.
    Light weight, handles very well, but if you get a little to cocky it'll still bite you, but just a little. I'll chalk that up to the light weight of the razor, I start zipping around my head and forget it's still a DE not a Cartridge

    Gentlemen,
    I shaved with mine today. The light weight was no problem, and when wet, the razor provided a good grip. This is a superb razor, but I find it a wee bit aggressive for me. I put it up for sale on another site. Perhaps someone else would enjoy more than I.

    Obie, No why! That's to bad. Maybe give it a couple Shaves. Still waiting for mine. Shipped out Wednesday. How long did you wait for yours?
