    OK, I'll bite. I just bought one, even though I generally prefer heavy razors and the lack of knurling on the handle gives me pause. Will let you know what I think.

    I have two long-comb NEWs and find that they work better with heavier handles. But I still don't find them as effective as my Fatips or my ATT Kronos H2.

    My box of 100 Labs includes a dozen or so blades with just arrows, no text, wrapped in white paper. I think these are Barbers, not Labs, and while they're not bad, they're not Lab quality.
