After hearing many positive reviews about the Weber I was hoping to pick up one of the "DLC" (black coated) versions. However, I was waiting for them to introduce it with a matching handle. As I recall, two or three months ago there was an indication that they would indeed offer the handle that way. Growing impatient, last week I reached out to Ed at Weber to see what was up. In a rather terse response to the question "Just as a quick follow up, should I understand this to mean that there are no plans to introduce a DLC coated handle in the future?" the one word answer was "Correct". This is disappointing as I understand they provide a very good shave but I really have no interest in buying the two-toned version. Oh well, some other vendor will enjoy my RAD dollars.
