Tried the brass general again on a different handle and it was better, but still not as good as the aluminum version.  I really don't like the stock brass handle.

How is the grip on the aluminum handle?

Intersting... I just purchased and shaved with the black aluminum general and it was absolutely amazing. I had the brass and didn’t think much of it and returned it. I wonder if I should purchase the SS when restocked this month.

I was not happy with the grip with the stock aluminum handle. 
I switched to the handle from the RazoRock Baby smooth and it it was a much needed upgrade to this razor.
If the finish looked exactly the same I'd say the work is done, because with that handle, it is pretty much the perfect razor in my book.

I have to agree.  Rx is my first choice, but boy the MR SE is a really nice shaver!  Very close contest!

I don't have the handle.  I use it with a UFO Titan Fine L.  Sorry I couldn't answer the question.
