Simple kids silicon wrist band will improve your grip dramatically..
So more broken alum!

I wrap a rubber band around it, transversally not to the sides though. Works well enough for me.

OP - good idea, however it does have an inherent limitation. The rubber-band may allow for more complete usage.

A rubber band is a good idea. You can also use the sticks.

I have a block of Gentleman Jon alum.  Well, what's left of it after using it for something like 3 years.  There is still a fair amount of material left but I've never put anything on it to enhance the grip.  Then I read this thread.  What happens during today's shave?  I drop the alum on the floor.  A chip came off but it is miraculously intact.  I'm going to take a rubber band and put it around for better grip.  Once this one is gone, I have a block of Osma in waiting.  Could be waiting until 2020.
