To any of the 39 others who bought this, please see this comment below https://drop.com/buy/hapstone-m2-knife-sharpener/talk/2504130 Need input to determine if I got one packaging mistake, or if we all got screwed by another incorrect product description

Unit just arrived, I'm not thrilled 😫 This version does not have the bearing pivot as stated in the overview description, and i didn't receive the diamond stones i ordered with it (though the receipt verifies it was supposed to include them) Dear Drop support.... *sigh*

Well, Drop support gave me the generic response of refunding the $50 for the stones they left out, or doing a return, and ignored the comments about falsely advertising that this came with the bearing pivot. When asked to escalate the ticket they just stopped responding... That was 5 days ago. I got ahold of someone at Drop today and they only want to do a full refund/return now...nevermind the fact that it will cost me $75 more to buy this elsewhere. Whatever happened to sellers taking responsibility and doing the work to make things right with their customers? What was advertised isn't what was sold, there's conflicting information between the product description and the specs (though not in a way that was obviously conflicting until after I saw the product in hand and researched why it didn't match what I read here) And they won't reach out to the supplier to hold them responsible and get me the missing parts....how the hell do you run a business where you're the middle man, but you don't resolve issues between the first and third parties? That's 90% of your job responsibilities when that's your business model! Did ANYONE here get the ball bearing pivot system that was listed in the product description? 40 people bought this, please speak up and share what you got? It's the only way to show Drop that they screwed up this listing, by listing this as revision 1 in the specs but describing revision 2, vs just one person getting a mislabeled order @Gritomatic Were you the direct supplier for these? I ask since you were commenting here, and these drop shipped from right near your location...seems too coincidental to be anything else Perhaps you'd be able to assist? If not it's going back, and I won't be re-purchasing at a higher price

I was so excited, got an update with tracking info on this WAY earlier than the projected ship date, on my birthday even! ....that was Monday. Today is Friday and it just finally updated to say it made it to the shipping company Was also surprised and happy to see a UPS tracking number instead of FedEx SmartPost! But, nope...guess UPS also has a slow-as-shit shipping option that estimates a full 7 days days from GA to NY. Such a tease 😒😔

It's a custom from Ukraine. Email Hapstone if you need info about the manufacturer.

Is there any way to lock the blade down or is it sitting freely? I’m worried that it will come off easily and take the chance at me scuffing or knicking the blade, or worse if the blade could be bumped and unsettled from its flat position. I’ve heard about a KME that doesn’t have good grip, therefore making it dangerous to work on and I’ve never used a clamp system like this before but want to get one to see if I’m just missing on anything here or can use it for things that my stones or rods can’t. Has anyone had a good experience with this model? At this price I’m tempted because this isn’t a huge commitment if I don’t like it. Thanks again!

Haven't used it myself, but the YouTube reviews showed people using it without holding the knife handle and looked as though it was holding okay with the magnets Might be worth watching a couple of those vids if no one with personal experience chimes in

Been looking to try a guided system for a while, this looks like it might be a reasonable enough price range to give it a shot. @jhonis Lots of us can freehand, but if I had a bunch to do at once, my wrists and fingers would appreciate this a bit more, I think. And I'd rather take this to go sharpen up a friend's kitchen knives than lug around all my whet stones, soaking bucket, sink bridge, paddle strop, etc, etc. All that aside....it looks like this should take about 20 seconds to set up for each blade once you get used to it, soooo...no, you can't lol Anyway, even with the diamond "stones" in this kit, it's only the price of 2-3 DMT plates. For $4-500 for a WE System, i'd agree, i'd pass. At $200 with diamond stones included, i think it could serve a purpose If nothing else, it will reduce wear and dishing on my good stones, keeping them dedicated to my good kitchen knives and straight razors. (the diamond plates only get used for major repairs on knives, otherwise they're relegated to planes and chisels)

It doesn't take too much time or really any pressure to speak of as long as you're using the right grits.

I will keep that in mind, and will start slow But then, one always should with new abrasives 😉

By the time the user has this contraption configured properly to begin sharpening the desired angle, I'd have already profiled both sides with a course dmt bench stone freehand.

And there it is. It was no secret before who you were talking about, but sure, go ahead and insult me directly again and say I'M the problem 🙄 Should I not respond when people are mucking up other threads I'm involved in, just to drag my name through the mud by spewing outright lies with no provocation? Btw, to appease your curiosities: No, no one from Drop has ever contacted me about any misconduct, I don't lash out at people unprovoked. You, however, are the one who's recently had aggressively insulting posts removed by Drop staff. And i only have the 1 account, that's all I need, thanks.

That's awesome! And for what it's worth, I'm not saying freehand sharpening isn't a skill worth picking up. It absolutely is. I was just saying that guided systems have less of a learning curve which is preferred by some people.

What is the usability difference between Silicon Carbide and Diamond stones?

Diamond stones last longer and get the job done much faster than what's basically sandpaper in rock form.

I'd disagree somewhat with that statement. I do lapidary work. Blade steel has a Mohs mineral hardness of about 5.5. Hardened tool steel runs about 7-8. Silicon carbide is not "basically sandpaper in rock form". It is what we use for lapidary stone polishing and it will cut steel all day long. It is used to polish tungsten and it will do this job just fine. When you use diamond tools, you have to be careful of the method that is used to bond everything together. Diamonds have to be mixed into a matrix material and that matrix needs to be bonded to the sharpening tool. Diamond tools stop working if perfectly good crystals are pulled out of the matrix or the matrix wears off the tool. I have owned a couple pocket sharpeners that gave up in a surprisingly short time.

The description says this is revision one, so no ball bearing pivot.

If you upgrade do you get all the stones or just the set you upgraded to?

Basic stones are included in all bundles (it's "silent" feature). If you order diamond bundle, you get 3 dual-side diamonds + 3 SiC basic stones.

Any chance I could purchase only the diamond stones themselves for $50? I received the m2 as a father’s day gift and would love to add a set of diamond stones.
