sharpstone v2 grinders review

Sharpstone V2 Grinder Review

The first Sharpstone Grinder we will review is called the V2, aptly named as the second generation of their original 4-piece grinder.

This product is best for someone who is looking for an affordable grinder that is made in the USA, and is extremely durable and effective.


Here is a brief overview of the V2’s features:

  • 2.1” Diameter
  • 2” Tall
  • 4-Piece Grinder
  • Anodized Aluminum
  • Diamond Shaped Blades
  • Scraper Tool Included
  • Magnetic Lid

Overall, it has a pretty standard design but is still very solid. Made from some of the strongest aluminum on the market, and designed with ergonomic grip for ease of use.


As far as performance goes, the V2 is definitely above average. Due to its 46 razor sharp teeth, and its very well designed Kief catch, this grinder not only grinds herbs well, but also collects pollen very effectively as well.

Overall, in terms of performance, we give the Sharpstone V2 Grinder an 8.9 / 10. It is certainly a high performing grinder at a great price, but does not have many characteristics or features that makes it stand out from the competition.

What We Like About the V2

Our favorite part about the V2 is the price point. It is one of the cheapest herb grinders made in the USA that you will find that actually still has very high performance.

We also really love the fact that it includes a magnetic lid and scraper tool, though these have both become standard at this point.

One last thing that we really like about the Sharpstone V2 is that it has a scratch-proof finish on the outside, which adds to its durability, and protects your grinder from harm.

Overall Grade: B+

Overall, the V2 is a solid grinder. It’s strong points are:

  • Great Customer Reviews
  • Low Price
  • Made in the USA
  • Strong Screen
  • Scratch Proof Finish
  • Sharp Teeth
  • Great Kief Catch

We simply love this grinder for its simple, yet effective design and how affordable it is. Lastly, it comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, which is very helpful for first-time buyers. If you are looking for your first grinder, you should read this buyer’s guide.

sharpstone hand crank grinder review

Sharpstone Hand Crank Grinder Review

Hand crank grinders are a different way to grind your herbs. Some people like them more because they tend to last longer than traditional grinders, and also tend to clog less over time.

Others prefer traditional grinders because the design feels better in pockets and fits in cases easier.


These grinders include the following features:

  • Aircraft Grade Aluminum
  • Stainless Steel Hand Crank
  • 2.5” Diameter
  • 39 Razor Sharp Teeth
  • Kief Catch
  • 4-Piece Grinder
  • Magnetic Lid
  • Poly Ring on Top Section
  • Protective Pouch
  • Pollen Scraper Tool Included

This bad boy comes strapped with everything you will need in order to get the most out of it. The carrying case and pollen scraper are great little things to have around that make your life easier.

Also, having the protective poly ring around the top section is very important, because this prevents metal on metal scraping which can damage your grinder over time, break the seal, and also lead to pesky resin build up.


As far as performance goes, this might be one of the best crank top grinders that we have ever reviewed. The reason we like it so much are that it grinds bud very efficiently, and it is extremely durable.

A lot of the time, crank tops have a tendency to break if overloaded with flower, but this thing tears through even the stickiest of herbs like they are nothing thanks to its amazing teeth design.

Lastly, we love the pollen catch in this bad boy. Not only does it have a lot of room to pile those crystals up, but it also has a rather large main chamber for herbs, which is a great feature.

What We Like About Sharpstone Hand Crank Grinders

My favorite part about the Sharpstone Hand Crank is probably the teeth. We already mentioned those earlier, so no need to go in more depth about them. Another thing I really like about this grinder is how beautiful it looks. The light blue color is something you don’t often see on grinders, and thanks to their shiny anodized finish, it looks very shiny and brand new all the time.

The last thing I really like about this grinder is the size. Most hand cranks are large, bulky, and annoying to use. But this one is compact, and barely takes up more room than the V2 in your hand or in a pocket. The carrying case also makes it easy to keep it concealed.

Overall Grade: A

Overall, we have to give this product an A rating, as it is one of the nicer hand crank grinders we have ever reviewed. Our favorite features about this grinder are:

  • Beautiful Coloration
  • Lots of Sharp Teeth
  • Huge Chamber
  • Large Kief Catch
  • Sturdy Design
  • Perfect Size
  • Extremely Durable
  • Affordable Price

At the end of the day, hand cranks may not be for you. But, if they are your grinder of choice, you should absolutely consider a Sharp Stone Hand Crank Grinder because of its ease of use, extremely high quality, and very reasonable price point.

sharpstone vibrating grinder review

Sharpstone Vibrating Grinder Review

This is one of the more interesting grinders we have come across. Honestly, prior to reviewing this product, we had only heard of them but never used one. We were pleasantly surprised by its performance, design, and price point.


Overall, the design of this grinder is pretty similar to traditional 4-piece grinders, minus one key characteristic: a vibrating section! Yep, that’s right, this thing legitimately vibrates. This function is powered by a small battery pack below the Kief catch.

Other features include:

  • Lithium Ion Battery
  • 25 Razor Sharp Teeth
  • Poly Ring Around Top Section
  • Anodized Finish
  • Carrying Case Included
  • Pollen Scraper Included

The battery pack and vibration setting are meant to help with Kief collection, slowly forcing all of the finer pollen particles to the bottom section of the grinder. And boy does it work!

Aside from this feature, the rest of the grinder is very well made. The outer shell is extremely durable and scratch proof, keeping it safe and secure for a very long time.


I knew it would definitely help collect more Kief, but I had no idea that I would nearly double my production in just under a week. I swear, no grinder I have ever owned has produced this much Kief, and I have easily owned 25+ different grinder brands.

All you need to do is simply turn it on using the small silver button at the bottom, leave it on for 15 minutes or so, and come back to a massive pile of pollen!

Just like the other Sharpstone Grinders on this list, the teeth on this grinder are unbelievably effective. On top of that, the Kief catch and herb chamber are also large.

how to clean your grinder

What We Like About Sharpstone Vibrating Grinders

Let’s get this out of the way first: MORE KIEF. I don’t know a single Stoner who wants less of these beautiful crystals. And this grinder is the absolute best grinder for Kief I have ever used in over 10+ years as a smoker.

The next thing we really like about this grinder is the price point. At just $35, you spend less on a grinder that vibrates than you can on some regular old 4-piece grinders on the market.

Lastly, the performance of this grinder is a huge factor for why we like it so much. Not only does it feature the vibration, but it also functions very well on its own as a grinder, which is nice because there is nothing worse than buying a product because of one feature you like, while the rest of it sucks.

Overall Grade: A+

Overall, we have to give this Sharpstone Vibrating Grinder an A+ review because of its:

  • Awesome Design
  • Kief Production
  • Affordable Price
  • Solid Teeth
  • Durability
  • Performance

There are not too many grinders on the market that can do what this one does. And even the ones that can compete with it in terms of performance can hardly do so in terms of price.  

sharpstone 5 piece grinder review

Sharpstone 5-Piece Grinder Review

The only thing cooler than a vibrating grinder is a 5-piece grinder. With an extra layer for better pollen filtration and collection, this bad boy is yet another superior grinder for Kief collection.


The extra chamber is kept right in between the Kief catch and the main chamber. It features a larger screen, allowing for larger pollen particles to trickle down, trapping them there. Once here, they can be ground into even finer particles by adding a dime, and will then be filtered into the bottom chamber. This improves Kief production quite a bit.

Other features include:

  • 2.2” Diameter
  • 3” Tall
  • Poly Ring Around Top Section
  • 25 Razor Sharp Teeth
  • Anodized Finish


As far as performance goes, the Sharpstone 5-Piece Grinder will outperform just about any other grinder in its class.

The teeth are razor sharp, the screens are tough and durable, the Kief catches are large and well designed, and the size is perfect, hardly noticing the extra chamber.

On top of all this, perhaps our favorite part of this grinder is the fact that it has a very impressive seal, that is completely airtight. The Poly ring on the top allows for less friction and metal on metal contact, prolonging the lifespan of this grinder, and reducing resin build up.


What We Like About Sharpstone 5-Piece Grinders

Perhaps our favorite part about 5-Piece Grinders from Sharpstone is that they are so damn affordable. At just $40, it is hard to find a grinder that performs better and has a cheaper price point, that is still made in the United States.

These grinders also have superior performance as we mentioned earlier. The added Kief production makes a serious difference over the course of just a few weeks for serious Stoners.

Lastly, these 5-piece grinders are very durable, just like the rest of Sharpstone’s products. The outer shell helps to reduce damage and keep it brand new looking. The teeth are also very well machined and do not clog often.

Overall Grade: A

Overall, this grinder is a very solid investment. There may be a few options that are slightly cheaper, but at the end of the day, this piece is a great combination of performance and price. We gave it a grade of A mainly because of its:

  • Affordable Price
  • High Quality
  • Durability
  • Kief Production
  • Perfect Size
  • Sleek Design

We absolutely recommend this grinder to any Stoner looking for a great way to improve their pollen collection. Also for anyone looking for a high-performance herb grinder that will stand the test of time. Besides, with their 30-day money back guarantee, there is really no risk on your part if you try it and want to return it.

Pros & Cons of Sharpstone Grinders

Let’s quickly compare some of the advantages and disadvantages of Sharpstone Grinders as a whole:

Affordable Prices Not the Cheapest
Solid Quality Not a Ton of Color Options
Wide Variety of Products
Money Back Guarantee
Scratch Proof Finish
Military Grade Aluminum

We really should have just called this the pros section, as it is difficult to find anything wrong with a lot of their products. Even their products that did not make this list are still top of the line when compared with a vast majority of herb grinders out there.

sharpstone grinders ultimate review

Sharpstone Grinder Review – Overall Grade: A-

Overall, we give Sharpstone Grinders an overall grade of A-. They have a wide range of products that all perform exceptionally well, and also have very reasonable prices.

There are a few grinder companies out there who have more competitive price ranges, and who also offer more design options when it comes to colors and customization. This is one area where they fall short, but it is not enough to taint their excellent products.

We would recommend these grinders to anyone, mainly because of their:

  • Longevity
  • Durability
  • Performance
  • Size
  • Price Range
  • Guarantee Policy

At the end of the day, we have never met anyone who had something bad to say about this grinder brand. They are dependable and committed to bringing the best performance to market with each product.
