If you can't offer legitimate deals because of MAP. Just don't offer the product. This "deal" is the definition of rip off. With shipping it's $86 when I can get the same thing on Amazon with free shipping for $68. I already own one of these SharpMaker and they are AWESOME! But I can assure I wouldn't have the same opinion if I had been ripped off like this. I love Massdrop, but come on. Figure it out guys.
+1 for offering without the tenacious.
-1 for the horrible description of the ultra fine... ”puts a fine scratch pattern on the blade edge"? That makes it sound like a negative. How about ”gives a mirror finish, scary sharp edge”?
One question... Do I read this drop correctly that you only get a single ultra fine stone? If so, wtf? You need too stones to use this sharpener effectively.
Even with the $20 credit youre not really beating MAP by much, and amazon sells them for ~$50 anyway.
I know you guys don’t want to go below MAP, but man... $50 sharpmaker from amazon +$15 UF stone plus 2 day shipping, or nearly $80 for both and wait a month...
I like massdrop, a lot... but I don’t get these kinds of drops.
This drop still isn't the best, but it's better than the drop that came with the Tenacious. If you don't already own one, pick one up. You literally can't fail at sharpening a knife with this. And the Ultra Fine stone can get your edge to a mirror polish, if you have the patience.
Just wanted to throw an endorsement in for this sharpener. It's great. I've always struggled a bit trying to get the right angle while sharpening, and this thing makes it super easy to do what you need to to have sharp blades.
I was looking forward to this drop but it's not going to happen at this price. Even without the fine stone and if it's free shipping, it's still $5 more than Amazon.
I believe that they are only selling you one ultra fine stone. That makes it unusable in the way the sharpmaker was intended to be used. People will be upset when they realize this. There are some good deals on this site but this isn't one.

Also, if it's really just one ultrafine, they're charging 2x the price on Amazon for the stone. They're only $15 on Amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/Spyderco-Tri-Angle-Stone-Ultra-Fine/dp/B0019JTNDQ/
$68 on amazon with the ultra fine stone ($53 without) and free shipping

Thanks
Sorry, $33 shipping is a deal breaker.
Sharpmaker is an incredible tool... especially if you have the ultra-fine ($15)and course diamond ($50) triangles. Starting with the diamond and working all the way to the ultra-fine (4 steps), I can reshape a blade and bring it to a ultra-scary sharpness... repeatably and with little to no skill needed.
Tenacious knife... don't have one, don't want one, can't speak to it. I'm sure there is a reason MD is pairing a knife into the drop, but the masses would be better served with the sharpmaker and add-ons for the extra triangles. For what would be a $100 total, it is the best sharpening system I have ever come across.

No Tenacious in this drop. Weird re-use, Massdrop.
$33 shipping to the UK and forced to include a knife I don't want? That's a great marketing ploy.

...plus whatever Customs will want... plus their ludicrous £8 'holding fee'.
I would like be to see some stropping/polishing compound drop.

How does this compare to using a series of KING whetstones or a combination one? I know nothing about knife sharpening.

Thanks!
fwiw, you can get course diamond rods for around $50. I use these all the time on friends dead knives that need a new edge created
$23.50 to Canada. Add currency conversion, customs, and tax? I'm out.
A discount on just the sharpmaker would have been nice... Not everyone wants or needs a Tenacious. It's just unnecessary money added on.

Not just the Sharpmaker, but other products too. I'm assuming that your Blue Boxes are one of the creative ideas too. And those are honestly pretty awesome.

Papa, unless you live in Europe when you get hit for the full MRSP on any 'free' upgrade. Strange thing is when my S110V PM2 arrived it showed the price I'd maid for it, not the supposed MRSP. Ho hum, just another massflop screw-up, I suppose.
I have waited so long for this, aaaaand $32 to ship...... so I wont be in for this sadly.
33 $ to ship in Europe ! I find the responsible of this deal has a lot of humor...
Would have been nice to see this about a week earlier because I just ordered one and it will be delivered tomorrow probably.
I came to give a testimonial that the sharpmaker is indeed a great sharpening system. It is slightly limited due to only 2 angles. I would have bough another one if This was the sharpmaker and the extra stones but still for someone getting this package, its a good knife for a tool and you can keep it in great shape.

FYI, Spyderco sells Ultra-fine ($15) and course diamond ($50) triangles... readily available on Amazon. Use the diamond to reshape the edge and then work down to ultra-fine for a mirror/scary sharp edge.
Big Spyderco fan here; there's your grain of salt.
This is is a solid deal for two very nice Spyderco products. I'm probably gonna pick up one or two as gifts.
The Sharpmaker is very simple and safe to use. It gives you two angles fo choose from. All you have to do is hold the blade consistently at vertical which is fairly intuitive. I can sharpen blades using this system to swipe cut (not tear) hanging toilet paper. I do wish Spyderco included an option here for adding their diamond coated steel (faster reprofiling) and ultra fine ceramic (edge polishing) rods. They really complete the system and the option to get these at a discount with purchase here would have been sweeter.
The Tenacious is a sturdy Chinese made folder that compares favorably with knives with twice as high a street price in terms of materials, fit and finish and performance.
Finally the Sharpmaker! Too bad this kit includes a Tenacious, would rather have a set ultra fine rods. I already have a Tenacious, and though it is a great budget folder, I don't see the need for another one. Because this kit includes a Tenacious the price is not that great, really disappointed. Wow, $33 for shipping to the Netherlands, I'm stunned! What the heck is going on lately here on Massdrop. Too bad, no deal for me. :-((

You're totally right. They will charge me another €60 with ease. A simple calculation...
