The Feld2, as Knock puts it, is the Feldgrind "Honed." It features the same coated steel burrs as the previous iteration, with new refinements to the build that make it easier to use and adjust. The aluminum body is now made from a single piece of material, which helps improve burr alignment. The new handle and lid are designed for easier adjustment, with the lid functioning as the adjustment collar and the handle doubling as the setting indicator. Settings are clearly marked by 12 number indicators around the lid rim, with each revolution translating to about 0.8 mm of vertical travel at the cone burr. A new pommel on the handle makes for a very comfortable grip during grinding, and the longer handle itself offers some increased leverage over other hand grinder designs. While Knock's intent is for the Aergrind to be their more travel-ready grinder, the Feld2 is still compact and light enough to pack away in a bag easily for travel.

To make grind adjustments, just hold the lid firmly in place and rotate the handle about its axis. Espresso settings can be found between 1 and 2 revolutions, and manual drippers will start around 3-4 revolutions depending on dripper style and batch size. 5 full revolutions gives a good french press grind. The new lid can be a little tricky as if it is rotated when removed the keyholes for the handle and lid will be misaligned. In the event that this happens, inset the handle-lid assembly so it first locks in to the handle keyhole. Then, apply gentle downward pressure and rotate the lid until it drops into place. It may be easier to visually align the keyholes on the underside of the handle-lid assembly to match the drive shaft first.

Excellent product - consistent grind and easy to use

I switched over from the Hario manual grinder and I'm very satisfied with the Feld2. It's easy to use and gets the job done. You can taste the difference!

Great service and great product

Primal did a great job of quickly shipping the grinder. They also had review comparisons and informational videos available to help me with the product once I got it. The grinder is amazing. Thank you!!!

Prima and Feld2

Fast shipping from Prima as usual! The Feld2 is an amazing improvement over the Hario Skerton. I can grind 100g of medium-fine around 6-8 minutes so even though the hopper has a capacity of 30g, it will still take less time than cheaper alternatives.

Good grinder.

Okay, so many things. First, I was getting tired of my other manual grinders -a Porlex and a Hario Skerton- and I decided it was time for an upgrade. I was between a Lido and the Feld2. I read a lot of reviews, and I concluded that they are both great products. To be honest, I went for the Feld2 because I really liked the dial and how easily it is to adjust between grind sizes. The good things: It is a sturdy, beautiful piece of equipment. The dial works really well. Regarding the grindng itself, I found it very uniform. Full discolosure: I only brew coffee at home, mainly pour-overs and French press, so I don't have much to say regarding how this grinder performs for espresso-sized grounds. The bad: The presentation kind of sucks. For a 150 USD grinder I expected something more than some generic brown box with no manual. I didn't really like that the grinder holds up around 35g of beans, so if you want to brew larger batches, you'll need to grind separately. Sometimes there is some static, which makes your coffe "stick" to the container - however, I think this is a problem with all grinders that use steel burrs. Finally, if you move the dial when it is not placed in the grinder, you can have some issues getting it to perfectly fit the grinder. Prima coffee's description explains how to solve this issue, though, which is very easy. Overall, I am extremely happy with the Feld2 and I use it every day.

Great grinder

I'm very happy so far, I've had it about two weeks. The grinder is able to grind finer than my espresso machine can handle and is stepless so I'm not going to have a problem with adjustability. Grinding is pretty easy at espresso fineness levels, it just takes some time. There are no instructions in the box and you can unscrew the adjustment screw so far that the dial is no longer functioning. This can be fixed by manually adjusting the screw with pliers.

Feld2 Handgrinder

I ordered this grinder from Prima after posting two inquiries on the Knock web site without reply. (Curiously the shopping cart on the web site was working.) Subsequently I read of another purchaser with a warranty issue to which there was no response also. Prima offers an excellent return policy and I decided it best to order here. I was also able to speak to someone at Prima offering first hand experience with the grinder. The Feld2 arrived without any instruction manual. I was able to find a link which someone kindly posted showing photographs describing the configuration of the grinder. Problems with aligning the double shaft in order to set an initial grind setting are vexing. The grinder is a precision tool with a pleasing heft and the silicone grip collar is a nice addition. By the time my kettle boils, I have produced a high quality grind to make a rich Aeropress coffee. Operating the high quality burrs, it feels more like a cutting rather than grinding action. I am willing to spend time learning how to configure the grinder and I am happy with the purchase.

Knock Grinders :)

I love Knock's grinders, I am always one for more slim and skinny. For me it just feels right as opposed to the bulkier ones available on the market. Consistency is fantastic, You taste it in the cup.

Bottom Slips Off

Great build quality, and grind. After about twenty uses, an issue came up that is pretty annoying. As you can see, the unit is made of two casings, sleeved together by friction. When grinding I hold the top sleeve with one hand, and turn with the other. After about 20 uses, the bottom casing is now slipping from the top one when I grind so that it feels like it will fall off. In one case, it actually did, grinds and all falling onto the floor. The only solution is to hold both at once in the middle, but because of the distance to the lever, this is not comfortable. I am not sure what the solution is. I have contacted Knock three times about the issue, and received no response at all. Does anyone know how to reach them, other than the email-generating form on the website? They either aren't getting the messages or not answering them. Overall. I was super happy about the grinder until this happened, and now I am disappointed in the slippage and even more in the customer service.
