In this lineup it goes hario / kyocera / cuissential. I ended up not being able to find any info on the cuissential so I bought the hario. It wasn't worth losing 10 or 20 bucks over. Does anyone have any personal experience?

I have the Kyocera and haven't heard of the knock off. Hario and Kyocera are the exact same. OE talks about it and shows both taken apart. I highly recommend buying their low bearing kit for course grind ($15) as well as an M8 posilock nut to make the grinder stepless. This makes it an amazing for all grinds. This is my main grinder for my Silvia! :) Total cost for all just under $80

Yeah, they don't appear identical. Can't tell if the differences are significant. It looks like the underside isn't the same so I wonder if the OE mod will fit?
Add to the list of mods for the Kyocera CM-50 / Hario Skerton: - some sort of top to prevent beans or pieces of beans from popping out onto the floor - replace the hard to hold rounded lower jar with a straight-sided canning jar (e.g. Kerr regular 16 oz Mason jar)
