Possible to drop in an undermount sink? kinda crazy but...

I've been looking at the blanco microedge sinks thinking they'd be a great solution to my fear of chipping the edges of my quartzite around my sink. However, I feel like the prices are so disproportionately high that I'm not sure what I'm really paying for. (I'm sure Blanco would tell me that they're expertly manufactured to sit perfectly flat, etc.)

My other fear is long term commitment to anything and a single bowl undermount sink is somewhat unfamiliar and I don't want to be stuck with it if I change my mind. A drop in would help alleviate that fear as well.

Anyway, I'm open to other ideas but wondered if dropping in an undermount could be a possibility.

I've got another thread so apologies for board hogging. If anyone has another great suggestion my budget is about $400 and I've got a 33" base cabinet.

Thank you!

There are sinks that are designed to be mounted either way, but with an undermount there is not much of a finished edge around the top to create any kind of lip.

Why not just pick a conventional top mount sink?

I want it to be able to sit flush like the microedge. But I'd rather not pay $900 for a product that looks to be nearly identical to a $250 one just with a different spec sheet!

I hope that makes sense!

I have the same question. Please let me know if you try it or get a good answer.

I'm having the same issue. We really want to go undermount but limitations prevent us from doing so. I'm looking for a great drop in with very flat edges... But why are they all like $1k?!
