    It looks really sharp! The 100% SS material and finish look great. I just have a hard time justifying a new grinder when my Space Case and S&B units do the job so well. The Kannastor Vapor is kinda cool tho.

    There is one thing I do not like about the ripper grinder from the photos. My main grinder is the two piece NewVape Fine Grind which always produces a perfectly smooth grind for vaping (no chunks). What I do not like about the ripper are the large holes where the herb falls through. The problem is that little nug chunks make it through the holes before being completely ground. So you end up with a nice grind with some chunks. All my three piece grinders have a version of this issue. This is why I prefer a two piece grinder over 3 and 4 piece grinders any day of the week.

    I agree!!
    Why i love my Kannastor Vape GR8TR!! Small holes means zero chunks!

    Check the IG thread i linked above and watch the 5th post a video with the blue lighter.
    This is the ONLY grind video showing the grind, by a user...

    Received mine a day early! Thanks @HerbRipper for the priority shipping. The box it came in was a little flimsy but it was bubble wrapped and shipped in a much bigger box.

    The ball bearing is pretty neat! I like just spinning it around in the chamber. It's a lot smaller then I pictured it to be! Tall but slender and boy does it have weight to it! Compared to my SCS it feels much more premium. Also I must say I really like the laser etched design on the top! I really love the way it feels and the ability to clean due to the ss construction. seems really sharp and I can't wait to get it cleaned and test it out later tonight!! Knurls are awesome as well!

    waiting on consistency but so far it's gorgeous

    I have had my eye on the Ripper, and been seriously tempted. I might still buy...

    For now, to scratch my Stainless Steel grinder itch, I recently bought a newer revision (with magnet) "Lincig" brand grinder with rotary stainless blades, similar to the Canadian "Lift" grinder. I was originally going to buy the "Lift" (because generally, I do not care for copy or knockoff products!) but I could not get one with the fine coarseness grinding plate, the only option for buying the fine grinding plate is a huge-ass full grinder "package deal" with tons of stuff I don't need, for $130. No thanks. They have the 3-piece grinder I want, but with medium-coarseness grind plate only - $85. Not too smart, Lift... you lost business by not offering your customer what he wants.

    The "Lincig" upgraded model with magnet is $70 by comparison, and comes with all 3 coarsenesses of plates. The grinder itself is perfect... everything I wanted... plus...

    No teeth cleaning! The Lincig (and, I suspect the "Lift" too...) scissors up the herb into PERFECT fine fluffy grind, about the consistency of coarse ground wheat flower.... ALL WHILE KEEPING THE GRINDER INTERNALS CLEAN!!! No cleanup, no scraping or getting herb off little diamond shaped teeth... this grinder runs CLEAN and stays that way.

    For that reason alone, it has replaced almost every other grinder I use. :)

    Need ideas and input on this here herb ripper. It's a solid stainless steel grinder made by this dude Kevin in Cincinnati. He needs input from us in helping him build the perfect grinder.

    I've been emailing back and forth with ideas to make this grinder a great one

    smaller holes from grinding chamber to the catch.

    more refined flat surfaces/clean up

    threads!! They do the trick however it needs improvement.

    ( Had a ball bearing in the keif catch to help speed along the process) pretty awesome idea.

    Someone over on VLF mentioned powder coating the outside various colors??

    Ideas? Feedback? Thanks! Peace and love!

    Edit: I don't work for this company just trying to make a good product great and we have the opportunity to have an American made stainless steel grinder with our input
