Sweet, I am up on the North Shore. I have been in the market for a SS unit. I almost grabbed a HR but I may have to keep it local.

Before the window closes on you being able to edit your original post (6 hours), can you change your images to a host other than imjur?
Best bet is tinypic or... I am blanking on the others right now, but a search will find you other options. Just want to make sure everyone can see your images without having to hit reply!

Just took a look at the site. Very cool looking grinder. I love the outside look and the cutters are a really interesting shape. Threadless is a really big deal to a bunch of folks here.
The screen design makes me a little nervous because it looks like you’d have to brush it out a lot to keep all those crevasses clean.
The description says it’s a “fine” grind - any chance you can show us pics of ground material?
Looking forward to seeing some reviews!

Edit: didn’t see @bizwaxzion request til after I posted. Great minds...

I am in! Looks like a great product. The USA production and lack of threads sounds great for my aging grip. I also prefer a fine grind. Soon to be gifting away my existing grinders. Thanks Mike!

I have a crazy weekend, I'll be sure to get a few pics of the grind tomorrow night.

How much?
The market is flooded with grinders in your current size.
You have clients telling you what they want how you choose to respond is up to you.

Great work with the grinder @UnitedMike! It got to me super quick and it has replaced both of my other grinders (SCS, and a freebie). It is a heavy little unit that makes grinding very easy without the threaded top typical to most. I also really like having the option to pull the kief screen out. I want all the goodness at one time, no need to save the random heads. @arb if they made you a 6" model, it would be quite hefty in hand.
The current version weighs in at, shit! well it weighs more than my T2 scale reads. 120 grams +
Grind is fine and fluffy, perfect for my needs. Been having less than excellent results with the coarse grind from the SCS in my Ghost. Problem solved!

unbearably light in the being....
250g, according to the website.

This looks as much like a kif harvester as it does a grinder, you need a pic of the screen removed/removal.
Seriously, this will break people of the habit of putting dimes in their herb chambers....

Looks great, real interested in the teeth & how they work, doesn’t really seem to offer beyond what my SC brings.
Next time I have a genuinely disposable $75, maybe.

arb’s suggestion is pretty good, although I really think 6” is TOO big, even for big hands (I haz ‘em). Still, 5” with a knurled top and a deeper catch would be good for making quick work of an ounce or so. Not everyone with “a lot o’ pot” wants to really tear their shit up...better to use a tool made for the job

I’ve seen a couple of 4 inch (100 mm) grinders and they seemed huge but then I’m not a big man. @arb have you ever seen or owned one of those before? I get an image of you tossing one aside, “it’s too tiny! Made for girly hands!” Come to think of it mate, how fucking big are your mitts?! This does nothing to dispel the legend of arb that I’ve created, fits in perfectly actually! I’ve gotta write this stuff down, man.

Maybe there is a market for a massive grinder for the big & tall stoner, but I wonder if they would sell in the numbers to justify tooling up for a production run and make a profit. I honestly don’t know; maybe it would sell shitloads but nobody has brought it to market. Maybe @arb is onto something or is it @ClearBlueLou with a proposal for a more modest dimensions of a 5 inch grinder? Or are they both bonkers?

If it was double the weight of their current offering, that’s over a pound of grinder. Perhaps for a grinder of that size, 7075 aluminium stock might be a better option? Idk, I don’t have a horse in this race...

Hey Thanks! Glad you're enjoying it.

It does weigh in at slightly over half a pound, but hey steel is a bit heavier. Haha.

We theoretically COULD make a 6 inch grinder out of the same material, but it would be absurdly expensive. And very heavy, although could open up a secondary use as a boat anchor - Which could be useful to someone, somewhere.
