Our favorite grinder for many years, and the most innovative we know! Santa Cruz Shredder has a unique tooth design that does not squish your herbs. Other sharp toothed grinders actually mash and compress your herb between their knife-like teeth. 

Sadly, Santa Cruz Shredder stopped selling grinders to resellers and ran into supply problems when they outsourced their production overseas before the pandemic started.

An older design from VB works great and is available available here.

Similar to SC Shredder, VB's grinder features rectangular teeth with sharp corners that shear the herbs into pieces, similar to how scissors effortlessly cut paper. This translates to a grinder that is very easy to turn, despite being loaded with herbs.
