Electric Grinder Shock Proof
Startrails by Black Leaf
This is a 4 part 42mm grinder.
The Startrails grinder by the mad scientists at Black Leaf in Germany has all the features and quality of a grinder with a much higher price tag, but then Black Leaf have a reputation for always being extremely aggressive when it comes to pricing their products, so it's no surprise this thing is an absolute bargain. The four-part design uses a bayonet type joint to secure the bottom three sections of the grinder together which means that instead of having to spend ages unscrewing them each time you just give it a simple quarter turn twist and off they pop. The only exception is the top section of the actual grinder part which is held onto the rest of the grinder by a pair of incredibly strong magnets which mean it will never come apart by accident.
The actual functionality of the grinder itself is no less impressive. The teeth are blade shaped and so will easily slice and dice even the stickiest material without crushing it all together. Once ground the material can fall through a mass of precisely drilled holes into the main collection section underneath ready to be dispensed. They have of course also built in a sifter screen which allows any loose resin sacks to fall through so they are kept safe for later when you want to use them for that extra little hit. They also supply a plastic scraper tool for you to scrape out the contents of the sifter section.
This is truly amazing. When the Easyleaf electric herb grinder came floating into the office, I have to admit I was pretty dubious. A long time lover of the original electric herb grinder (above), I found it difficult to believe that this hefty tool with smaller blades could come close to the chopping capability of its predecessor. How wrong was I? Having tested this little baby, I have to say that I was stunned! The tiny blades rotate at a very high speed, crumbling your herbs into the most incredibly fine powder, which falls through little gaps in the rotor into a specially designed compartment
The Easyleaf is like an automated version of the Space Case sifter. The powder can be used straight away, or you can compress it.
Here's what the Easyleaf company has to say about this product: 'The Easyleaf Electric grinder extracts the vital ingredient in herb. Powered by a 9v motor, the unique blade design uses centrifugal force to separate the lighter residue from the ground herbs. After a few seconds of quiet grinding, the dust is collected in the lid, whilst the ground herb is in the bowl. Magic! As well enabling you to get more out of your herbs, the Easyleaf Electric is modern design at its best. Made from precision-engineered acrylic, the grinder has a smooth, chunky feel.
