We love all the plastic and metal grinders we have seen, but there is just something about wood that makes it feel more natural. Probably the fact that it is natural. This grinder is for people who like things that are a bit unorthodox, because when was the last time you saw someone use a wooden grinder? This grinder comes in different colors. It has been properly polished to ensure that the finishing does not go off with regular use. At the end of the day, we just feel great putting in our herbs in something made out of wood – makes the whole process feel more natural.
