This medical-grade anodized aluminum herb SHREDDER from Santa Cruz Shredder is the ultimate in new herb SHREDDER technology. Every element of the SHREDDER has been analyzed and improved upon, from the revolutionary tooth design and threading pattern to the Lanthanide (Rare Earth) magnet used in the secure lid closure system. The superior textured grip makes this SHREDDER an absolute favorite among patients who are suffering from hand or wrist pain. Proudly engineered and precision manufactured in Santa Cruz, California, United States of America.
This SHREDDER measures approximately 1 1/2" in Diameter (Roughly half the length of a BIC Lighter).
SANTA CRUZ SHREDDER
Santa Cruz Shredder is engineered to perfection. After carefully analyzing the inner working of how a proper tooth design should work, they used a special computer program called Siemens CAD Software to invent the most ”perfect” shredding tooth design ever conceived by man! Sharp-edged teeth are not the best approach… Sharp-edged teeth will dull and are full of burrs & tiny flakes of aluminum – constantly falling into your smoking blend. This is not only unhealthy, but extremely toxic to the consumer. First, sharp edged teeth take a lot of initial torque to start turning. This initial pressure will force it to bend at the base, causing “metal fatigue” resulting in the eventual breakage of the tooth and releasing even more flakes of aluminum into your blend.
Santa Cruz Shredder's precision developed
grinding shredding teeth are radius at the base for exceptional strength and are specifically designed for extreme use. These teeth are arguably at least twice as strong as the competition, will never dull and will never release burrs or flakes of aluminum. Comparable grinders cut once – letting bb-sized chunks pass through the holes without further grinding. The SHREDDER's teeth are designed to cut multiple ways, which include unique clearances on both sides of the teeth (not to slice or smash herb), but to cause it to consistently “FLUFF TO PERFECTION“.
REVOLUTIONARY NEW THREADING DESIGN
Santa Cruz Shredder has solved this frustrating problem! They developed a unique and proprietary thread pattern engineered to completely eliminate the binding & permanent seizing of the screw-together parts. The threaded surfaces are all anodized to permanently eliminate “galling”. Galling is a form of surface damage arising between two sliding metals in contact with one another. Raw aluminum threads transfer wear-debris from each surface causing a build-up; therefore creating lumps, deformations, roughness & eventual failure. Santa Cruz Shredder invented a new approach using a “7-Catch Design” allowing the user to easily adjoin the parts with very little effort. Most grinders rotate around & around until the user eventually finds the thread catch, and then has to continue screwing on the component over & over until it’s secure. This causes additional wear & tear, the possibility of cross-threading, and a confusing amount of turns.
SUPERIOR GRIP (PREFERRED BY MEDICAL PATIENTS)
Santa Cruz Shredder prides itself as the best grinder available for our Medical customers. The “knurled” grip is substantially more pronounced than other grinders, improving hand and finger grip. You can easily see the superior grip pattern as well as feel how much less effort it takes to turn. This extremely gripable lid makes it that much easier to rotate the grinder, lowering the torque necessary to use the product and providing a “butter” smooth fluffing tool.
SUPERIOR SCREENS - BETTER SCREEN MEANS BETTER RESULTS
Santa Cruz Shredder uses T304 Micronic Precision Woven Non-Fraying Stainless Steel Screen in the manufacture of the SHREDDER. The most optimal micron size of any grinder on the market. Other grinders use a lower micron size (larger opening) to create the appearance they’re working by letting more “stuff” filter through, but they’re actually allowing more impurities (dirt, fertilizer, insect traces, etc.) to pass into your final pollen compartment. Additionally, the screens are secured using a “drum-skintight” screen capturing design. This pulls the screen tight in all direction before permanently locking into place. Other grinders have loose screens that stretch & warp, causing the screen to “pop” or adjust and fling your herbal blends out of the product.
As would be expected, Santa Cruz Shredder uses the highest quality magnets in the world. These are not “toy” magnets. The cheap magnets the majority of the competition uses are pathetically weak, tend to fall out (a lot), and their protective coating flakes off into your smoking blend. Santa Cruz Shredder exclusively uses Neodymium Diametrically Magnetized Cylindrical Rare Earth Magnets. Nickel-Copper-Nickel triple layer coated for maximum durability and protection against abuse & corrosion. These incredibly superior magnets provide a reliable lid closure system that prevents your herbal blends from drying out, accidental spillage, and escaping odors. They are ISO Certified, top shelf quality, provide superior performance, and are guaranteed for life!
Santa Cruz Shredder is the only manufacturer of grinders with strict clean-room Medical-Grade Ultrasonic Cleansing procedures. The cleaning procedure uses high-frequency sound waves and a medical-grade cleansing solution to remove ALL contaminates. Cavitation bubbles induced by this agitation act upon ALL contaminants embedded during the machining process. This action penetrates blind holes, cracks & even the tiniest recesses; thoroughly removing all traces of contamination tightly adhering to any surface (including dust, dirt, toxic machining lubricants, grease, fingerprints, and toxic polishing compounds). This is precisely the same process used in the medical industry to disinfect medical instruments before surgical procedures.
Comparable manufacturers typically just “dunk their product into a day-old bucked of soap & blow it off with a tire hose”… Raw aluminum is in fact a porous material and absolutely requires ultrasonic cleaning to truly claim Medical-Grade quality. Machined raw aluminum is unfortunately loaded with toxic agents and is considered extremely hazardous to the end user. You can all too often often see the dirt and grime in other grinders, smell traces of machining oils, and you can wipe other grinders with a cloth to reveal inadequately removed polishes and other toxic machining chemicals. There are no other grinder manufacturers (especially thinking of the foreign knock-offs being peddled out of Asia) that take anywhere near the pride and medical sanitation steps to ensure a literally perfect product for their customer.
Santa Cruz Shredder guarantees your SHREDDER is genuinely the ONLY Medical-Grade grinder on Earth!
TOTALLY SCRATCH RESISTANT
Santa Cruz Shredder solved this problem too. Anodizing is the only way to go! Anodizing is an electrolytic passivation process used to create a strong protective coating for aluminum that prevents corrosion, wear resistance, and “galling” (failing) of threaded parts. After an acid bath the SHREDDER is suspended in specialized holding tanks which pass an electrical current through the grinder components, thus creating an extremely strong protective surface.
Anodizing changes the microscopic texture of the surface of the SHREDDER and permanently changes the crystalline structure of the aluminum near the surface. It not only bonds to the surface, but actually molecularly becomes the new surface. Raw aluminum is a very soft, extremely porous material prone to even the tiniest scratches. Anodizing molecularly creates a tactfully coloured shield around the SHREDDER.
Santa Cruz Shredder engineers ultra-high quality grinders that are truly scratch resistant, using aerospace industry quality anodizing procedures for the ultimate protection. Comparable grinders are raw aluminum (unsanitary) which are highly susceptible to scratches, cross-threading, and are only polished to provide a temporary illusion of quality (also unsanitary). Santa Cruz Shredder has created an entire line of both glossy and matte anodized finishes that anyone will love.
