The difference between shredding and grinding is all in the teeth! Santa Cruz Shredders cut multiple directions simultaneously, resulting in evenly fluffed material instead of dense chunks produced by typical grinders. Built to be incredibly durable and never dull, the unique SCS tooth design is thicker at the base for sustained longevity. The deeply knurled texture around the top and bottom edges of the Santa Cruz Shredder ensure a firm grip for the easiest rotation possible with minimal hand fatigue. Santa Cruz Shredder colors are a result of aluminum anodizing, which also hardens the aluminum’s surface for scratch-resistance and helps protect the threads against burring, cross-threading and binding together. Santa Cruz Shredder magnets are among the best available, triple coated with Nickel and Copper for resistance against damage and corrosion. Top-quality Neodynium Rare Earth Magnets firmly secure the top piece, allowing easy rotation while preventing your material from drying out or spilling.
