YKPuii Tobacco Grinder: Design
The YkPuii Tobacco Grinder is a sexy, feature rich, 4 piece grinder. The chrome crank handle mated to the brass ball bearings creates a classic two tone highlight against the darker zinc alloy finish of the grinder. The diamond plate pattern is visually appealing and provides functional grip when removing the lid or the pollen trap. Four glass windows adorn the pollen/kief compartment giving this grinder a very unique look. The glass lid on top gives the user full view of the grinding chamber to help determine if all the herb has been ground. At 2.5″ diameter it’s large enough to be your home base grinder as it’s a tad large to be portable.
YKPuii Tobacco Grinder: Features
In my experience the crank style grinder is one of the fastest grinders around. The mechanical advantage of a levered crank means the blades spin many times faster than a standard twist and turn style grinder. The ball bearings give a very smooth action to the grinder unlike standard grinders which over time get gummed up with resin between the lid and the grinding chamber creating sticking points. The machined blades both top and bottom cut your herb with ease. The windows in the pollen/kief chamber show you how much you’ve accumulated as it’s very easy to lose track if you don’t regularly open the chamber to check.

- BR customer: “I liked, just do not know how long the crank will endure, should come with some kind of brush for cleaning. I recommend.”
YKPuii Tobacco Grinder: Verdict
I’ve always been a fan of crank grinders and this has all the form and functionality of most popular grinders with some added benefits of speed and convenience. The only thing i would change is to drop the screen height to below the windows to maximize the ground herb capacity since the pollen chamber doesn’t need that much headroom. All in all it’s a good buy.
