For the external wood component of the Totem grinder, we opted for sustainably sourced American walnut for durability and longevity. In a nutshell, it's spun on a lathe (a machine used for shaping wood), and hand-carved into the final shape. The Totem is then sanded and polished with a natural wax, while spinning on the lathe for natural sheen. What we love most about this process: since we use natural materials formed by hand, every design is slightly different!
When it comes to the inner metal part of the grinder, aluminum billet is die-cast to the general form of the grinder core. Highly detailed machines mill the cores, and a hardening anodized finish protects the metal, while also allowing for easy cleaning.
And there you have it: the only grinder you'll ever need.
Simply put, the Totem works like a charm, gets better with age and looks beautiful as a décor accent. Get yours here today!
