Affordable manual whole leaf tobacco shredder. Features stainless steel construction and table clamp.
Introducing our Standard Edition Tobacco Leaf Shredder! Tobacco leaf shredders (or tobacco cutters) offer an easy and affordable way to break down whole tobacco leaves into roll your own tobacco. This tobacco cutter has ridged cutting blades which "draw" the tobacco leaf down through the cutting heads. No need to get your hands involved shoving the leaf through the blades, the cutter's unique design does all the work for you!
Don't let its small size fool you - This shredder means business!
This shredder works best with our whole leaf tobaccos, and produces strands at about 1mm wide (great for pipe!). As with most tobacco shredders, you may need to run your leaves through a couple of times to get the desired consistency for Roll Your Own tobacco leaf. The cut is around 1 mm.
NOTICE: To ensure the longevity of your tobacco cutter, it is important to to de-stem the main vein of uncut leaves before shredding them. Also be sure that your tobacco isn't too moist when shredding otherwise it may get gummed up in the grooves. It's best to have the tobacco leaf as dry as possible without being so dry that it would crumble into powder. It is also best to clean / rinse your shredder before the first use to ensure there is no debris left over from the manufacturing process. Plant based / vegetable oil should be used on all moving parts such as bushings and bearings regularly to increase the lifespan of tobacco shredding machines.
This machine is a work horse. Well worth the price. It gives the perfect consistency that is easy to roll and will burn perfectly.

Makes it super easy to shred leaves. Way easier than scissors or coffee grinder, and shreddings burn better.

Ive been using this shredder for three years and its a great deal & a real work horse.
Only lately have I started to have challenges: gears slipping off of the shafts. Considering that I smoke a pack and a half a day ( over 1600 packs total ) thats a grinder price of about 2 cents per pack.
I upgraded to the table top grinder but that failed ( drive shaft sheared off ) within months... that was a relatively expensive experiment. The table top grinder is better built ( with the exception of the drive shaft ) but I suspect there is a quality control problem in the assembly phase. ( note: the current table top grinder looks like a slightly different model from the unit I purchased so it is possible that they have resolved the drive shaft shearing problem )
I have learned to check the gear alignment and press the gears back into alignment: maybe I'll get another 3 years out of this unit?
