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.
Some objects may be sharp. Please handle with care.
