Mendo Mulcher makes some exceptional grinders—all out of aircraft-grade billet aluminum—but this one might be the most useful. At only 1.75 inches, it’s best for travel, and its extra-grippy construction ensures you won’t slip up while using it despite its small size. With only two pieces though, it doesn’t have a mesh filter.

Today’s lesson is that there is a size for everyone when it comes to an herb grinder, and in order to make the informed buying decision that you want to, it really all comes down to looking in the mirror and asking yourself: What practical aspects will I consistently need in a grinder specifically for me?
The next size category is one that falls right between both ends of the spectrum and it of course is the “medium” size grinders. These are usually seen in a 62-70mm, which is about 2.5-3 inches, and if you see the smaller 50mm somewhere also being referred to as medium, that’s because every manufacturer decides for themselves what constitutes small, medium and large.
The final category can only be the “large” size grinders, and for the purposes of this article we’re going to put that range from 76mm or 3 inches, and top out at the “jumbo” size of 95mm, which equals a staggering 3.75 inches in diameter. Santa Cruz puts this model out, and you need to be mindful when using it so you don’t lose a finger or two inside there to those gigantic gnashing teeth.
First up we have the “small” category of grinders. These usually are about 40-50mm in diameter which equates to 1.5-2 inches across, and I’ve even seen a tinier one than that put out by Magic Flight which measures only a single inch from end to end and would fall into the sub-category of “mini.”
Medium size grinders give you the perfect mix between something portable and something larger for use at home.
I’m kidding of course, but the reality of this size grinder is that it’s not going travel as well or as easily as the two former sizes will, but on the plus side, it can handle just about an entire forest of greenery betwixt its recesses should the need arise. And that’s the real question to ask yourself: will the need arise? How often? If the answer is both, “yes” and “often”, then the large category is really going to be the only one to handily get the job done, and seriously cut down on your time spent twisting and turning.
Small grinders are the perfect size for use on the run.
With so many grinders on today’s market, a lot of focus is placed on all the different features and functions each one tries to outdo the next with. But seldom do you see a good perspective on the varying sizes, and just how greatly the shorter or longer diameters can really make or break the ultimate value of your own personal investment.
So bearing all this in mind, let’s examine the entire range of sizes, and see if we can’t find one that fits best with your lifestyle and day-to-day needs.
