Huon Pine. Very sought after and rare timber salvaged near Stanley Tasmania. Both mills show a juxtaposition between the weathered exterior and the beautifully clean, smooth and tightly grained golden hue.  Both mills feature branch inclusions: fiddleback; miniature birds-eyes and so many growth rings they are impossible to count.  Heavily aged exterior demonstrates untold time spent submerged prior to salvage. These mills are shaped in our popular curvy Sentinel-style.

The infinitely adjustable Danish designed CrushGrind® ceramic mechanism is guaranteed for 25 years.

Size. John: 250mm  x 72mm   505 grams; and  Yoko 240mm x 65 mm    387 grams

Care Instructions

Almost without exception, all of our products have been made from reclaimed or recycled timber such as old posts and cattle rails. These have stood the test of time, but still don’t cope well with exposure to extremes of sudden temperature or humidity changes.

They have been finished in a blend of natural oils and waxes and should require only very minimal ongoing maintenance – at most, a yearly wipe over with food-safe neutral oil such as grapeseed or ricebran. At the same time, perhaps a very light smear on the top of the pentagonal aluminium shaft to allow the top to continue to slide on easily.

The ceramic grinding mechanism loves to crush good quality rock salt and whole peppercorns. Either white or pink Himalayan rock salt will work well but white has less moisture content so it works best.  We strongly recommend Saxa brand rock salt which is specifically labelled “suitable for refillable grinders”.

Properly seasoned wood is stable but might change superficially.
