When I first opened this thing up, I thought it was a part from some NASA space vehicle. I received their large size, which has a really cool PAPER HOLDER and ASHTRAY built into the top. Very interesting. This is a unique grinder, with a different approach and design than traditional grinders. Immediately you notice that the Phoenician is not your normal SMOOTH-looking grinder. It has an innovative NON-THREADED closure system, referred to as a LOCKING NOTCH closure system, which takes some getting used to. This type of closure system makes it easier for patients with weak hand strength to be able to use the product. The grinder also has a different design and shape of grinding teeth. The teeth are sharp curved blades, on top and bottom, which create a scissor- like cutting action when rotated, another innovative and interesting feature. It’s also lightweight, which takes the patient into consideration. I guess my only issue with this product, is that it is a bit noisy and sounds “tinny” during rotation, but I understand that because of the lighter weight material, this is going to happen. Its performance is great, and it’s a great looking product. Definitely designed with the patient in mind. This grinder is on the higher price level, but it’s HUGE, USA MADE, and very innovative.

Great grinder. It’s basically a traditional-looking grinder that’s nice and heavy. Flawless machining, with a very smooth and quiet action. This grinder has a LOADING ZONE section, which is a small cut out area to put a bud in that allows you to not have to use so much force and pressure when placing the top on and beginning your grind. The Compton Grinder also came with a pretty cool screen removal tool that looks like some medieval warrior tool. This grinder is in the mid price range, and is quite a bit smaller than the other grinder tested. I guess my only complaint would be that they don’t make a BIG ONE, yet, which would significantly increase the purchase price and move it into the same price level as the other grinder tested. Loved it.
