If you scroll up a bit for the product we reviewed above, you’ll be able to see the first difference. The weight of this product is only 2.4 ounces while the weight of the other one is all the way up at 5.6 ounces. As it is almost twice the difference in weight, that might be something worth considering when choosing between the two.
The price of this product is mostly the same across all the designs and is also a few bucks cheaper than the one above as well. The designs that come with this product include: black, green, pink, gold, purple, light blue, and gunmetal (a bit more expensive than the others). This gives you a wide selection of colors to choose from so that you can choose the one that fits your personality the best. It is made of a durable aluminum alloy to give you the satisfaction and security that the grinder you are using is heavy duty and durable. Some expensive grinders are a bit more fragile than the ones we reviewed here as brands sacrifice durability in exchange for better functionality and look. For those, a minor drop will create a huge dent which will disturb the process of grinding. However, this grinder will be able to survive minor drops due to the aluminum alloy and function properly, even after a few drops. It comes with a 4-piece, 3 chamber design to give you a smoother, functional grinding experience. Some features you’ll be able to experience with this grinder include pollen scraper, durable ring, mesh screen, and portability.
The durable ring, also known as the O-ring, will allow you to grind weed a lot smoother compared to without it. If you have ever experienced a crank that has a kink every few seconds, then you’ll be able to realize why having an O-ring is so important. It is also portable, mostly due to its smaller size and weight. Overall, this product is recommended for those that are looking for a cheap grinder that does its job and has decent quality. Whether you’re inside or outside, having a portable weed grinder is convenient. It allows you to grind wherever you want so that you have ground up weed that is the right size to roll up in a joint to smoke. Without it, you’ll only have marijuana that you can’t do much with. However, the grinders that are recommended by industry experts today are either too pricey or has too many features that aren’t needed. By reading out reviews above, you should’ve been able to pick out one or two cheap grinders you’re interested in getting so that you can grind weed yourself at the convenience of wherever you are without having to spend too much money. There is no way to better distinguish a gentleman from a boor, than by the method used to toast his cigar. Factoring in more than just the type of lighter used, one can tell a lot from the style chosen by the cigar or pipe smoking gentleman. Granted, there must be some time allotted for the young man who has never enjoyed a fine cigar and pulls out a gas station lighter. However, for any nobleman who engages in the delight of smoking, not having the proper lighting apparatus is not only an indication of inexperience but more-so, an insult to the tobacco he lights with it. The fact remains that the only acceptable lighter to toast tobacco with is a butane lighter. The reason for this is that the fuel doesn’t affect the taste or aroma of the tobacco like the many fuels used in those basic lighters you can buy at any convenience store, gas station or smoke shop. Whether it be to light your cigar or your pipe, the quality of the fuel used is critical in ensuring you get an even burn without any chemical residues or flavors being transferred to the tobacco. Another big benefit of using the torch lighter is that the flame is significantly more intense which makes it easier to quickly and evenly light the cigar or pipe that uses a damp tobacco. However, there are differences between the two types of lighters. Cigar lighters, or torch lighters as they’re often called, offer a far more aggressive and hot flame that rises from the top of the lighter. A pipe lighter, on the other hand, is a softer flame that covers a broader area and usually jets from the side of the lighter which makes it easier to angle the flame into your pipe without burning your fingers. While both styles of lighters can be interchanged, for the true connoisseur it can be of the utmost importance to use the proper lighter. Sure, you may use it yourself, but it’s there to lend to someone else in need. Just because you don’t plan to smoke a cigar during your afternoon walk, doesn’t mean that you won’t stumble upon someone else in need of a light. Having the ability to offer it is a practice that dates back to the Victorian era when men would retire to their drawing room after dinner for a cigar with their fellow guests. This history continued throughout much of the Edwardian era and still continues to this day in many aristocratic households. As the tradition goes, it would be up to the host to offer the lighter around the room for men to use. This was partly due to the etiquette of entertaining, but also because lighters were not as safe or small back then, and you stood less of a chance of lighting yourself on fire or having gunpowder leak into your pocket if you just relied on the lighter offered by the host.
Today, lighters are far more compact and safe to carry. As traditions became more modern, it became a polite necessity to carry a lighter with you. This tradition grew in popularity with the mass-marketing of cigarettes in the 1940s and 1950s, continuing well into the 1960s.
With a significant percentage of the adult population smoking tobacco, odds were that you would regularly be asked for a ‘light’ while promenading through town.
