The KLIP Herb Grinder, by HØJ – In a Word: Sleek
We recently had the opportunity to try out the KLIP mini herb grinder from HØJ (pronounced HOY (pretty much)). HØJ is the Danish word for “High” and it’s the name of the company that produces the KLIP, as well as the KØL, a pretty revolutionary looking pipe. But we’re here to review the KLIP.
Our reviewers were very excited when the package arrived with the KLIP in it. The packaging alone tells you something special is inside. At first, we were like, “What the hell?” when we opened the box and found ground up cork as the packing material. But then it hit us – Eco-friendly! And that’s pretty cool. The container the grinder comes in is also made of cork and probably the slickest package concept we’ve seen.
First, we need to warn that this might be a grinder you need to keep away from credit cards, data storage devices, and probably pacemakers. Why? Magnets. EVERYTHING is magnetized. Even the cork box is embedded with magnets. And the grinder itself is held together by strong internal magnets as well. We loved this concept, because it makes it super easy to travel with the grinder and less likely to lose pieces or spill your herb.
On the outside, the HØJ grinder looks very sleek. Its clean lines and modern shape definitely make it look like something on the upper end of devices. It’s heavy too, which makes the feel in your hand seem like you’re holding something of high quality. Once you begin prying apart the magnetized components, it might seem a bit complicated, but it didn’t take us long to figure it out. And it’s almost like Christmas finding all the hidden features of this grinder.
Down to Business
When it comes to grinders – or anything really – what matters is how it works. And our reviewers had almost all positive things to say about the HØJ KLIP grinder. Here’s their feedback in their own words:
Shelby: It’s definitely very sleek and I like that it’s magnetic, because sometimes with grinders, as they age, the threads on the opening part get sticky or worn out, so it makes it hard to open or close my grinder. The magnets in the KLIP are very strong and reliable so far. The design is sleek as well, and I love the look of it. It’s definitely something that’s fun to show off. And I also like that you can choose what size to grind your bud. You can break it up really fine for joints or bowls, and you can make it chunky for blunts. It’s really cool. I’d easily spend my money on this.
Shailyn: It only fits a little bit of weed at one time, but it grinds quickly and comes out beautifully. You have to hold the compartments together more when you’re trying to grind, but not a big deal, although, the bottom fell off a couple times. In order to release the screen to change it, there’s a button in the center of the first chamber (grinding chamber) that you press down, and it comes off quickly. That’s pretty cool. The many screens that come with the KLIP have these notches that tell you which way is the correct way to place it. All in all, an excellent product. I’m not sure I would spend that much money on it, maybe $100 max. But, I’d say 4 out of 5 stars at least.
If you’re going to spend 130 bucks on a weed grinder, it had better be something special. And the KLIP herb grinder from HØJ is about as special as a grinder can get. Moreover, it seems like something that will last a lifetime, so by the time you buy 284 of those cheap, plastic grinders, you’re probably ahead anyway. Those Danes – first they come up with the best breakfast pastry ever, now one of the best weed grinders we’ve seen… what’s next!?
NOTE: This is NOT a paid review. All we got was the grinder.
