That's true of every grinder ever created from Zassenhaus. Coffee Knee Mills. It was in 1887 that they began making coffee knee mills. The box mill is a design that's often associated with Zassenhaus. They were one of the first to craft these type of coffee mills. The mills come in a variety of woods like Beech or Walnut.
The Zassenhaus Santiago Coffee Mill Grinder is one of the high-end brands in the coffee milling field. It's crafted by artisans, and the company has been in grinder production for over 150 years. While they wouldn't be considered cheap, you're getting a grinder with a history and craftsmanship ...
The Knee Mill features the same grinding mechanism as the Box model with an obvious improvement: the gentle indentations in the side allow you to hold the grinder between your knees while sitting. This model is narrower than the Box Mill but has more depth; the drawer holds enough coffee for a 6 cup pot.
Zassenhaus hand grinders are meant to be highly portable, "take anywhere" designs, while Zassenhaus box mills, also known as "knee grinders" because they're meant to be used sitting down, with the box between your knees as you grind, are optimized for use in the comfort of your home.
