Antique Pepper Mills
These are hand crafted antique pepper mills. The gears are cast metal. The Black Walnut mill features a copper finish while the Black Cherry mill features a bronze finish.
All of my pepper mills are finished using Howard Butcher Block Conditioner. The conditioner is a food safe mixture of mineral oil and bees wax.
To ensure a beautiful finish, I recommend conditioning the pepper mill ever 3 months by liberally applying a food safe conditioner of your choice.
To adjust the grind, turn the cap located at the top of the pepper mill. Turning the cap down (clockwise) results in a finer grind, while turning the cap up (counter clockwise) results in a course grind.
Note: Be careful while turning counter clockwise as the cap can be unscrewed from the shaft. If this happens and your hand is not in there to catch the spring,
it will go flying and may get lost.
