    I just like this vid. You've probably seen it already.


    You could probably get a pretty good shred with it though.

    Re: Toasting cured tobacco in an oven?

    The kizami tobacco video (despite its being blurry, and narrated in Japanese) shows just about the finest tobacco shred I've ever seen.

    It used to be fairly easy to locate meaningful videos on industrial tobacco shredders on YouTube, but over the past few years the site has been flooded with countless, silly home videos of everything from pasta shredders to Waring blenders being used to shred tobacco--and somehow calling themselves "commercial" or "industrial". YouTube's search engine is even worse than the FTT search engine.

    I think the bottom line on industrial shredding of tobacco is that the machines are mechanized, single-bladed guillotines.

    Completly agree with Bob,
    I think the best method to shred tobacco is to use one single guillotine blade.
    There are some video on youtube showing this kind of machine, for example :

    without motorization :

    or

    The very manual version of this is to roll some leaves together and than cut it with a sharp blade.
