The William Bounds company was started in 1964 by William Bounds, a renowned inventor who wanted a better pepper mill.
He patented an innovative 3-step adjusting ring and milling mechanism. The 3-step adjusting ring, on the LTD collection, removes the guesswork often associated with a pepper mill, as the setting you choose remains the same each and every time you use the mill.
The William Bounds milling mechanism works in a way that crushes rather than grinds the peppercorns. Because of this unique design-where metal is not grinding metal, as with other competitive grinders-William Bounds has not had to replace a single mill due to wear in its 36-year history.
