The Grong Guy LLC began turning out the first prototype wooden Grongs in early September 2017. A two man team consisting of myself, Clay Friedrich, and Scott Milliron, lathed out a few different styles before settling on an ergonomic design. Since then, The Grong has become a polished piece with laser engraving (big thanks to Brock Livingstone), stainless steel screen, and reinforcement tubing. The next step in Grong evolution came in March of 2020 with a silicone unit added to the lineup. A durable silicone body combined with a thick glass insert make the silicone Grong just as hardy as the original!
