Heavy Metal Nut Cracker – minimalist nut cracker

Image

Somewhere in the dim, dark past an ancestor of someone’s picked up a rock and smashed open a walnut. Now you can relive that historical moment with the Heavy Metal Nutcracker. It’s powered by gravity so if the batteries go flat you’ve got other issues, the ball is in a cage so you won’t lose it, it looks good sitting on a desk and won’t get tangled like Newton’s Cradle. Bargain, €34.99.

A design deliberately kept simple and very tactile to use, the Heavy Metal Nutcracker works on the principle of gravity. To use, just raise the large, smooth steel ball to the top of the U-brackets. Then let it fall, and feel a sense of satisfaction as you watch and hear is it crack open the nut, waiting on the base below.
