  • Odin - Cracky Nutcracker
    SOLD OUT: More info
    Cracky by designer Jack Mankiewicz and Odin is an original and very unusual nutcracker – a merry monster, half laughing dolphin, half tyrannosaurus Rex. But the important thing with nutcrackers is how they work: Cracky’s outstanding feature is its mighty teeth, its gaping wide mouth that can effortlessly break nuts of any size. Once these come between the large teeth, they are virtually incapable of further resistance. Also important for the way Cracky works is the fact that its arms are held apart by a spring, so its mouth always starts off wide open and always ready to grab a nut. Moderate force applied with one hand will suffice to crack the shell in precisely the right place, with the handles and the jaws only moving a few millimetres towards each other.

  • Alessi Nut Splitter Nut cracker
    SOLD OUT: More info
    The "Nut splitter" was developed during the workshop on "Ethic and Design" in July 2007. It's a small and gracious utensil made using steel precision casting and is a reminder of an ancient use in agricultural rural life: opening a nut with both hands with the help of a small punch. Our inspiration came from the little propellers of the maple tree's seeds: a sign of freedom and fusion. Using these nutcrackers, designed by Jim Hannon-Tan, is much more intuitive than it appears from the shape : you just have to insert the point between the two halves of the nut and rotate it to apply pressure. The ergonomic grip, which fits the fingers well, and the "soft" contact with the polished precision cast stainless steel make the action a pleasurable experience. The item is carefully gift wrapped. In detail: Type : Nut cracker. Colour : Steel. Material : 18/10 stainless steel. Dimensions : L 4 cm x W 3,5 cm. Characteristics : Gift-packaging.
