The Industrial Facility Nutcracker demonstrates that there are more ways than one to crack a nut. You might be accustomed to seeing two-handled crushers as the most common implement for shelling kernels, but this item exercises compression with better accuracy and improved comfort thanks to an increased surface area and a tight container.

The London-based studio has created a small hexagonal wooden box with a hole in it, intended for the insertion and the retrieval of your walnut or your pecan. Simply place the hard seed inside and wind down the oversized screw-like top. The threaded timber component of the Industrial Facility Nutcracker will slowly press down against the nut, causing it to split easily for you and making it ready to eat.
