The nutcracker Nut Splitter is a graceful little utensil made from precision-cast steel and inspired by an archaic practice performed by farmers and foresters, who would crack nuts with both hands and with the help of a little pocket-sized punch. The designer's vision was inspired by small propeller-like maple seeds: a sign of freedom and of the bond between different cultures.
