Info: Walnut-Shaped Device To Pry Open Walnuts
Walnuts are, of course, quite literally a hard nut to crack. And conventional nutcrackers can be difficult to use on them, especially if you have small hands, or arthritis. But did you know walnuts have an Achilles' heel: the seam in the 'equator' in their middle is relatively easy to penetrate. This little two-inch long Australian-made prying device exploits that weakness. The angled tip of its stainless steel blade is strong enough to poke in and create a gap, and then with a single twist, you can easily open up the shell to reveal the nut inside without crushing it or creating a mess of shell bits.
The blade is forged right into the ergonomically designed walnut-shaped handle (it does not come apart), so it's quite durable, but it isn't sharp, either on its tip or its edges, so it's pretty safe to use. It's also dishwasher safe.
