The humble nutcracker. Largely unused due to purchasing nuts that are already cracked. Again, it’s back to that labour thing. The era of siting around the hearth with a bowl of walnuts or hazelnuts (really tough) and ceremoniously opening them is pretty much a thing of the past.


Status: Consider reviving ritual of cracking nuts. Idleness is soon to be the new busy.

Kill-ratio: Tricky little object to photograph. Not 100% satisfied but the blog must soldier on. ~58:3 or 19:1
