If you think nutcrackers all come in one form only, think again! This nutcracker makes use of spring action to drive force into walnut shells to crack them open. Simply place a walnut on the circular platform and put under the spring nutcracker. Pull back the top ball of the spring and aim at the Walnut. Do this many a few times until the shell is broken and easily removable. You'll never have to exert too much effort to get the nuts out of their shells!
The Cyclone Nut Cracker is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
