I Need This Genius Spring Smasher To Crack My Nuts

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. That means turkey, mashed potatoes, and also probably a bowl of nuts that still have the stupid shell on them for some stupid reason. WTF, is this the Middle Ages?

Instead of reaching for some lame two-pronged cracker, or worse, some kitchen implement that looks like a smallish man with a terrifying grin and some sort of insane hat, I desperately want this spring-based "Naomi" cracker from Take 2. All the joy of stretching a slinky, all the functionality of a swift kick to the groin.

The Naomi is kind of hard to buy. It's a Japanese import and from what I can tell, I'd have to try and buy it from Amazon.ca for like 70 bucks, until it's available on the Red Dot shop for 20 euros. But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't seriously considering it anyway. Review (maybe) forthcoming. [Take 2 via Digg]
