A Walnut / Peel Walnut‘s Tool

A Walnut
A Walnut

Initially, we do not have tools to peel walnuts, break opening the shell only by squeezing two walnuts one another. Now, increasingly convenient tools appear, while some of the instinctive skills gradually wear away. Design of "A Walnut" is intended to raise people's awareness of the wisdom as well as understanding of skills in their own lives."A Walnut" is made of metal, modeled on shape and texture of walnut in terms of appearance. It is not easy to peel walnuts, and in the absence of tools, we will take two walnuts in hand, closing the edge of two walnuts together to compose a cross, and it would be broken with a hard hand grip.
