The Nutcracker

Long time since christmas when I was in my best walnut cracking shape but I found 3 left over nuts to show you how I do it.
If you want to crack a walnut with your bare hands like I show it in the video: with two fingers, you need a simple finger-workout-tool: a spring clamp.

This is the spring clamp I use - other designs will work as well.

To crack the walnut all you need to do is place it between the tongs and the walnut will crack... Well of course this is not the way to do it for a real man... Use every spare second you have to pinch the clamp. I do it when I watch TV, travel or I'm sitting through one of my girlfriends long speeches about feelings and what not. When your finger muscles get strong enough you can start practicing on the walnuts.

Start by squeezing two walnuts together, so the pressure of the one walnut will crush the other. Then I worked my way up to crush the walnut between my thumb and first finger.

So what are you waiting for? Get cracking!
