What is a "nutcracker"?

A nutcracker is a hand tool designed specifically for cracking the shells of nuts to access the edible kernel inside. It typically consists of two hinged arms, with one end containing a ridged or serrated surface for gripping the nut, and the other end featuring a lever or handle for applying pressure to crack the shell. Nutcrackers come in various sizes and designs, ranging from simple handheld models to larger, more decorative versions for tabletop use.
