Lucite nutcracker

Here is a Lucite (acrylic) nutcracker, and it’s one of the best, most  modern looking nutcrackers I’ve ever seen!  Simply designed with clean lines, it is made of transparent acrylic.  Where there are screw threads, it has a matte finish.

The base of the nut cracker is just under 3” by 3” by 1” depth.  There is a large, 1-1/2” diameter circular opening to allow insertion of a nut and a threaded hole in the top to allow for the cracking.

Through this threaded hole is placed a 1/2” diameter screw, 3” in total length, also made of Lucite.  The flared screw handle is well designed for gripping and turning against a nut.  The handle is approximately 1” by 1-1/4” in size.
