Materials: Iroko (body); Wenge (arms and hammer); marine plywood (base, wheel, handle); Stainless Steel (Main lever, mounting pins, gear spring); Rubber (non-slip heels)
Description: Aladino uses a powerful double lever system: just turn the hammer and choose between two sizes: one bigger (for nuts) and one smaller (for hazelnuts, for example). The mechanism is balanced by a steel spring, holding the lever in place and keeping it always loaded and ready to be used.
Aladino is a kitchen appliance by nature, but its idiosyncratic style makes it a beauty to look at and a great addition to every room. Each one is completely handmade. Aladino is a distinctive gift idea, and with his stylish packaging it becomes really unique. It is available in 5 different versions & colors.
Finishes: Beeswax (plain version); water paint (colored version).
It’s just beautiful! This wonderful handmade nut cracker joins both practical and aesthetic values. I’m very proud of having one at home. Highly recommended.

A pleasure for the eyes as well as for its easy of use !
Design, funny and very practical at the same time, and no risks for the children’s little fingers… What else would you ask ?
Aladino attracts everyone entering the room, but no one guesses it’s a nutcracker until you tell it :-).
Thank you to have had the idea of making such an original object, and congratulations on your creativeness and imagination!
