Completely 3D printed from steel, the matte black Torq cracks walnuts with ease. Just place them in the concavity marked by the design detail and twist the key down. Like a vice grip, it slowly begins exerting pressure on the nut, finally cracking it (without bursting it open like other nutcrackers). What I find truly remarkable about the Torq is its production process. 3D printing isn’t the most ideal process for parts that withstand load or stress, but the Torq does so with ease.
