It is said that the first Seiffen nutcrackers, which are today known all over the
world, were made around 1870 in Wilhelm Füchtner's little workshop and since then,
nothing in their basic design has been changed, until 2001 when another maker placed
two metal plates in the mouth to help crack nuts.

Nutcracker in red or blue.
