I haven’t had the chance to use them yet as we’re just now gathering nuts. Handling them and inspecting then they appear to be top quality. If an issue should arise I would assume it would be due to operator misuse . Having watched the video I hope to avoid that problem. The delivery time of these and the Goody machine and ease of ordering and professional educational videos make this purchase exceptional! I like that it is made in America!
Best Black Walnut Cracker
We have been loving this handy gadget! We've tried others and none work like this one.
Haven't opened the box yet, as Walnut season is two months away and have been busy with other harvesting. Happy to write a review once I try them out!
Worked well, made a mess, the very tips of the shears broke off, still work fine though.
This thing is great when cracking black walnuts.
It couldn’t be better.
The shears came with the grandpa’s goody getter and I ordered a extra pair they work great but if you are doing a lot of black walnuts get extra. I’m going to order 6 more they work great
Love these things, sharp and well-sized, and supremely helpful. Highly recommend.
Easy way to cut around the inner shell.
Best Christmas gift combo of 2022!
We purchased this and Grandpa’s Goodie Getter. It is amazing that the full walnut can come out in perfect condition. Our kids love helping with the process. What a fun invention. These shears are great too. My husband was more excited about this gift combo than anything else he was given.
When we ordered the splitter we also got the sheers. Two sheers were delivered with everything and glad . My fiancee apparently was trying to nip thicker parts and broke one. Live and learn really as she was trying to nip too thick of a section of the black walnut. They work great though. I'll have to sometime post a pic of the table I made for the splitter for others to see how I set everything up.
Nip in time
These were the cat's pajamas! they work great! This is my first time harvesting Black Walnuts. The Shear is a great little tool. I'm looking forward to next year!
Just be sure to do it outside, and maybe wear safety glasses- pieces shoot all over the place, and they hurt to step on!
Super handy, order a few pairs
These are extremely handy for breaking out those last little bits of shell to free the nut meats! The tip of the blade did snap off of one of my pairs after only about 5 sessions using them. I don't know if it was a faulty pair or just a particularly hard bit of shell that got them. Worth ordering some extras so your nut processing isn't stalled.
Thiese snips with Grandpa Gooudy Getter make shelling an enjoyable experience resulting in my harvesting 17 pounds of nut meat
These are a must especially with HARD shelled nuts!!
That shear is a fantastic tool. I wish that I would have been able to get one for my father many years ago.
Hi Dennis, Awesome, nut cracker and the shears just made nut season so much easer and less TIME consuming, the shears are just what you need, to get the hard to gets!! I’m really happy with your products. Thanks Felix Utter
I received one pair with the goodie getter and ordered two more shortly after that and now the six pack. My only problem is the tips break off. Other than that I really like the way they make harvesting meats from black walnuts.
This is the perfect tool for getting more out of the shell of black walnuts.
