Chestnut Knife

In my family, roasted chestnuts have always been a holiday tradition. But the little devils are hard to get into. Before roasting, you have to make an "x" on the flat side of the nut. When roasted, the heat causes the shell to burst open, making it easier to shell them.

If there's a chestnut lover in your family who is hard to shop for, a chestnut knife might be a wonderful surprise. They run about $10.95 and make a difficult chore much easier since they have a hook on the end that's designed to get into those tough shells. http://www.chefsresource.com/lamson-knives-tools.html
