It would be good for walnuts. It does not take that much force to crack a walnut, so it is not quite as dangerous as they portray. Still, best not have live grenades lying around.

Connie Chung can crack walnuts in her hand. She did it on Letterman back when she and Letterman were somebodies. I think it's on YouTube.
