I just got both of my nuts. Very happy with them, thank you! I'm not sure if it's just me, but the TianYue Lab case they come in (which I should add was a very nice touch) smells as if it's toxic. I can't describe the smell other than to say that when I smell it, I fear it might cause cancer. That is, of course a hyperbole, but the smell is unbearable.

Likewise, two nuts smelling funny.

Oh well, they are still useful...right?

The smelling should come from the Eva foam and packaging bag, since there are all fresh made by factory lol

Got mine, no smell, thankfully.

But it's the wrong type! My invoice states MX, and this is for Kailh switches.

I've just received the package. The openers work as described, nice anodising too. My Kailh nutcracker was supposed to be blue. I received a silver one instead. Nevermind it's all good. They are excellent tools. Thanks, Ilouis.

No worries. I don't mind having 2 silver openers. I'll buy more when you do the 3rd round :)

I also didn't get tracking. They showed up.

I was in group 2 priority.

Hi batch 2 priority and batch 2 we havenít ship much yet, the blue color nutcracker has color difference for top and bottom parts, so we asked factory to redo that batch, it should finish between 18th to 20th Jan.

We printed out shipping label for faster shipment but however we faced some QC problems last last week, so far issue already fixed and we can wait for the final shipment by 20th. (Around 20th)

Received mine earlier this week and had some fun cracking and lubing switches tonight. Nutcracker is the perfect tool for the job, worked exactly as expected. They look sooo nice too, MUCH nicer than any other switch opener Iíve ever seen.

Now just gotta wait for my Gsus switches to arrive to make some Holy Gsus!!

Thanks again Louis for a great product and a well run GB :D

Got mine (USA, Oregon). Agree the case smelled horrible (tossed it) but the nutcracker itself is fine. Definitely works well for getting the tops off switches, though I notice the bottom housing of the switch gets stuck in the nutcracker and can be quite hard to extricate. Overall certainly faster than my switch top remover from mechanicalkeyboards.com, but I sort of wish the longer teeth that hold the bottom housing were a tiny bit shorter and not quite as tight. (FYI I'm currently using this with Zilents and Healios, so it's possibly not a problem with other switches.)

Hi, good to hear that! But I can share some tips on how does nutcracker works, YouTube link:

Hahaha, well, if it doesnít have this grid/lock, some of MX style switches canít open. That is the purpose here:) but looks like we can do something here in the future works.

I have come up with a possible improvement. The bottom can sit a bit tight. How about a button on the bottom that you would press to push the switch out.
Maybe that button could be a simple carriage bolt, with spring, washer and nut. The insides may need to be modified a bit though.
