Many years ago I gathered pine nuts with my grandfather, and he put
them on a bit of cement and hit them "just so" with an ordinary
hammer.  There was a proportion of bounces when the blow was too
light; and a small proportion of failures, resulting in crushed
nut neat, when the blow was too hard or not 'pulled' in exactly
the right way.
