The Steinbach family started making nutcrackers and other items in the 1800s in the Alpine regions of Germany. Each Steinbach nutcracker is produced using up to 130 separate procedures. Genuine hardwood is cut and shaped into specific sizes and parts. The wood is then turned by hand, using an ancient process that creates smooth, clean surfaces.
