Carved Knives and Nut Crackers of Gujarat

Craft Revival Trust

Areca/ betel nut accessories like nut-crackers and knives are some of the accessories and functional items which grew around the paan-supari culture in India. This tradition, going back at least 2,000 recorded years, continues till today. The betel nut is ingested for a variety of reasons: it is a digestive, it has medicinal properties, and it is also chewed for pleasure. Betel-nut accessories include metallic spittoons, trays, nut-crackers, and lime boxes.
