Keschtnriggl








The "Keschtnriggl" is an old tool to peel the roasted chestnuts.

Here an overdimensioned "Keschtnriggl", exposed in a park in Völlan / Foiana - Adige Valley.

  2. A really curious device, I wonder if we have something similar in Tuscany and how it is called...

  3. I'm glad you explained what this is. Seems a bit large for a wee chestnut, though! :) I tried to pronounce the name and my mouth got so twisted that I could speak for 30 minutes. My wife appreciated that! :)

  7. This tool is new to me, but that's not surprising as the chestnut tree has been lost to the North American continent. Still it works well as a piece of sculpture.
