Cook like a Viking - mortar and pestle
I love kitchen tools . . . just for decoration, since I, sadly, do not know how to cook. But I do love to crush things, don't ask me why. Give me some nutmeg or vanilla beans or mustard seeds, and I'll turn them into a fine dust with my mortar and pestle (even if a fine dust isn't what you asked for).
If I had this Viking Mortar and Pestle from Drinkstuff.com, it could get ridiculous. I find the shape of the pestle kind of beautiful, but it actually has an ergonomic purpose - it fits more naturally in your hand. The mortar is made of beechwood, which contrasts nicely with the silvery pestle.
Priced at $65 Euroes (about $100).
