Crispbread (knekkebrød, knäckebröd or knækbrød depending on your favourite Scandinavian country) knobbly rolling pin (Kruskavel) is ideal for dimpling your Scandinavian crispbread. Simply roll across the dough.

If you are making a fair amount of it, a knobbly rolling pin (a Kruskavel) is what you need.
