Sharp, Quick, Bare-handed

A few weeks ago I wrote about my admiration for the way coconut vendors use the outside shell of a coconut to create a spoon for scraping the flesh out of the center.  In that post I remarked about the speed and deftness that slicing these coconuts entails, and here is a post to illustrate what I mean.

Step 1: Carefully cutting the top off the coconut to let you drink the juice.

Step 2: Cutting the coconut in half and making a spoon to let you eat the flesh.
