    Default Best way to crack open a coconut using items found in the average home

    I am buggered if I can work this one out. I've seen people in foreign climes do it with huge machetes, but I don't have much call for a machete here so I don't own one. I've tried the kitchen knife, which was borderline dangerous, and the corkscrew, which was just totally ineffective. I put all my weight on it trying to crack it, but it wouldn't give a bit.

    I'm about to resort to the vice and hammer drill, but does anyone have any better ideas?

    Your own head + camcorder + Youtube = near-instant profit.

    (Well, maybe not 'profit', but a good giggle for us and fifteen seconds of fame for you.)

    Cheers guys.

    To anyone that doesn't have hardware tools handy, I can report that slamdunking it into the pavement outside your house gets pretty good results too.

    best way is to tie it in a tea-towel and then smash it on the floor.

    Also a good tip for fixing a frozen phone.
