Open a coconut with a large machete

Learn how to open a coconut and impress your friends. 1. With one hand, steady the coconut at the rounded end and tilt the opposite end downward. 2. Using a very sharp, large knife/machete in your other hand, hack at the pointier end of the coconut at a sharp angle. 3. Slowly decrease the angle of the coconut to create a notch in the husk. 4. Repeat this process to create a larger and larger notch in the husk until you have penetrated the husk and can access the inner fruit. 5. Use a slender, rigid instrument (like a knife sharpener) to pry the husk from the fruit.
