    This one might be even more dangerous than the coconut husking tool in the first post.

    yep that really looks safe plunging a 10 lb mass down on a Bowie knife embedded to the hilt pointed end up then repeat several timed until you find the kernel all while avoiding impaling your hands on the blade.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    This is what i had to do as a kid when my mom wanted shredded coconut to make fresh coconut milk. Rather easy. I have one now but its on a straight board that you sit on.

    As to the spike, thats how i saw the islanders do it when i was a kid and its how i learned to do it. But in most cases, they buried a piece of hardwood that was sharpened but not to that sharp of a point. Only saw a few using metal but they were not like that. Many buried a pipe and then installed the spike when needed. Kinda dangerous when kids are running around. But one can easily open a coconut with a machete.
