You can do this way if you can't find a knife!

Step 2: #1

Take a coin and scratch around the watermelon rind.

Try to use a big and narrow coin!

Step 3: #2

Hit it on the scratched line with your hand, hammer, log etc.

    try a buzz saw

    You do realise that coins are some the the dirtiest objects in the world?

    Cool intructable! You can also do this with any plastic card you happen
    to have in your wallet (think of customer loyalty cards, credit cards
    etc.) I thought of this when I was in Madrid a couple of years back and
    found myself with a wedge of water melon, but without a knife.


    Thank you for sharing this it is nice to know there are easy solutions I would not have thought of this so I appreciate all the work you did in placing these instructions..

    A coin is kind of small. Lottsa work.

    How about a hub cap?

    Thanks :) it's worth to try ;)
