Introduction: Split an Apple With One Finger!
Ever wanted to split an apple with someone, but wanted to do it in an impressive way? Probably not, but this is still a pretty cool way to split an apple. Make sure you tell a big story about how you were trained as a samurai in the ancient art of fingerjitsu when you split it too!

Step 1: Prep the Apple
For this step you will need to wash the apple and your hands. Just run the apple under water for a bit and dry it off. Next, firmly grip the stem and twist until it comes out.
Step 2: Break the Apple
This is the step where the magic happens. After you've told a big story, it's time to show off your moves. Place your index finger on the apple as shown. Make a fist with your other hand. Line up your hands as shown on the apple, and repeatedly hammer your finger into the apple with your fist. To properly do this, you must imagine yourself forcefully pushing your finger through the apple. The key is to not hit your finger many times quickly, but to use a few, strong blows to break the apple in half as shown in the last step. Depending on your apple, this cut may be clean, or not, as it was in my case. With a good apple, you should see that the seed chamber is split almost perfectly in half.
Step 3: Serve the Apple
Now that you have shown how skilled you are, it is ok to get a knife out to cut the apple. First cut the halves into quarters, then cut out the core as shown. You can then cut the quarters into slices of your preferred thickness, and serve to your friends in a bowl (or eat them yourself.)
