For opening a coconut, this is the method I usually use: http://www.howtoopenacoconut... If, after opening the coconut, you still have trouble releasing the meat from the shell, you can place the pieces of coconut on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.

we always open the coconut like this and we participated a video show at CIA NAPA long back with the food writer Janet Fletcher

Power drill and a kitchen towel.

PaulJoseph's method is the only way. Chef's knife is one of the greatest investments ever.
