A coconut opener is a tool specifically designed to open coconuts. It typically consists of a pointed tip and a handle. The pointed tip is used to puncture the coconut husk, which is a dark green cover on the top of the coconut. The handle is then used to twist the tool and open the hole, allowing the coconut’s water to drain out. Some coconut openers also have a blade attached, which can be used to remove the coconut’s meat from the shell. These tools can be manual or electric and they are designed to make it easy to open the coconut and get the meat out of it.

These tools are commonly used by chefs, vendors, and local sellers, as well as by individuals who enjoy the taste of fresh coconut at home.
