So easy just follow the pics...

Don't be afraid to really hit it. The more force you use the cleaner the cut, I have found. Scoring first is not necessary (except for Exoticas, I found they always cut uneven if you don't score first). Enjoy.

I've also found that after scoring them, a flathead screwdriver works good to use to hit with the hammer

Prepping a hookah is like masterbation, different strokes for different folks but we all usually end up with the same result. Giant amounts of white stuff.

I light them up, put them in the coal carrier and use the metal stick on my tongs to hit it once in the middle and it splits perfect every time. Also if it doest split first time it usually means the coals are not properly lit.. I hate trying to cut them its so difficult.

Yes, thanks for this thread. Just getting into nats, got my first box of coco's today. Just split one using this method, worked perfectly. Hookah isn't here yet, so I lit two halfes anyways just to test em out. So far, i'm impressed as hell.

How much does whacking your knife with a hammer screw up your knife?

In Farsi, nargil means coconut and shisheh means glass. Just thought I'd throw it in there.

I just went through and cut a half a box of cocos, knife seems fine so far.

Just use an old knife if you're worried about it.

I do something similar to Incubusratm's method, but I don't usually have a hammer around in the kitchen. I just use a butter knife and a can opener, though one of the more hefty can openers. I don't score the coals at all, unless exoticas. I just place the butter knife on the coco and whack it with the flat edge of the can opener, and the coco splits just fine. Another plus is that you don't have to worry about dulling the butter knife because, well it's a butter knife. When I get some spare time, I intend on making a small guillotine type device with a weight on it, which will be devoted to splitting coals.

Yeah, any heavy/blunt object will work for striking the knife. The steak knife I use is one I do not care about... Guess I should've mentioned that in my original post- do NOT use a good knife that you care about. Anyways, when you get your coal-splitting device up and running, post pics of it on here!
