Coconut shells are tough and can be very difficult to open. Fresh coconuts straight from the tree have a softer shell and can be opened by a sharp blow with a large knife. But the coconuts sold in most grocery stores are older and have much harder shells. The easiest way to open one of these coconuts is to brace it in a corner and strike it with a hammer. The force to break the shell may be substantial, so choose a corner that will not be harmed. Your kitchen countertop may not be the best place to do this.
