Practical knife for watermelons (with soft handle) from $2.25
To good weather and sunshine they are somehow part of it. This knife for watermelons is now available in an “improved” version, with a softer handle and better cutting ability. There is also this melon slicer, which cuts the whole fruit into handy pieces.

After all the enthusiasm the experiences with the first version of this gadget were not really positive. Many buyers report sharp edges and an overall not well processed tool. This version is still available for about $2. But it seems to be different with the new models, which have a rubberized handle. It no longer cuts unpleasantly into the hand and offers a better grip. On the AliExpress models, the handle is made of plastic.
By the way, we can still argue about the name: Is it a knife, pliers or a scraper? Somehow a little of everything. It is quite obvious how the individual pieces are cut; however, the small connecting piece at the end of the tongs, through which the pieces can be cut out, can be easily overlooked. The pieces are then simply removed using the gadget’s gripping function. Serving watermelons in practical pieces has never been easier.
The gadget is made of stainless steel or, more rarely, stainless plastic. A final advantage: You don’t have to cut the melon into pieces, but simply hollow it out, and you can use it afterwards, for example as a stylish hat:
Besides this, there is also another gadget, with which watermelons can be divided in an easy way. With this kitchen tool with a total of 12 metal struts, the whole melon is directly cut into just as many pieces. That’s probably the fastest way to get the fruit served. How good this really is is once again due to the workmanship. So far there have only been a few reviews.
As you can see, both hands have to be used. And of course some people want melons as big as possible, but at a certain point it is just too much to process them effectively. The inner diameter of this tool is about 24 cm, so the maximum fruit size is allowed.
Especially with the cheap China version I’m a little sceptical about the quality. In order to divide the watermelon, some effort might be necessary. Will the blades last in the long run? Has anyone here had any experience with the knife?
