    You could make that knife from a $15 saw, but why would you? Old Hickory, anyone?
    Or with a lawn mower blade!

    Yes, you really need a watermelon knife, but no need to pay that amount for it. Old Hickory makes one for $10.00 and I guarantee it is a heck of alot better than that one.

    It can also double as a really big nakiri.

    I guess one could use this 31" machete for a watermelon knife. It is certainly big enough. $65 on etsy.

    I think you'd probably get arrested if you bring that around in Singapore.

    That just means you need a bigger block!
