I wonder how they do this!

I've often wondered how they manage to cut these even-sized pieces of coconut! 
I suppose there is a certain technique and technology involved, definitely more sophisticated than my smashing the coconut on the kitchen balcony floor, with a bowl at hand to save the coconut water in!
After which I struggle with the broken pieces and a sharp knife.

One of the myriad things I do not understand...........

Freeze the coconut whole and then break the shell off with a hammer. The meat inside will be like a ball and the water slightly frozen (nothing that our Indian weather can take care of in minutes). Then you can cut it with a knife!
