Default Any idea how to cut an ostrich egg in half?

Yes I was thinking that.

I'm not sure where you would get either egg these days anyway.

Emu eggs are still available here, but more restricted than they once were.

You might need to shell out a lot for an Eggcelent cutting tool nowadays.

I'd have you publicly flogged for that if you hadn't
so obviously enjoyed that the last time. And donít
try claiming that we cant flog the blind either.

The egg, I'm using an Emu egg, is thicker and stronger than you think.
An Ostrich egg is probably stronger (think of what's inside and has to
be contained). I've used a VERY fine tooth saw or a Dremel Cutting tool
on LOW speed. The egg MUST be Secured to avoid uneven cut.

I'm making Faberge Egg replicas for Christmas presents this year using
EMU Eggs.

Given that it was 15 years ago, you are just a tad late.
