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

Yes we will sell for a good price on the black market cos all we see is
black. Actually that is not the case but it was just too tempting.

Public flogged, How do you know we might not enjoy it? It takes all sorts.
At least I did not suggest you sawed the whole Ostrich in half then the egg
would be softer and you could eat well for a few days.

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

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.
