Women are like pumpkins; you search and search for the perfect one, bring it home, and the next thing you know, you're looking for a knife.

I imagine millions of pumpkins are killed

A:) Not every scientist or doctor on the planet is a cancer specialist.

B:) Since they started making the pumpkin carving sets, I would bet that there have been a LOT fewer accidents, since people started using tools designed for the task, rather than the biggest butcher knife in the kitchen drawer.

The best tool to use is a sheetrock keyhole saw

Cut it out.
Make it look nice.
Put a candle in it.

The doctors seem to be slacking off on using the candle on cancer. Maybe that's the missing step.

It's what you do when you don't plan ahead, so you have to put someone in the first compromising position that comes to mind.

A demel works best. That's how all the really fancy stuff gets done. With farking power tools.

A dremel works... if you like pumpkin sprayed all over your living room.

Im rather partial to that new battery operated pumpkin knife. Cut a 3-4 hour job down to about an hour for me last year.

sweet! thanks for sharing that. did not know about.

for years i used an electric carving knife to cut up foam inserts pinched from discarded sofa cushions to safely ship fragiles sold on eBay. finally the thought of handling other peoples fart soaked arse cushions made me stop recycling pieces of old sofas.

That's basically what you get in your standard issue grocery kit:

Okay, I'll say it... "Why the War on Halloween?"

Seriously... If you don't know how to handle a knife safely, you have no business carving a pumpkin. Period. There are TONS of places besides right behind the farking knife to put your hand that are not only safer, but offer you better control of the pumpkin. Like...umm...I dunno...grabbing it by the lip of the lid hole?

Local dive shop used to sponsor an under water pumpkin carving competition. If someone as uncoordinated as me can carve a pumpkin at the bottom of an inlet then it can't be that dangerous.

Recipricating saw,
Jig saw,
Router and
Safety Glasses

Dremile maybe if you're doing fine detail.
