A-B) Corn splitter looks just like the handle of a common kitchen knife, except no blade protrudes from the end. A slit runs halfway down the "handle" and had a metal blade between it. The blade has saw-like teeth, but does not extend beyond the dimensions of the handle except for the teeth which protrude 2mm from the surface. A string at the end of the slit portion of the handle keeps the two sides together thereby also keeping the blade inside. A is larger.
