Hi. Oddball question I know but here goes.

If you really wanted to actively try to get a knife to wedge what vegetable (or anything else) would you pick? I've been working on carrots but I'm thinking I want to try something tougher as a test. Maybe a turnip?

Not interested in killing my blade so coconuts are out of the question......

Would it matter whether I tried sweet potatoes or yams? The former are very hard for me to come by for some reason.

I've never worked with butternut squash before but it's a family favorite -- possible. How about spaghetti squash?

Rutabega.... hmmm.....

Hard to find sometimes, but young green papaya (not sweet/Hawaiian papaya). Shit is a wedge machine. Similar to some squashes like butternut etc. in consistency of fruit though I find it grabs a little more when under-ripe.

+1 to the spaghetti squash that Robstreperos mentioned. I cut one up last night and it was one " tough mother", harder skin than acorn or butternut squash. BB
