Hold the corn so you can stick a corn cob holder in the top. Holding it in place with the corn cob holder take a sharp knife and cut downward. Turn the corn as you cut it so you get the most of the corn from the cob.
Voila! you have fresh corn with out burning your fingers.

Really good tip! I do mine in a large deep bowl instead of on a plate so the kernels don't go flying everywhere for me to have to chase down though. They seem to fly no matter how sharp the knife. ;-)
