In the picture posted above, I cut away the shell of the pecan, which is a hard wood. The nut has no coating on it.
Sorry for the derail, just commenting on Michaels post about cutting the ends off ripe pecans, which I assumed was the shell. I can't think of a reason to cut the end off the nut.
There's only 1 small rural community on earth I've ever known anyone to hull pecans this way, a place my Dad was born and grew up in. I got it from him.

We have pecans all over the place and there is no way you can cut the shell off with a knife. Maybe you have some kind of newfangled pecans.
Natives have the hardest and thickest shells. Those are the ones that have to be cut away to get whole nuts.
Yes, I do it all the time.
