I use a sharp paring knife.

Take kiwi fruit and cut off a bit from the bottom.

Place on cutting surface.

Carefully cut off skin with a very sharp knife.

At least that is the way that works for me.

Like Aunt Dot says .
Take kiwi cut off both narrow ends set one end on board or counter carefully go from top end and slide knife in a curve down to the bottom.
This is the same way you would do a cantalope cut in half and scoop out seeds then slice how you like

kiwi fruit

I must be taught differently - I have never peeled a kiwi fruit.

1. slice the kiwi fruit in half around it's "equator"
2. Take a spoon* with a bowl approx the size of the kiwi fruit - I have an vintage tablespoon inherited from my MIL that I use
3. slide the spoon between the flesh and the peel - scoop the fruit out of the peel in a wrist twisting motion - preferably in one piece
4. slice as required

*there are lots of spoons around: select on that has depth and not too shallow in the bowl shape.

I'm glad I came upon this site. Now, let's make it more difficult. How about star fruit!

That's easy. Don't. There's no need. Just slice cross-ways into stars and eat.

I don't think star fruit needs to be peeled does it?

I do the equator trick - you can also slice them the long way and scoop them out like an avacado. They can also be peeled with a spoon ... hold it in your palm and scrape the skin off with the edge of your spoon. Kind of like using a paring knife but a little less dangerous.
