Tip for slicing a soft tomato with a subpar knife

While looking up a 1996 Cooks Illustrated recipe, I noticed a hint for easier slicing of tomatoes. Peel a narrow strip, 1/2" wide or so, from the stem end to the other end. Then hold the tomato on its side, with the stripped area uppermost. That way, the knife goes into the tomato with very little pressure, a good idea if you find yourself lacking a well-sharpened blade.
