Rest the needle against your thumb, using it as a lever the slice the needle through the flesh of the banana. You will have to vary the depth of the needle so you don't slice through the skin. You will be able feel, and possibly hear, the needle scrape against the inside of the skin. Cut the whole banana into slices in this way, being careful not to stab yourself with the needle.
