Best way to scrape away gills on a portobello mushroom?

Should I cut it away with a knife? Can you scrape with a dull spoon? Is there something marketed out there?

Update:

I could say I find them bitter. The truth is however I find them disturbing to look at.

    The gills are black. Some recipes call for removal of the gill to prevent coloring of the dish. Use an ordinary spoon to scoop out the gills.

    I use a spoon when a recipe calls for their removal.

    Why would you do that? It's part of the mushroom and a lot of flavour comes from there. Do you peel your potatoes too?
