If you heat them up they might cut like butter, it didn't cut that well on my shell. Sure as **** cut me up pretty good though.

heating the blade up will make it able to cut right through the shell and webbing, so if your just trying to shave the webbing be careful because it will melt right through the shell. You wont be able to get all the webbing off with just the knife...so be prepared to sand some

the best thing for cutting pieces of the plastic is a dremel, but if all you have is an exacto knife then heat it up good and make your cuts...it will be fairly difficult because the plastic is thick, but you will get it done if your determined

peircing through the plastic is the hardest part, if u have a sharp exacto knife and plenty of other blades it should go smoothly.

it would work about the same as the xacto, probably a little less effective because the xacto would have less surface area and would be easier to push through the shell....if your cutting the shell using these tools, you would have to heat them up and it would be more like melting the shell to make cuts...you could try to saw it with the serated knife or a hacksaw but i think you would be better off with a heated blade
