    I wouldn't trust me as a surgeon, I can't even play operation very well..but trimming paper, cleaning hairs off sensors, cutting cable ties, opening those darn plastic blister packs, and trimming cue tips, just a few of the new things you will be introduced to after joining the wonderful world of the scalpel!

              I never get tips splitting on me and i cut every one i ever do, however i dont cut down on the tip straight away as i feel this puts too much pressure on the layers, i find having the cue standing as if ready to chalk it hold the blade at a 45degree angle against the tip like / that, spin the cue so you are trimming from the base outwards, once you get the base flush to the ferrule then you can turn it upside down and cut through it easy enough, i use this technique on talismans, kamuis, mooris, tiger and phoenix tips, as i said i've never had one split.

                  I usually dont trim my tips yet have had a high percentage of layered tips delaminate some quicker than others . I know my club table has some bearing on this as its slow so you have to punch a lot of shots , maybe the overhang has something to do with it aswell as there is no support for the last mm or so of the tip .

                      Yeah pretty much exactly like that except for the sandpaper on the ferrule! Keep it well away from the brass! Otherwise your 9.5 tip will soon be 9mm!

                        yes, i have a couple of old cues that started out as 9.5mm but are now 9mm.
                        When i started doing my own tips i thought it was impossible to sand down brass with just sand paper, it's suprising how quickly you can ruin a ferrule.

                          Recently I've had three talismans split
                          about two layers up all from the same
                          packet so I assume the same batch
                          So I would say there is possibly something
                          in this.
                          I've not fitted them any different to usual
                          and all split in the same way after half an hours use
                          The only laminated tips I've never had any split
                          Are kamui, omin, & moori. the o min tips are supposedly
                          Made by talisman, so don't understand why they
                          are ok but the tallys not
                          Quality control I guess. I would say that this problem
                          seems more common recently.

                            got some scalpel blades and a retractable handle through the post yesterday. tried it out on a couple of elk masters and they both turned out perfect, still firm with no spongyness at all. I had given up on elk masters because they kept turning out spongy after i had trimmed them.
                            the scalpel is better than the stanley blades, cuts through the tip easier, and two elk masters turning out perfect can't be luck.
                            100 blades are pretty cheap too, they will last a long time
