    I’ve used bone cutters and the bandsaw. Bandsaw is much cleaner and a lot less damage to the tissue.

    bone cutters. I find that the issue with fragging chalices is almost always it causes internal structural damage to the coral, so you have to be extremely delicate when gluing and handling the frags

    He wants to cut coral. Not his hands.

    I score the flesh with a blade then cut with a bandsaw.
