Scalpels are what I use on Bones now. It's insane how much difference there is between a scalpel sharpness and X-Acto sharpness. The usual disclaimers apply. With the added sharpness it becomes so much easier to seriously injure yourself, so if you try this please take all necessary precautions. Don't ask me how I know this.

Gently heat Bones with a hair dryer set for a hottish temperature. Do not warm it for TOO long, but enough to soften the plastic.

Put on cutting mat or board. 

Cut with X-Acto or similar tool. Easier than cheddar.

Loim is correct about scalpels; durn near took a finger off with one when a plastic figure proved stubborn.

Wait, you heat the figure and not the knife? Have I been a complete newbie by heating my exacto like I'm cauterizing a wound?
