Separating long, thin piece of resin from carrier

I have a resin bumper set for the LWS and I'm a bit uncertain about how to go about separating the parts from the carriers. My experience with resin parts is pretty much limited to heads and figures, and given their compact and sturdy shapes, they've never presented a problem. These bumpers, however, long and thin as they are, are another matter entirely. The instructions call for repeated scribing with a sharp knife until they snap off, and, while that would be exactly what I would do with heads or the like, with these pieces I'm not so sure. I need advice. Thanks guys.

#11 Xacto

I use a #11 Axacto blade and slowly score the seam you are cutting. Do not try to cut all at once. Just keep scoring it till it goes through.
Good luck
