Cutting filati is very simple. Lay your filati on a flat work surface. Using the diamond file, you make a light score line across the filati. You don't have to press hard to make the score, and it does not need to be scored all the way across or around the piece.
Once you have created the score line, position your thumbs and forefingers of each hand on each side of the score, with the score facing up between your thumbs. Apply gentle pressure to snap it at the score.
