Crab leg question

Lanyboy | Mar 22, 2005 12:24 PM

Costco had some beauties for sale @ $13.99 lb.
I was tempted but had a dilemma. What is the best way to precut the shells to make eating then easier and neater.
In restaurants they are pre split maybe with some type of saw. How would you do this at home. Furthermore, should you cut the shell before cooking? I imagine of this is doen while cold, it would be a little kinder on your hands.
