I've had reasonable luck at clean breaks by laying it on it's
edge (edge meaning along the glue seam), placing something
like a butter knife (putty knife, etc) and applying pressure
with a small hammer, in the manner of pressure-chipping stone
knives. A series of little >crack< to the glue seam for the
entire circumference, once or twice around.
