We generally for all dry & brittle blocks especially bloody blocks soak
them in very cold water for a few minutes, we have found this to be much
better than soaking in warm water as you don't get ice forming on the

Subject: [Histonet] A different way to cut??
I have a new co-worker that has a different way of cutting, he professes
that it is the new and improved way but we're unsure and wondering if
anyone else has experience on this way. He faces into the block, places the
block (not section) into a 42 degree waterbath for a few minutes, then into
crushing ice for a few minutes, sprays the block with Frostbite and then
obtains his section. Are we just too old school? This seems like a lot of
work and hassle.
