I use an Xacto knife to cut the seal.

Card college DVD, and I'm pretty sure book vol 1, has a short section on how to elegantly open a deck of cards.

You just take the knife and cut around the outline of the flap. Just watch the video again that I posted, it's fairly simple and easy to understand.

I start with whipping out a switchblade, then the cards. It always gets their attention.
SHAZAM!

I use a more traditional xacto knife with a v-shaped blade. A pen knife also works.
