scarifying or chitting

Just for anyone's amusement.  I have found the best way to do this on many 
seeds is to use a dog nail trimmer.  It has an adjustable base plate with the 
scissor blade crossing over the top of the base plate where it does a good job 
of nicking the seed.  A friend of mine uses her teeth to nick the seed, but not 
to trim the dogs nails.
