        Get a pair of metal snips and cut them as close as you can to the edge of the die. I snip off the extra parts over a trash can. I grind my points all the way down after that with a dremmel tool but they can be expensive. You can find them at Amazon

        I use my husband's metal cutter/snips. It has yellow handles - he bought it at Lowe's. I think the brand is Wiss. It's kind of big, but it works really well for me.

        You can get a cheap pare of Hakko CHP-170 flush cutters on Amazon for around $4 or $5. They cut well. As Vfinger said, try to get as close to the edge as possible. If you still feel a burr on the die, I use a cheap set of needle files from Harbor Freight to file them down. You can also you a nail file or emery board. Ever sand paper can help.
