Cutting thick felt

A wool felt (100% wool) pad buckles upward on one horse's back. It needs a long channel removed from the middle so it will lay down, not up. The pad is too long for a short back and needs to be trimmed to fit a round skirt. Does anyone have experience in cutting thick felt so it doesn't look butchered?

It can be done with a box cutter or other similar razor sharp knife.

I've never done enough of it to gain any proficiency though, mine always just looked like a kid did it LOL.

If you're able to get it done, though, you might want to consider sewing a square of heavy canvas or something over the split in the middle to make sure it stays together like it's supposed to.
