I have always just used a sharp knife. Hold the cue vertically - tip downwards - and press firmly onto a solid surface. Then trim the tip using downward cuts. I have found that as long as my knife is sharp and I am pressing the cue down quite hard (in effect squeezing the tip between the ferule and your workbench), I do not have any delamination problems.

All this new fangled fancy stuff....
Same here. Works fine and does not take long.
