I've also heard of (but not tried myself) of people soaking the foam in water and freezing it, and then drilling into it (to make a foam prefilter or something similar).
I have used an electric knife for cutting foam before it works well. I have also just used a regular knife and a pair of sizzlers and had decent luck.
