If you give him a nice spray to clear his body of substrate, and move him to a cup in his environment, he will associate the routine and you with getting fed. It will not be stressful if you do the same routine every time. Later you can forcep feed and he will eat more cleanly with some finesse on your part, and a flat slate or tile piece at the mouth of his den accommodates feeding as well.

Ive always prefered to size food items or use thawed with forceps. Freezing for a month or so can kill parasites, but crawlers are very loopy and goopy after thawing.

If you must cut them alive, a very sharp pair of shears will be quicker and thus perhaps kinder than a knife.
