I keep a couple tools on hand for tad extracting. Periodically I use a razor, but my favorite tools are a few kinds of dental probes. Some have hooks and some have cutting edges on the hook portion. You really need to find the one for your liking. Once you have done that, aiding tads in their egg exiting can be fairly quick. I use two, one to hold the egg and one to make incisions. The incision I try to make in front of the tad's head. Then I hook the the egg near the tads tail and pull slowly. Many time the tad propels itself right out of the egg.
