Anyone in the UK managed to pop open their mini yet?

I cant find a putty knife thin enough to do it. Does anyone know where i can get one?

I tried my local B&Q, which ironically is one of the biggest in Europe, yet didnt have one thin enough. Stupid B&Q :)

There are two types of putty knife - "flexible" and "stiff", get the flexible one, and then hone down the edge with sandpaper to make a sharp enough tip. If you can bend the blade and inch with a thumb and forefinger, it's flexible enough.

I've had mine open!

...B&Q's 'putty knife' has a sharp point, so I wouldn't use that. I bought a flexible filler spreader thing and used sandpaper to sharpen the tip - worked great.
