using a utility knife with a fresh blade is the best way I know of.

Good luck

Have a pice of plywood on the floor and a small piece of 2X4 handy. Determine where you want to cut the insulation and lay the 2x4 on that line. Lean down and put pressure on the 2X4 to compress the insulation. Cut the compressed insulation along the 2X4. This method makes the job a lot easier.
