    What are you wanting to frag? There are different techniques for different types of coral. Most soft corals can be sliced with a razor - but there are certain ways to cut them. Most LPS can be broken in twain at certain junctions and most SPS corals can be cut with bone shears and glued to plugs... there's also different mounting techniques for different corals.
    May I suggest reading a good book on the subject... : Coral Propagation by Anthony Calfo
    If you had a specific coral in mind, it would make answering the question a little easier.

    I'm not sure where the OP is from, but if you are within driving distance from Pittsburgh, PA, Anthony Calfo, Steve Pro, and others will be doing their yearly demonstration of fragging technique at our local reef club. Last year they covered most of the major types of corals and our reef club members have kept us up to date as how their frags were doing.
