I usually just slip my bottom front teeth into the little crack and pry them open like an oyster after I'm done sucking all the salt off the shell. The only problems I encounter with pistachios are A, when there's a completely closed nut, because those shells are like fucking diamonds, and B, when I eat, like, 500 in one sitting, and saltburn my tongue so bad I can't taste anything for the rest of the week.
It's worth it, though, they're really the best nuts ever.
