I use the kitchen shears which works fairly well. It will leave black dust if you swish it around in your tank at all, but if you precut it, rinse it, put it directly in your filer and don't move it around, you will not see any black dust. I have used it for medication removal, and it's amazing. A green/blue/yellow tinted tank will be 100% clear the next day as the carbon absorbs everything. I do throw the medication removal carbon out once the medication has been removed (a day or so).
I know using carbon in an aquarium is really up to personal choice as it's not completely necessary (other than medication removal), but I choose to use it for the polishing effect it has on my water. It really helps the water be crystal clear, so my use is for purely aesthetic purposes. As far as odor removal, my tank has never had a bad odor. It does have a lovely river water smell though. If I open the lid and take a whiff, I am instantly transported back to playing in the river as a kid. It is really a lovely smell. Thankfully, the carbon doesn't remove that!
I do change it every 3-4 weeks to make sure I'm getting maximum effectiveness.
I probably don't strictly need the carbon, but I like it as an extra chemical filtration. I am addicted to all three types of filtration: mechanical (which this one also helps with), biological (I love my little Matrix bacteria hotels!), and chemical (hence this carbon).
Note: If you are cleaning your tank and not ready to swap out the carbon for new (you'll be putting this same carbon back in if you are replacing other elements in your filter), make sure to squeeze the carbon out to shake all the loose material that got stuck in it. But big tip, do it last in your dirty tank water! When I change the water, I set aside a bucket of the water I just drained out to squeeze and swish current filter media that I'll continue to use, but if I do the carbon first, all the water turns back with dust and everything else I rinse in there get the black dust on it. So swish the carbon last.
