I remember reading about this when I was young. Though at the time when it was popular, they had cardboard shells, and so the shooter had to be careful to *almost* cut thru them.
I've seen another video where the birdshot is removed, added to melted wax, then poured back into the shot cup to make an improved slug load, but nothing like the "cut shell" before.

I read some years ago that cut shells are dangerous as the crimp may let go part way down the barrel, causing the case wall to stay in the barrel, causing an obstruction for the next shot.
