Sharing Aloe Plant

I have an aloe plant that is about 9 years old. It has gotten so big that I would like to cut pieces off and give them to my friends.  How do I do that? 

Start (propagate) new plants from a leaf or division.  Remove a leaf from the plant.  Let the cut end dry for a day or two.  Then bury the bottom inch or two of the leaf in a well-drained potting mix, vermiculite, perlite or sand.  Avoid over watering which can lead to rot.  Or slide the aloe plant out of its container.  Use a sharp knife to divide the parent plant (roots and all) from any offsets (small plants) that have formed. Repot the divisions in containers an inch or two larger than the remaining root system.
