sure, just get something called a "link puller", aka a "chain tool" from any bicycle store.

they look like this and cost about 6 bucks:

with that it's easy to open & close bicycle chain.

you'll probably also want to get some of the special "link pins" to fasten your new short chains together with. they're not completely necessary, but they cost like pennies, so you should use em.

Well I doubt that SplendedSplender would use a dirty chain. It would be a really good idea to use a brand new one...

well, sometimes bike chains actually do kind of turn your skin black even if they're new...  I know one of my friends had a bike chain bracelet (from a store) and it always left his skin a little black after wearing it for a while.
