I get good results with knife and billot by placing the reed so the tip points at me Vs. away from me.

Seeing the perpendicular alignment of reed and knife becomes easy in time and deciding to cut evenly or offset is also easier that way.

I can cut a fraction of a hair's width of cane using this approach. Sometimes only the spit off the end of the reed is the right amount.

Reed tip is way out near the edge of the block on the rounded edge portion and that makes it easier to cut an offset when I desire that.

I usually desire that.
