A colleague of mine raised an important point today.  She pointed out that safe cutting with a hobby knife means cutting away from your body.  This means cutting out text from bottom to top.  This reversal of stroke certainly affects my design using straight lines and curves.  Many curves need to be reversed to comply to this.  I think this may end up causing the left-handed and right-handed versions to swap.  I’m not sure that will work, I have to try it out on paper first.  Taking safety into consideration regarding the letter designs is probably a very good idea.  If you’re right-handed and insist on cutting from top to bottom, you can just use the left-handed version, and vice-versa for left-handers.
