For cutting Balsa use a metal ruler (not wooden or plastic), and pull the knife towards you keeping fingers clear of the blade. A cutting mat is also recommended.
For Cross Grain Cuts press down lightly at first, scoring the surface with a few shallow cuts and keeping the cutting edge at approximately 45 degrees to the material. As you increase the depth of the cut start to press more firmly and concentrate on keeping the blade against the ruler
When cutting With the Grain make one firm cut and then increase the pressure with successive cuts until completely through the timber. Keep the blade against the ruler with every cut.
