We do the same thing here!  The less hard stuff actually on the knife at a time is much easier to cut!

I have a question regarding "proper embedding"---I have been practicing for 35 yrs., am at new position and funny thing, I do things incorrectly---
Anyway, correct embedding--epithelium from skin - "all going same way" but I embed on a slant not  in a straight row. The knife blade hits one piece at a time not the entire
"straight " line.
Glenda Hoye and the instructors- do you have a reference?
