Outside Curves

Outside curves are usually the easiest curve to break out. You do not have to worry about breaking the piece, as the break if it goes off the score line will be away from the piece rather than into it. Outside curves normally have complimentary inside curves. So on the principle of making the most difficult break first and the easiest last, the outside curve will be broken out last. Unless, of course, there is a straight line on the other side of the curve when it would be the last, as it is the most straightforward cut.
