Roll up top-edge cuts made simple

I used to hold the olfa for top edge cuts how one would normally trim borders. For last couple years ive been holding it similar to how you would hold a pencil. Im right handed and trim all roll up top edges from the driver side starting from rear edge of the glass towards the front. Doing it this way i feel that its way easier to keep the blade level through out the cut and there is no risk of slipping out.

Thanks for sharing!  I'm working on getting more clean top edges and I'm excited to try this "pencil" technique.  

 

I've heard people mention a 45 degree angle when cutting top edges.  Is this the angle from the dull side of the blade to the top edge?  So you'd be sort of cutting into the glass as you make the cut?

 

Also, is it good practice to put a little downward pressure on the blade as you make the cut?
