When aiming for an ear, with one lengthways scoring popular with batards, is it at a 30° angle straight down the middle or a 30° angle slightly off centre with a gentle curve?

Now that is interesting indeed! Love the diagrams and what an amazing ear. So it's a 45° angle! Pretty difficult to get it just right but Hang does so. The picture helps a lot.
a straight run from tip to toe is the way that I do it.
Always admiring your scoring. Tried today straight down the middle. It opened up very well and even though no ear just yet I'm already happier with it. For a straight no ear scoring it really peeled open and an improvement already. I think it's the angle I need to get right and even more difficult is the depth to judge just so.
dmsnyder has created a tutorial video that really works well to answer all those slashing questions. Good Luck!.
