After I melt the cut I quickly roll it under a steel ruler while it's still soft to give a nice catch-free taper. Also a wind-proof lighter with element is good for the melt. I reckon this process gives a better result than a hot-knife.
Don't breath the fumes! (I finally set up Steve at Rock Hardware with an extractor fan, have wanted to do that for years)
