    Are your knife cuts allowed to go over each other?

    [Actually, looking at your note, they must be able to- if the strips are all in the interior of the torus then if they weren't you could never separate any pieces].

    Are your Mobius strips a set size? (I don't quite understand what you mean by your note on the curvature- do you mean that you just twist the interval around the circle at a constant speed around the Mobius strip to make it, so that they are "uniform" in some sense?)
