  2. Spread your sticky rice out over the nori.  Leave about an inch of the nori uncovered.  This will help your roll seal up when rolling.

  5. Sushi cutting tips:  Wet your knife with warm water before each cut.  Cut the roll in half, then cut each half in half, and finally cut each section in half again.  This will give you nice even sections!
