comment Cutting Tefillin Retzuos
i never saw Rabbeinu Tam retzuos in that case! i believe the point was to indicate the direction of the insertion into the teffilin box. an animal is not flat. the strap has a curve to it and i believe the point or slant to indicate in which direction the retzuos should be put on the battim. if you go against the curve the tefillin will not adhere to the head properly and the retzuos shel yad will be uncomfortable.
