Handing a door can be confusing. A door is only considered a RH or LH swing. Where reverse bevel comes into play is only in describing the location of a keyed lock. A RH swing door is a door that swings away from you and the hinges are on the right. A LH swing is the same but the hinges are on the L. Reverse bevel comes into play when there is a keyed lock involved, and where it is located on the door. If the keyed side is on the side of the door that opens towards you then it is considered a reverse bevel, and depending where the hinges are, it would be either RH reverse (Hinges on your right)as the door swings towards you, or LH reverse (Hinges on your left) If the door swings away from you and the keyed lock is on that side then it is still either a RH or LH swing, only when the keyed side is on the side that swings towards you, would it be considered reverse bevel.
This is probably as clear as mud.
