I have the Hunter #2 Osprey; the cutter seat is angled down toward the end. The Osprey shank is round, for rolling the tool to whatever angle to ride the bevel of the cutter against the wood. The Osprey is available with a #1 or #2 cutter, and a 3/8” or 1/2” shank, respectively.

The Hunter Hercules has a square shank with 45 degree bevel to help present the bevel to the work, with apparently the same downward angle on the cutter seat. It is available with a #1 or #3 cutter, and a 3/8” or 5/8” shank, respectively.

The other Hunter tools, including the Badger line, and I believe the Harrison Simple Sheer tools that use the same style cutter style, have the cutter seat parallel to the tool shaft axis. I have no experience with them.
