We characterize the cut patterns that can be produced by “orthogonal fold & cut”: folding an axis-aligned rectangular sheet of paper along horizontal and vertical creases, and then making a single straight cut (at any angle). Along the way, we solve a handful of related problems: orthogonal fold & punch, 1D fold & cut, signed 1D fold & cut, and 1D interval fold & cut.
