Precise position of razor cut

When using the razor, the cut automatically snaps to some kind of hidden point.  How do I cut in between these points?

Thanks.

If I want to get very precise edits here one way I do it.I change my timeline to "Show Audio Time Units" by right-clicking the top of your timeline and pulling down to "Show Audio Time Units" (see reference below)Then I place my CTI (the blue triangle and line) precisely where I want my cut to happen and instead of using the Razor Blade tool I use the keyboard shortcut Command+K to make a cut along the CTI.I also zoom in on my sequence by activating the timeline panel and using the + and - keys....

Razor cut will always cut on a frame for video.

If you have audio units selects and cutting audio it will cut at 1/48000 of a second.

BUT REMEMBER... Premiere doesn't let you cut or split a half of a frame of video. If you are placing your cut between video frames it's going jump to the next closest spot where a frame ends or a frame begins.

I'm having a similar issue, I have the playhead or CTI in the correct position but if I Contral+K or razor tool it cuts it in a spot close to but not where I need the cut. 

 

I'm sure somewhere my preferences aren't right. I have Show Audio Time Unit on so not sure why it's happening. Any clues?

Thank you Ann and gerikp.  This answered my question but did not solve the problem.  I will just have to live with it.  Not the worst thing.
