    Do any of you soapers out there bevel the edges of your soap and if so, what do you use? Knife, veggie peeler,
    specific soap beveler?

    Thanks

    I used one from my husbands wood woorking shop. I used to bevel, it's where my almond bisoctti shreds originally came from :) Now I am lucky if I clean off hang nails on my bars before wrapping :)

    Having a real beveler is soo much nicer than using a veggy peeler, faster and clean crisp lines. Vicki

    i have a soap beveler that I paid too much for, got it years ago on one of the soap suppliers sites.. Like vicki says, it is wonderful.. beautiful bars with straight beveled edges, it planes too.

    I bought a beveler and beveled maybe half a dozen batches. Even though I do like the look it made my bars look smaller so I don't do it anymore.

    Ditto on the not beveling anymore - not enought time in the day - and why not give the customer a bit more soap? when I did bevel I preferred a veggie peeler.
