Tips & Tricks: 

  • Push the soap loaf all the way to the left so that each bar is evenly cut. Depending on the size of your loaf the end piece might be a little smaller or larger than the others.
  • If the soap has any fun stuff like lavender buds or salt on top of your soap loaf, you'll want to cut the soap with the "toppings" face down. Otherwise, the wires will pull and drag the toppings through the cuts and cause drag lines.
  • It is important to cut partially cured soap. Soft soap won't cut cleanly and your loaf may become disfigured. However, really hard soap is very difficult to cut through and can result in a broken wire (or two).
  • Once soap has been cut, leave cutter in "down" position to remove soap before lifting the handle back up.
  • Clean the individual wires after every loaf cut. Leftover bits may cause noticeable drag lines on the next loaf.
  • Have fun!

So Far So Good
I have cut several bars with this cutter now and I am so pleased with the results. It is so easy to use and cuts rather large bars very nicely. Thank you Brambleberry!

Multi-cutter has a week point.
This is a great cutter but the front bar which holds the keys is attached in a week fashion. It is make with laminated plywood and is not screwed together properly to withstand the tension that is required to do the job. The one I received had screws off center. The plywood split and moved inward. Bramble Berries staff was kind but would not ask the manufacturer to fix the problem. My husband did take it apart and put it back together the way it should have been done in the first place. It works great now. I would recommend when you receive your cutter test it's strength as soon as you receive it or look for one that is built sturdier.

Hi Cheryl! I'm sorry this cutter wasn't your favorite. In our tests and recipes, we've found it cuts well. The screws and wires are also adjustable, as seen in the How to Use a Multi-Bar Soap Cutter Video. Our customer service team did email the manufacturer to let them know! I'll be emailing you to discuss this more.

Solid Craftsmanship
We love this cutter. Using a straight soap cutter and a mitre box left soap warped and funny shaped, and somewhat curved where cut. Not with this cutter. The bars are flat and uniform and easy to label. It is nice to have a uniform weight too, our bars come in a 5 oz with this cutter. Thanks Bramble Berry for such a great item.

Can't do without!
I absolutely LOVE this product. I've had it for a year now and have never broken a string. I've been brutal to it too, cutting things I shouldn't cut such as gingerbread soap with BIG, melt and pour gingerbread cutouts in the middle. I make between 300-500 bars at a time, and this cutter SAVES TIME. I get uniform thickness which conveys professionalism and bolsters my brand. Local shops like knowing weights are basically equal for pricing convenience. I like knowing all my customers are getting what they pay for. Just a great, great cutter. I highly recommend!

Avoid, poor construction, design flaws
I have been through 2 of these cutters since 8/12. Brambleberry replaced the first one, which began to twist as it cut. The second one, well, they told me it had been a long time since I bought the first one. All my bars are cut less than 24 hours after cure, while still soft, and I am physically limited so I can't put a lot of force on the cutter. Both cutters began to twist as they cut. Neither cutter was used for over 100 logs. The cutting arm is attached via a tiny piece of 1/2" plywood that is 1 5/8" long by 1/2" wide and held in place via staples on one connection and 3/8" brass screws in the other. It is not capable of withstanding the stress of repeated use. The actual piece of wood holding the wires began to loosen from the U shaped framed to which it is attached. The first cutter had 10 wires spaced exactly the same and the 11th wire was short spaced. Same for the second. Customers will not buy a short piece for full price. Avoid.

Hi Liz! I’m sorry to hear this soap cutter is giving you a little trouble. We have found that this cutter works great, and we have definitely used it to cut a lot of soap! I will be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot, and help you resolve these issues.
