Beveller - This Beveller is a necessary tool in your soaping arsenal. It will finish off your soap with beautifully smooth edges to create a more professional look, as well as making your bars easier on the hands. Made from Solid PVC, this little tool is easy to wash. It has a bench hook to secure the beveller to the edge of a table or countertop. Save the cut off scraps for embedding in future projects!
After listening to our customer reviews, we have improved this product! As of January 2014, the beveller now has a taut wire to perfectly bevel each bar without becoming clogged. We have rigorously tested the wire, and it has held up to all of our demands. We have found that it works the best on soaps that have been curing for at least a week. Measures 12"(l) x 5.5(w) x 4.5"(t).
I am very sad to report that (for me) this was a huge waste of money. I got this in the mail today and immediately tried it out on my bars. I tried it out on cubes, loaf bars, half rounds and square bars and every single time it tore the corners off my soap. I thought it might just be me so I had 3 different friends try it out and every time it tore the corners. I tried it on hard bars that had cured for months and new bars that had only been curing a few day and everything in between. I tried it on soaps made from different recipes thinking it might be some specific ingredient causing them to tear, but no. Every single bar was torn at the corners. I should have stuck with my vegetable peeler. This is completely unusable. Looks like another lackluster tool to be shoved in the soap room closet... :(
Update: Brambleberry contacted me and sent me a new beveler very quickly. The new one worked like a charm and I love the way it makes my soaps look. Thanks for the awesome support BB!
My beveller works beautifully thank you. For me it does the best job on soap that has been curing for 2-4 weeks. Fresh soap is a bit gooey and gets stuck, and fully cured soap is too hard and breaks. (This would vary according to recipe of course).
My bevelled soaps are very professional looking.
The only improvement I would suggest - and I'm not sure if it can be done - is to have some way of adjusting the depth of the bevel. Personally I would prefer a slightly shallower bevel, but obviously everyone has their own tastes. The product itself is well made, strong and works very well.
Thank you :)
I have held off on ordered a beveller, but opted for this one because of its price and because I am usually very happy with my Bramble Berry purchases. This beveller just doesn't seem to work. I have tried beveling soap from hours old to 6 weeks old and everything in between. I have changed the wire tension from slack to nearly snapping it is so tight. I thought my recipe may be too soft so I made a much harder recipe and added sodium lactate. No mater what I do, I get the same result. The soap gets clogged in the wire and smears across the surface of the unit.
I have successfully bevelled my soap on other units belonging to friends, so I don't think it is me or my recipe.

I've bought , this tool, a d I tried it first when I got it didn't work for me, there is no instructions, so I'm not sure if I'm using it wrong or is just useless. I don't see how can I shave my soaps with it. I haven't used it again.
