Nice shave!

My soap shaver does an excellent job with my bars. On the shallow setting the shavings are very fine so minimal waste - and the shavings rebatch wonderfully. Do handle with extreme care, the blade is super sharp which my finger can testify! Keep your wits about you and don't get distracted or daydreaming while you're playing like I did. I just noticed that you can purchase replacement blades when necessary, which is great to know. All up, I'm happy with my purchase.

Would Buy it Again

I agree with the other review that it doesn't necessarily shave evenly, like the blade might be installed a little crooked, but overall I like it. It does a very good job of shaving off soda ash or an uneven edge, and I like the versatility of two different thicknesses. I would definitely buy it again.

Great idea, needs some tweaking yet

So I've had a little time to play with this tool. On the surface, this is a great idea. And it does shave the soap quite nicely. Here's the big issue though: because it is made of PVC, you can't play with the screws to set the depth of the shave you want. My husband is a commercial cabinet maker and he tells me that PVC is very soft - if you pull out the screws on the blade to set the depth to the one you want, you will shatter/crack the PVC and it won't hold the screws. So in my case, I want a slightly deeper cut, ie the advertised 1/16". The way the screws were placed (a little crooked in their base, not symmetrically lined up) allows me to only adjust one side of the shaver to the 1/16". So I can shave 1/2 the bar if I place it on the left side of the shaver. A slightly thicker base or a base made of something other than PVC (laminated kitchen counter top material would keep the slip) or proper centering of the blade's original screws would really make this a nice tool.
