One of the things that i am by far the least happy with in regards to my soap is how they look sliced. No matter how hard i try or how careful i am, my big, clunky kitchen knife leaves drag marks, doesn't cut straight and just flat out sucks(its pretty dull XD).

I've been looking for a wire soap cutter, but the cheapest i've seen any for is about 90 dollars, which is just more than i have to spend on something like that right now.

I did however stumble upon this on amazon

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00004S1DU/?tag=skimlinks_replacement-20

I make all my soap in two pound molds, so i think this would be perfect. Thoughts?

Edit: I now see the "People who bought this item also bought" and its all soap making items...i guess that answers my question, lol.

That would probably work well for what you want to use it for. There have been many that started with cheese slicers. I have a Wire cutter that is similar to a cheese slicer and it works well.

I just bought that very one a few days ago and have cut two loaves with it. So far, the best decision I have ever made. The hardest thing I have found is keeping the loaf straight. I used a pencil to mark my thickness of cut. I'm thinking I might attach a wood bar to the board to keep my loaf straight while I cut. So far, I'm glad I bought it.

I'm thinking i'll just recruit the boyfriend to brace it on both sides while i do the slicing on pre marked indents ^.^

I got it and used it to cut my beer soap...love it! I have the same issue keeping it from moving but I just held it tightly before slicing. I think attaching a wood bar is a great idea!

I have several soap cutters including this one. It's quick and easy to cut into desired sizes. Most of all, the stainless less board makes clean up a breeze! Love it!

What's your technique for keeping it in place?

I use the rubbery mesh shelf liner, a small square of it, beneath the soap when I cut with my cheese slicer, it holds the soap well.

May I ask where you got this? I've been looking for a large one for a very long time!

Thanks reinbeau! I'm having trouble with my loaf moving on my cheese slicer and I think this will fix my problem. So glad I saw this!
