    Is there a reason a CP cutter wouldn't work for MP? Just curious, I've only made MP a few times and I've been mostly using individual molds. I did cut some large bars into guest bars with my knife, that worked well.

    I believe I read that MP is too hard for wire cutters, and the wires break.

    Just use a mitre box and soap cutter. Works great!

    I made a loaf of melt and pour soap and used my soap cutter from Bud Haffner. It worked, but I was very careful on how much pressure I put on the wires while cutting it as soon as possible. All in all... not advisable.

    Is a knife or a dough scraper not working?

    After recommendations I went to Home Depot and bought a mitre box that costs about 15$ it cuts various perfect sizes ! I couldn't be happier with it!
