For those with wire soap cutters...

I'm thinking of getting a wire soap cutter for logs, but I read in the How-To Guide at FCS that their wire cutters may not cut soaps cured more than 4-5 days well.

I'll probably be ordering soaps in so plus curing so it's hard enough to ship and shipping time, it'll be at least about 2-3 weeks cured. Would getting a wire soap cutter be a waste of time on my end then... or could someone clarify "may not cut well" a little further for me? Like, is it that it won't cut at all, or it may be tougher to cut, or that the soaps just won't be even?

TIA!

I have the FCS cutter and I have pulled soap out of the mold and cut it in less than 24hrs. In my experience, as lond as the soap is hard enough to come out of the mold...it is hard enough to cut with the FCS cutter.

ok...just reread your post. You will be having soaps shipped in, in log form?? Then I say you may have a little trouble with the wire cutter. If I was cutting soap that had been cured for a bit...then I would try this type of cutter...http://creeksidesoaps.com/supplies/soap-cutter.htm

If you ever get a chance to buy a Delsie, they are worth the money. Right now they aren't making them until further notice - I don't know what is up with that. But, I have one, and it is great on those hard to cut recipe. I just make sure I keep a pretty big guitar string on mine and it will cut a pretty tough log of soap.

For the few 'hard' recipe logs that I've done, I used the wire cutter to make 'score marks' on the top of the log, then cut by hand with my pastry cutter.

Thanks for that tip cause I could score mine then put it in my Mr Do Right 3 in 1 cutter and then be able to cut them. Cool!
