I ordered a new wire-guillotine cheese slicer yesterday, but it won’t be used for cheese. I am getting this one because it was big enough to handle cutting the soap when I make bar soap in our new molds. I’m expecting this to make the finished bars look more uniform in size and shape – a bit of a more professional product. Anyhow, I needed something that would handle making an 8 1/2″ cut across the soap, so I needed the largest cheese slicer I could find on eBay. It cost me $29 with free standard shipping, and should arrive by midweek next week.
