With the "hook" feature, our SmoothTrim™ Soap Planer allows you to place this device over the outside edge of your workbench or container, and trim your soap with very little effort.
Our soap trimmer is much more durable and easy to maintain than the blade-loaded wood or acrylic soap planers on the market.
This versatile tool allows you to trim your soap to a perfect square and bevel the edge all in one movement, or you can also trim and bevel the edges of your soap separately.
It is a one-piece tool without a blade, therefore you don’t have to worry about replacing blades forever. It is easy to use and a cinch to clean!
Please note that this planer does NOT come with a beveling feature. It is particularly designed for those soapers who ONLY want to smooth out the rough or uneven surface without beveling edges.

Like most new soapmakers, I spent a small fortune on all kinds of tools when I started my soapmaking career. One of them was a conventional wooden trimmer.
The wooden trimmer has a blade loaded, two grooves for beveling, and a drawer on the bottom to collect trimmings. (You might have used the same thing that I am talking about here…)
I never felt confident and comfortable when I placed my soap on the groove and slid through the blade, because I was not sure if I held the soap straight enough in order to get a straight and even cut.
Most of the time, the bevels were not even at all and the blade shaved too much of my beautiful soap!
I ended up wasting lots of soaps and losing my temper! On top of that, the poor trimming performance, safety, and cleaning process were also a nightmare.
I even cut my fingers from time to time during trimming and cleaning!
To clean the whole unit, I needed to pull out the “tight” drawer to dump the trimmings, and then carefully wash it with a brush and a little water. To prevent the blade to get rusted from water, I used paper towels to dry it as soon as I cleaned the whole thing….
This frustration finally came to a happy end. Soon after I teamed up with my genius brother and his son, who have brilliant engineering minds, we invented the new tool that you are watching right now!
