The half bullnose edge can also be called the roundover because instead of being squared off, it is rounded over. It offers a smooth and round surface. It can show a larger cross section of your stone. This edge is usually the least expensive treatment that gives you some rounding.

Unlike its name implies, this is not 1/2 of a bullnose. This edge is very smooth and flowing and shows a large cross section of the countertop making it appear thicker.

The full bullnose offers perhaps the most contemporary look of the granite, marble, sandstone and slate stone edges. A side view of full bullnose shows the shape of a half circle. The full bullnose is gentle on the body and has no edges to chip. It also tends to make granite counter tops or marble countertop, slate stone countertops look thinner. The Full Bullnose edge profile is the most popular & demanding all over the world.

Bevels are 45 degree cuts into the edge of the stone. The deeper the cut, the wider the bevel face is. If the natural stone has a tendency to chip, a bevel edge may chip more than a rounded edge will.

From the side, an ogee edge forms the shape of an "S". This is often the most elaborate edge treatment offered by fabricators. It's usually the most expensive as well. Ogee is used for a more traditional look.

Sometimes called "Bird's Beak", the Dupont edge looks like a demi bullnose with a notch at the top. On certain natural stones it may have more of a tendency to chip.

Very elaborate edge profiles can be made with special router bits like this Triple Waterfall. Real craftsman can create an unlimited array of edges by gluing together different profiles.
