General term for any edge cut at an angle to a flat surface.
In architecture, a bevel is a sloped or canted surface resembling a splay, except that strictly the term splay should only be applied to openings which have their sides sloped for the purpose of enlarging them, while a sloped surface in another situation would be called a bevel. However, the two terms are generally interchanged.Found on http://www.probertencyclopaedia.com/browse/TB.HTM
