A lame is a double-sided blade that is used to slash the tops of bread loaves in artisan baking. A lame is used to score bread just before the bread is placed in the oven. A slash on the loaf’s surface allows the dough to properly expand in the oven without tearing the skin or crust and also allows moisture to escape from the loaf. Proper scoring also allows the baker to control exactly where the loaf will open or bloom. This significantly improves the appearance of baked breads. It brings out the bread baker’s artistic talent, allowing a unique signature. The package includes a sturdy arm, 5 replaceable blades and a blade guard. Hand wash.
