A bred lame, who knew? I think it’s pronounced lahm, and although we’ve been making bread in my house for years, we never realized what a difference this could make when scoring bread.
If you’re just going for function, you can get away with using a serrated knife or another very sharp instrument, as we’ve done for a while. Bu the razor and the accompanying handle let you get into more intricate designs, and with the curvature of the blade we can now get the proper lip on long breads that we couldn’t get before.
Obviously you’ve got to be careful when handling the blade, but it’s very simple to position the blade onto the handle. The included instructions are illustrated and easy to follow. The blades are surprisingly made in the U.S.A., and they come individually wrapped in a box of five. It’s also good that it comes with a storage case so that you can store it safely that way.
My first couple of tries at scoring the grigne (lip) on long bread are… Shall we say a work in progress? But I have no doubt I’ll get there with my new lame.
The lame works as expected. Nicely crafted and looks great. It was a nice move up from using a standard razor blade. It was a bit sketchy installing the razor onto the lame, but I was successful without cutting myself. It was a first time go at scoring my sourdough. It cut with ease and didn't catch. I'd love to use this more, but I don't think my waistline can handle it. This would make an excellent gift for your loved one who enjoys baking bread.
There isn't a simpler scoring tool. It cuts the dough and it does that well. I was concerned that I might cut myself when I installed the blade, but there was nothing to worry about. The storage box is great, easily fits into a drawer.
