Ok bought this to replace an old plastic one where you couldn’t replace the blade. No, it doesn’t come with instructions on how to put on the blade but really it’s not that hard to figure out. Bend blade slightly and slide it on. I didn’t need instructions to figure that out. Yes the metal round piece at the handle can separate, after reading the reviews I checked how easily it separates. It takes little force to come off..... it also goes back on. I used a bit of glue to keep it there..... something really I shouldn’t have to do, given the price. The cover for the blade is vinyl. All in all it gets the job done holds the blade well, easy to maneuver. Really I think your paying for the box more then the lame. The less expensive ones are just as sturdy, they just don’t have a storage box.
This has totally upped my bread scoring game! I had always used knives, but this is a game changer, allowing me to get beautiful designs and a wonderful "ear" on my bread. I love the case it comes in, making it easy to store and reducing the risk of my kids hurting themselves on it.
Bought this bread lame! It’s fantastic! I love it! I was tired of just using a razor as I couldn’t really get a nice ‘score’ without worrying about slicing my fingers! So I’m delighted to have found this. I have gifted it twice already too! The box it comes with is Also sturdy and really nice for storing it with the razors.
The quality of the product it is very low given the high price paid. In addition, the bread must be "pierced" so that the blade can penetrate it, which causes sagging. Also, the wood of the handle is split. Although I tried to reach the seller about it, I never got a response from it. I do not recommend this blade nor the seller.
This lame gives us the nice deep cuts we were looking to do to our sourdough bread. It feels good in our hands, it's nice to have extra blades and a protective covering. The razors fall off quite easily but also go back on just as easily and stay in place long enough to do the job.
