Bread Lame knives are bread dough cutting knives (which use the double edged thin razor blades) for scoring the proven loaf before it is placed into the oven.
The scores, beside giving the finished loaf an attractive rustic appearance, controls where the loaf expands when baking. The loaf expands where you score, thus preventing it expanding anywhere else causing the loaf to become mis-shapen and looking amateurish!
The Lame knife includes a pack of 5 double sided coated stainless steel razor blades. One blade edge will score 50 loaves, so a double edged razor blade will score 100 loaves, and the pack of 5 blades, 500 loaves.
