Made in France, High Quality, Stainless Steel 4" Baker's Blade
Printable Product Details Page
For scoring bread before baking.
Use a baker's blade (lamé) to cut ridges into baguettes and to facilitate the rising of dough.
It's the raised thick part between the blade and the handle, which usually distinguishes the knife as fully forged.
The bolster acts as a guard providing safety, balance, sturdiness, and comfort.
Beware of companies that manufacture knives with an imitation bolster as these knives are invariably poorer in quality compared to a â€śone piece fully forgedâ€ť knife.
