Lame bread knife
Your homemade breads will look like they came straight out of a traditional artisan bakehouse with just a quick flick of the baker’s lame bread dough scorer.
Modelled on the lame tool French bakers have used for centuries, with a thin and sharp curved blade and a long handle to give you ultimate cutting control, this is how to score sourdough bread like a pro. Making the perfect mark with your dough scorer allows the right amount of moisture to escape from your loaf, so it properly expands in the oven, without tearing the skin or crust.
If you’re a newcomer to this home bread making craze, cut your teeth trying out some classic decorative leaf patterns on baguettes, caraway rye loaves, or the everyday sourdough loaf recipe you’ll find on Cookidoo.
If your basic skills are already proven and you’re ready to channel your creativity, make your mark with your very own signature score. The high-quality stainless steel blades of our baker’s lame bread scorer will put you in control of exactly where you want your bread dough to open and expand.
Beware of the sharp blade. Carefully hand wash with warm water and dry directly after washing. The baker’s lame is not suitable for the dishwasher. And for your safety, we recommend keeping the blade cover on your bread dough scorer blade when it’s not in use.

1. Please be careful when handling, the blades are extremely sharp.
2. Remove lame handle and blades from the packaging.
3. Carefully unwrap the outer paper and inner tissue from the blade.
4. Place blade between thumb and forefinger and bend the blade.
5. Insert the metal end of the handle, into the bottom edge of the blade groove.
6. Insert the other end into the topside of the blade groove.
7. Ensure the blade is flat to the metal edge.
8. When not in use, we recommend protecting the blade with supplied cover.
I am very disappointed in it due to the danger of trying to attach a very sharp razor blade to a curved handle without an instrument to hold the blade steady. I was lucky I didn’t inflict a serious injury on my hands. A sharp knife would do the job of slashing a baguette just as well.
Thanks for your feedback Barbara. Our Lame Bread Knife is sharp so it gives you perfectly scored bread and control when prepping your loaf. However, this does mean you have to be careful when handling it. We have created a video on how to safely place the blade onto the handle which can be found here - https://thermomix.com.au/products/lame-bread-knife (under the care instructions tab). The covers will keep your knife safe while not in use. We hope that helps.
Brilliant tool I love it
