Slash beautiful patterns in the dough with this French-style knife.


Professional bakers use this tool (called a lahm - pronounced lame) to slash loaves before baking to allow rapid dough expansion.


This results in a light fluffy bread with crisp aromatic crust.


Each lame is lovingly cut from walnut and polished by hand in the USA.


The brass thumb nuts make blade replacement quick and easy.


The unique design is great for deep cuts and versatile slashing patterns.


A portion of proceeds donated to the World Food Program.
