  1. Beautiful piece of handiwork

    Posted by Ashley on Oct 12th 2016

    I highly recommend this beautiful, handcrafted lame for any home baker interested in bread. Not only is it an exceptionally gorgeous tool, it is very easy to use (blade removal & insertion is very simple and if you are careful, not dangerous) and it functions spectacularly. I have tried everything in my kitchen and junk drawer to slash bread without a professional lame like this--from my sharpest knives, to my most serrated knives, to Exacto knives and kitchen scissors--and absolutely nothing has worked. This lame makes the slashing easy and fast, just like it should be for perfectly slashed bread. I was actually surprised when I used it, because I have had such difficulty with the task in the past. Thanks to the Zabota lame, I am able to keep my loaves beautiful, instead of mangling them like before.
    Also, sent with the lame was a little container with potting soil and a surprise seed that I can plant, sent as a gift from the company. How adorable! I'm already eying the black walnut pizza cutter, too... :)

  2. How did I live without this beautifully crafted tool!?

    Now I need the whisk!

Product Description

This lame ("lahm") is custom designed for a professional baker. Handcrafted from Black Walnut wood and features knurled brass thumb-nuts for quick and easy blade replacement. A lame is used for slashing artisan loaves before baking. The slashes allow for rapid expansion of the hot dough which results in a light, airy, and beautiful loaf. Because every lame is individually handmade, slight variations may be present, especially in the wood grain. This makes each one unique, showcasing lots of character in the wood! Beautiful Black Walnut is our most popular lame. Note: This lame is currently designed for slashing from the right/right hand only. Attempting left use will result in the brass nuts catching on the dough. Comes complete with instructions and a 5 pack of blades. It is the perfect gift for any home or professional baker. Please contact us if you are looking for a left handed bread lame, we will gladly assist.
