    Lame

    A lame is a double-sided blade used to slash the tops of bread loaves in artisan baking. A lame is used to score (also called slashing or docking) bread just before the bread is placed in the oven. Often a lame will have a slight curve to it which allows users to cut flaps (called shag) considerably thinner than would be possible with a traditional straight razor.This allows bread to properly expand in the oven without tearing the skin or crust and also allows moisture to escape from the loaf.
