Name: Baker's Blade
- Description: Curved or straight razor-sharp blades. Some will have a special plastic handle on it to make it easier to hold and grip. Others consist of just the blade (all steel). New styles consist of a replaceable blade with a handle, such as the Lam'Plus Baker's Blade designed by Jean-christian Horel and made by Matfer Bourgeat.
- How to Use It: A baker's blade is used to cut slits on the tip of unbaked bread dough
to allow for ventilation or for decoration. These series of slits or cuts are done prior to proofing.
