  • Best place to buy Lames

    I'm getting a little frustrated using my Opinel knife to slash my bread. I think it's just a little too heavy and it really pulls the bread when I make the cut.

    So I guess I am in the market for a real French Lame.

    Ahybody know where to get them?

    Had the same type problem you did until I got hold of the real thing. There are several sources: Kingarthurflour.com has an online catalogue that offers them, but the blades are fixed in a plastic handle, so really only one side is usable unless you're ambidextrous. The San Francisco Baking Institute (sfbi.com) carries a really nifty and cheap (about $6) bent metal handle that uses standard safety razor blades you install yourself. That's what I'm using now. SFBI is the best source for bannetons, too. If you want to get more info than you really need, go to scaritech.com. It's a French company that makes nothing else but lames. How French is that?

      Thanks for the lead

      Thanks. I called the SF Baking Institute and ordered my lame, along with two linen lined bannetons. Proceeds go to a scholarship fund. Now I can't wait for them to show up.

      Nice folks at sfbi.com.
