This is the best improvement I've made - although I still have lots to learn! Now I hold the blade firmly and give a quick and decisive slash . Before I was just kind of dragging the blade over the loaf and it wasn't that effective.

It did it again. I docked my Miche and it made a split in the middle along one of the lines. I'm still trying to get all the slashes to pop out.

Still, this was an unusual case -- I ended up being too busy to bake my loaf yesterday, so I put it in the refrigerator and let it sit overnight. It was definitely falling in by the time I baked it this morning. I guess everything new is a learning experience.
