Lames for slashing

2526 Views 9 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  kimmie
I use a Matfer brand lame for loaf slashing. About how long will it last? I don't think that it can be resharpened. I also noticed that the SF Baking Institute offers a lame that takes replacement blades. Any comments?

I only bake about three 1 pound loaves per week at the most.

To all:
I just got the lame handle from SFBI and used it last night. IT WORKS GREAT, much better than the Matfer brand. I'll stick with this one because it uses replaceable double edge razor blades, the sharpest on the market. Believe me, it slashes effortlessly compared to the Matfer. The Matfer rips the dough whereas the double edge razor actually cuts right thru the dough without tearing it. :) :) :)
