Matfer Bourgeat's Baker's Blade is carded as part of the Master Chef Series. This baker's blade is used to cut slits in raw bread dough. By cutting ridges into the baguette dough, the slits create ventilation which allows the dough to rise. The baker's blade is made of stainless steel with a plastic handle. A protective cover included for the double edge blade. This baker's blade should be handled with care.
