    What are you using to score your bread?

    Like a nincompoop, I've been using a razor blade to score my bread loaves when it gives me a perfectly good excuse to get a new knife. But what would be the best tool for the job? There are lots of places that have cheap plastic lames, and I've seen a video of a baker making some beautiful cuts with a Victorinox baker's knife. What works best for you? (Confession time--in the deep, dark recesses of my heart, I fantasize about getting a Carter neck knife for the job.)

    I use a petty, though any of my kitchen knives would be sharp enough. From my observations it seems to make much cleaner cuts than anything I have ever seen a baker use. I really want to get a kogatana for slashing bread and such.

    Box cutter. What my chef taught. Disposable blade. Works better in the long run over my knives. Before that, my petty.

    Interesting. At first I was going to joke that I use a Moritaka with an overgrind, but in reality I am embarrassed to say that I have never thought about it.

    ....but now I am thinking about it.

    very thin petty I have. But most sharpened to our level on here will do.

    Damn you need to really be making a lot of bread to have an excuse for a special knife for the task Lucretia.

    The few times I do it, I just use a petty or my small gyuto. Cant you use your bb for the task?
