    Chef Son's bread slasher

    A while back I was looking for a better approach than a razor blade for slashing loaves of bread. Son, in one of his typical generous moves, sent me this little cutie to try:

    Finally got a chance to use it the other day. Here's the bread before slashing. (Should have let it rise a little more, but it was late and I was tired.)

    After slashing. There's going to be a little bit of a learning curve with this--I managed to squash the ends of the loaf, but the cuts towards the center were better:

    And the final product:

    I'm really happy with how the slashes in the center of the loaf came out. Better results than with a razor blade or one of my knives, and a heck of a lot easier to wash than a razor blade! I'll need to work on it a little more to develop some consistency, but this looks like it's going to be a super tool for bread. And it works on old lady whiskers, too!

    Thanks again, Son! You're the best!

    It's certainly the best looking bread slasher I have ever seen (glad to hear it works well too!).

    We should take a poll to see how many of us are in posession of some kinda Son blade. I know I love mine.

    I am extremely grateful to son. I wear my tooth everywhere as seen in the WCG photos. It is my most prized possession.

    I initially just looked at the photos and thought you shaved this bread.... and was worried that it was hairy bread. and was kind of got paranoid that how in the world the brad can grow hair. scary.

    Bread looks amazing!

    I only have to shave it after it's been sitting out on the counter for a couple of weeks...
