This walnut bread lame is meant for those diehard blade holders, specifically the ones who were stubborn enough to dare not embrace the UFO or Arc lames! You know who you are! So, the genius folks at WireMonkey took it as a personal challenge to go even smaller: maintaining their design philosophy of no knobs, beautiful aesthetics, no plastics... simple. You keep your thumb on the blade while scoring, intimate, but it's much safer than handling a bare blade. And when you're done, you tuck the blade inside for safe keeping.
