(Does not include a holster - sold separately)
The UFO Zero lame was the original concept for the circular lame. Wire Monkey had 1950's Sci-Fi on the brain along with some engineering stuff and lots of his mother's card games. It's a long story!
All UFOs are made in the Wire Monkey family owned small shop in Fairfield, Connecticut USA. Wire Monkey believe in fair wages, using no plastics or harsh chemicals and giving back to the baking community.
Here are some of the benefits of the UFO Lame:
- Ultimate fine control over scoring.
- Ambidextrous design.
- No more cuts for blade holders!
- Blade is easily stored inside for safety.
- No thumb nuts to snag on your dough.
- No more lost blades
- Designed and made in the USA
See other Wire Monkey products for fractionated coconut oil and wooden brass wire brush for easy maintenance and clean up and an upcycled leather holster for storage.
One Astra platinum coated double edge razor blade included; it is wrapped in paper inside the lame when you receive it. Please be careful when handling.
No chemicals are used to treat these wooden lames. Instead, they are soaked in our fractionated coconut oil prior to packaging, to prevent them from drying out. Oil seepage onto the packaging envelope will occur, and is normal.
Materials: This UFO is made of solid American black walnut and stainless steel hardware.
Dimensions: 46mm diameter x 6.35mm thick.
This is the 5th wire monkey lame I have bought. 1 for me, 4 for presents. Love it. Small, effective, blade is long enough to give a deep score. There are copies around, but I've stuck to the original.
The service from Everything sourdough was faultless. Easy to order, packaged and posted the next day, with attention to detail. Delivered within 2-3 days of ordering. Thanks so much for hassle free buying.
Quality, light weight and easy to use lame.
This one was for a gift. Love this will be buying again for myself. Easy to use, great finish. Should make for fun sourdoughing. Very impressed with this.
Smaller than I expected but that's a plus. Fits so neatly between my fingers and being close to the dough makes scoring a breeze. Love the control and manoeuvrability. It was on the pricey side for me for a lame (glad that shipping was free) but the quality and fine carving of the timber is impressive. Simple to use and safe when you are finished and blade is enclosed. Very happy with my purchase.
Have used a lame with a long handle for ages but this Wire Monkey takes scoring your SD to another level.
More flexible movements are possible and much easier to use.
