This grignette holds a replaceable standard razor-blade (supplied) and holds the blade in a gentle curve, or straight as required. The blade makes for a grignette with an exceptionally sharp blade, held safely with a removable, protective cover when not in use. It is perfect for making fast, clean slashes on dough just before it is baked. The curve allows for deep, angled cuts giving improved crust and artistic opportunities!
This is a professional-grade grignette ideal for dough slashing. The Bordelaise takes a standard razor-blade, flexible, but slightly less flexible than the Panette which has a special razor-sharp replaceable blade. Both types of blade are available from BakeryBits. After many 100s or 1000s of cuts, the lame (blade), like any other, will dull but may be replaced with another, avoiding the need to buy a whole new grignette.
A grignette is a must item for the budding artisan baker and this Mure & Peyrot one is for professional use.

Which grignette should I choose?
The most popular grignette amongst both home and professional bakers is the Mure & Peyrot 'Bordelaise'. It is popular because it has all of the options in one tool:
- the blade (lame) can be made to take a curve, or to remain straight
- the blade is replaceable and takes standard razor blades (available from us) and so are extremely sharp
- the blade can be removed and rotated to ensure that all corners can be used
How long do the blades last?The blades are good for 100s of cuts, more or less dependent of the dough that is uses: a white dough will blunt the blade (lame) less than a seeded dough (only by a tiny amounts but this adds up over 100s of cuts).
What is the difference between a Bordelaise and Landaise?The blade in the Landaise is held straight whereas the blade in the Bordelaise may be bent if desired allowing for a deeper under-cut for baguettes and similar.
What is the difference between the red and yellow grignettes and the Mure & Peyrot ones?The red and yellow grignettes have a permanent blade (lame) designed to last the life of the device. The Mure & Peyrot will take replacement blades.
What is the difference between the red and yellow grignettes?Both grignettes have a permanent blade (lame), but the red one may be rotated giving the user a greater opportunity to use both sides of the blade.
What is the difference between the red grignette and the Bordelaise?The Bordealise can have its standard razor blade replaced whereas the red grignette has a permanent blade. The Bordelaise allows the user to bend the blade to give a straight or curved cut (good for the undercut for a baguette.
