Wire Monkey Lame - UFO Nux


The UFO Nux (Latin for nut) is twice the thickness of the other UFOs and has much deeper sculpted grooves, which makes it easier to open and tighten. The design was inspired by the moon jellyfish.If you are considering one of my circular style lames and you have any type of hand disability, this is the best model for you.

Be aware that the UFO Nux will fit into the UFO Holster, but it's a snug fit.

All UFOs are made in Wire Monkey's family owned small shop in Fairfield, Connecticut USA. Wire Monkey believes 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 (if you are a blade holder, you know what I'm talking about).
  • Designed and made in the good old USA.

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 our 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. 

Happy Scoring!
