When I was a kid, it was called the baker's nose.

I've always called them heels and do the same. I keep waiting for my wife to catch on to this but she hasn't so far and she will use it straight off. I consider them to be best part to save until the end.

When we bought bread it was  the heel. Now Tata makes all our bread  it's the end.

I eat the end first . Best part, then put in Ziplock and stand on cut end - stays fresher.

Bakers nose, heel, what on earth are you lot on about?  In proper English it's the crust.

 The crust is the exterior,  interior is called the crumb, what'\ the end is called depends on where you're from - including Dobie.

Yep, It's always been called nothing more complicated than..."..................The end bit"...... in my House (England, Australia, and now the Philippines,,,,and yes I leave it to last on the presumption it keeps the remaining fresh...

This slice was an end slice of a form baked bread. Without form, breads are much more streamlined, like modern wans.

My mother made much our own breads and she cut of what she called "skalk". As you (probably) know do many English and Nordic words have same origin.

English: SKULL. Norwegian: SKALLE.  Top of head of a human. Pronunciations are totally equal. Ok, so far so good, just add a k for the Norwegians and there we are.

Funny people this Norwegians; When drinking, they say SKULL. Not cheers, not gesundheit, no. SKULL. Were Vikings drinking from beheaded  enemies skulls?

Nobody to ask this days....
