Camping always sounds great in theory, right? Hit the open road with a bunch of close friends, roast some smores by the campfire, sleep under the stars; perfect. In practice, however, things don’t usually go quite so swimmingly. I’m thinking hands and legs torn to shreds by poison ivy, wrestling with my tent like I’m going toe-to-toe with The Rock, and sporadic torrential rain, all while trying to prepare food with a bent butter knife.
Sound familiar? Well, look no further, because Japanese outdoor lifestyle company Snow Peak has all your camping and cooking needs covered with its beautifully considered chopping board set. Built from solid birch, the set includes a foldable cutting board and a high carbon stainless steel knife, perfect for making light work of those pesky veggies while out in the sticks. The cutting board also doubles up as the carry case for this set, a clever and minimal design that we’ve come to expect from camping connoisseurs Snow Peak.
Let’s be honest, the Snow Peak chopping board set isn’t going to make your tent struggles any easier or magically control the weather, but it’s going to ensure that you’re at least eating good. One thing at a time, right?
