If you’re going out hunting, a cutting board is a necessary accessory to bring to camp. How else are you going to skin, chop, and slice your catch like a civilized man, after all? If you only plan to hunt ducks, rabbits, and other small game, though, then a compact board should be enough to serve your needs. A space-optimized option like Gerber’s Freescape Camp Kitchen Kit could probably do the trick.
While it looks like a plastic suitcase, that green slab is actually designed to serve as a durable cutting board that, Gerber claims, will be an “obvious improvement over the second-hand version” people usually find at camp. More than a cutting board, though, it doubles as a knife case, with a pair of the company’s Freescape knives nestled in an integrated drawer, ready to serve all your cutting needs.
The Gerber Freescape Camp Kitchen Kit comes in a bright green color to make it easy to spot in a huge pile of stash, with a cutting surface measuring 10.1 x 8.2 inches that should serve most any small game slicing duties. The integrated locking drawer comes with three sections – one for the included kitchen knife with a santoku-inspired blade shape, one for the included paring knife, and an empty large compartment that you can use to bring antibacterial wipes or, better yet, a cleaver. Features include a built-in ceramic sharpener, non-slip rubber footing, and a handle that lets you carry the whole thing like a mini-suitcase.
Available now, the Gerber Freescape Camp Kitchen Kit is priced at $52.
