Default Packable/lightweight plate or cutting boards



Advertise Here

Been inspired by the Show us your steak challenge series on Utube and am looking for a lightweight packable plate or cutting board with a handle that I can slice meat, eat from, wash easily and then put it back in the backpack till next time. I want something that is wood or plastic that won't dull the knife when I slice the meat. Any Ideas?

I have been camping for most of my life but usually eat my meals out of a can or freeze dried stuff from a bowl.

I bought some flexible plastic cutting board sheets about 8 yrs ago and have one in the bugout bag. I figure it also makes a dry place to sit perhaps.

By far the best option I've found that works as both a bowl and cutting board is the Fozzils Bowlz:



They have a plate, cup, and bowl. I much prefer the bowl as it's only 1.3oz, holds three cups of water, and when unfolded, serves as a cutting board that is about 9 x 10". Simply excellent as a cutting board and folding bowl. I was skeptical of the folding "snaps", but they have held up well on my oldest bowl that is about 6-7 years old and numerous uses.

For backpacking, I scrutinize weight, utility, and multi-use. These folding bowls (Bowlz?) are superior to anything I've used in the past for a cutting board and the utility of the bowl (or plate) is second to none.

In my experience a sharp knife will cut through the thin flex boards with out you being very careful!

Making something out of thin hardwood should be pretty easy!

I found a large 14x14 bamboo cutting board from Bed Bath & Beyond, plan is to cut out a shape like a frying pan on the band saw then use my router to cut a juice ring around the perimeter to keep meat juice from running off of it.
Also found a large sheet of 1/4" plastic I might try the same with that.

Two for a buck at 99 cent & dollar stores.
Tough as nails, makes a dry seat on wet surfaces, curl into a funnel, use as a plate & ultralight cutting board.
Have one (1) in every pack.
