From Ben Esely
“B.O.B is the first ever cutting board with a built-in bottle opener. Great for the beach, boating, camping, tailgating or even at home.”
The idea of a great-looking, bamboo cutting board came from two guys, Pablo Baquero and Josh Lochner who have 20 years of product design experience. While Pablo has worked for some larger companies throughout the world, he recently started his own product design firm. Josh has been product/brand consulting for small businesses and working on freelance projects throughout the US.
“B.O.B was dreamt up over 2 years ago at one of our frequent visits to Chipotle. We ordered beer to complement our lunch, but unfortunately they were still capped. Josh quickly reached for a beer and popped the top off with the tray the food was on. Pablo was intrigued by this, but knew there had to be a better way. The rest of lunch consisted of ideation with high-tech napkin sketches. We don’t know if it was the delicious burritos or the cold beer, but something just clicked that day and from then on we both knew the Bottle Opener Board must become a reality.”
I enjoy long hike trips and could see a lightweight and antimicrobial cutting board being very useful. How many times have you spent some of your limited pack weight on a steak for that first night and had to use your camp knife as your only means to eat it? This little bad boy could be a useful prep board or plate, not to mention having a bottle opener readily available.
Josh and Pablo could use your help. They launched on Kickstarter to get B.O.B. built. Check out what they’re giving away for contributions.
