About


Outdoor cooking gear featuring the first full-sized, professional grade folding Chef’s Knife on the market!

Reinvent campsite cooking with the Adventure Chef Collection. Easily prepare fresh food with the tools you carry with you wherever you go. Outfit yourself with full-size kitchen knives that are compact, portable & most of all, the same Messermeister chef grade quality used in the kitchen. We’ve selected unique natural and sustainable handle materials that are ergonomic, balanced, and rugged enough to be used outdoors. 




 "Whenever I’m out in the wild and I know I can only bring a few things, I need to be selective so they don’t weigh me down on route to my destination.

Being that I always cook fresh food wherever I am, having a collection of compact tools to do the job was essential. I used to bring a bulky kitchen knife roll and my utility pocket knife on all my trips, even though wishing there was a better idea out there. Since I couldn’t find a chef grade solution I decided to design one myself. Enter the Adventure Chef Collection. A chef grade folding kitchen knife and set that stays with me wherever I go. I decided to partner with Messermeister for manufacturing since they are an industry favorite known for high-end quality in cutlery, kitchen tools, and luggage.

I wanted to bring my cause to Kickstarter because I know there are others like me that would like to make my dream a reality. With help from other people we can bring this product to adventure cooks everywhere and make their kitchen a whole lot bigger!" — Adventure Chef Adam Glick




For the Chef’s Knife design, we looked carefully at the edge geometry to give us the best hand clearance and contact with the board. The wide 6” blade is balanced at the bolster for perfect control while for chopping or slicing, and the edge is ground to a razor sharp 15-degree. An open frame design allows water to flow through the handle slot for thorough and easy cleaning. We have also included a locking mechanism in the handle liner to keep the blade safely in place when in use. The blade is made from German 1.4116 steel so that you can easily re-sharpen your knife and use it for a lifetime.

The key to a great Fillet Knife is a thin, flexible blade to make sharp clean cuts. The 6-inch German steel blade on our fillet knife is ground to a razor sharp 15-degree edge. We used barrel spacers to create an open frame design that allows water to flow through the handle slot, making the knife easy to clean. The fillet knife also integrates our liner lock system to keep the blade safely in place while in use. The blade is made from German 1.4116 steel so that you can easily re-sharpen your knife and use it for a lifetime.

Our folding Camp Utensil is the essential tool for dining outdoors, its compact design houses a full-sized spoon, steak knife and fork. Of course, no design for the campsite is complete without a bottle opener, so we included that too. The utensils are made from high grade surgical stainless steel.

 For small tasks, we combined a paring knife with a peeler and even snuck in a fish scaler. It’s the perfect prep tool for the camp kitchen or RV.  The drop point paring blade is 3 ½ inches long. The double-action peeler locks in place when open and can be used either right or left-handed.

Since we are taking our kit outdoors, it is crucial that the board resists warping, shrinking and swelling so we made it from durable TPE. The cutting board is cold/heat resistant from -4˚F to 248˚F (-20˚C to 120˚C). The faux wood grain board opens to 10.75" (27.3 cm) x  9.5" (24 cm) and is 0.25" thick. After you slice and dice food on the cutting board, it doubles as a funnel to channel the food into a skillet.


  • Length (unfolded):  10.750"
  • Width (unfolded):  9.500"
  • Thickness:  .250"
  • Weight:  13 oz. 

The Adventure Chef sets come in a 16 oz. waxed canvas case that is both durable and beautiful. It closes with a durable, plastic YKK zipper that will not be affected by the elements. The case has two pockets for the Chef's Knife and Fillet Knife, an elastic band and pocket for the cutting board, and two elastic bands to hold the Peeler & Parer and Camp Utensil. 




CARBONIZED MAPLE HANDLES WITH A CLASSIC BLADE FINISH

Carbonized Maple is sustainable wood that has been naturally stabilized by baking it.  It resists shrinking or swelling. These knives have a classic, bright blade finish. The Carbonized Maple sets come in a dark denim blue canvas case.

BURLAP HANDLES WITH A STONEWASH BLADE FINISH

Burlap handles, are made from repurposed burlap sacks that have been pressed together with resin. We applied a stonewashed finish to the blade by tumbling it with ceramic pebbles to give it a rustic look. The Burlap sets come in a dark steel gray canvas case.


Chef Adam Glick and Messermeister have been designing and testing the Adventure Chef products for over the last 1.5 years. It started with the Chef's & Fillet Knife and product assortment expanded from there. Adam took these products across the country over 4 times in his van, to the Caribbean, and even overseas on a boat in the Mediterranean. He used and tested the Adventure Chef products hundreds of times.



Burlap handles made from repurposed fiber sacks that have been pressed together with resin. We applied a stonewashed finish to the blade by tumbling it with ceramic pebbles to give it a rustic look.

Our blades are made out of our classic 1.4116 German Steel, which is prized for its toughness and ability to hold a great edge.

Risks and challenges

Our goal is to deliver the first production batch of Adventure Chef sets in early November 2019! Unlike many crowdfunding projects, we have already invested in production tooling so the timeline to delivery is drastically shortened and many of the unknowns are already behind us. It’s worth noting here that the sooner you order your set, the sooner it will be shipped to you. Orders will be fulfilled first come, first served.
