Cutting Mate / cutting board

Cutting Mate
Cutting Mate

When people cut foods, they may not immediately find a cutting board along with a knife. In some rush situations, users may hold the foods and directly cut them. The unintentional action is very dangerous. In order to solve the problem, a foldable cutting board design which can transform into a sheath is proposed. Since a knife always matches a sheath, the knife will always be along with a cutting board. With the magnetic components, the cutting board can be folded as a sheath quickly and firmly. Besides, the magnetic force can keep the knife in the sheath securely.
