Jim Baker was a legend among mountain men. Friends with the like of Kit Carson and Jim Bridger, Baker was said to be brave and loyal to a fault. Baker also led a life of adventure. From battling with Native American Indians, to scouting for a railroad survey party in Salt Lake, to rescuing the daughter of a Shoshone chief. Jim Baker’s stories and adventures go on and on. This is the reason we have named this handmade Damascus steel skinner after him.

Don’t let the compact form of this knife fool you. Weighing in at 8 ounces, this is definitely a man's man knife. Full tang with just over a 4” blade, this knife has the perfect weight for a skinning knife and has been built for utility and function. The flat belly and skinner tip make this knife very easy to control and the large handle gives you plenty of leverage. A brass bolster with finger guard gives you plenty of control over the knife while protecting your fingers as well. We like to think that Jim Baker would be very pleased to have this knife named after him and would have loved to have this knife accompany him through his many adventures. 

Made of 1095 and 15n20 steels, the high carbon content of 1095 gives this knife an extremely sharp and durable edge and makes it the ideal choice for a skinning knife. We also have a more compact skinner called the Colter  with a Walnut Handle if the natural wood look appeals to you.

Jim Baker Skinner Knife

Very nice knife overall. The brass pommel could have been polished a little better. There were faint scratches all over it. I will have to wait a few more months to really find out how good the knife is when I skin a deer.

Why Forseti Steel?

Each Knife is Unique

All of our knives are made by hand and crafted one at a time. That is why no two knives are the same. The knife you receive will be similar to what you see on our site, but will be unique based on the natural materials used and individual craftsman that built the knife.

Beautiful, true Damascus steel knives. They set the table with elegance and class.

Love this knife! Compact design, nice grip, feels comfortable in your hand--very sharp blade! As a side for the ladies--it fits in the smallest of bags. You won't be disappointed if you buy it!
