Most people are familiar with the ill fated story of Shackleton’s ship being stuck in the ice of the south pole. But most aren’t familiar with how they were rescued. For almost a year Shackleton and his crew were stranded near Elephant Island and survived on penguin, seal and whale meat. Shackleton and five of his men set sail for South Georgia in a long boat. The ice-packed voyage was over 800 miles. Unfortunately they landed on the uninhabited southern coast and had to traverse a mountain range to reach a small whaling station. Shackleton immediately began to work on a rescue effort for his men. After almost a year and a half being marooned in the antarctic, his crew was rescued and they all returned home. 

The long handle and deep belly blade make this Damascus knife the perfect tool for skinning and field work. Made of 1095 and 15n20 Damascus steel, the blade is hand-finished to a razor’s edge. The profile of the knife reminds us of the strength and steadfastness of a man like Shackleton while the form, balance and design would be appreciated by someone like Shackleton and his crew who survived off the land. We also have a more compact skinner with a Walnut Handle or bit more beefy skinner with a sharp, durable edge, the Jim Baker Skinner.
