Tuna Valley still alive!

The Tuna Valley Cutlery Company was an old Pennsylvania brand that was resurrected by Perry Miller in 2007. Perry had several patterns produced by GEC under this name in the later 2000s. In 2012, Daniels Family Knives purchased the Tuna Valley Cutlery name & working stock. Production has since resumed under the direction of Ken Daniels (co-founder of Great Eastern Cutlery) and his son Ryan Daniels.

Tuna Valley still alive!

Postby Rookie » Mon Dec 24, 2018 1:31 am

Did anyone see the article in the Dec 2018 issue of Knife Magazine that Courtney and Ryan Daniels still have the rights to the Tuna Valley name, and they plan to continue making new releases under this brand. I am excited to see what comes out in 2019.

Do you know who will be making them.
I talked to Ryan Daniels this summer at the Indiana Knife Collectors show in Anderson IN.
He said they would be making Tuna Valley, but he didn't know who would be making them, or at least he wasn't saying.

He said he has a small sized custom maker who is geared up to handle 25-50 piece production runs. He didn't say who, or where, other than saying they are in the US. Once I see him in person, and after a new one has been released, I'll talk with him about it more.

Also, his new website has a very thorough photo gallery of all prior Tuna Valley knives. http://www.danielsfamilyknifebrands.com
