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.
I'm sure everyone has read about a bad apple employee that made some deals involving Tuna Valley Cutlery knives then left everyone hanging. Well I was one of those that got scammed by the bad apple employee. The Daniels family, Ken, Ryan, and Courtney made things right with me for the deal that the bad apple employee scammed me on. I'm well satisfied with the results I got from Tuna Valley Cutlery and the Daniels family. I'm also glad they weeded out the bad apple employee so he doesn't do this type of thing to anyone else here on AAPK or anywhere else. Thank you very much Daniels family for standing up for Tuna Valley Cutlery and making things right. Folks, I don't think the Daniels family had any part of the scams that the bad apple employee done. I believe they will do what's in their power to right any wrongs. As far as I'm concerned Tuna Valley Cutlery has a clean slate with me and I look forward to buying Tuna Valley knives in the future.
Well said Aimus. I told him NOT to,....but here is what Ryan sent me. Ryan, this is WAY above and beyond what you needed to do. Classy move all the way, not sure I could have done the same if things were reversed.....THANK YOU, it won't be forgotten.
This is easily ony of the finest knives I have so far.
Ryan Daniels is a great guy, we are lucky to have him as a member of this forum and as a leader in the knife world. His product is spot on and when mistakes are made he is quick to fix them, even when they aren't his.
