New Announcement from the The Daniels Family !!!

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.

Hmm, I sharpen all my knives with a Lansky system and use a 25 degree angle.

I've had some 1095 carbon steel knives that will cut all day and touch up with ease, then I have some others that are tough as nails to sharpen and loose the edge quickly. I don't understand it, but I guess it's just the nature of the beast.

Metal mixes and hardening even with modern technology are not an absolutely exact or perfect science. If you add in the fact that the largest metal supplier in the world Mittal steel is an Indian company the odds go all over the place depending upon what plant the metal comes from. We used to have the same problem with aluminum. It all met the specifications but the specifications all have a high end and a low end.

As of June 4 we are in negoations to purchase Queen Cutlery Co. / Schatt & Morgan where if succesful we will be taking over all operations. Everything is just in negoations and nothing is final yet but once happen I think you'll see lots of new and exciting USA made lines which we have always been committed to.

Hope you dont turn it into another TV or GEC with limited high priced knives and no standard production ones!! ::tu:: John :D

I'm curious to know if transfering ownership has taken place. It's been a few weeks since the original announcement.
