original TUNA VALLEY

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.

If anyone is interested in owning an original TUNA VALLEY from the early 1900's, I have a contact. Pearl and in excellent condition. I think the price is about $800 which is a fair amount for this super rare piece. Not mine, I make nothing, just thought I would pass this on. contact me and I can hook you up.

Hi, I believe that my grandfather is the person you are referring to. We met at the Case show in July. If anyone here has questions about it, or if they want to see a picture, I should be able to get one. Thanks.

I finally remembered to bring my camera today when I went to my grandfathers. Here is the knife. 1906 Tuna Valley (Case Bros.) pearl ladies knife, very rare, very petite.

One mistake though, it was not "CASE BROS" this was the collaboration of Case of Bradford and Platt's of Eldred when they combined. They competed with CASE BROS and eventually won by buying them out.
