Tuna Valley Picture Show

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.

Thanks Edge! I think taking pics and sharing them with everyone is as much fun as hunting for the missing ones. There are always more to look for!

I may have mentioned this here before, but I'll say it again.
I don't own a single Tuna Valley, but this is one of my favorite threads.

Keeping with the group shot idea. This is one I took yesterday of the 6 variations of the Cigar from 2010 and 2012.

Took a while, but I finally got a nice photo of my Phoenix Jack in burnt stag with damascus blade.

I also got some shots of a nice 2017 prototype that was never made. Boys Jack Knife in Lightning Wood.
