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.

Two more very attractive Tuna Valley knives ! Rookie do you personally select these ? or does someone at T.V. select ones for you ?
Although all of the Tuna Valley handles look quite desirable, you seem to reliably get some of the best.

Some of them, I knew the pattern was going to be released soon, so I kept my eye on all the dealer sites and bought my favorite ones. Some, I just happened to get lucky with whatever was left. And 2 knives I have bought, then found a nicer one later and bought, and sold the first. I've never had the Daniels set any aside for me, although perhaps I could ask them that next time I see them.

Rookie, another show of great knives by you ! And that was 2 months ago and no one has posted "Thanks".
So, excellent pics of fine knives, Thank you.
I just received this 3 5/8" EO Jack from Franks Classic Knives. Not only is it a beauty with perfect walk & talk and zero blade play, it is also SHARP ! Right on Queen. Excellent knife.

That is a great looking knife KJ. I think the EO single blade teardrop was one of the best TV designs so far, without a doubt in my top 3 favorites. And that run of knives had some of the best mammoth ivory, I love the coloring in it. ::tu::

Great looking stag on that coke bottle! Those knives are simply massive. And the redbone on the GEC made cigar congress is always eyecatching. I often wish they would make another pattern with some jig bone on it, just as a treat every once in a while.

Here are a few shots of the burnt stag sweybelly. These were more of an "autumn" theme, even though it is basically winter now. And check out the nice eggs our chickens give us every afternoon!

Your knives & your pictures are all absolutely first rate. I would call this 2 blade Stag knife a Large or Jumbo Trapper ?
