Knives I'd like to see from 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.

Knives I'd like to see from Tuna Valley

Postby Gunstock Jack » Sat Mar 10, 2012 8:48 pm

This old jack knife was made by ? for Simmonds Saw Co. way back when. This is a great working pattern and I like the pen blade up front and square tangs. I'd like to see Tuna Valley make a similar model in bone or stag with a tricked out shield, like a fancy gimp or something neat. A clip blade version would be cool if it can be configured with the pen up front! (I don't like having to turn the knife over to choose the pen blade, but that's just me!) ::super_happy::

That's a interesting shield does that have a little sway at the end? I have always loved old jacks I just looked at a very interesting Diamond Edge jack. Man they made sone cool stuff!

With a name like Tuna Valley I would expect at least one folding fish knife. ::super_happy:: Jacks like that one are at the top of my list as well as coke bottle jacks.

No sway in the shield, just a straight bar shield with notches. No tang stamp. ::shrug::

No the end of the knife its self. I think that it has a slight swey to it like unique swey belley trapper.

It does look like it has a flat spine and up-swept top edge on the scales.

Nope, just an illusion. The knife frame is flat on both sides like a typical sleeveboard.

I would love to see a Copperhead, like the one Queen and Boker makes. It reminds me of a medium folding hunt, but I love the pattern. ::tu::
It sounds like great stag is going to be a common thing, so I think that we could really see some great stuff. ::tu::
