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.

Yeah, all the mammoth used on any Tuna release was fluted. Kind of a neat feature that I haven't seen on any other production knives, only sometimes on customs. I'll try to get a few more shots of that cattleman.

Thanks, it is a work of art. After I received my Rigid knives set made by Canal Street and saw the amber stag bone they used, I started hunting for more amber bone stag or amber stag knives. This is going to be an interesting collection. I like the amber stag that Tuna Valley has as well so I will be adding more in the future. It should be interesting seeing all the different versions of this handle material when it’s all said and done.

That's really nice. The punch can be a very useful tool as well.

Sharpnshinyknives,
Your T.V. amber stag cattleman's knife is very fine, a tribute to American cutlers skill. Enjoy!

Nice knives and great pictures.

I was hoping this would be a post showing the Phoenix Jack. I'm beginning to wonder if it will be released in 2019. Have you heard any news about what is going on and why it is delayed?
