America's Birthday is coming up next week and we bought a shiny new barbeque from Walmart to help us celebrate the day. We did
not want anything expensive and this "Expert Grill"...
....fit the bill at $19.97. It is 17.4 inches which is great for what we need. Just some burgers and dogs and BAM! We are good! It is going to be a beautiful day.
It is Knife Day again here at El Rancho De La Tex!
Today's knife is one that I bought because, well, it's a SCREAM,
baby (if'n ya know what I mean). It is the Buck Model 119. As far as I know
there are two models, the 119 and the 119 Special. I think the Special has
a longer blade. That's really all I think I know about this knife and I could be totally full of it. The 119 has been produced since 1942.
My 119 came with a cordura sheath which I don't love, for this knife anyway. I would have rather had leather. There is a plastic sleeve in the sheath and the knife rattles around inside of it, making a lot of noise.
Anyway, this knife is really common and there are those who love them, and those who hate them (the synthetic resin handle material). I am just happy to own one.
