Roman Army Knife

This is thought to be from 200 AD.

Trying to determine if it's credible I searched about a bit. It's on Wikipedia which is to be taken with a grain of salt. It has also featured in blog after blog which is the way of these things.

Eventually I found it in the Fitzwilliam Museum collection - - which makes me more confident.

It's interesting how the modern equivalent is for fixing things - whereas the Roman one is for eating.
