Thumbs up Roman version of the Swiss Army knife?!!?!

All I can say is wow!

This is on exhibit at the Fitzwilliam Museum, across the pond.
(No, this museum isn't named after a grip maker who was a former Colt employee. )


Heres the article, with the picture:
The Roman Army Knife: Or how the ingenuity of the Swiss was beaten by 1,800 years | Mail Online

They describe it as a "Roman Army Knife," but only a nobleman could have afforded such a piece.
I figure the membership will appreciate such ancient ingenuity.
