    The Roman Multi Tool

    [IMG][/IMG]

    The above image is an 1,800 year old Roman gadget with 6 different purposes. It is made of silver with an iron blade and includes a spoon, fork, spike, spatula, toothpick, and of course, blade. The item was probably made between AD 200 and AD 300, when the Roman empire was a great imperial power. The item was found more than 20 years ago and was obtained by the Fitzwilliam Museum, in Cambridge England in 1991.

    The Roman multi-tool is amazing, the cooking pots are beautiful, and the donut queen made me laugh. Well done, sir!

    Looks like you could still cook with everything here todayl, including doughnut girl, but not the multi-tool which wouldn't scare Victorinox at all I'm afraid.

    Norfolk Knife which was made by the Sheffield cutlers, Joseph Rodgers & Sons, for the 1851 Great Exhibition in London. It took two years to make, has over seventy blades, and was named in honour of the Duke of Norfolk, Lord of the Manor of Hallam. The Norfolk Knife has been exhibited all over the world, winning medals from Chile to China. The Knife is owned by Egginton Brothers, cutlery manufacturers in Sheffield, and is on loan to the Cutlers' Company.

    It's nice but, to me, it's not quite versatile enough, don't you think?

    Hadn't seen the roman multitool, but was aware of the norfolk knife. I have always loved them, I carry a vic and a leatherman everyday.
    The roman multitool is just awesome!
