Everyone knows that the first modern Swiss Army knives were produced in the 1890’s. However, the idea must have been around for much longer than that, because this knife is considerably older.
What do you think? Two-hundred years old? Four-hundred years old? Actually, this silver multipurpose eating utensil is believed to be a Roman artifact made around 200 AD.
It sports an iron knife blade, a spoon, a fork, a toothpick, a little hook that would come in handy if you want to eat some snails (an ancient Mediterranean delicacy), and a little poker that was probably used to unstop small bottles. Currently, this contraption is on display with other Greek and Roman antiquities at the Fitzwilliam Museum, in Cambridge, England. (H/t Mail Online)
