Roman multifunctional knife


All-rounder of the ancient world


Amazing! If you think pocket knives are a modern invention. But as the Roman pocket knife proves, gifted craftsmen of antiquity built true multi-functional knives 1800 years ago. Again and again this wealth of ideas of the ancient master craftsmen inspires. The original for this reproduction of the Roman pocket knife was made of silver and an iron (steel) blade. It probably belonged to a Roman officer, as simple legionnaires could rarely afford such marvels of technology.
  • Replica made of brass
  • Spoon fold-out
  • Total length unfolded approx. 21cm
  • steel blade approx. 7cm long
  • a full-fledged pocket knife
As in many things, the greatness of Roman craftsmanship is shown here in small details. This practical knife proves that innovation and technology can last for many centuries. Make sure you get the astonished faces when you show your Roman pocket knife. Tell them that this is a replica of a nearly 2000 year old knife. Show your students in technical lessons how filigree work was done back then.
