The Legionary's best Friend
Pocketknives are not an invention of modern day Switzerland. Pocket knives have been around far longer than that. Even the old Romans had devices very similar to modern pocket knives. Nevertheless, they were considerably more rare than they are today. They were complicated to manufacture and very prone to damages. They usually were reserved for higher ranking officers or given to legionaries as a token of gratitude or some other special reward.
Ancient pocketknives basically share the same features with modern pocketknives. There are non big differences in design and use. The item at hand has several little handy tools attached to it that help to make the legionary's life easier. It comes with a spoon, a knife and several hooks that can be used for a multitude of activities ranging from personal hygiene to making fire.
This handy little tool is especially practical for reenactors and people roleplaying as legionaries. Everyone will be jealous and want their own Roman style pocketknife. It is also suited for people in the Steam Punk community and makes for a great gift for boys of all ages.
