I was showing the wife a pocket knife I thought was clever as it had a bottle opener built into blade....she sent me this pic she had recently seen. It was dug up in Ireland and dated 200 to 300 AD. The "multi tool" is made of silver and is currently in the Fitzwilliam Collection museum in Cambridge England.
