Ancient Roman Multi-tool

GR.1.1991(2).jpg
This is high tech from way back in the day. This is a utensil from the days of the Roman armies.  When I saw it, I just had to do a post on it.
This device is 88mm tall and 155mm long and dates from between A.D 201 to A.D. 300
It is an "eating implement, folding, with three-pronged fork, spatula, pick, spike and knife".  I'm guessing this was probably the early version of the Roman Army Leatherman.
