The Roman Army Knife

Invented by the Swiss Romans, these multifunction knives were in use across the Roman empire by 200AD. In addition to a knife, fork and spoon, the knives include a spike "to extract meat from snails" and a spatula for "poking cooking sauce out of narrow-necked bottles". Apparently, Tobasco sauce has been used since time immemorial to make rations edible. More images here.
