    Yo Switzerland, I'm happy for you and I'ma let you finish, but the Romans had the best folding knife of all time. OF ALL TIME!

    Okay, so it's not Swiss, and it's not an army knife, since it's actually cutlery, but "Roman Civilian Folding Flatware" lacks that certain ring to it.

    The Roman Folding Multiutensil.

    And here it is:

    I like how it has a built in TORCH/PAINTBRUSH. Useful when you're in a dark cave or need to paint on the go.
    (That trident and shoehorn is nice too.)

    I demand mass produced replications now!!! I want to shove this in my pocket, stab myself, and proceed to slowly die from blood loss!

    That's going a bit far just to dye something. Might I suggest some alternative natural dyes?
