Camp Knife, Iron Blade, ca. 1st-2nd Cent AD
Iron Blade c. 85mm; with wooden hilt, 175mm.
Con/ The iron blade has been preserved to prevent any further rusting; the wooden hilt is modern. See the final photo for the 'as received' condition of the iron blade.
Seller's Note/ For Roman soldiers, camp knives such as this were a 'must have' for multiple reasons as you may surmise...from cleaning their fingernails to skinning and fleshing animals for food, etc..
