It's tool related, but it's not really something for the "Pro Hangout". People and our opposable thumbs are just so clever at times.

Cool Shaughnn. I read about that yesterday and thought maybe we should be calling them roman army knives from now on. :shrug:

Glad you appreciated it too, Dana. Here's the thing I haven't hieard mentioned anywhere yet. The level of ornamentation on this thing suggests that it was a somewhat commonplace item, so much so that people dressed theirs up a bit. as I understand the evolution of tools is "function/form/fashion". Because this has very deliberate ornamentation elements, my guess is that it's gone through at least several generations of use before this example was made.
Pretty exciting!!!!
