Handmade Roman utility knife with decorative bone hilt. The blade has the typical curvature of a Roman knife. The curve allows for the use of more force when cutting because of additional pressure with index finger or thumb on the blunt back of the blade. Knives of this type and in different sizes, were found in military as well as civilian archeological sites.
