Gurkha Officer's Patch Knife

The Kukri - The image shown is actually modern British army issue. It is issued to one of the most feared units in the British army: the Gurkhas. It is their weapon of choice in close combat, rather than the bayonet. The Gurkhas hail from Nepal which was part of India. In its Empire building days, Britain made India one of its colonies. The Gurkhas were recruited into the colonial Indian army as a “Martial Race”, a term which meant that they were not classed as mercenaries.
