    "Mc Cuaig" - A double thickness medium-long cuff finished in buckskin. This affords good protection from all but the strongest talons and is particularly recommended for Harris' hawks. We also recommend that all leather/buckskin products are treated annually with Ko cho line grease. This affords good waterproofing and enables the glove to be kept clean.

    We offer a range of bags from 3 different manufacturers. The first is finished in hard wearing canvas and features double pockets, jess holding eyes and a detachable belt clip.

    The Bob Green Belt (n'braces) Clip

    A must for the serious field falconer. This clip suits the falconer for whom a long chase after a slipped hawk is a regular occurrence and who could do without the flapping & sliding bag that a shoulder strap affords on these occasions. No messers please!

    Blocks and Bow perches

    We offer blocks in a range of sizes. They are designed to be economical and hard wearing. The wood element is made in two pieces. The top part has drain holes to facilitate easy cleaning and will mean the standing area cannot become waterlogged.
