These knives were made by Khauvkei the man shown in this photograph. Who lived in Ulgii, the capitol of Bayan Ulgii in western Mongolia. I purchsed one of his last knives in 2001, the sheath is made from wood and is contoured inside to the shape of the blade, which is of carbon steel and keeps a fine edge. The handle of the knife is horn and often from the Ibex. For more information visit: www.eaglefalconer.com

About Us

The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
