I am not sure of the exact origin of the design of the Khan hood, but this example was made by Ken Hooke of Canada. He has taken the design and modernised it for today's wider range of falcons and hawks used in falconry. This model is tooled for decoration but it is a simple working type hood which gives a good fit and is durable for use in the field. For more information visit;

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.
