Does anyone have experience of the gloves made by Falconry Originals? How do they compare with those from Martin Jones?

I would use neither!
But having inspected both, the Falconry originals item is the better glove of the two.

I trawled the stands at the falconry fair and the best gloves by a mile were Doug Pineos but I didnt like the only double thickness gloves he had with him :-(

The Game Hawkers Glove
http://www.m-jhoods.co.uk/images/gamehawkerw.jpg

In the Field
A Falconry Glove in traditional buckskin finish London tan. A proven glove in the field with its high visibility as you call your falcon across. A short cuff allowing jacket cuffs to be tucked inside neatly. A robust buckskin leather that is tough and durable but still allowing you to "feel" the falcon on the glove. In our opinion "the best" Gamehawking glove on the market today.
Build Quality A wonderfully soft yet strong hide and is bound /piped on the cuff with black leather. It also has a brass Dee stitched into the bottom seam to attach a leash etc and comes complete with a metal free tassel. Ideal for small/ medium sized Falcons ( up to & including Peregrine Falcon and similar sized Hybrids). Please state size of hand with order (size 8 and 9 are the average male sizes). We also have Ladies sizes and gloves for Left handed falconers.


The colour of the glove darkens a bit with a good greasing.... here is my Glove next to my old type of glove (leather riding glove)

Ben Long Khan glove, I wouldn't use any other make. Falconry Originals gloves are OK, but I don't like the positioning of the D ring.

I think you have that wrong Tim.......... It's Martin Jones that has the bright yellow gloves not F/Originals..........:rolleyes:

He he, my favb subject lol

Love my Martin jones, they may be yellow but easy to clean, comfortable for the bird and you, except i dont like the d ring - too loose. But I want to get my hands of the falcon crest elk gloves - they look the bees nees. Ben long is ok for displays and stuff but not with the larger and footier birds and the leather is slippery if u get what i mean. Like the d rings though - nice and secure.
If you have smaller or med bird, then get a double layer kangaroo - so thin and lightweight its great in summer, but the talons wont get through and you have ace controll on the jesses and swivel etc only prob is you feel the pressure a lot more and bruising is easier. But def a fantastic glove.

One day I shall make the perfect glove for myself!!!

He he!

lol!


Another glove is the ones from the czeq rep. The single thickness layer is a good 4mm and barly penetrable and bare in mind most are double they are a seriously good glove - nice d rings, tight stictching, stand out, decent length, quite comfortable and actually quite flexable. Best of all they are only about 15 i think - fantastic value.

Thanks to all who replied,your comments have been helpful.I don't need a new glove immediately but was anxious to hear your opinions before letting the moths escape from my wallet.From previous experience ; M. Jones and one or two others who seem not to be around any more made nice gloves, but I've not been to the Falconry Fair in recent years and so was unable to compare those currently on offer.I prefer deerskin to cowhide.I thought Falcon Crest were comfortable when I tried one many years ago-are they really made of "elk skin" as claimed or is it just deer/buckskin?

Yarak, Go back and read the whole thread :rolleyes:
I was agreeing with you :rolleyes:

You will find I am well aware of who the yellow glove man is :yawinkle:

Having had two of his gloves as a child I well remember what colour they are and also know I do not wish to own another :yawinkle:
