It is a knot for tying donkeys. I would never tie a hawk with it. The testing I did was in imitation of a hawk bating a few times. If your knot is so good why have I never seen it in a falconry book? It is also no easier to tie than the proper falconry knot.

This comes in usefull when later they have a bird on the fist and keep the left arm in the correct position.. This was how I was taught. Atvb Yorkie..

Paul, or whoever ... I'm convinced that you do not make the right steps for knot I show you. You fail in something.
Obviously you can make the knot that makes you happy, of course, but do not say that my knot is not good if you do not make it correctly.
That's the falconer's knot. The knot I do are modified in the first steps, but in the circle that picture I attached is the same.
I hereby conclude my explanation for you.

No, it is not the same. The real falconer's knot is on the right. Yours on the left.
