ABOUT THE BRAND
While most are familiar with a knight’s common protective gear, like his armor, shield, chain mail, and jousting staff, an elusive creature has played a vital role in the knight’s arsenal. The Knight Hawk helped keep the knight safe by searching the battlefield, warning of the danger ahead, and attacking his prey. These intimidating birds of prey used their exceptional vision and speed to secure victories on the battlefield. In tandem with the knight and the warhorse, the falcon knight forms a formidable trio which is the epitome of the warrior class.
The Knight Hawk is guided by the Vegas Star. As long as the star is in sight, the knight will always find his way home.
During the battle in the dark of night, the Knight Hawk is still looking down from above. Moments before it strikes, the Knight Hawk is illuminated from behind by the Vegas Star. When the opponent can see the gold in his eyes, he knows defeat is imminent.
