What is a good "all-use" type of shovel, if I can carry only one?
You will want a shovel that does the job efficiently, even delicately, so it does not disturb the surrounding vegetation too much. After all, many times you will be detecting on lands other than your own. Yet you want a shovel that is sturdy and reliable as well. A good multi-use shovel would be lightweight, yet sturdy enough to handle multiple soil materials without damaging the vegetation near by or the find.
Does the type of soil matter when choosing the best shovel for metal detecting in my area?
Yes. You would not use the same tool to sift through sand as you would compacted clay. These are just two extremes, though. You may come across various type of topography in a single day. The some shovels are designed to break through tough terrain with a pointed edge, while folding up neatly while you are exploring. Others are great for softer sandy jobs because of their narrow size and ease of control.
What types of shovels are both portable and sturdy?
Many of our shovels fold up into a portable size; however, this does not mean a compromise on structural integrity. Each product offered is tested for longevity and sturdiness because we know you do not want to be stranded with a sub-par tool just when you find a treasure waiting to be dug.
