This laser-cut, hand-welded, Venom Green shovel is powder-coated and heat-treated. These blades are CNC machine-sharpened, so use caution while you're using it. The edges are sharp!
The blade is 10 inches long and 5 inches wide. The total length of this shovel is 36 inches.
The Tombstones have a longer blade than the other shovel options and have the longest overall length available.
These shovels measure a 50 on the Rockwell scale, which is a scale that describes the hardness of a metal. That translates to ultimate durability, excellent longevity, and superior ground penetration.
These shovels were designed specifically for metal detecting enthusiasts!
The handle of the shovel is diamond-shaped instead of round, which makes it three times stronger! It's notched with a diamond-shaped gusset between the handle and the blade for added support, and the serrated edge and tip make digging easier, especially if you encounter any kind of roots or rock.
Grave Digger Tools are made in the USA in small, handcrafted batches. The maker, Eric Wallace, focuses on quality over quantity and pays attention to all the little details.
He began metal detecting after he bought a home built in 1864. Inspired by TV shows that showed people detecting, he purchased a detector and started the hunt. It wasn't long, though, before the shovel he was using broke.
With a background in industrial equipment, he decided to make a few shovels himself.
The rest is history.

Review by John on October 17, 2020After digging everything by hand and only able to do couple hour sessions it was time for an upgrade. The Tombstone looked right.
It makes digging so much easier, and I’ve never dug cleaner plugs. The roots, within reason, are no match.
My only complaint would be sub par powder coat but on a digging tool it won’t last any how.
Review by Jake on December 20, 2019These shovels are HARDCORE! I've broken many shovels but I've had one of these for bout 4 years and have used it doing g everything from digging small plugs in the ground, to using it as a pry bar for boulders and it wont dent or bend or break. Strongest shovel out there hands down. Very pleased. The only reason I bought a new one, is because it's a Christmas present to my friend Chris. He lost his lol. Check us out at #SouthernRelics on YouTube. And as always a big THANK YOU to KellyCo for the fast shipping, awesome customer service and great products.
Review by Mike R on November 9, 2019Before I spend nearly $100 (with shipping) on a shovel - for any purpose - I am going to look at everything available and insure that my investment is going to last, do everything it should and hopefully show off a little "me" in the process. The Tombstone model is Grave Digger Tools largest blade, and like most people who really pound the ground everywhere they go, I have a good front line digging tool. This is head and shoulders above the competition, and with the gorgeous Venom Green powder coat it shows off the fact that I did invest in a digging tool long term, likely for a lifetime. The build quality is beyond compare. Nobody else puts as much time into each and every item they make, and it shows. Eric makes - by far - the best digging tools. I can't say enough about just how much I love the obvious amount of time and talent that went into my own Tombstone. I believe that there will be more colors available soon, likely a beautiful powder blue and an awesome royal purple blade. I am certain that my wife will be seeing one of those in the Nemesis size soon.
