This laser-cut, hand-welded, Vulcan Black Snubnose 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 on the Snubnose is 7 inches long and 3.5 inches wide. The total length of this shovel is 27 inches.
The Snubnoses have a triangle-shaped blade.
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 edges 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 diggerjay on December 5, 2019Though I have not used shovel yet(NEW ENGLAND..foot of snow on the ground right now), I have seen these shovels used in person and borrowed one for a day as well. GREAT tool for fields and woodlands....cuts through sod and such with ease. Shipping was fast, and secure!! Can't wait til the snow clears to use my very own!!!
