This laser-cut, hand-welded, Vulcan Black 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 Mike Q on April 8, 2020This shovel is one of the strongest shovels I have ever dug with. Not only is capable of cutting thru the biggest of roots, but it has a large enough face to actually move dirt. It also cuts deep so when you want to dig down 8+" in 1 plug you can. I love this shovel and based on how its constructed. I don't see myself ever needing to buy another.
Review by Tinman on October 4, 2019Solid with good welds, heavy powder coating that should give it good character through normal wear in the field, I really dont see much that this shovel can't get through, my buddy is giving up his Lesche to get one of these. Made in The USA .
