Product Description

This laser-cut, hand-welded shovel is powder-coated and heat-treated. It's a total of 12" long with a 7" long blade, which measures 2 inches across. It features a rubber handle that's tapered for a great grip.

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.

This Sidekick is blood red.

Designed specifically for metal detecting enthusiasts, the Sidekick really stands out with its unique design and vibrant color.

The Sidekick is a hand-held version rather than a full-size shovel like the Snubnose, Tombstone or Nemesis.

The body 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.

    • ★★★★★ Awesome Digger

    Review by Cavalry Relics on March 1, 2022

    Over the past 20 years, I have used a lot of diggers in my quest to find a heavy-duty and long lasting product. Trust me, I have broke more than my share. This particular product is extremely heavy-duty and very well made. I know this will last for a long time to come. I definitely recommend this product.
    • ★★★★★ Great product

    Review by Cnytenkara on June 6, 2021

    I have not used a ton of diggers, but this tool is heavy duty. This is solidly built and I had no issues going through some pretty dry ground. Having wrist issues while using a simple hori-hori knife, this was a welcomed addition. I did order the sheath direct through Grave Digger site, and again it is a quality product. To me money well spent.

    Q: Some diggers come with a slip on foam cover over the handle. It slides off when trying to rig which is frustrating and annoying. How is the handle cover attached and will it slip off after the first use like my other digger?

    A: Hello Gary, The Gravedigger sidekicks come with a heavy duty rubberized Hunte Wilde handle cover. They are high strength and very comfortable in the hand. Very hard to to twist off and will stay in place after long term use. Thanks for your inquiry!
