Designed specifically for metal detecting enthusiasts, the Sidekick really stands out with its unique design and vibrant color.
This laser-cut, hand-welded, Illusion Orange shovel is powder-coated and heat-treated. The shovel has a total length 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 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.
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.
