Lesche LS Digging Cutting Tool with Sheath
Offered in Two Serration Versions Depending on How you Dig and What Hand you Use
This heavy duty digger will break through most soils and even small roots to retrieve your treasure. The digging tool has a comfortable rubber grip handle with hand guard plate. The hand guard plate is to protect your hand from sliding down on the digging part of the tool. Alloy steel blade is heat treated and tempered for long edge life and resists rust. Blade size: 2x7" and 11.5" overall. Includes a handy cordura belt holder with plastic insert for carrying.
The Lesche Digging tools are offered in two versions, (RS) for Right Serration and (LS) for Left Serration. Depending on how you dig and what hand you use, choose either an (RS) or (LS) depending on what side of the digger’s blade you want to be the primary blade side. Example: If you dig with your Right hand most Right-handed people will dig their plugs in a Clockwise direction so you might choose the (LS) version if you want the serrations on the primary digging side or the (RS) if you prefer the non-serrated side as primary. For a Left-handed person if needed the serrations to be the primary side you would choose the (RS) because most Left-handed people tend to plug in a counter-clockwise direction. Bottom line is choosing the version that most closely fits your digging style.

Review by Dan on August 21, 2019I've had my Lesche digger tool for 5 years and I do detect alot during the cooler months. Before buying my Lesche I was breaking, bending, and burning up other similarly sized digging tools. However a larger tool is needed in hard soils.
Review by Rbennett62 on August 20, 2019Without question this is the best made single hand digger I've ever purchased. The offset blade takes a little getting used to but once you do it's easy to cut plugs, dig holes, and makes quick work of most roots.
Review by THing4CSA on August 20, 2019Hi All My Fellow Treasure Hunters (TH'ers)
I have owned so many digging tools over the past 43 years that all I will tell you is buy the Lesche digging trowel and you will always have the best digging hand trowel made. My first purchase of the Lesche hand trowel was not a purchase; I had returned my Lesche 28 inch digging shovel after I broke the weld and bent the blade by abusing it in frozen ground! I cut a six inch circle in totally frozen ground and attempted to extract a nine inch deep plug by putting all my weight on the shovel. Now remember that the ground was solid frozen and at the time I weighed around 200+ pounds. I was able to get the plug to 'Pop" but wait a second; it was not the plug that popped! It was my Lesche shovel that made the popping noise! I called Lesche and spoke with George Lesche; I explained that I had abused his shovel and bent the blade and broken the weld. I asked that Lesche make the necessary repairs and to send me the repair bill. I shipped my shovel back to Lesche and upon arrival George Lesche called me to ask how I had managed to 'break his shovel?' I went through the entire story again and it jogged his memory. He then thanked me for my honesty and not lying about how it was damaged. Two weeks passed and I received my repaired shovel at my doorstep. Inside the package was my shovel along with a Lesche digging hand trowel and a letter asking that I try his new Lesche hand trowel in exchange for a product review and the Lesche Hand Trowel was mine to keep! That was in 2002 and to this day I am still using the Lesche Hand Trowel that was given to me by George Lesche! I use the Lesche Hand Trowel every time I go out TH'ing here in Northern Virginia in very rocky ground. It is very well made and built to take on the worst of ground conditions. I have learned my lesson and no longer overly abuse my digging tools. This is the most fantastic hand trowel you will ever own and you will be so happy to own it that you will advise all your other TH'ing buddies to purchase one for themselves! ;-)
Review by David on July 18, 2019I have not tried it yet, but it looks really well built
Review by Mike on May 4, 2019Had this for around two months now. The sheath that comes is perfect and works great on my belt. The Lesh works better than I could have expected. It’s like a razor going thru the dirt. Though I been using cheap garden shovel prior to this. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a new hand digger.
Review by Oregondigger on September 14, 2016If you're looking for a good quality, low attention tool for cities and parks this is your best bet. It holds an edge very well and is easy to pack on the hip and still doesn't look like a hori hori knife or something "creeper like" in a park that will freak out the soccer moms. I found using a round file will make the serrated edge very sharp for roots.
