For the beginner metal detectorist, after acquiring your metal detector the next step is finding the right digger or trowel. Do not make the mistake of buying a cheap digger. The worst thing is being out in the middle of nowhere with a lot of hits and your digger breaking. Most general use trowels or diggers are made for lightweight gardening and simply aren’t durable enough for busting roots, thick weeds, and dry dirt.
One of the most popular digging tools on the market today is the Lesche Digging Tool. It offers a serrated blade on either the right or left side. Typically right-handed users will want the serrated blades on the right side and left-handed users will want the blades on the left side. This digger is specifically made for treasure hunting. Let’s take a closer look at the Lesche Digging tool.
The Lesche Digging Tool offers a large, comfortable, plastic handle. The handle is also ribbed so it doesn’t slide in your hand while digging. The handle is also bright red so its easier to see in the dark. It also offers a handle guard that protects your hand from sharp objects. The natural stabbing motion is also a lot easier on your hands. The blade is made of aircraft-quality steel and is incredibly durable.
The Lesche Digging Tool is 100% American made. It’s manufactured in Bridgeton, NJ and comes with a 5-year warranty. Lesche has been family owned since the 1950s by Walter Lesche and family. The Lesche Digging Tool can be found online for around $45.
