Hobby: Metal Detecting – Shovels

Once you’ve acquired your metal detector, your digger or trowel, the next step is finding a proper shovel. Shovels allow the user to dig wider and deeper holes. A proper shovel also allows the user to make a quick and clean recovery of items and allows the user to make less of a mess. This is especially important if you’re hunting in a park or a well-maintained lawn.

Lesche offers over 20 variants on their shovels. This is perfect for picking the correct tool for the job you’re faced with. Today we’ll focus on the Lesche Sampson Shovel.

The Lesche Sampson Shovel is lightweight and not bulky. It’s made from Aircraft quality Steel and is generally half the weight of a regular gardening shovel. It’s also smaller and shorter than your average gardening shovel. Using high quality aircraft steel also will cause less interference for your metal detector. It offers serrated edges that will cut through dirt and roots like a knife through butter.

The blade of the Lesche Sampson is at a right angle and allows the user to easily dig straight down. This produces smaller more exact digs while allowing the user to refill their holes much easier. It also has the option of a ball handle, a loop handle, or a T handle.

Because of it’s lightweight and blade design, using the shovel requires less energy to use. Which ultimately allows the user to hunt longer. Coming in at $70 it will pay for itself!
