BIG JOHN METAL DETECTING HAND DIGGER
The BIG John Metal Detecting Hand Digger is an essential metal detecting accessory and tool that every detectorist must have by default as part of their kit. It is especially useful when detecting in well-manicured lawns where you want to leave no trace that you had every detected there.
The Hand Digger features a double-edge blade with sharp serrations on the left blad and a saw tooth edge on the right blade which makes cutting and digging through grass, sods and roots a breeze.
Made from 3mm stainless steel the BIG John Hand Digger is extremely durable. A concave blade adds additional strength as well as prevents a build up of moist soil or clay from sticking to the blade.
The oversized knuckle plate has been designed in such a way that you can apply downward pressure with your other hand which makes it easier to push the blade into hard soil.
A 6mm hole in the centre of the knuckle plate makes it possible to connect a lanyard, especially useful if you tend to leave your metal detecting accessories behind.

Metal Detecting Code of Ethics
As detectorists we try abide to Metal Detecting Code of Ethics and when it comes to digging holes it is alway recommended to use proper tools fit for purpose. The Big John Metal Detecting Relic Spade is designed with this in mind and enables you to dig neat plugs. We recommend using the semi-plug technique which allows the grass to remain connected to the root system giving the best chance to regrow, leaving no brown dead grass spots.
Remember to never dig and leave holes uncovered. Most importantly leave no trace except your footprints.
