Due to a health problem in need to cut smaller clods and instead of a spade thought i would purchase evolution serrated digging trowel or digging knife can anyone tell me which one is more suitable for pasture fields, thanks in advance for any advice. Cheers Dave.

Hi Dave, I don’t know if I am breaking any rules here so have posted on the forum rather than pming you, so if I am breaking the rules I can be chastised.

But if you do decide to go with the evolution digging knife I have one I have used on one dig only before deciding it was overkill to carry as well as a spade so instead now carry a 4” pointing trowel.

It comes with the faithful leather pouch and I would let you have it for £15 posted as it is just gathering dust in my car.

But that said I do believe if you are having trouble using a spade, I can’t see digging using a small hand digger being less hard work. It would be quite the opposite I would imagine.

Hello 'chip', u;@ It was considered a minor transgression which was performed so nicely (plus you caught me in a moment of exceptional weakness) so your reply stands as Posted. :D Regards ss47

Thank you sweepstick,
I will add this is not a general for sale ad, but am willing to help another detectorists out if they think it will help.

In fact, pm me your address dave and I will post it out to you for free. If you can’t use it just return it. If you can I could do with the karma. :D
