    This, I believe is the T-Rex but there's no markings on it I can find and really cannot remember. I looked at so many that were so similar. The collapsible handle I purchased from Amazon by a company called Inteletool that markets to forest fire fighters and off road enthusiasts. They make an interesting assortment of tools. I got the cheapest shovel I could find and removed the spade part. The handle insert is machined aluminum and I had to drill the rivets out to remove the OEM full sized spade. On a recent trip to the beach I gave it a good work out (as much as I could, it was not a target rich environment even not a lot of trash...) Despite the ability to extend to a full size handle, I discovered it does most jobs collapsed. I apply a slow steady force when digging in the wat sand and water. I've been know to get carried away and accidentally snap a healthy hickory handle in the garden so I try to take it slow. It's still bulky and a little heavy but does what it was designed for rather well. It just needs experience digging rings, nuggets, and rare coins.
