    Non-Metallic Digging Tool (Survey)

    Have been doing some R&D the last 3-5 months on a Non-Metallic digging tool I designed and would like to sell on the TN website. Looked around on the TN site...but could not find a "Survey" function anywhere... So thought I'd throw a picture out there and see what kind of interest there might be in the metal detecting world. Currently working with a local company to produce a sheath for said digging tool. Anyway...please respond with your thoughts...feedback...and or price point questions for both items. Have 5 different handle colors (Black, Orange, Green, Red, Blue)

    Toecutter,

    I'll get you a picture of the prototype I've been using for R&D in the morning when I have some natural sunlight coming in the window. I've been abusing the hell out of the prototype just to see if I could break it...no luck yet...About the only thing I've noticed so far is the very tip gets a little bit worn...and you will see that in the picture(s). Good news is...pretty easy to get the tip back to a sharp edge...just hit it with a flat disk sander or belt sander.

    As far as price...that's kind of why I'm throwing this out there...to get feedback...thoughts on price point...etc...etc. I'm thinking $19.95 for just the tool...no sheath...or $$29.95 for both.

    Pretty much just trying to gauge interest at this point before starting up a vendor section on TN...testing the waters...so-to-speak.

    Toecutter,

    Nope...don't think so...probably weighs about a pound or so...maybe more.

    The instructions say, do not use as a pry tool. Sorry yours broke. Probably the best digger out there.
    When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

    It is strong not breakable lol I was surprised 250lbs of raw steal was pulling on it. (Ok maybe not raw) It also fits perfectly in a slot on my mule pack I got made from your boy on here. I like it. Iíll take a picture and post it later. Thanks Got-Good-Tones!

    Looks like I should be getting some feedback from DrTones24k as well...sent him down a Non-Metallic Digging Tool last week. Don't know if he will be doing a video review or just do a write-up...video review would be awesome...

    It made from acetal? Pretty much every non metallic tool i made suffered from bad abrasion problems. They either abraded quickly or I made them too thick to be useful. Hopefully you'll have better luck than me.

    Just wondering since i dispose of many pounds of POM scrap that size in Delrin, Celcon and generic acetal. Plus plenty of uhmw. Thought you might have a use for it.
