5" x 1-1/2" Archaeology Margin Trowel with Leather Handle
This specialty tool is similar to our typical margin trowels. The 5" x 1-1/2" pointed blade and tang begins as a forged single-piece of uniquely formulated high-grade carbon steel for extra toughness. Forging also assures product consistency. Blades are heat tempered with a special time-tested process to ensure uniform blade hardness. The forged steel blade and shank offer strength and integrity with no internal voids that could form if it was welded. Forged steel will not weaken or crack. Each blade is carefully polished to resist material from sliding. This tool is perfectly balanced with a comfortable weight and flexible blade for extended use. This Archaeology trowel features a thicker, beveled blade ideal for scraping and digging on a dig site. A must have tool for every amateur and professional archaeologist. The handle is placed at the perfect angle to reduce wrist fatigue and provide knuckle clearance. The leather handle is attached with a steel ferrule and balanced for ease of use. The seasoned wood handle is wrapped with genuine leather to for a comfortable grip. Leather helps absorb sweat and moisture for a firm grip. Proudly made in the USA.
