UPDATE! Casey has diminished and changed the contour of his shovels so they are now 10X better!

You can see there is now a 10/20-degree angle on them which gives you some more width when digging your plug.

Casey has engineered these contours for very specific reasons and they have been tested and proved to be a better design. 

We have not had time to update the photos so you will see the old blade design in the other photos. 

Excalibur Lightweight Quality Aircraft Steel Shovel! Sir Kay Series

Excalibur Shovels are above and beyond the best metal-detecting shovels out there. Casey, the owner, does most of the work BY HAND! They are the lightest shovels on the market and are made of extremely high-quality lightweight aircraft steel. 

The steel handle is coated in a non-slip textured powder coating. The steel has an HRC rating of 49/50 which is higher than high-carbon steel (which most manufacturers use). 

The shovels are heat-treated, and then tempered, which allows the steel to have some flexibility. The Japanese did this thousands of years ago with their master sword craftsmanship. 

The Sir Kay Options Are:

T-Handle or D-Handle

Double Serrated

Colors: Black, Red, Blue, Orange, Gold, Purple, Pink, Green

Combination Colors: Purple/Gold, Black/Red, Black/Gold

Length: 31" inches

Blade Length: 8" inches

Blade Width: 4.25" inches

Weight: 2.75lbs


Excalibur Shovels come with a 5-year Warranty valid in the continental U.S. Buyer only pays for the return shipping. 


Q: Will my blade be subject to bending with the new design? 

A: No. The way Casey makes these shovels the blade will break before it bends. As we stated above, these are the highest-quality steel shovels you can get. They put under extensive testing and an enormous amount of care and science is behind the new design.  

Casey is a master metalsmith and stands by his work 100%. That is why they have a 5-year warranty. 

 Quality, Strength & Durability Excalibur Shovels are handcrafted in the U.S.A., by master fabricator Casey Dittman. Casey has a background in mechanical engineering. “I’ve been welding and metal fabricating for over 16 years.” He learned the importance of quality control and to use of the finest materials while fabricating exhaust systems for NASCAR and street vehicles. His work has been used at the highest levels of racing by Richard Childress Racing, Jack Roush, and many others. It has been featured in Popular Hot Rodding Magazine.

Casey is a 4-time President of the National Utah Token Society, Utah’s Metal Detecting Club.
