Motley has rebranded from Motley Scoops to Motley Digging Tools and released their new hand digger the Grass Knife.

The company known for its colorful metal detecting sand scoops has expanded its line to include a hand digger, which they coined the Grass Knife. Like the sand scoops, the Grass Knife has a unique design of hexagons and a colorful powder coating. 

Besides the quality engineering, colors, and attractive design, what sets it aside from other metal detecting hand diggers and trowels is that the Motley Grass Knife is one of the lightest diggers on the market, weighing 11-11.1oz  / 312-315 grams depending on the color.

Founder and CEO of Motley Digging Tools, Bert Van Heerde explains, “Our goal was to make one of the lightest Grass Knives in the hobby. In our research, we discovered most metal detecting hand diggers are up to almost a pound. We knew with the right engineering and manufacturing we can make one lighter.” Further saying “As a company, we want to be recognized for constantly seeking innovation in the metal detecting digging tool market. Our management, including myself, consulted and surveyed numerous metal detectorists taking in their likes and dislikes about hand diggers on the market to find ways we can innovate, make them lighter and stronger hand diggers. I think you will be happy with our Grass Knife”   

Made for both right and left-handed detectorists, the digger is constructed with an easy-grip handle and a blade that has sharp teeth on both sides designed to make clean plugs. Cutting through grass, roots, and the ground. The Grass Knife is engineered and manufactured using durable, quality tempered steel that is heat-treated, and the blade is both cold-pressed and heat-treated.
