Good one Hans.

I prefer oval handles so they don't twist when I dig/scrape ( one handed) 75cm handle. ( Detector (Z) in the left hand) yours could well be oval could not see in detail.

Have a similar point made out of a spring, but the scraper end is made out of a Farmers Plough Disc, every good steel and very thin, the bottom is about 11 or so cm wide.
