Digging Knife

Double-edged, with a serrated side for cutting through roots and a sharpened edge to get through tough grass and dirt. A digging knife is a must-have tool (second only to the pinpointer) for any metal detectorist. With a comfortable rubber grip, these knives enable plug cutting with ease. We have right and left serration options.



Protect your head from too much sun while you're out seeking treasure, or just show off your brand pride with a metal detecting cap. Sporting a Serious Detecting cap is a sure-fire way to be recognized by fellow fans of the hobby without saying a word. View all of our hats.



Some metal detectors come with a standard pair of headphones or none at all, making headphones a great upgrade. Headphones provide more clarity and allow one to pick up sounds hard to head on the external speaker alone. Popular choices for upgrading are Wireless or Waterproof options.
