  1. Whatever tool you choose keep it Sharp, i always keep a file in my bag so I can do that, a blunt tool no matter what it is is next to useless. I dont remember who made it but like the Lesche its indestructible....I have to smile i can remember hunting years ago (early 70s) with Dad. "The old Coinshooter". He used a tool that looked like a sharpened length of conduit which is exactly what it was but he would jab around make a nice cut or probe around with it.. I saw him pull a ring out of the soil and he had centered it thru the ring...In the early 70s he found a huge mans gold ring in an old park in Longview Wa.. I never saw the ring nor did my Mom but he sold it to the jeweler that cleaned it and appraised it.. The next time i vissited they were driving a new Ranchero.....
