    I would have loved one of these, & ordered one. Checked the delivery which i thought was somewhat over priced at £7.95 for delivery which can take up to 5 days. Next day courier service is only £6. However, i ordered the black version from their website, paid for it & waited. After 6 days, nothing had arrived so messaged their Facebook page as it stated ‘Usually replies within the hour’ & waited, & waited, & waited……. It was only after posting an enquiry on their Facebook page wall did i get any response. Only to be told we were very sorry but they were out of stock. I would have expected this when ordering it & not having to wait & chase up the order myself only to be told they were out of stock. Not very good service. But i’m sure plenty of people have done ok & are happy with their spades. However, my experience with Black ADA has been very poor. Good luck to those ordering from them, but i won’t be using them again. First impressions last. Rubbish service. 🙁

    Dear DETECTORIST: According to your shovel, you found a german WW2 dog tag (Erkenneungsmarke). Please, please report it and the place you find it to the DD-WASt (Wehrmachtauskunftsstelle) at to let them inform the relatives. Thank you so much.
