Ingalls Archaeological Supply offers handpicks specifically designed for archaeological work.
Each Ingalls Archaological Handpick - also known as "Patiche" - is 12 inches long with a hickory handle and a heat-treated alloy steel head.
The heads have a digging radius to facilitate cutting vertical balk walls, and beveled edges for raking loose rubble.
Ingalls picks come in four sizes based on the hoe width
No 45 -The Expedition
This pick is designed for long-term daily on-site production use.
The 45mm (approx. 1 3/4 ") wide hoe promotes efficient overburden removal without giving up the detailing advantages of a narrow pick point.
