About Tom – a lifelong metal detector hobbyist.
About Tom – I started Handheld Metal Detectors because of my keen interest in this ever popular hobby.
Since I was a child, I have been watching a lot of videos and reading up on everything to do with metal detection. This is how I gave myself the best chance of unearthing some hidden treasure!
I had my first metal detector when I was 10 years old, and I have never looked back!
At that time, I was immediately blown away by the technology, along with the excitement and endless possibilities of what I unearth.
My parents encouraged me to be out as much as possible treasure hunting. I guess it was their way of getting me out in the fresh air and away from the distractions of video games.
Find some treasure with me!
My parents would enjoy seeing the treasures that I would come back with, sometimes utter tat, other times with items which still to this day sit on display in my home.
Handheld Metal Detectors was created with the aim of giving accurate, reliable, and free content. Including methods, techniques and locations for having a good hunt.
You can easily find articles about a variety of subjects relating the world of metal detection.
Intensive research about certain products has been carried out, too. I want to give you the best possible information and reviews. This includes the cons and pros of each product so you can make the right decision.
Nowadays, the internet is full of misleading information as well as wrong personal views. I always ensure that my information is well-researched and high-quality so that you can get the best out of your metal detecting hobby.
Have a nice day!
