The famous Estwing Geo/Paleo Pick GP100 has made a grand reentry after being out of production for several years. The handle has been beefed up to make the unit even stronger. It is 25 inches long with a total weight of 3 pounds. Painted steel with a soft vinyl grip. The light weight but great strength of this makes it a great field tool for any geologist or rockhound.
Not only is this a great digging tool but I use mine to help me navigate the steep slopes of mine tailings. Jab the tip in and pull yourself up then use the hoe end to cut a quick shelf to work from.
Estwing’s Special Edition Rock Pick is a solid steel, tool with a non-reflective matte black finish. The grip is a beautiful genuine leather.

The Estwing Special Edition Solid Steel Tool Rock Pick with a Non-reflective Matte Black Finish and a Leather Grip Handle makes a nice gift.
Even though I have the Estwing Special Edition Solid Steel Tool Rock Pick with a Non-reflective Matte Black Finish and a Leather Grip Handle on a shelf in my warehouse I don't have my own persoanal copy yet. If you were thinking of giving me a gift, this would be a nice choice. Hint, hint.
The Estwing Pointed-Tip Rock Hammer Set (13 oz Leather Handle) contains all the tools to start you on your road as a geologist or a rockhound. Or maybe you want to upgrade the tools you already have.
The Estwing 13 oz Pointed Tip Leather Gripped Rock Hammer E13P has the same handle length as the Estwing Leather Grip 22 oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer E30 with nine ounces shaved from the head plus some addition weight reduction due to the handle shape. The head still imparts some mechanical force due to the handle length but not as much as the Estwing Leather Grip 22 oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer E30. It'll just take more swings to do the same work.
