Future 2018 Anniversary Edition

In 1998 the first metal detector of the Future series was manufactured by Andreas Krauss, one of the CEOs of OKM. After many years of development and improvement, we are proud to present the metal detector Future 2018.

Join thousands of other adventurers and metal detectorists to find hidden treasures, ancient artifacts and historical valuables from mankind’s past. For many of them treasure hunting is not only a hobby or passion – it became a mission. Today many people live and work as professional prospectors or treasure hunters.

The limited Future 2018 Anniversary Edition is no longer available. We recommend Fusion Light or Fusion Professional as replacement.
