"I purchased (Katana Straight router bit #17756) and got a chance to use it today. WOW! All I can say is fanfreakingtastic. I've used other bits by different mfg's. with reasonably satisfactory results. This Katana bit however slices through the heavy Maple I have here in NC like it was cheddar cheese. I work mainly with tree stumps and slabs to make tables and let me assure you, some of this stuff is murder on a cutting edge. After approx. 2 hours of pretty much non-stop use, I noticed there was a good deal of pitch residue covering the bit. I clean my bits with oven cleaner so I sprayed this one down and let it soak for about 15 mins, hit it with hot water and scrub brush and it's clean as new.
Micro-grain carbide: Premium fine carbide yields a longer cutting life, and allows multiple resharpenings.
High Hook & Shear angles: Allow cutter to slice smoothly into stock, producing clean, splinter free cuts.
Anti-kickback design: Round shoulder between cutters drastically reduces the chance of kickback.
Diamond honed cutters: Multi-axis CNC grinders polish a 600 grit mirror finish. Ground to +/- .005"
Baked on, heat resistant coating prevents sawdust, resin and pitch build-up.
Safety Gauge Shank: Lines etched on shank help seat the bit in the router collet. A Katana® exclusive.
