Excellent product (5/5), Aug 28, 2020

By Randall Rash (Newport KY US)

To whom it may concern,

I just wanted to thank you for a very fine product.

The Katana router bits are easily the best that I have ever used.

I build open baffle loudspeakers for home audio use and use the Katana top bearing bits with templates.

Some of the hardwoods that I use are very “hard” ….. purpleheart, bubinga, wenge, hard maple, etc.

The Katana bits are still sharp after repeated use and easily cut through these hardwoods.
The edges and finish are always perfect.

I have used router bits from several of your competitors in the past ….. some of them are well known “name brands” and expensive.
The Katana bits outperform all of them.

They are also reasonably priced, which is a big plus for a small business such as mine.

Best wishes,
Randy

Katana 3/4" Pattern Bit (5/5), Jan 29, 2016

By Marion L Mabe (Memphis IN US)

I have been using all sorts of different router bit brands lately, instead of relying solely on magazine reviews or name brands. As fine as they are, some of the Italian bits and even a high end American brand I have been loyal to, simply seem to have bearing issues. Other imports I have recently tried, skimp on carbide thickness, or lack fit/finish. This bit seems to be top notch in every regard. If it lasts a little better, I will be buying more Katana bits.


Best I have ever owned (5/5), Nov 13, 2013

By apple jack (White Lake NC US)

Received this bit yesterday and used it on 1-1/8" thick oak following my pattern. It was sheer pleasure using this bit. It cut the oak like it was butter. This is my first Katana bit but it will not be my last.

  • K-Premium Shear Angle Flush Trim Router Bits

  • Reviews
Cutters are polished by multi-axis CNC grinders to a 600 grit mirror finish.

2 flute, carbide tipped with totally enclosed ball bearing guides. The shear angle cutting flutes produce a smoother cut than the traditional straight fluted bits. Instead of chopping at the wood fibers at a 90º angle, the shear angle design allows for a smoother shear angle, slicing cut. Eliminates tear-out problems when routing end or cross grain on hard woods. 1/4" and 1/2" shank.

Much Better Then Straight Cut (5/5), Sep 7, 2014

By Jerry (Yankton So US)

Love this downward shear cut bit. I veneered a couple of DIY speaker cabinet's w/Maplewood veneer and this bit was just what I needed to eliminate any chipping or tearing of the veneer edges. The cut was smooth and easy and the finished product was first rate. This bit is a must have for veneering projects....


Eric (5/5), Sep 2, 2014

By eric adams (Katy TX US)

Great bit, the shear angled cutters provide superior finish, especially on end grain, and much less susceptible to tear-outs, I can push this bit further than straight cutters with modest reverse grain

I have this bit and the Shear Angle FTB, I would prefer all trim bits with shear cutters, they provide superior finish and much less susceptible to tear-outs

  • K-Premium Flush Trim Pattern Router Bit Kits

  • Reviews
Featuring baked on non-stick coating.

Remove precise amounts of material from the edge of doors or very large panels, or whenever size makes it difficult to use a router table. By varying the bottom bearing diameter, you can accurately remove 1/16" or 1/8" in two passes. Kits are available for stock up to 1-3/8" thick, or 2" thick. Kit includes 3/4" Top & Bottom Bearing Flush Trim/Pattern Bits with two 3/4" OD bearings, two additional bearings (5/8" and 1/2" OD), and a hex key.
(When using the bit, for the first pass adjust the bottom bearing to run at the bottom of your stock, removing the designated amount from the top of the stock. For the second pass, readjust the bit height to allow the top bearing to run along the previously cut top of your stock, completing the trimming operation).

Good Bit that needs modification (4/5), Apr 21, 2020

By BobG (Winston-Salem No US)

The bit is a good flush double bearing bit by itself. Where it fails to live up to it's potential in the kit is with the 2 additional smaller bearings.

I called cust. service and was impressed with how the person answered my questions. All along they were professional and courteous.

When using the smallest bearing you need to add 3 washers or 1-spacer between the bearing and the bit itself and 1 small washer between the bearing and the screw.

The small washers sent to me did not work well and wasn't made of quality material. Thank God I had thousands of electronics washers from yesteryear available to me.

I ground down then filed the screw because the screw was either too long or the shaft too short. I didn't have available the proper tap for the bit.

I am using this bit to elongate previously cut holes in older speaker cabinets that are being upgraded to slightly (1/16~1/4") larger diameters. It works well once modified.

Beautifully made.
