Great bit no buts (5/5), Nov 2, 2016

By Kent Cogan (Harrisonville Mi US)

Have been using these bits for a couple of years now and have not needed to sharpen them yet. I only carve on soft woods like white pine or on cedar. I do have 1 bit that needs to be sharpened after carving on some hard maple, but it was a large sign. I would recommend this bit to anyone wanting to carve signs or artwork into a wood surface.


Super Bit (5/5), Nov 2, 2015

By Dwight Casteel (Mesa AZ US)

Several months of use in my small CNC machine and it is still as sharp as when I got it. It is being used on wood, mdf and acrylics. About to order another as a back-up.


Great Bit but..... (3/5), Jul 6, 2015

By K Hurley (DONALSONVILLE GA US)

doesn't stay sharp for very long at all.


tom s (3/5), May 22, 2014

By tom Scaligeri (Rensselaer NY US)

it works good at first but then the tip broke off and trying to regrind the tip back on is pretty tough task.

**************************
MLCS Note: We do not recommend "trying to regrind the tip back on." This would be covered by our KATANA Lifetime Guarantee and eligible for warranty replacement.

Also, the most likely cause of a tip breaking off is impacting a foreign object in the material being cut.

Katana Solid Carbibe Spiral Flush Trim Bit (5/5), Nov 3, 2013

By Gary Sosebee (Kennesaw GA US)

I have been using these bits for a few years now and have come to the conclusion that they are the best you can buy. I use the #15099 daily in my small business. Before I found this bit, I had purchased different high dollar brand bits and always had the same problem. The bearing on them would come apart and destroy my template. This has never happened with this bit after many, many hours of use.

Thank you Katana for a great product.

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.

  • Katana® 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

  • Katana® 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).
