Designed specifically for soft materials like wood, leather and plastics that can otherwise be problematic to drill, these wonderfully innovative Japanese drill bits produce exceptionally clean, crisp holes.

It turns out that they are also absolutely brilliant for use with a hand cranked eggbeater drill, the tip geometry reliably produces beautifully clean holes in wood with no ragging.

Hooked spurs clear any remaining waste from the perimeter of the cut, these are followed by semi-circular wings that incise a little deeper to part the waste from the surrounding material. A curved cutting edge then planes the waste out and sends it up the flutes.

For plastics use a low speed setting , for fibrous materials like leather use your highest speed setting, and in both cases introduce the bit to the material gradually.

Presented in a lovely canvas tool roll - it's kawaii !

The set contains sizes:

3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 5.5mm, 6mm, 7mm, 7.5mm 8mm, 8.5mm, 9mm, 9.5mm, 10mm, 10.5mm, 11mm, 11.5mm, 12mm

If bits purchased individually: £166.90

    Pricey, but you really are getting what you pay for here. Very clean cutting, the hole looks like its cut with a laser entry and exit. They do, as stated, work exceptionally well with an eggbeater drill from about 6mm down. Simply top drawer Japanese quality
