It’s difficult to make bits seem fresh and exciting, but Bosch is working it the best they can.  Personally I’d have liked to see them in capes, jumping off buildings or stopping bullets, but the new DareDevil bits are mean-looking and Bosch claims they cut cleaner and faster than previous spade bits — I guess that’s good, too.

The secret behind the boasting: a spur and reamer design which Bosch says is unique to the DareDevil. It scores the wood for a clean entry hole and features angled cutting edges that ream the hole for reduced breakout, leaving the hole cleaner than other bits. The bits will come in 4”, 6”, and 16” shaft lengths with heads that measure 1/4” to 1-1/2”.

The new shape is enough to raise our eyebrows, but we can’t wait to pit them head-to-head against a standard spade bit and see for ourselves. Pricing will depend on the length and size of the bit, starting at around $2 and working up to $11 individually, and Bosch says sets will also be available soon.

    The thing I like about standard spade bits is that they are easily sharpened with a file if you happen to hit a nail or dull it in any way. I think it’s pretty clear from the picture that this bit can’t be sharpened without reducing the width of the bit.
