The serrated edges are razor sharp to give smooth and flat bottom holes and the Ultra Sharp Spur provides the user with the ability to make an accurate starting hole every time.  The cutting edges are steep angled so you can produce holes that are smooth and flat, enabling you to create "chisel-like" curls for fast, clean chip removal.
