Check this bad boy out.  To get the full experience you have to watch the video of the guy drilling a hole with it.

Take a second look at the video, do you see any ice chips coming up, I don't.

Saying it even cuts backwards. It was obvious it was being turned backwards. JMO though.

I took the joke too far, sorry.

I found another auger that uses the same blades called the Nisus Tornado.  It actually looks like a half decent auger compared to that first atrocity.  As far as the flighting and the handle go I like it. Those blades are super weird but sure look easy to sharpen.

Here's a video of a guy using it on a drill and it actually cuts.  Hard to make much of a judgement from a 7 second clip though.

Yup, looks like he's drilling through a slushy too.
