Caveat emptor

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

It seems to go from zero to hero all some have to do is lie.

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

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.
