I was bored and decided to re-handle an old cheese knife I have had for about 15 years. This was going to be a simple easy project.

I would like to drill my own pin holes in the tang because I am doing a series of 1/8 inch mosiac pins instead of the traditional rivets. The only problem I am running into is I can't drill the stupid holes. I have currently burned up three 1/8 bits and have not even punched the first of five holes. :angry1:

This stainless is crazy hard, I have never had this type of problem.

So the question is, what type of drill bit should I be using? I have burned through a Rigid, Bosch and Dewalt bit? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

The tang is probably hardened. You need carbide drill bits....doesn't matter the brand....they need to be carbide. Not titanium, not cobalt, etc.....Carbide.
