Freud Router Bits are known for their exceptional quality, unmatched precision and maximum cutting life. The bits are carefully crafted using the best materials, the industry's most sophisticated manufacturing processes, and include exclusive Freud features such as TiCo Hi-Density Carbide and red Perma-SHIELD non-stick coating. Freud's bits also contain revolutionary, innovative designs such as Quadra-Cut and Double-Grind.
TiCo Hi-Density carbide is a specially formulated, highly compact Titanium Cobalt Carbide engineered and manufactured by Freud to maximize performance on all Freud cutting tools. Designed in Freud research and development laboratories, Freud's TiCo Hi-Density carbide is scientifically developed using Titanium Carbide, Cobalt and Tungsten (as well as proprietary elements), to produce a supreme product. Carbide size is extremely important when it comes to sharpness as well as the rate at which an edge wears. The larger the carbide grain, the faster an edge will wear. While standard carbides measure as large as 5 microns, and an advanced micrograin carbide can measure 1 micron, Freud's TiCo Hi-Density Carbide is miniscule in comparison at 0.8 microns, with a laminate blend as small as 0.4 microns.

Upon receipt, noticed substantial plastic container used by Freud, out of box sharpness and general appearance of high quality fit and finish.
Did not measure runout but bit seemed to run true with no unusual noise or vibration.
Found cut to be very smooth with an absence of flutter or tear out even with my variable grain. Even cut accross open mortises leaving all edges crisp.
Have read some reviews stating the bit can be "grabby". My view is that this bit is not grabby but the setup certainly can be. Routing freehand against the bearing I experienced a startling kick back upon entry that could have been dangerous. Added a very rigid pivot pin of sorts and everything went very well from there. Even used short climb cut at start which worked but felt this might be iffy. This was not the bit but how I was using it.
Summary: Excellent bit, worth the price. Amazon outstanding as usual.
A couple of thoughts: first, it's big. I am working with oak, so it's very grabby and you have to keep a secure hold on the router. Climbing cuts are not recommended, but it can be grabby the other way. The router speed should be high, and try to take small passes. Second, if you pivot at all around the collar on the vertical axis on your final pass, you'll leave a groove or a davit in the workpiece, and this happens instantaneously if you don't keep the router base fully seated flat on the top of the workpiece. Obviously that's not a flaw in the bit, just a caution.
In short, excellent bit.
