Yes indeed, I just ordered a couple from Big Dog at The Woodcraft Shop in Bettendorf, Iowa.......

I love those burrs when I am working on Mesquite or other hard wood.

Called Yudis to order one to try and found out they are nothing but Typhoon burs with a different name and color. Same company. I already have and love them. Thought I had found something new.

May be the same company, but I think they are made just a bit different. I can use these called Saburr and they do not load up as fast on soft or pitchy wood. I think you will like them. I also had some Typhoon and I am convinced these are better. Might be in my head, but I believe they are better. I know Ed Walicki of fishcarver.com used and sold them and he also was convinced of the good work they did.
Well anyway good luck if you order some.
Gene

I love these bits and agree with Doug ...they are the best! I order one...which then started to order a lot of them...some are expensive...but they are worth every cent I paid for them. They are my favorite and I order them on-line from Wood Carvers Supply. They ship things faster then anyone that I have dealt with. I am sure you will be pleased...I love the fact they don't load like the others. Di

I am about to buy some Kutzall burrs, so the topic is of interest to me. I noticed in an old catalogue ( woodcarvers supply) that they sold Extreme burrs, but I can't find them on their web site. Nor can I find them on the Kutzall direct site.

However I did notice the Saburr burrs on some sites.

Do they still make Kutzall extreme? If so, how do they compare to Saburr?
I am guessing from what is said, perhaps its better to buy the Saburr in preference to the Kutzall ( at the extra price)

Any comments would be appreciated, given I need to post them to Australia.

If you want Kutzall I have 4 or 5 I'll sell you real cheap. They are all right but the Typhoons or Saburr tooth are much better in my opinion. I would recommend you buy the Saburr tooth burs. My .02 cents

I like my Kutzall extra fine burrs but the bigger ones not so good.., then typhoon burrs good for basswood,.. but for roughing out and hard woods... I go with Saburr. I feel they are better burr for that kind of work plus they have larger shapes that typhoon does not. I do not know if it is me, but Saburr does not seem to jump or skip as much ...smoother and easier to use. Di
