Interesting looking drill. Where is it available?
For Japanese binding, however, I prefer to punch rather than drill.
Drilling removes stock; punching doesn't. This means that after sewing or
placing the koyori in a punched hole, a gentle tapping with a mallet closes
the hole around the sewing material. This doesn't happen with a drilled hole.
